Magnetic Hooks

Magnetic Hooks for Cruise Travel

(Last Updated On: July 6, 2018)
Magnetic Hooks?
 Bringing a power strip and understanding that all the walls in your stateroom are made of steel are quite possibly the best two cruise stateroom hacks you may ever learn.

You see, the walls and ceiling of your stateroom are all made of metal suitable for organizing your stuff with magnets. Harnessing the magnetic potential of your cruise ship stateroom is a fantastic way to get organized and greatly increase your storage as you cruise.

When we cruise, we bring two different types of magnetic hooks along with us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Magnetic hooks like these can be used to post or hang. . .

cruise activity schedules (Cruise Compass, Personal Navigator, Fun Times, etc.)

– excursion tickets

– art auction information

-special party invitations (Cruise Critic, Wine tasting, Helipad Experience, etc.)

-lanyards and key cards (SeaPass, Sign and Sail, Key to the World, etc.)

-hats

-beach coverups

-bathing suits

-jewelry

-windbreakers

-anything else you can think about hanging from a wall or ceiling

 

The best magnetic hooks for these types of applications are the smaller white hook magnets as seen above. These magnets can hold up to 9 pounds.

Our stateroom attendant on our last Med cruise (Celebrity Relection July 2017) was amazed by these magnets and planned to order himself a set for his crew quarters.

The other type of magnetic hook we bring with us are a larger and stronger model, these can hold up to 20 pounds

 

 

 

 

 

 

These larger magnets are great for. . .

-de-wrinkling your clothes.

Use them to hang up your clothes in the bathroom while you shower or to keep your clothes hanging at eye level when you use a wrinkle release spray. 

and hanging heavier objects like . . .

– binoculars (by the balcony door for easy access)

-a hair dryer, curling wand or flat iron straightener

– snorkelling mask and snorkel

– hanging tolietry kits

-anything else you can think about hanging from a wall or ceiling

windbreakers and jackets ( Alaska Cruise)

The larger, silver magnets will support just about anything you will hang from them.
-Update: Another novel idea for magnetic hooks

I recently saw this great idea for magnetic hooks on the internet.

Staterooms on cruise ships are not the most private of places. Whether traveling with children, a travel companion who keeps different sleep hours or  sharing a stateroom with a friend, try this idea.

If you put a few magnetic hooks on the ceiling, you can rig a shower curtain as an temporary room divider or privacy curtain. An inexpensive shower curtain is all you would need and it wouldn’t take up much room in your luggage.
