Does anyone know if the upper (pull-down) bunk for a third person in the outside oceanview cabins on the Celebration will accommodate a GROWN-UP comfortably? My husband and I want to take a cruise this fall with my somewhat disabled mother and are wondering if fitting 3 adults in a cabin will work. We don't mind close quarters, just looking for a bed that fits other that a child! If the upper bunk won't work, we'll have to consider a second cabin for the 3rd person, I guess. -Claire in Jacksonville, FL

it will accomodate an adult, but it may not be the place for your mother as you need to climb a ladder to get into it. the third bed makes the room seem extremely small. you need to duck underneath of to get around the room or crawl across the bed.

The bed is pushed back up during the daytime.

Claire - perhaps your mother has a friend that would like to go along and split a second cabin. You would definitely enjoy the cruise more and have pleasant memories instead of frustrating ones.

We're a family of 4. Our two daughters sleep in the bunks. They are 17 and 13 years old. They like the beds. I know my older daughter can't sit up without hitting her head on the ceiling. It's not exactly the Hilton, but it can be done. I'm not sure about any weight restrictions on the upper bunk. Check with Carnival.

Depending on the cabin, you may have enough room to ask for a cot to be rolled in at night and put away during the day. If you're over 40, it becomes a chore getting in and out of the top bunk.

Take it from someone who knows.....the bunks can be a challenge for many adults. When we started cruising with our son he sometimes felt afraid of using the bunk - which meant good old dad got to sleep there. It really reminded me of my Navy days! Small ladder to climb up, no head room, etc. Definitely something for people under 30.

The bunk is a whole lot bigger than my old rack on the Jersey, Missouri, Doyle, San Jac, and Groves. Mattress is a lot thicker as well. Food is better, and booze underway. I should have started cruising years ago...
But seriously, my 12 year ols likes the bed well enough, as does my 14 year old neice. I however would rather sleep in the bed, rather than the bunk.
We are taking a quad cabin in March on the Inspiration, and it looks like as the only guy, I'll have much more room in the passageway, than in the cabin (go Lido Deck!!!)
