My kids have been on the sofa bed 8 cruises-worth. A few years ago we started requesting and egg-crate mattress topper. They have only cruised on newer, Voyager and Freedom class ships, and been plenty comfortable. One of them could sleep on the roof of a moving car, and the other can hear if someone sheds a skin cell in the room. Both seem to be able to rest comfortably on the sofa bed.

Also even uninflated this mattress will have to be packed. They are not that light weight and a lot of airlines are charging for luggage still. I am not in my room over much but concur with the above sentiment: I would not want to maneuver around it all day.

If you request a mattress topper or extra duvet to go under the bottom sheet do so early--there are only so many extra items on a given ship.
