As has been said to know more would be of assistance but I would think that it is going to be a fairly tight fit in most cabins and the disruption will be quite considerable so you ought to work out a system that you can all live with. I just hope you are related on on very good terms, I would hate it. .... Ida.

The problem I would find with 4 adults in balcony cabin is that the sofa becomes the sofa bed and when this is pulled out/made up, there is practically no room to move around /get changed / dressed etc. Wardrobe and drawer space might be a bit tight. You dont say what grade of Balcony nor what Ship, as obviously if you have a suite rather that just a normal balcony it may be a little different.

What ship, what grade of cabin? Does it have the sofa bed or the pullman beds? Has has been said it would be a tight squeeze and in somerooms the curtain divider between bed and sofa only pulls across a few feet instead of all the way. Hope you are not hoping for any 'mummy and daddy' private moments......

Might you not be better with two smaller cabins, than one bigger one? Two bathrooms and more privacy.

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...
