Handy Things in a Cruise Ship Cabin
In most cruise ship cabins there is a hairdryer in the cabin. Normally it is stored in a drawer in the vanity unit/desk area or it could be attached to the wall.
2. Shower Gel & Shampoo
Some ships have installed on the shower wall a shower gel and shampoo dispenser, so you don’t need to bring your own onboard. While other cruise lines may have mini bottles of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion.
3. Washing Line
In the shower cubicle on most cruise ships, there is a washing line that pulls out. This is very handy for hanging up your swimsuits to dry.

4. Bottle Opener
There may be a bottle opener on the bathroom wall. This might be useful if you are drinking in the cabin bottles of beer or soda.
5. Magnetic Walls
The walls in the cabin are magnetic. You can either bring or buy magnets to stick on the wall or bring magnet hooks if you like to hang items up in your cabin like handbags, jewellery, hats, etc.
6. Plug Sockets
The plug sockets on most cruise ships are 110V and 220V, so you can bring North American and European electricals or adapters. You may even find USB sockets on some ships.
Handy Things in a Cruise Ship Cabin – Bonus Tips
Usually, when you arrive onboard there are not many clothes hangers in the closet, ask your cabin steward for extra hangers as soon as you meet them.
This is a tip for the Brits – There are no kettles in the cabin to make tea. So make use of room service or bring drinks down from the bar or buffet.
