I think you are write about the duct tape for the suitcases. But don't use duct tape to keep the door open. Use a piece of wood that is about like 5-6 inches long and about a 1/2 diameter. I am not sure about the real dimensions, I am just trying to picture the piece of wood.

Also people have said that they have asked their stateroom stewart for a piece of wood to keep the door open and they have given it to them.
I keep a wooden dowel that is 3/4" to 1" diameter (round) and about 8-10 inches long with our cruise paraphanalia. I pack it when we book a balcony room and just pop into the open door between the hinges. It works perfectly for holding the door open and takes up very little room in my bags.
