Best set up for 5 ppl in Epic Haven Suite


Recommended Posts

Looking for advice if you have sailed in a 2BR Epic Haven suite...


We are a family of 5, and I'm trying to figure out if it would be better to put 3 in the second bedroom (1 in pullman + 2 in fold-out bed) or put two in the second bedroom and one on the living room sofa. The plus of putting 3 in the 2nd bedroom is that if someone wakes up early, they can go into the living room while others sleep in the bedrooms. However, I can see from the pictures that the 2nd bedroom is very tiny.


We are a family of 2 adults and 3 boys (ages 17, 15, 13), so two of the boys are full grown. While I like the idea of spreading out and using the living room, it limits the ability of those who wake up early to have anywhere to go without disturbing others.


Suggestions from those who have done this before?


We will be in 17001, so I understand we'll have a little bit more space than the typical 2 BR.

We've sailed in the 2 bdrm Haven suite on several ships, but not the Epic. However on the other ships the living room couch became a small single bed i.e. narrower than a standard twin. We also have teen boys and it wasn't comfortable for them. It might work for a young teen. Perhaps this would be different on the Epic (?); hopefully someone can confirm because there is sometimes a difference among the ships. The second bedroom is small, but could work for three teens.


Also we like having the living room and dining area available for early risers, like me, who like to make a latte and sit on the balcony:).

We had three teenagers in the second bedroom when we sailed on the Epic. The second bedroom may be small but I think the beds are more comfortable than the couch. My teenagers enjoy sleeping in on sea days and it is easier if they are not in the living room. I prefer the living room to remain a living room. You can always switch up the sleeping arrangements part way through the cruise though.
