traveling on symphony in 3 weeks time for our first every cruise.

We are a family of 4 (2 kids) and are taking 3 suitcases.

Because we need to extra bed where in the room do you store cases?

Trying to judge which cases are the right ones to take.

Thanks all.

Normally they would go under the beds, the height is enough even for a hardcase suitcase.
And though I haven't experienced an extra bed in my cabins, I would guess it doesn't affect the space underneath them

You may have to lift the bed slightly to fit the luggage under the bed frame.

If you find you don't have enough room, the stateroom attendant can store if for you in a maintenance closet nearby. Give him a tip $$.

Mine goes under the bed and I use it to hold dirty clothes. If you have a hard case that doesn’t fit try sliding it under opened.

We stay in JS so if they don't fit under the bed, like on GR, we put them behind the chairs on the wall opposite the sofa. There's an overhang shelf so space behind the chairs as they don't go flush against the wall. DH and I usually have three suitcases and have no issues finding somewhere for them.

Very good idea! Never thought of that (though suitcase room has never been an issue for me). Thanks for sharing.

Do not be surprised if they can't do it. People have reported being told no.

Always store mine under the bed, then they are out of the way until I need them to repack

We have sometimes pulled out the sofa and stored our suitcases on end behind it, creating a kind of sofa table/shelf. Don't know if this would work with children using the sofa bed at night? May not be enough room to have the mattress extended out …

I have done in the closet and under the bed.

With 3, you might have to put one in a closet.

As has been mentioned, with a hard suitcase, you may have to lift the bed slightly to get it under. the frame at the edges is lower than the middle.
