  1. Hi! Yes, I believe two normal sized young adults can sleep on here relatively comfortably. At least for us, they made up the bed to sleep horizontal, not vertical, and it’s easily a Queen size that way. I don’t have a great picture, but I will try to attach (pardon family members!). An egg crate would definitely help the mattress, it is a little hard.
  2. Thank you, everyone, for helping out a newbie!
  3. Hello cruisers! We will be on MSC Meraviglia with Fantasia experience this winter. Forgive me for my naivete, but we've only taken one cruise before with NCL, which has freestyle dining, so I'm unfamiliar with how a cruise with dining "seating" works. If we miss our assigned dining time, are we out of luck except for the buffet? If we book a specialty restaurant, do we have to "cancel" our MDR dining time? What if only a few of us show up for our reserved time (i.e. kids decide to go to buffet or order room service) -- is that OK? And we are traveling with two other families who may or may not have the same dining times/locations (one has Bella, so can't even request). Any chance we can mix and match as long as the same number of people show up that is assigned to that particular time/location? Thank you for helping explain this to the novices! Heather
  4. Hi Mercury, We did have this room for our cruise and it worked out great - but we did NOT have a way to make two beds. The main bottom cushion of the couch slides out, then the top two slim cushions are put in place in the back to make one flat bed. My kids slept horizontal, but they WERE next to each other. It was larger than a typical sofa bed, though. The room steward also had separate linens for them, so it felt like two beds a little more. There wasn’t really room for an extra bed like an air bed, although I suppose it could be an option if you don’t slide out the bottom. It ended up working fine for us. Hope that helps!
  5. Thank you, everyone! Good thoughts and helpful information. Based on some online research, I don't think a rollaway is an option for this ship.
  6. We are a family of four lucky enough to get a Haven Aft Penthouse suite for an upcoming cruise. Similar to other families who have posted, we have two opposite sex teenagers who aren't thrilled about sharing a bed in the living room. I've read about potentially bringing an air mattress, but in looking at videos/pictures from Breakaway/Getaway (also below, if I posted a picture right!), it seems that the couch/bed has two large, wide "bolsters/pillows" that make up the back, that I'm assuming (?) are what help form the larger mattress when it's turned into a queen. From those who have been in this type of room, would it be feasible to just take those two "bolsters" and put them on the floor to make a separate, smaller bed, next to the single bottom couch? Are they attached together? Any way to keep them together so they don't split in two if someone is sleeping on them? They don't mind sleeping "near" each other, just preferably where they can't touch by accident (the horrors!). Anyone with personal experience with this setup would be helpful. Thank you!
