Default Hanging banners off of your balcony cabin railings

Has anybody ever seen this done? Is it permissable to do so?



I probably should have ascertained this before paying $50+ to have one made up!

Default who knows, should be

I know lights are ok. I see no reason why you can't. Which cruise is it for? We have to work out rope lights for ours!!!

Something tells me it's a no-no. If I were you I would call the cruise line directly and ask. Talk to the PR department, as I doubt anyone in sales would be able to give you a definitive answer.

Good luck, though. I think it's a cute idea.

Default go for it

I say you go for it. If they see it and want it taken done, then do so. Otherwise it's up!! Ok, Kathy now you know, bit of a rebbel (did I spell that right?)here. Could be in trouble with me as a roomie!

I agree with Pat, but call the cruiseline just to cover yourself but I suspect it's more of a fire hazard and a security concern.

Enjoy your cruise, my dear.

I prefer to put a poster on my door that says CRUISE-ADDICT.COM. It is so much easier to find my cabin. If I forget my poster..... I use a ship post card that is given to you in the cabin. I carry my tape stuff with me.

I have seen the ship workers wash the balcony windows once per week during the week. So if you have a banner it will get all wet. You are not supposed to leave anything out on the balcony because it will get wet when they wash the window and the balcony. I saw it in the NCL Cruise ship.

Forgot about the washing, it was nightly on NCL Dawn. As long as it is tied tight it should hang in. Either way deck lights and our door will be the best since we are sailing on the Love Boat!

Hmmm, single women calling attention to themselves using banners . . . that can be good or bad.

The banner says nothing about single women.

It says, "The weather is here, wish you were beautiful"

I stand corrected, but while the ship is at sea . . . who will see it?

Default who cares

Who cares who sees it. It is all for fun. Other ships in port will see it. Who will see our lights, we will and we are all that matters.

The banner worked great! It hung in there even when we hit the tropical storm outside of Costa Rica. Man our ship was a'rockin'! I knew the Captain from a previous sailing I was on and had no problems hanging the banner whatsoever!

I will post pictures as soon as I've unpacked and found my digital to upload them from.
