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.

What Makes Your Cruise Holiday?

By Robin Clarke

Personally, I love to try different cruise lines and itineraries to get a feel for what the cruise line has to offer and working in this industry can help to offer other customers a more personal approach with my feedback.Although I have loved every single cruise I have been on, t...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
