We booked a balcony on Princess with a pullman bed for my daughter. Princess advised us that bed configurations with a pullman bed must be shown as twin beds. I was advised that once on board we could ask the room attendant to put the beds together.
We had previously cruised RCI with a pullman and had the beds configured together right from the start. I assume that this is a Princess policy.
What are the chances that Princess will not allow us to change the beds once we are on board? My husband and I certainly don't want to be sleeping in twin beds during the cruise but my daughter loved the 'bed in the ceiling'.
Should I switch to a cabin with a sofa bed or will they change the beds as requested?
Any experience with this?
Many have reported luck with getting the room steward to change the two bottom twins into a queen. But it does often limit access from the bed above which would mean that the upper bunk sleeper might have to step on you to get out of bed.
If you are interested in a mini suite, the set up for the 3rd (and 4th person) is shown in this picture and totally different then a balcony cabin. In a mini, the beds are on the other side of the room, so the sofa bed, or a pull down in a quad mini, are a perfect set up IMHO for those looking to make sure they have a queen configuration for the parents.
