Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone knows how cramped inside quads are on the NCL Gem or similar ship. I heard that it is three beds wall to wall and one bunk. Is this tue, or are there two bunks?

Thanks,
Leo

There are two beds on the floor and two pull down berths from the cabin walls.

Hi, most quads are like that, two beds with two upper bunks..HOWEVER, I just came off the GEM and had a uncomfortable week with a set up we did not expect. Two beds, one bunk above one of the beds and a pull out from under the other that rested on the floor between the two. It was very difficult and stressful. From what I understand, and we were not told this on booking, that a few of the rooms are for 3or4 people..it is those rooms that have three beds and the pull out. JUST REQUEST UPON BOOKING NOT to be placed in one of those rooms. Other than that the room was tight but certainly doable and not much different than any other quad on any other ship. IN THE END>..I still had a good time, just a bit stiff.

Wow! I didn't know that. That would definitely not be comfortable. Sounds like something out of the Three Stooges.

Those may be what some cruise lines are calling "trundle beds."

In addition to the bed placement, you should consider other factors that come into play with four in a cabin, especially if they're four adults.

Storage space becomes a premium, so unpacking requires some creative spatial relationships. Also, it can be challenging when everyone needs the bathroom at the same time to get ready for dinner.

If there are two adults and two young children, obviously, it's feasible to all share a room.

oh Dave you have no clue how uncomfortable it was with one of our party needing the facilities often throughout the night. The result was this person getting up and crawling over and stepping on the floor person often. this person was larger and The space between the beds was very narrow so them being on the floor was not an option either. The key here is to be aware when booking as I wish we were. BUT IT WAS STILL A CRUISE AND THERE IS NOT MUCH IN MY BOOK THAT COULD RUIN A CRUISE NOT EVEN THIS.

Cruising with a party of 4 in a standard sized stateroom of 160 sq.ft or less is gonna be a tight squeeze all the way around! I was fortunate enough to cruise with 4 in a Handicapped stateroom and it wasn't too bad- except when the demand for the "head" took place!!

Since it was a cruise- a great time was had by all!!!

We know how uncomfortable it is, it happend to us on the Star's Alaskan cruise in July. The trundle came out from under one bed and popped up between the other two to make a wall to wall bed.
It happened to us because I didn't do enough research, my own fault.
Be sure to really check into it before booking.
The cruise still was great, the best weather and seas ever.

Thank you all for the advice! I called and they said all inside and outside staterooms are set up that way (three wall to wall & 1 bunk) on the gem. They said some of the other ships offer two bunks but not the Gem.
