An outside cabin usually consists of two lower and two upper berths. If you look at the symbols on the deck plan it will indicate in each statetroom by a cross that it has upper pullmans (bunks) or a filled in diamond indicates a sofa bed. It is usual for a balcony to have the sofa bed rather that the upper pullmans. I believe there are age restrictions on the upper berth for the one year old. I believe you can request a cot. Personally I would go for the outside with upper bunks plus cot ( or you may be able to get a bed guard for the lower bunk. I wouldnt go for the balcony with sofa bed as then the children would either have to share the sofa bed or you would be saddled with a cot as well as the sofa bed. Bear in mind that when the sofa bed is folded out it takes up valueable floor space. Hope this helps.

Just to correct myself : the filled in diamond symbol indicates as sofa bed plus 3rd pullman. An open triangle indicates a sofa bed.

Thanks for that advice. I hadn't thought about the fact that a sofa bed would take up even more floor space although I guess that's obvious! Looks like we'll go for the cabin with an upper berth for my 9 year old and request a cot for the one year old.

We were on the Voyager in July 2008, my husband and I, my 12 year old son and my 2 year old daughter. Two single beds pull down from the ceiling. My son had one and my daughter was in a travel cot provided by the ship. It was a really good mamas and papas one. We got the room attendant to take a glass table out of the room to give us more space and also as I was worried that my daughter might fall and bang her head on it. You are hardly in the room so I certainly wouldn't pay for a bigger room. You will be fine.

Thanks for your advice. I booked a cabin with an upper berth a while ago but it's good to know that the travel cots are good quality. Hopefully that means there's a better chance of the little one sleeping (and us all sleeping!) if she's comfortable.

The room attendant will remove the cot during the day and when you return from dinner all of the beds are made up and the cot is back in place.

Rocky Mountaineer Part Three

The Silver Leaf carriages are a single storey carriage but have large panoramic windows with an additional curved glass panel as the roof curves although the centre of the roof is solid unlike on the Gold Leaf. The windows allow you to see the scenery well so dont worry about missing out.The seats were again spacious and comfortable. They are...

P&O Smarten up the passengers!...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

No doubt you’ve seen the latest notification from P&O outlining their new Dress Code, and its causing some controversy I can tell you!No more ‘questionable’ slogans or images on clothing, no Fancy Dress – only permitted on ‘Theme Nights’, and only what P&O deem suitable. No Denim, Football shirts after 6pm. This type of outerwear will be confined to your cabins! (No mention of Rugby or other sports?) May need more clarification P&O, as wh...
