Default Quad room

We are going to book an RCL cruise (Sovereign) and will be traveling with our 2 children 17and 8. Will a inside room be too small? Should we book 2 rooms? The price difference is enough that we are really thinking about staying in 1 room. Has anyone done this?

The Sovereign has small cabins. Her inside cabins are only 119 sq. ft. You would be very cramped with 4 in the cabin.

Last year we booked a quad for ourselves and two teenagers - it was small, but for the very little bit we were in the room we decided that it was a good idea. Our reasons for travelling as a family is to bond closer together, talk, visit...it would have defeated the purpose if we had seperate rooms. We used the money a second room would have cost for the dolphin swim in Cozumel, souvenirs and little extras. For us it was a good trade off, but that is an individual choice.

We have booked a quad many times in the last few years with our twin teens. And we were very cramped too, like the above post. But, it was ok and we got to spend family time together.

We peeked in one on the Monarch (sister ship). If you had a good sense of humor, it might be fun -- sorta like a Marx Brothers movie.

But as everyone has said -- teeny with just about 2 feet between the beds.

We are are four people. Our children are 14.5 and 11. We were originally booked on the NCL Sea. The rooms are very small, about 125 sq. ft. That just seemed redicously small to us. We upgraded to the top of the line regular room, it wasn't much more money (especially if you book early) and jumped to 180 square feet which was acceptable. This upgrade, was still less than 2 rooms. Since then we switched to Carnival, we are going in March. Two good things about their quads. Our outside cabin is 190 sq. ft, the biggest I've found. Also the 3rd and 4th beds are bunks so they don't eat up your floor space. The only problem I see is the bathroom issue, as there is not even an extra sink outside the toilet. There is a mirror and outlet though. So I am bringing a power strip and we can do makeup, blow dryers, electric shaving, curling irons, etc. in the room so we free up the bathroom. We'll have to spread the shower time. But, we usually have one shower on vacations, so I am sure we will manage.

Check the layout of the 4 beds on RCL. If you have a cot or pull out sofa, that is going to be really small.

Good luck
