I realize that the Caribbean Princess just left on its maiden voyage today however I'm appealing to anyone who will be cruising on her soon. We reserved a BC Balcony cabin for three and I'm being told that the two twin beds are not convertible to a queen size bed. This makes no sense. I know that on some of the older ships this might have been the case--however this is a brand new ship and I can't imagine that all cabins don't convert beds. If anyone can check on this issue while they are on board I'd be very thankful.
In a quad they cannot move beds together for safety reasons. In a triple they can move the twins to the side and have the third on the other side. But the one up top will have to come down on your bed to get off.
We have a BC balcony for next week and on the cruise personalizer it said non-converting twins when we first booked. I called Princess and they said no problem. I then checked cruise personalizer again and it then stated queen.
Cabin number is A504--I called Princess today and the lady told me that all the cabins in BC show that the two lower beds don't convert---I just don't believe that--that's why I'm appealing to anyone who will be cruising on her soon---thanks so much for your help
We have a BB cabin with "non-converting" twin. We were told by Princess that they MUST write this because when there is an upper birth it is a safety issue to place the beds together. However, they also said that stewards are allowed to push the beds together on request as the discretion of the ship's 'hotel' manager. I am waiting until we board to see what happens.
We had the same problem. My TA was told by Princess that it is a computer glitch that shows the beds as non-convertible. I checked again after she made the phone call and the beds were listed as Queen.
