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.

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year.

Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...

By Camilla Edwards

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”.

Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...
