I booked a JS aft on the enchantment and saw with the pictures online that the couch is near the slider and the bed closer to the door. Hubby and I preferred the bed being near the slider ( like on traditional balcony rooms) where you can wake up to looking at the ocean. Is that a quick swap of furniture we could ask the room steward do upon boarding ( with a nice extra tip)?

I doubt they would completely flip the furniture for you.

Seriously?? I really doubt it.

I guess you could ask them to make up the sofa bed and sleep there.....

You've got to be kidding, right??

My suggestion is to change to a regular balcony cabin where the bed is near the slider.

Those couches are sofa beds. You ever try to move one? On a carpeted floor no less? They are HEAVY. (caps, bold, italics and underlined for emphasis)

No harm in asking. Please let us know if the furniture was rearranged.

Logistically I don't think they can. The desk/cabinet thing goes across from the couch for space purposes. Granted a JS has more space (so the bed would fit across from it), but without taking things out of the room and putting them back, moving a bed and sofa bed in those tight quarters would be near impossible.

I am not sure about enchantment since I have never sailed on her, but Serenade had the bed near the slider, but Grandeur had the bed near the door (both regular balcony rooms), so even a regular room might not have the bed where you want it.
