Has anyone had the chance to sleep on one of these? We are thinking about booking a 1A on the Valor, and it has a twin bed with a single sofa bed. How comfortable/uncomfortable are they for someone in their mid 40's?

Thanks for any info.

According to Cruise Stateroom it says a 1A has an upper and lower and no sofa bed?

Small Interior
Upper and lower bed, television, private bath with shower, safe, mini bar, phone, television, sitting area, hair dryer.

Some of the newer ships have some 1A's with a twin bed and a sofa bed as opposed to an upper/lower. I am looking @ the Valor on the main deck.

Do they have one of those cheap foam mattresses on them?

we have a sofa bed in our room for sept on Destiny. Called carnival and she said it's basically a bed up against the wall; made for sitting during the day.

My question now is also, is it a mattress and can you request a duvet and have them keep it a bed all week?

So far i've honestly only read good things about the sofa beds on carnival.

So, is it just a sofa that you sleep on top of, or is it a sofa that unfolds into a twin bed with sheets/covers/pillow? I would love to see a photo if anyone has one.

Thanks.

I have slept on a pull out sofa bed on the Valor. I personally thought it was great. Good size. Nice and comfy. Felt just like the king bed that was also in the cabin. I woulndt mind having to sleep on one again. I have pics as well if u need some.

My daughters have slept on them. They were OK with it. The sofa isn't the pull-out type, at least not the ones we have used. They are just the couch in the room that they remove the back cushion off and put a sheet on. Make sure you ask for extra blankets! I don't think they were very long either. A tall person may be a little more uncomfortable.

I'm six feet tall and slept on one on the Victory. I had no issues at all and it was quite comfy. I couldn't tell the difference between it and the regular bed.

Thanks for all the replies. The main thing I wanted to find out was if it actually opened up into a bed like the sleeper sofa's do, or do you simply lie on the sofa and call it a bed? From the replies, it appears that it does not open into a bed. Thanks.
