Default King Size Beds?

I have never been on Carnival. I have been told their beds are great and all beds are King Size. Is this true? Or, are there beds the standard two twins pushed together?

Most of them are the standard twins pushed together but large enough.

Most of the time, when you first enter your stateroom, the twin beds will be pushed together. If you prefer them separated, just ask your Room Steward, he will be more than happy to re-configure your sleeping arrangements.

"This stateroom features two twin beds that convert to a king-size bed." That is what most of the cabin descriptions say.

Now is two twins = more to a queen or more = to a king? I am not sure.

Princess calls it a queen and it that size.

Well, a standard twin bed is 39" x 75", a Queen is 60" x 80" and a King is 76" x 80". Don't know if the twin beds on Carnival are standard size or not.

That would say that they are wider than a king, but not as long. Which sounds about right as my feet are off the mattress. 75" vs 80"

Whatever the "true" size of Carnival's beds, we've NEVER had a problem sleeping (love being rocked to sleep!!!) even when one of our kids moved in with us during the night.

thanks for all replies - that's what I thought. And, two twins are not a king, IMHO.

i'd say they are bigger too, because at home we have a king and on the cruise it felt bigger. My hubby isnt tall (5'8") so we didnt notice a length difference, it felt normal.

Now on comfy....well, its relative. I sleep on a good mattress with a 4 inch memory foam on top of that, so i have a cloud to sleep on.

I'll say that the conquest room we had last sept the mattress (esp on the door side because thats were people tend to put all the suitcases on while packing maybe) was awful. We had to have extra comforters put on it to get rid of the dips in the middle. However on the ecstasy our mattresses were MUCH better. Unsure why, just were


Still, they are really good for what you would expect of a cruise ship, esp since they are being slept on 365 days a year (or about lol)

Carnival does have some rooms that have a single king size bed in them. There are not a lot of them on each ship but they do have them. On the Destiny if you want a king bed they are only available in balcony rooms. I was told that none of the interior rooms or ocean view rooms had them.

I have read a lot of reviews of carnival bedding and those reviews were very good, so i would suggest you to buy one of the products.
