Making the most of your inside cruise cabin

Hey cruisers, I’m Sheri with Cruise Tips
TV, back with another subscriber-inspired episode. Wayne Sheng writes “we’ve booked an inside
cabin for an Alaskan cruise, what are your tips to make the most of an inside cabin”? Wayne also wants to know what ONE thing you
shouldn’t miss on a cruise to Alaska. We answered that part of his question in Vlog
#5, so be sure to check that out. Well, Wayne, thanks for asking. We’ve sailed twice to Alaska in inside cabins,
and yes the first time was a little cramped, but we’ve learned how maximize the space
since then. Here are a few tips, mostly focused on how
to organize your stateroom and get the most out of limited cabin space:
#1- On embarkation day, unpack and slide your luggage under your bed. It will be out of sight and out of the way
for your entire cruise and won’t take up valuable closet space. #2- Use your wall space wisely by packing
some super strong magnets, like these. We like to create a “grab and go” area
near our front door where we hang sweatshirts, cruise cards on lanyards, hats, and anything
else might we not want to forget on the way out the door. #3- Pack a pop up hamper to pop in your closet
to keep dirty clothes in their place. #4- Maximize your closet space by packing
hanging organizers, for jewelry, watches and other small items. You’ll likely have more closet space than
countertop space, so planning ahead in this area can really pay off. If you have a lot of devices that require
charging, look into a USB charger like this, and leave the other chargers home. #5- And lastly, this isn’t really an organization
tip, but it’s something we think is useful. On most ships, you can set your tv to a bridge
cam channel, so you can always see what’s going on outside. You can watch the ship glide in and out of
ports, and even check the sea conditions. This helps minimize that cooped up feeling
that sometimes comes with an inside cabin. If you like these tips, be sure to check out
our video on how to organize your stateroom where we go into a little more detail about
how we lay out our stateroom, use our drawer space, and maximize storage space in the bathroom. That’s it for this episode. Thanks for watching. If you have any tips you’d like to share
with Wayne, please leave them in the comments below. Until next time, we’ll see you on the high
seas! Hey, click me to subscribe.
