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.

For those of you that know, I was on board the beautiful, elongated Silver Spirit in Belfast.I will keep my words to a minimum and let you watch the video, should you wish, but, needless to say, it was an incredible experience.From the moment we walked on to the moment we left, it was just, bliss. The fact she was in such an iconic port of call helped, bathed in sunshine, you would think we were in St Tropez or suchlike.The key thing for me, understated elegance and class. It wasn’t qui...

My Azamazing Journey Part 2

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

If you have read my last blog you will now that my journey began in Nice beforeembarking on the lovely Azamara Quest. It was a brilliant start to my trip with probably the easiest check-in, with a glass of prosecco in hand, I`ve ever experienced. After this, it’s definitely small ship cruising for me!So what is she like? I had a conversation with one of my clients last week about Azamara and he said he thought the ships would be too formal and posh for him. How wrong could he be?The s...
