Hi all!

We're sailing on the Norweigian Spirit in April. We've got 4 in our cabin already (two adults, a 6 year old and a 2 year old) and we've got one more person who would like to go. I've heard that NCL allows 5 per cabin in some instances. Of course, they're closed right now, so I can't get them on the line.

Anyone here got experience with having more than 4 in a cabin?

What size cabin are you in?.....unless it's a penthouse or owners suite, 5 people is really pushing it especially with 2 little ones.....With all the luggage and things, stroller, etc, it will be tight....ajoining rooms might be the way to go....You don't want to wreck a cruise by being cramped...Happy cruising...

Most standard cabins inside outside and balcony only hold 4 people. There are family cabins but they are much more expensive in price and can hold a larger number of people. Check out the plans for your ship. I think the only time you can fit 5 people into a cabin is when there is a baby and other people and the baby will fit into the pack and play crib. But that will make for a tight squeeze. I am thinking back to my balcony cabin on Jewel last fall and there was a double sofa bed and two twin beds. There would not even have been room in that balcony cabin for a crib. You should talk to cruise line and see how they can accommodate you but I am pretty sure you will need a much larger room or a family cabin - or two interconnecting cabins - pricy pricy.

Hi Viva, and welcome to cruise-chat.com.

The advice you've gotten about checking with the cruise line, or a travel agent, is good. One other issue is maximum capacity of the lifeboats assigned to each cabin. It's been a while since your post -- please update us as to what's happened since.

Agree with Bob E.......5 in the cabin seems like a real tight fit. Not sure if NCL even allows it. Does anybody know?

Viva,
When are you going in April? You must be on the same cruise as us. We're going the 19th. Happy Sailing, Debbie
