Hi all! I am a first time cruiser - will be going on the Glory 11/8 with friends. We have booked a cabin in category 4a. I was wondering if anyone knew what the bed configuration might be - there are 3 of us in the room.
You should not accept a rollaway as a third bed. They have cabins that have a third bunk and that is the only way I would take a cabin. It pays to look at your cabin before in the brochure and make sure it is built to accomodate a third or fourth person. I had an agency book us into a triple once and after getting the cabin # I noticed it was a cabin for two with no bunks. When I called to tell them this fact they told me that they would just have a rollaway put in. This was totally unacceptable as you know that basically just gives you one huge bed and no room to wealk around. Now as much as I love my sister-in-law, my wife and I are not about to basically share out bed with her so we demanded they change it. They refused stating that all triples in that cat were sold out. After many threats and telling them to cancel not only our 'triple' cabin but the other two cabins we had booked for our other family members we somehow got upgraded to a balcony at no charge. Do not accept a rollaway, that is not a third bed!
Thanks, Jim - I don't have my cabin number yet, my cruise paperwork should be coming soon since I am going on the 11/8 Glory. I will definitely check this out. I thought the same thing about a rollaway bed, but since this is my first time, I didn't know if this was the norm. Thanks again for your advice.
Just returned from Carnival Legend. We had 3 in a room, the 2 twin beds combined to a King size for my husband and I, and my son had a couch that folded out to a comfortable single bed. By the way, I've been on 2 Carnival ships, and I thought their beds were SO comfortable! Have a great 1st cruise - it won't be your last!
I am booked on the Glory Oct. 4 - three in a room. They told me that rollaway beds are no longer allowed per Maritime Law - BUT all the older ships are grandfathered in. So they can continue to use rollaways but all new ships cannot.
I was told I'd have a room with 2 beds and a bunk or hopefully be upgraded as I booked a category 4A Guarantee. Email me after October 11th and I'll let you know how the room was.
