Great idea, we were just talking about the balcony partitions as we have balcony cabins booked for next year.

If the cabin steward isn't around, a multi-tool, duck tape, and some ingenuity have been known to work.

Someone posted a picture of a mini-surge strip to increase the number of outlets in the cabin. It is made by Belkin, I think and is a brilliant idea.

oops, duct tape of which duck tape is a brand, I believe.

I always bring a 3 conductor extension cord.

Also, most battery charges are dual volatage (your mileage may vary). A relatively inexpensive adaptor plug allows you to utilize the second outlet.

Multi tool???? Please explain?
This sounds like a good tool to have since we have all 6 baconies on the AFT of the ship. The Cabin Steward may not be around every time we want these doors opened.

Thank you for the wonderful pictures Liz and Phil. I sent them to my group.

The cabin steward isn't going to open and close the doors during the cruise. If they open them, they typically stay opened. Also, when opened, they may interfere with operation of a caibn door leading to the balcony (like block it).

A swiss army knife is a kind of a multitool. I was talknig more about one on steroids. An all purpose gadget with all kinds of bells and whistles. and maybe a butter knife.

The duct tape to keep the thing open so it doesn't swing around wildly.

Not all partitions are capable of being open

Once the door is opened by the cabin steward, can we close it ourselves?

We may not want the doors opened in the morning(sleeping, dressing or doing other things ) We may just want them opened for a while in the evening...early evening before (sleeping, dressing and other things )

I'm just the bartender, not the engineer.

May the force be with you!

There is a metal rod that slides up out of the top corner (along the rail side) that hooks to the wall/bulkhead/window along where the chairs would be. On our next cruise in September I'm going to get a pic of this and add it to the gallery.

Please do not let them swing in the breeze and motion of the ship at night !! We had that problem on our cruise....thats why I took the pic in the first place. To illustrate what NOT to do with them.

Perhaps someone that is more knowledgeable could answer....the tool looks like it is an Allens wrench.

Cetainly we don't want folks "disabling or tampering" with a safety mechanism, but there should be a way for folks to take care of the door when they wish.

It isn't an allen wrench. Maybe take a picture of the offical tool and the fastener?

Once it's open, it's open. He's not going to open and close it for you each day so sounds like you shouldn't open them if your concerned about privacy.

They can swing back and forth if not secured make noise as they bounce from side to side. Really not worth opening-IMHO
