Cruise Ship Cabin Organization and Stateroom tour Carnival Miracle


Hey Cruisers, it’s Sheri with CruiseTipsTV. We are
onboard the Carnival Miracle, and we are going to show you around our stateroom. Now normally
when we give you a tour of our stateroom, we do it in it’s cleanest fashion with none
of our stuff unpacked, and you get to see … basically, the stateroom. But we’ve
had a few requests from people who would like to see how we keep our stateroom organized.
So, we’re going to walk you around, show you where we keep things, and along the way
talk to you about some of Carnival’s policies, and what we like to pack on our cruise. So
let’s go! Now a lot of the cruise lines have these clever little narrow shelves. We
like to store things like our beach towels here. Our wine that we got on the first night
at the steakhouse. And some water, our thermos, and of course some vanilla that I’m taking
home to a friend. These are also great places to store sunglasses, sunscreen and anything
else that would fit nicely in a narrow shelf. Now we are going to take a look at how we
organize our refrigerator. So, of course, on the first day we get aboard we ask our
stateroom steward to completely empty the fridge of it’s mini bar setup. And we combine
a few things in our refrigerator. We have, right here you’ll see some of the water
that Carnival now provides. They don’t allow you to bring plastic onboard anymore. So you
can purchase a twelve pack of these 16.9 oz bottles for $2.99 for a twelve pack. Which
is a great deal, so we’re doing that now. And we also bring along of course our own
sodas. Club soda, Diet Coke, things like that. So we just fill our fridge that way, and leave
it that way for the rest of the cruise. Now we are going to take a look at this nice little
vanity area here. Carnival of course has a standard awkward outlet setup here. So we’ve
plugged in our power supply, and our wonderful USB charging hub that we are going to tell
you about in another video. This thing is a life saver, and we’ll have four, five,
six, seven devices going on this all at once. Now we are going to take a look at some of
the drawers here. This drawer is really flat, so we put all of our paperwork in it. As you
can see, we have our Funtimes here. Battery chargers, our Pocket Vault, water proof container
for keys and credit cards and things when you are at the beach. Hand sanitizers, and
this is my little laundry pack. And this here, is of course your standard blowdryer area,
and we keep a little bit of paper work here, including receipts in this area as well as
one dollar bills for tipping room service. This is a great place to keep them so you
don’t have to stumble for your wallet every time room service comes. Next drawer down,
sunglasses and goggles for the whole family. This is my makeup and hair area. And, the
last drawer here, swim-suits, cover-ups, hats, things like that. Next we are going to move
along to the shelve storage area here. Pop on inside you can see that this is where we
leave all of our miscellaneous that we really don’t need for the rest of the cruise, because
surprise, I can’t reach it. So, up here with the life jacket we just have some suitcases,
a purse, a photo that we bought, and that’s about it. This area here is my husband’s
folded clothes. Next shelf down, my clothes, and our six year old son’s clothes, and
of course, down on the bottom pretty much all of our shoes. Alright, the next two banks
in the closet here are for hanging storage. So this first area here is my husband’s
and son’s hanging clothing, and down on the bottom you’ll see our first of two pop-up
hampers, which we cannot live without, and of course, my husband’s dress shoes. And
on to the next. Next area here is my dressy clothes, the robes that came along with the
room, and a second pop-up hamper down here on the bottom. And, now I want to show you
one of my favorite things to pack on a cruise. And it’s this handy jewelry organizer. I
like to roll this up and stick it in my suitcase, and take all my jewelry and hair accessories
with me and leave it hanging in the closet so nothing gets lost. Pretty handy. Of course
up here we have life jackets. That’s not too exciting. Another thing that we’ve found
over the years that’s super convenient, and actually a little bit of a newer thing
for us is these magnetic wall hanging clips. As you can see they’re really magnetic.
Difficult to get off. What I like to do is put a little grab and run section here right
by the door. So we have a little sweatshirt here for our son because he runs cold in the
dining room. This is my shawl because I run cold in the dining room. And of course, who
would want to forget their cruise card holder. So this is where I keep my hand sanitizer,
my cruise card my coffee loyalty card, things like that. And this is just really nice, so
when you are running out of the door quickly you never forget anything. And last, but certainly
not least, lets take a look at how we organize our restroom. We are going to start with this
cool little door hanger here. This is just a clear plastic organizer that I got at Target
probably ten years ago, and it houses all the things that are kind of tiny that I don’t
want out on the counter top. So for example, nail clippers, tweezers, scissors, chapstick
first-aid equipment, and some toothbrushing, and vitamin type items. Now we are going to
take a look inside the bathroom. Carnival has some beautiful little glass shelves that
keep everything visible in your bathroom. So, up here, because it’s unlikely, hopefully,
that we’ll need it we have some medication for our child, because as we know, cruise
ships do not supply good medications for children. So, if he were to get sick with fever or allergy
we like to have these things on hand. So, we keep those here. Then of course, I have
some nail polish here – critical. And this is an area where we keep our toothpaste, a
little bit of makeup, things like that. Some vitamins. And we are going to switch over
to the other side here and look at these other glass shelves. And our second set of shelves
over here is grouped kind of by area. Up here we have all of our sun care products. And
then here I have hair care items. And this is just general skin care down here. Carnival
no longer provides any kind of toiletry item. So, of course, here in the shower. I don’t
know if you can see this. It’s a little bit tricky. They do have some shower gel,
and shampoo provided. But we like to bring our own bar soap, conditioner, and travel
size hair care products. If anyone is wondering, this is cabin 6262. And yes, I’m standing
in the shower. 6262 is an aft extended view balcony on the Carnival Miracle. And we are
going to close this video by taking a peek at the gorgeous view from the balcony. Thanks
for watching, and until next time, we’ll see you on the high seas. The um, er, eee,
probably going to have to start that over, huh?

