Default 2 uppers?

Just booked today. When I went online to look at our cabin location the stateroom symbols shows 2 dots and on the legend that means 2 uppers. Our PVP knew the room was for my husband, myself and our daughter. What exactly would 2 uppers be? Bunks and a bed that comes out of the wall?? I sure hope not! Has anyone ever had a cabin like this. Ours is U211 on the Paradise.

Default i think you have.....

I think what you will have is two twin beds on the floor that can be pushed together for you and your husband and the two uppers will be able to fold down from the wall. I had this once. It is not bad. If this is what you have, you can put the beds together and have just one folded down from the wall. It will be like a bunk bed, just connected to the wall on one side. don't worry it is comfortable and safe. My boyfriend weighed about 210 pounds and he ended up sleeping up there one night when we took his daughter and friend with us.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Okay, that never occured to me. That's probably what it is. Could you read the panic in my post? I saw "two uppers" and right away I had a horrible vision of trying to hoist my body onto an upper bunk!! Thanks!

Just like funygirl said they are not bunk beds. They are two regular twin beds or one king size bed and 2 upper beds that can be folded down when they are in use and folded back up when they are not being used. So you won't even notice them. It is not what you are thinking about bunk beds.

Yes, that's it. We had that once and got our cabin steward to put the extra bunk down. We used it for storage.

Default here are some suggestions

If you and your husband are planning on pushing the two twins together, leave one against the wall and push the other next to it (instead of putting them together in the middle of the room) and pull down the bed directly above. If you have no need for the second upper bed, you can leave it closed in the wall. This way the room might seem (a little) more spacious.

Or, as Melody said, you could pull it down and use it for storage. When both bunks are pulled down it can make for a tight squeeze in the cabin. Or in my case, that could have been because 3 of the 4 travelers were girls and two of them were teenagers and we had all of our stuff sprawled all OVER the place!

If you are pushing the beds together, you may consider bungee cords or an extra belt to keep the beds together.

But, in any case, you won't spending too much time in the cabin anyway. Have a GRRREEEEEAAAT cruise!

Thats a good idea for using an upper for storage.
