My husband and I are going on a 6-day cruise on the Golden Princess along the U.S. Pacific Coast. We have twin beds in our oceanview balcony cabin. I saw something on Princess' website about bed extenders. Has anyone used these? My husband is 7 feet tall and this sounds like an option worth exploring.

I am 6'5 and on cruises I move the mattress down and put a rolled up mattress pad or pillows between the front of the mattress and the headboard. This gives me about 3 or 4 more inches.

I have asked for bed extenders on our cruises but I have not found any (on our last 6 cruises). The mattress option has helped me considerably but for someone who is 7' you might have to be very creative.

Thank you fruby. Did you have any trouble in any other places on the ship? My husband has to duck through doors on a regular basis, so he is prepared to do that onboard as well. Thank you for your reply.

You can always ask your cabin steward for extenders. I would call your agent or PVP now and ask if they can be made available. Maybe with some advanced warning they can be made available??? If not try fruby's idea I'm sure the stewards can find extra pads or bring additional pillows for this purpose if no extenders are available.

As far as having issues elsewhere on the ship, the ship is not any smaller than any land based public area would be. So it should be "normal" for him.
