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.

Are drinks packages worth it ?

By Peter Wellman

Peter Wellman's blog

It’s a question I get asked almost daily, are drinks packages worth it and of course there isn’t an easy answer unless you want to go through your daily intake on holiday with me! Some people literally work out how many drinks they would have to have to get their money’s worth which is fine but there are other things to consider.First of all do you really want to be thinking about it every day ? How many have i had today, am I getting my moneys worth ? In my opinion no, I li...

Adrian Partridge's blog

MSC Cruises, they just get better and better in my opinion. Last month I wrote about getting on a ship and helping the Caribbean by going there and spending some money. MSC have done a lot more than that with their latest offer of a school for the children.Along with the government of the British Virgin Islands MSC have dedicated a new, building that will serve as a school in Virgin Gorda. All 15 schools were destroyed in the British Virgin Islands during the recent hurricanes, the new pre-fa...
