Default Cabins for large people

I have a friend that is 6'3", 250lbs. Do you think he would do okay in a regular cabin? I'm concerned that some ships have small showers and he would have to duck his head all the time.
Thanks for the help.

No problem, I'm 6', 240, never had a problem, the shower head slides up and down with more latitude then he will need.

Should be no problem at all for him. All showers are small, but they are designed to be user friendly.

I'm shorter, but also heavier than your friend and I had no problem. My travelling partner is about the same height as your friend and we found we had lots of room on Carnival Paradise. The shower was large and the shower head moves up and down, so my friend moved it all the way up for him, and I moved (not all the way) down for me. It was perfect! Your friend will be fine!

I have never had a problem with the rooms or showers being too small.

On the newer ships the shower head is adjustable up and down. On the older ships he may have to bend over to wash his hair. I'm 6'0" and found that to be the case.

My brother is 6'5" and didn't have much of an issue when he sailed with us on the Carnival Sensation. As mentioned the shower heads are mounted on a slide bar so they can be adjusted up and down to best fit your height. He only had to duck slightly, which is better then pretty much anywhere else he showers. The shower head was also a removable hand sprayer so if he wanted he could wash that way, I don't know I didn't ask how he showers.

But I know what your friend is worried about, I have been in old hotels where the shower head was mounted at about 5' which is great to wash out the belly button, not so great to wash the hair (I'm also 6').
