Default 4 people in an inside cabin?

After 4 months I have finally decided to take my family of 14 on the CP in August, 2005. Has anyone put 4 in one inside stateroom? How tight was it and where are the pullman beds located?

if you are talking about 4 adults or 2 adults with teenage kids it will be very cramped, its not too bad with 2 adults with little kids, the bathroom is only large enough for one person at a time,storage and floor space are at a premium

My wife and I just had an inside quad.. The bunks are recessed into the ceiling and are lowered at night. There's not a lot of head room up there, as they are made for children mostly, but will accomodate an average adult comfortably.. An inside cabin is the same size as a OV and only slightly smaller than a balcony. Four people will be crowded in any cabin. However, don't be to concerned, as you spend very little time in the room anyway. We always book insides for that reason. We just got upgraded to a Caribe balcony on the C.P. and we used it less than 1 hour the whole cruise. Hope this helps... Bombero

I think the statement "you spend very little time in the cabin" is not necessarily true for all people. A better way to look at it is this: When you go on vacation in a hotel, how much time do you spend in your room? Chances are, that will be the amount of time you spend in your cabin. With a family of four with small children, it can take quite a while to get people ready to go for the day. When you come back before dinner, time in the cabin is also extended as everyone showers, etc. Only you can decide whether the cabin will be large enough for the amount of time you anticipate you are going to spend there.

But, I cannot imagine 4 adults sharing a small cabin and having to climb over each other when say getting ready for dinner.

We travelled many years with four people in a cabin when our sons
cruised with us. The Princess inside cabins are very spacious
compared to the inside cabins on the old RCCL ships like
Sun Viking, Song of Norway, Nordic Prince, and Song of America.
Of course on those ships, if one person wanted to move at least
two people had to go stand in the hall.

It is like someone else said, it all depends how much time
you send in the cabin. The biggest issue is four people
using one tiny bathroom, particularly on formal nights.
We used to schedule showers for everyone so all would
be ready by dinner time.
