Default Hangers

Are there plenty of hangers in the staterooms? Since we have to pack more than just tee shirts I was wondering if I should bring some hangers.

There are usually plenty of hangers in the closet and your cabin steward will gladly bring you more if you need them.

I, or I should say my wife, usually packs all the stuff that needs to be hung in a rolling suit bag. She puts them on wire hangers (Sorry Mommy Dearest). The suits and some dresses we will transfer from the wire hangers to the better hangers in the closet. However it makes unpacking and packing easier. You just go from the suit bag to the closet and back.

Take care,
Mike

There are hangers but awkward as can be. They dangle on a small post with a knob on the end. Made so they are undesireable to take home. And they are fat. I bring a few plastic ones, more convenient and can fit more in a closet.

I sometimes leave my clothes on the hangers from home and pack them that way. Then, when I arrive on the ship, I just have to move them from luggage to closet. I agree that there is usually an adequate supply of hangers in the closets. On my most recent trip on the Ryndam last week, my mother-in-law and I had oodles of storage, some that we didn't even use.

Default No need of hangers for dresses

well dear i do not think so that there is need of hangers. Plenty of hangers are already in the wardrobe and you can get more on request.

I like to hang my nicer things on plastic hangers at home. Then, I fold them over and put them in the suitcase. To unpack, I just lift them out and hang them in the closet. They seem to wrinkle less and it makes for minimal time/energy spent unpacking. I just reverse the process at the end.