  1. I love your videos. we cruise about 3 times a year, as we already live in Ft Lauderdale, so…no flight fees. I've learned a great deal from you. I'm definitely stealing the pop up hampers, and having the attendant clear the fridge! I'm a Loyal Royal, but what is your favorite cruise line? I'm looking to try Princess next.

  3. That cruise line holder is a good idea, we're going to do that. Cheap vanilla in Mexico, next time we're stocking up! Still no news on what's replacing the Miracle, but we got our eyes on Hawaii in the next 5 years.

  4. Thanks for sharing. We are going on our first cruise in February on the Carnival glory, and I noticed you bought waters, are you able to bring any other drinks on board or do you have to buy them all? Thanks!

  5. oh wow. im really amazed at how much stuff you guys take. we travel light and dont take nearly as much clothes and other stuff as you guys. well to each his own.

  6. This is a great video,I am going on my third Carnival cruise and this was very useful on how to better utilise the storage space.

  7. I'm going on my fourth cruise in June, but it will be the first time I'm in a cabin without my family. This video was very helpful because I have a lot of trouble with organization!

  8. Wait this new thing I learned last time I was on the cruise the fridge was locked and never asked to unlock it I had my own drinks too. So when u ask to unlock it and empty it out to put you own drinks do you get charged?

  9. does Carnival offer any onboard savings perks that most people don't know about before they go on their Cruise if so let me know thanks have a great day

  10. @cruisetipstv can you do a review on good key card holders because all the ones I bought have broken half way through the cruise thank you so much and I love your channel โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

  11. I've been watching as many of your videos as I can before my cruise on the Carnival Freedom July 9th! But my question is: are the hair dryers any good? Or should we bring our own?

  12. one other thing i wanted to ask was what is the most you can put,have,spend when it comes to the sail&sign card

  13. Wow, 6262 sounds pretty noisy from what I heard on your video. Hope you get some good sleep with all that noise!

  14. Loving the Vlogs – couple of questions I'd like to ask. What is the coffee loyalty card. And how much do I need to tip room service . Thanks ๐Ÿ‘

  15. what's a coffee loyaltie card im a coffee girl and I love my coffee and the lido coffee wasn't all that great when I went

  16. Great videos! We are going on our first cruise this year. I love the way you organize everything. I'm really thinking about getting some of those packing cubes and magnetic hooks. On our last vacation (land vacation to Vegas) I got so annoyed with not being able to find stuff in my bag or in the room. The hampers were also a great idea. I probably won't wash my clothes on the ship, but at least it will help keep in separated from my clean until debarkation. Thanks for sharing all the tips. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. I love your tip for keeping $1 bills on hand in a drawer for room service – never thought of that really good idea especially with your youngling, they are always ready to eat when you hang up after ordering room service, lol !

  18. Great video …….It helped me to organise my stateroom ……….thanks for making this video……๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

  19. This is a great video even for those who have already cruised before. My suggestion for you though is to buy toothbrush head covers to avoid any and all germs that are floating in the air. You can buy 2 for a dollar, they are pretty cheap. Thank you for your video. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. great video- AS USUAL. mini bars are cool, what I do is take THE CONTENTS ALL out and store it in a ziploc under the vanity, and at the end of the cruise, I put them back in the fridge, in the bag with a note that states clearly UNUSED AND DO NOT CHARGE!!!! I use the fridge for goodies from the buffet, for PORT DAYS, like grapes and fruit cups (Yes I take RUBBERMAID rectangle CONTAINERS- I pack undies in them going to save luggage space).

  21. Hi Sheri. I was watching a channel on my Roku called CruiseAddicts and this video along with several other videos of yours are listed. They had tags saying visit our friends at CruiseTipsTV. Kinda cool.

  22. I have a tip for you. For your necklaces, which if yours are like mine, they get all knotted up. I use Glad Press n' Seal. I wrap each necklace individually, and the self-sticking nature of Press n' Seal, prevent knotting and doesn't take any room.

  23. I always go cheap and do inside, and I don't think…I'd remember a frig???? I could B wrong….wow what if they do, and I just don't look, my wife accuses me of that…

  24. Cherie: Youโ€™re so โ€œmagnetic!โ€ Hint: I LOVE magnetic hooks and clips for my stateroom. I bring a roll up magnetic whiteboard to post our daily schedule and other pertinent info. It can be stuck just about anywhere and also be cut into various sizes! Donโ€™t forget the magnetic pen holder, too.

  25. Love all the good info. We're Carnival fans and have 3 cruises booked for '18. Re: the pop-up hampers. For the trip home, do you empty an stow the clothes back in the suitcase or will the full hammer fit in a bag. TIA and keep the videos coming.

  26. Please donโ€™t put your toothbrushes on the side close to the commode. Move them on your next trip as far away from the toilet at possible.

  27. "Carnival no longer provides any toiletries"….."These are the dispensers for the shampoo and shower gel that Carnival provides"
