Default Sofa Sleeper Question

I have booked my family on the November 22 sailing of the Oosterdam to the Mexican Riviera. We will have four in our cabin (large outside, cat. D #1090), and I am wondering about the sleeping arrangements. My two boys are ages 5 and 3 and I would love to have them sleep together on the sofa sleeper! Does anyone know how big that bed folds out to? I really don't want one of them to sleep in the bunk unless absolutely necessary! Any help would be appreciated!

The sofa beds do not fold out like a regular sofa bed. The cabin steward somehow "flips" it and it can only accomodate 1 person. The only cabins/suites where the sofa bed pulls out is in the Deluxe Verandah Suites SA/SB/SC. Even in the SS/SY Suites the sofa beds does not fold out.

From looking at the deck plans, one of the children will have to sleep on the top bunk as the sofa bed only sleeps one person/child.

While I don't have experience with this particular ship, we did cruise with our 3 sons when they were young twice on Carnival and the 5 year old loved the bunk bed. It had a rail and ladder. I think they will sleep much better separated in their own beds than in one twin size sofa bed. Have a great cruise and make wonderful family memories. They grow up too fast! Our darling grandson just turned 5!

Thanks, I will separate them and let the 5 year old sleep on the bunk!

I was on the Oosterdam in May and there were 3 of us in the cabin, we had a deluxe suite. Our sofa was a queen sleeper and was large enough for an adult with room to spare.

I think this one you can play by ear. Our cat K cabin on Statendam had a full size pullout sleeper that would easily accommodate a 5 and 3 year old. Once you get in the cabin you can determine if the sofa sleeper will be large enough to accommodate the two of them.

Different ships and different classes of cabins may have different sizes of sofa sleepers.

If not then the older one can sleep in the pull down.

Take care,
Mike

The sofa beds are for one person, but if you kids are small, two may fit. Or, you can put the three-year-old in the regular bed with you if you don't want either one of your boys using the overhead bunk.
