Default Will twin air mattress fit in balcony room?

I just found out that our cabin does not have a sofa bed but only a single pullman bed - thanks American Express Travel Agent. My daughter is 5yrs old and I am not keen on the idea of her sleeping that high up, especially on a ship.

Is there room for an air mattress on the floor right by the sofa?

I am going to look into switching rooms but since we are going Easter Break week, I would have to imagine I will be out of luck.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure there will be enough room, but does the cabin have a sofa? May-be just setting up the sofa for your 5 year old will work out nicely. My kids have slept on the uppers and with the gate and ladder, there has never been a problem, she actually may enjoy it.

Hi travelnurse74,

Welcome to Cruisemates!

I agree with Donna! The upper bunk will have rails to keep your sweetie from falling out and I think she'll love sleeping up there !

Unless she's one of those children who move all over the bed (especially the end!) she should be fine.

Have a wonderful cruise!

I think you'll find the pullman will work just fine. You don't mention what ship or cabin category you've booked, but unless you booked a suite, you won't have any floorspace for an air mattress.

The pullman beds are nice and secure with railings. The one hazard is that it's right above your bed, so watch your head when you get up .

If you're concerned this still won't work, ask your TA to check availability for swithching to a cabin with a sofa bed. Good luck and have a great cruise.

Thanks all. I looked up some pics on the Internet and the pullman does look good. Initially I was thinking it wasn't safe but it is identical to a top bunk. My daughter will like it for sure. I think I rather have the pullman then the couch anyway so we still have more room to roam around once she is asleep.

By the way, we are on Navigator deluxe balcony.
