Outside cabins have the extra beds that come out of the ceiling. Very clever. so they look like bunk beds. our 16 year old daughter says they are very good. the beds are brought down in the evening by the Steward, while you are eating... and put up completely out of sight, in the morning. Swimming pools are always sea water, but usually quite warm.

If the beds are like the balcony cabins,you will sleep for England.We sailed on Navigator last year to the Baltics.The bed was fantastic,the food and room service is second to none,the staff are very friendly,as for gratuities,we opted out of paying beforehand,on the night before we were left envelopes in our cabin for cleaners waitresses etc,this way we can give appropiate tips,enjoy it.
