I'm not absolutely sure of this, however I've been told that they are going to the same beds that are used on the HAL ships. If this is true, they are absolutely GREAT! They are called "Eurotop" mattresses, Sealy I think, and really are comfy. In fact, you'll probably be looking for one for "home use" when you return. I'm told that they are on all the newest Carnival ships now, and will be installed on all Carnival ships by the end of 2006. I hope this is correct, as IMO the beds were the best thing about our HAL cruise last year.
See you aboard,
I fell in love with the bed myself. The bedding was so comfy, it really made my stay a lot nicer. I actually just got a brochure from a friend of mine on how to buy the stuff. I may have to think about it, it is wonderful! I usually get very warm with down, but this kept me very comfortable!
Enjoy your cruise!
A bad cruise is still better than a good week at work!!!
Fascination, My Birthday Cruise!
10-02-05 Valor My favorite yet!
10-23-04 Triumph (Honeymoon of my dreams)
Yes the new Comfort Bedding system is on the Triumph. We sailed on the Triumph Jan 21 and they new beds are great! I checked Carnival's website to see what the cost is to purchase the sheets and comforter. They are definately an improvement!!
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
The mattresses are thicker than other cruise ship mattresses and are rather firm....the sheets are very fine quality and not scratch at all and the duvet is just heavenly! Got off the Liberty on Sunday and am missing the sheets and duvet, I like my mattress at home better though.
Edited to add - this is the first cruise that I have been on where the beds that have been pushed together to make a queen/king did NOT push apart! It was wonderful!
Carnival Breeze with Ray Band Aerogirl 5/4/14!
Does anyone know if the beds are on the Glory yet? We sail in April - and have never had a bed that was bad yet on Carnival - most likely because we are exhausted by the time we hit the sack! .. I wish they would have fans on the ship tho - especially in summer cruises - as I had a hot room once and it was miserable. So, I am sticking to winter/spring cruising.
how much can we attributed to the bedding system and how much is really the fact that we are on the water..I wonder if a portion of our comfort is all in our minds due the fact that we are on vacation in a place that we want to be ?
has anyone actually purchased a bedding system since their cruise and had the same satisfaction sleeping in your own bedroom without the benefit of the motion of the ocean
i think if you purchase a bed system they should throw in a cd with the sounds at night of a carnival cruise
Oh my gosh -- what an awesome suggestion! And...get a box on the side of the bed to turn on and off to put WAVE motion effect in place! And don't forget a little clip on the CD for the night life on Lido ---- Hot Hot Hot Calypso! Makes me want to hop on board now!
and then in the morning when you go to your kitchen for breakfast, when you come back to your bedroom, your bed is made and your room is cleaned..yea that's the ticket...I think we are on to something about cruiser satisfaction regarding these comfort beds
Venice...I see you are from New Orleans! I was born and raised in Gretna (Timberlane). How did you make out during the hurricane. They should start sailing out of N.O. with the larger ships in October I believe. Its nice because it is closer (2 hours for me now)...but I enjoy going out of Galveston (get to blue water faster). I was getting tired of seeing muddy water of the Mississippi for the trip down to open water.
thanks for asking, I actually live in La Place..some roof and siding damage and alittle water in my front window which ruined my rug and 5 shingles off my house..biggest loss was my job with the n.o. school system, but all in all I'm great
When you ladys get this bed program together with Carnival that includes the sea motion, auto made beds, and cruise sounds I will order your first truck load. I am leaving on the Pride next sunday and am hoping that they have the Comfort Bed System. Gosh, I cant wait. 8)
18 cruises and counting!!!!!!
Next cruise-Jan.1-9, 2011 Carnival Freedom
Hello Venice. Trust me. It's the bed!!!! Yes, we do sleep a lot better on any and all cruises, however, you'll agree as soon as you experience the new beds. They are absolutely great.
Now, about that CD. Why would you want a cd of nice water sounds, punctuated by blairing announcements about the BINGO jackpot rolling over again, and somebody has GOT to win it soon?
I was on the Conquest last November and slept on the bed and loved it..I was on the HAL Zuiderdam a year ago November 2 months after my back operation (spinal fusion) and the combination of the new bedding and the hydro therapy pool enabled me to get the first good night sleep in over 2 years prior to the operation and at the beginning of the cruise I had my back brace and cane and at the end of the cruise I was dancing and did not need the cane
not even my poor GF complained that I slept like a baby for 7 straight nights
I'm actually considering purchasing the Carnival product and seeing if my doctor will write a prescription for me to get it as a medical deduction
