Sleeping arrangement on Sensation for 5-inside

Recommended Posts

Not sure about the bed arrangement, but dang, that sounds crowded and clustered. Good luck

2 twin beds that can be pushed together to make 1 queen.

2 twin beds that will come out of the ceiling.

Then 1 roll away that will be made up at night and put away in the morning.

Bathroom gonna be crowded at dinner time. As a suggestion, some of you can take your cloths + shower/dress in the spa locker room.

Awhile back someone posted a picture of their inside cabin sleeping 5 on this site. There is no way I could handle doing that, but you can definitely save money if you are comfortable with that arrangement.

These pictures of an inside on (I think) Fantasy have been around the internet for years:

the bunks come down from the walls, not the ceiling on fantasy class.  You will have more space to move around if you split the big bed into twins and align them below the bunks.  EM

Don't do it.  We did 4 in an outside cabin once and it was way too crowded.  Never again.

Do it! It will be fun like a slumber party (assuming you like everyone in your cabin).  We've had four in an interior cabin a couple of times for shorter cruises.  It's a little challenging, and requires everyone to be neat, organized shower scheduling, and use of public restrooms.  The cost difference between 2 cabins and 1 can be high. Take that savings and splurge on excursions on shore and rather than sleeping quarters.

 

Here's a post with a photo of an OV on the Elation, which is the same size cabin as the IS.

We did an inside on the Sensation years and years ago (she is that old!) with 5 but our 3 kids were young . That was the last time we did that . The cabin is large @ 185 sq ft but that roll away fills it up fast once unfolded and even awkward when stored .

Unless is two parents and 3 kids...don't do it. Spring for a larger cabin or separate cabins.  You don't have to pay good money for naval quarters.

We will be 2 parents and 3 kids, but not little kids in size, all about same size as us..it was just supposed to be a small squeeze in trip as we are hoping to do Alaska or Europe this summer..

 

We did the 5 of us in the Magic with the double, 2 bunks and couch and it didnt seem too bad, maybe that was because it was a couch and not a trundle?  I wonder what the size difference is..

 

The pic above does make it look very crammed.. 

 

Do they remove the trundle all together during the day?

We did five (2 adults, 3 kids) in a balcony cabin on Victory (this config is not available on many ships) a few years back - they folded the roll-away bed each night and moved it to the side, but did not remove it. 

 

On a similar note, on other cruises, we have NEVER had the "couch" bed returned to a couch during the day, which we sometimes wish they would.  Has anyone had (or requested) their couch-bed returned to a couch daily?

We did a family cruise a couple of years back and had 3 ocean view cabins booked this way, along with another ocean view for 4.  we knew it would be tight, but had a lot of little children and it was the best configuration for us.  Two weeks before cruising we got an offer to upgrade each cabin to a grand suite for $300.  Sweet!!  We grabbed it so we have no experience with what would have been.

We did 5 adults in a balcony once.  1 king (queen?) bed, 1 upper pullman, 1 sofa, and 1 trundle.  CROWDED.

Thanks all, could someone tell me the difference between cat OV and 6A on the Sensation (for 5 people), the price is a few bucks difference.

 

Also, does the trundle fit like a regular single bed?
