What is a "trundle bed"?

Recommended Posts

Just doing some mock bookings for some 5 day cruises for 3 of us (2 adults and DD5). I requested balcony room and it didn't describe the third bed (e.g. Pull down berth). At the next page there was an advisory warning that there was a occupancy restriction and addition of passengers would result in fare change etc. The next statement said "room has trundle bed" and gave measurements. Anyone experience this before?

Thanks!

Must be a older ships. The older ships have both rollaways and trundle beds, and you could get either one if so marked. The trundle beds are not quite as long as a regular bed and low to the ground and can actually fit under a twin to store them.

A trundle bed can be stored under the regular bed. It is shorter than a regular bed. It has no legs, think more along the lines of a pallet. It's best for anyone under 4foot6. DD found it very comforatble but found it to be a bit short as she was just under 5feet when she used one.

It is 29 inches wide. there were 4 of us ladies booked in a regular balcony. Got the upsell call for a suite... was told it would have a convertible sectional sofa. these only come in the grand suite. I didnt know that the grand suite was the suite that was offered to my daughter. I thought it was the ocean suite. Called, got the cabin. Got home, saw it had a trundle bed. My daughter said that was not what we were offered. It had a trundle. None of us ladies could do a trundle. I called back to see if they would give us the suite that was originally offered with the sectional sofa.... Supposedly, it was a misunderstanding. We liked the idea of having more space... but... the trundle would not work. We were able to get back to our balcony on the lido. It was booked, but after a few minutes, they were able to get it back for us... those in our balcony that ended up in the suite probably got a free upgrade or something.. lucky them...

If your daughter is 5, she will probably love it. My daughter was a teenager when she slept in our room on one. It worked just fine! She thought is was really comfortable.

Don't know anything about them except that they sure hurt when you stub your toe on it.
