Never really understood why anyone would want to decorate the door. Really don't like anything that draws attention to myself nor could possibly identify who is staying it the cabin. Never seen it done in hotels so why do it on cruise ship ?
Well I may not stay in alot of hotels, but I do own a 5th wheel and go to RV parks when I am not cruising and alot of campers also decorate their campsites. Flags with the last name are really popular. And you should see Disney Fort Wilderness Resort during the holidays! The resort and their guests will put your neighborhood housing developement to shame.
Decorating be it your home, dorm, rv, or hotel door is just fun and makes people smile, the proof is in all those decorating shows. Martha Stewart can certainly show you how to do some crafty holiday and celebration stuff.
Besides, why would anyone not try to make others feel good? People like to share their celebrations. Look at Facebook it's a very popular social sharing site. Heck look at how many people post celebrations here on this forum or on the Meet N Mingle thread. What's the difference if it's a posting online, or a balloon tied to a mailbox, a flag stuck in ground or a door sign?
I personally enjoy seeing them or and if you don't ...avoid DCL. They not only have door signs they decorate their whole entire doors and fellow passengers also do a gift exchange called a 'Fish Extender'. ...Guilty as charged, participated in my first ever Fish Extender last year and it was alot of fun! Almost didn't being that it was just hubby and I, but the folks on my sailing insisted especially since it was my 40th birthday.
Personally and this is just my opinion....I actually will go out of my way when I see a door sign just to see what it says. RCCL's room decoration package actually includes a door sign.
I know because I just ordered one for someone that recently got married and sailed on Liberty of the Seas. I love the ones that are celebrating birthdays, honeymoons or anniversaries, they make me smile.....life is way too short as it is...celebrate and be proud of your accomplishments.
