My wife and I have been on 3 RCL cruises. We are looking to go on another cruise with my 5 year old. We just went to an all inclusive in Mexico that had a pull out couch for sleeping that worked out great. We would like to be in a cabin with some type of pull-out for sleeping. I know Disney has them. The RCL cabins we had were very small, but we have not been on some of the bigger ships. What other lines offer some type of pull out? We are looking at Carnival and RCL, maybe Disney. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We are looking at going in the Fall. Thanks.
You can get cabins that sleep 3 or 4. I cruised on Carnival Inspiration last year with my kids and we had four in the room. It was bunkbeds. We also cruised on RCI with three of us this past spring. On of the beds came down from the wall.

Sovereign of the Seas 4/03
I have cruised all the major family friendly cruise lines and cabin configurations vary greatly. You really have to inquire directly w/the line. Most do have a pull out couch for sleeping for three and an upper berth/bunk bed for four people.
I just got back from a Disney Cruise with my almost 5 year old who had a blast! Really great family experience for pre-schoolers and grade school kids. Free character b'fasts, short lines for pix w/characters, fireworks at night, great shows in the evening for kids, and fun youth program.

palmtreelover1 - just go to RCCL's web site and click on the deck plans for the Freedom of the Seas. We are booked in a balcony cabin and we have a sofa bed, there are also balcony cabins with pullman style beds.
Weve been on RCLs Enchantment, Navigator, Mariner and Brilliance. Each time we had a balcony cabin with a pull out couch. On Brilliance, we also had a pullman bed. On the first three, to save space we brought an inflatable sleeping bag for our son to use, then just stood it up against the wall during the day (if you use the sofa bed, they set it up and break it down each day-we used it to store stuff). On Brilliance, our son used the pullman bed and loved it (it had a rail that popped up so he couldnt fall out). He was almost 4 at the time. It freed up space for the portable crib that our baby girl slept in.
