Ours is awful, and I rarely feel that way.

It feels fine going to bed, but it's a rough wake up

If you just happen to have a measuring tape, and have the time, would you measure the clearance under the bed? DD’s friend has a duffel with a hard frame that measures 14”. 

I asked on the RCI board, but you’re actually in the right place to check. 

If  you can’t measure it,  that’s fine. Don’t want to interfere with your lovely cruise.

We did it in St. Maarten but I believe they offer it at other ports as well.  It really is a lot of fun.

 

Stars and Stripes and true North  4 are actual retired Anericas Cup vessels in St. Maarten

Those names sound familiar.  Believe there was also a retired vessel from New Zealand when we did it.

Another trick when our cases don't fit under the bed.  Sometimes it's the railing along the bottom that restricts it.  We just lift the corner of the bed up a bit, then slip the case under it.  Works 99% of the time.  Otherwise...those cases get to spend the cruise in the corner...bad cases...bad girls!

I don’t think a 14 inch anything will fit under the bed.  When I take our regular suitcases, they fit if they are put under bed in open position and not closed (hard sided Briggs and Reilly my wife has).  My soft sided will fit closed.  Guessing no more than 7 or 8 inches.

Were you still logged into VOOM?

 

Biker, are you saying WiFi on Coco Cay works without the VOOM package?  If so, I may change my VOOM plans for April. 

 

I didn't try that.  I'll look into it if I can on Friday

I was on CocoCay in September. I did not purchase any of the connectivity packages. I was able to text, snapchat, Instagram, check e-mail and use the Internet on my iPhone while there. All of this over WiFi.

My big blue one slides under with very little clearance.  I can measure it when I get home.

Excellent tip and can vouch that it works.

Our  3 Travelpro maxlite 5, 26" soft sided are 11" and all fit under the bed, closed. Don't even have to do Pats (post# 836) trick when we were on the Freedom.

+1.

I was just going to post this.

Sometimes when I have lifted the bed it looks like the hoover has not seen under the bed for sometime so I stopped putting ours there.

Absolutely true observation.

Up on the suite deck awaiting sail away.

Just saw a man from Nantucket.....

 

Maybe he can accurately measure the suitcase. 🤣🤣

Just continue with what you're doing as a few of us helped you out. 😏🍻

I had a 28" and a 26" hardbody when we sailed, we left them open and both fit under the queen bed with no issues (open). We used them as under-bed drawers for our dirty laundry 😂
