No reason why not. However note that cabins sleeping 3 or 4 get fully booked up first in school holiday periods.

You will need to check what layout , you may have a bed chair & it is usual that the 3rd & 4th bed is a Pullman bunk , not to worry your steward makes up and puts away beds ready for your use or not we have have our 10 & 15 year old children in our cabin ( suspended from the cellings pull down bunks. Have a great time & Enjoy!

We have cruised five times with our son...from the age of 13 to 19. Staterooms that accommodate 3 come with either a pull-out couch or will arrange for a cot in the room. Those rooms do fill up quickly.

We have cruised 5 times with our son in our cabin, now 16. We went on Explorer last Xmas and are off on Freedom of the Seas this Xmas. We book a balcony cabin which has a double sofa bed (my son is over 6ft and doesn't fancy the pulman beds!) The arrangement works fine even though my son tends to sleep in in the morning and my husband and I are early risers. The balcony also gives you that added space to take a breather if things get 'heated'.

Yes, it is fine - either a sofa or a pullman bed. Three in a room does make for less 'mummy and daddy' time though.....!

Just to give you a different point of view on this. I have two sons who usually share a cabin with us, the oldest being 18. As one would at this age, he likes to stay up late, often not coming to bed until the very early horus of the morning and then sleeping in until lunch time. Personally we prefer to take a cabin with the upper pullmans (bunks) because when he does sleep in late, we still have the floor space to get dressed/changed/ move about etc. If you take the option of the sofa bed, whilst the cabin steward will fold this away when not in use, whilst it is in use it does take up valuable floor space. So unless you are thinking of booking a very large suite with plenty of room, just bear these thoughts in mind.

When is the best time to book a cruise?

By Collette Apak

It’s a question that I am asked many times.Last week I spoke to a customer who booked a cruise way back last Summer with Royal Caribbean to travel this year. They received an early booking discount from Royal Caribbean (plus free parking from ourselves) and were outraged when RCI decided to announce they were now including a deluxe drinks package PLUS the second passenger goes half price. When we added the cost of the drinks package on to the price they paid for their original cruise th...

Toddlers and pools on board

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Choosing the right ship for any age is important, but even more so when picking one that is suitable for children, toddlers and babies. Older children may want the kids clubs, some are just happy with the pool, or some might want more adventurous activities like rock climbing, ice skating etc. But what about toddlers/infants?Some parents with children under 3 might not want to leave their children in the kids club all day, and actually just be happy with a pool that the child can use –...
