Default 4 people in a room

Hi Everyone,
I just booked a room for a cruise next March (on the Fantasy) for our family of four. We decided to book an oceanview room and felt better with an assigned cabin. Because of price we are on the Riviera deck in category 6A. When I looked at the map for the room they had given us, it only has one upper berth. What are we going to do with our other daughter? Do they have a pull out couch or do they bring in a rollaway bed? Are we going to have trouble getting around the room?

I hope I didn't make a mistake with the room and category we booked.

Also, how many nights are formal dining nights?

Thanks,
marci

I think if a room is set up for more than 2 it will be a quad but call carnival to double check. We have cruised once where we need a roll away for a 5th person in a room but normally I think there is 2 beds from the ceiling...
I think the 4 and 5 night cruises have 1 formal night...
Good luck!

Without knowing the cabin # it's hard to help but if there is only 1 dot then you only have 1 upper berth. Of course 2 dots would indicate 2 berths. I would double check with your TA and make sure they know it's for 4 people. There are many on the Riviera deck in the category you choose with 2 berths. Years ago we had rollaways and I would not recommend them. Once they brought a bed that just stayed on the ground the whole cruise, like a trundle bed. We didn't know better then, totally unacceptable now.

I agree with CA Cruiser, the rollaways are a pain.. Call to double check..

We were on the Pride, and they have an upper berth that comes out of the ceiling, and a bed below it that appeared to be a couch the rest of the time. The cushions from the back were stored under our queen bed.

We slept 3 in a Cat6A on Fantasy. The problem will be everyone wanting in the bathroom to dress for dinner. I surrendered the bathroom to the girls and carried my clths and shaving gear to the spa. After working out and sitting in the steam room/sauna, I just dressed in the spa locker room. Worked GREAT!

CA Cruiser is right...you need a room with two dots...meaning two upper berths (pull down beds).

We were on the Ecstasy which is the same class and layout as the Fantasy. We had a 6A cabin on the Riviera deck with one upper berth because there were only 3 of us. Call Carnival or your TA and make sure you have a cabin with 4 beds

after recently cruised with a party of three to a cabin with no kids and two lowers and two uppers, I strongly suggest seeing if you can upgrade to a cabin with these features....the family across from us had an interior and it seemed to work well and I believe their two children were 10 and under.

Default 4people in a room

We sailed with 4 people in CAT6a Riviera Deck on Ecstasy. My teen daughters slept on the pull down bed and the roll away trundle while my husband and I took the king sized bed. The girls traded beds nightly to be "fair". It was tight but we were organized with our time and one shower while getting dressed. To me, it was just like being in an old New York hotel room where you have to close one door to open another. Once my husband got "trapped" behind the closet door AND the bathroom door! He had stepped aside to let my daughter in the closet...she left the door open while someone went into the bathroom and left that door ajar trapping my husband between the two doors and the stateroom door! Just another part of the laughs and fun!
