Default Cabin setup?

How do they fit four people in a cabin? My guess is two sets of bunk beds... anyone know? Anyone have advice on this (i.e. the sanity of it)? BTW - two adults & 2 teenagers.

Usually a "regular" bed (two pushed together or apart) and a fold-out couch. I've seen rollaways, too, as sort of Murphy beds that fold down from the bulkhead.

As to sanity, mine certainly would be tested ... teens are not always totally tidy, four people would have to use the same bathroom, etc.

I would suggest shifts! Mom and Dad have proprietorship of the room for, say, 14 hours and teenagers for 10 hours. Or you might overlap the schedule a bit and say it is communal property between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. but at 7:01 the teenagers are out until Mom and Dad have slept in, showered, dressed and departed.

The bedding is set up as twins that CAn be converted to a double but when both fold down bunks are used it makes it very hard to move around. What will probably be the best set up is a lower twin and right above it a berth that fold out of the wall or drops from the ceiling on some ships. It will be a bit crowded but doable if you really like each other. <G>

Hi Scott.
You may want to go to http://www.mytravelco.com/ and get into the "cruise" section and then the 360 tour. I think after you view what your cabin will look like, it will give you a much better idea as to what to expect.

The only major problem we've had when sharing a cabin with 4 people is bathroom time, possibly make a schedule that will work for everyone, have fun!
