It never even occurred to me to ask the room steward (being a newbie on my first cruise). We had 4 people in our room and I was worried about the same thing. I just used a bunch of the wire hangers like you get from the dry cleaners. I doubled up shirts on some of the hangers and then just brought more. They don't take up any room. I just slid them in one of the outside zipper compartments on my suitcase.
