I read somewher that you have to store your suitcase under your bed. Is that correct?
does anyone know how many inches from the floor to the bottom of the bed? I was going to take a hard suitcase, and not one of the collapsable ones. would it fit?
I've taken a cruise on RCCL (Brillance was my ship) and I stored my suitcase and other luggage in my closet and under the bed. The space under the bed is probably about 1-1 1/2 feet tall. It's quite roomy!!
If you are checking the suitcase, it can be a large one, it doesn't have to be stored under the bed. That is a good place to keep it if it will fit, so you have more room in your cabin to move around. They have limitations on the size of the carry ons, they have to fit through the X-ray machine just like at the airport. Similiar to the requirements for carry on luggage for airplanes. My carry on I took on 2 RC cruises was a little larger than the specified size and I had no problems. The actual size is probably listed on their website somewhere. Hope this helps out!
Enjoy your cruise!

We take large hard side luggage when we cruise and it slides ub\der the bed fine in the open position....definitely won't fit when it's closed..........You can ask your room attendant to stow it for you and bring it back the last day.........
That's really a great suggestion, tokathy! I never would have thought of putting an open suitcase uncer the bed. I've brought the same old-same old-suitcase for so many years that I pretty much know where it fits. I'll keep your idea in mind in case I ever spring for the newer, hard-sided luggage! Great tip.
you don't HAVE to store your cases under the bed, it's just more convenient to do so as it saves space, once the closet is filled with clothes there isn't much room and you don't want to be tripping over suitcases in the cabin, the cabin steward won't be crazy about that either. I like tokathy's suggestion, I never would have thought of opening it to fit it under the bed, excellent suggestion.
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
