Default Why no King size beds?

Why don't any of Carnivals rooms have King or Queen size beds? I noticed that many other lines do. I booked a suite and as far as I know they all have 2 twin beds, but in all the pictures they are pushed together. Why not just put king sized beds in half the rooms with suites. My guess is most people getting a suite are married, or at least half. I can't understand why they wouldn't have at least a few rooms with King sized beds. Does this bother anyone else? I feel like I'm going to end up sleeping in a crack between the beds.

Trust me you won't even notice the crack. Plus the beds are so comfy.

lauera,
See what happens when you post the same exact question of the "other" board, you said it yourself, you wanted an answer not an argument.
Serves ya right for crossing to the "dark" side , I did warn you!

You post here, you get answers in a respectable manner , you post "there" , well, you can see for yourself now ...........

Hey Captain, the pull to the dark side was just too strong. I think I learned my lesson though. Although the one advantage of the "other" board is that more people seem to use it.

By placing a King Size bed in a room, the cruiseline limits it's options on the layout of the room. There's no other reason but that.

You are so right Cap. Every now and then I go over to the dark side to look for info but there is soooo much crap that I just give up trying to getting some info or light hearted entertainment. Here you get 5, 10 maybe 15 posts but everyone of them is of merit or at least very entertaining. I ALWAYS end up coming back here.

Three Cheers for Cruisemates.

I usually cruise solo and like to have the beds separate. I use one bed to lay out my clothes for the next day or to dump my goodies when I come back from port. I sleep in the other bed. I like it like that. A king sized bed is soooooooooooooo big that it is hard to move around it and heavens forbid you need something from the far side of the bed, you have to crawl all the way over just to retrieve your ????. Hahahahaha

There are some ships with a FEW queen size beds. They are marked with an X on the deck plans. We've stayed in cabins with the queen beds and honestly the twins made into kings are just as comfy.

my wife and I never noticed the "crack" with the beds pushed together, plus Carnival beds are the most comfortable beds to sleep in other then your own in my opinon.

You guys are so right - you never notice the beds are even twin beds when pushed together and it is soooooooooooooo comfortable! I swear each time I go, I say I'm coming home to buy a set for myself, but never do. One day........

Default What crack? Oh the bed crack.

Speaking of "cracks" Because I noticed that the beds were so comfy I lifted the comforteres to notice that they lay a full mattress over the two twin beds that are slid together... ah the trick and discovery as to why I never fell through the crack. They are nice beds.... you would not need a king bed and there is not enough room.

Beenie and EMG (as well as the others) made good points here. I have sailed Carnival 10 times and love their beds. When they are pushed together, I never feel like I am in a crack and the beds are hooked together to stay together. My bed at home is a queen size and when the two Carnival beds are pushed together it is larger than my queen. It is not a California King, but definately larger than a standard queen bed.
