Hello,

Is there any weight limit to those pull down beds? I have a 240lb, 6'2", 17 year old. Is he too big for that bed? We're sailing on the Explorer of the Seas. I got a little nervous when I saw that the 3rd berth,the pull-down bed, was over the other beds. How do you get up there anyway?

If there is a weight limit I probably have challenged it. When our son was younger I often had to swap beds with him because he would get scared on the ship. This was often an upper berth. I weigh around 230 and never felt the bunk was in danger of collapsing. However, they are not especially long bunks so your son's biggest issue may be with his height! They have a small ladder they put up at night for access to the upper bunk. When you return from dinner, your cabin will be set up for sleeping with the upper bunk opened up and the ladder attached.

My four sons were jumping up and down from them on our cruise last summer. The oldest two are 160 and 180. Never heard a creak. There is a ladder that the crew puts out for you at night- it stows away during the day.

I recently read something in Carnival's literature that the weight limit is 250 lbs. I don't know if this same limit applies to all cruise lines and all ships.
