Our cabin does not have pullman berths, so instead of having the comfortable bed, my husband and I will be sleeping in the sleep sofa and our 21 year old son and 24 year old daughter will have the twin beds. Anyone know the comfort level of the sleep sofas? we are going on the Explorer of the Seas.
Thanks in advance!

Thin mattress. Nice pillows.

Thanks Dave. Is it possible to get a roll away for one of the kids? How would we go about that if it is possible? the TA assured us that we would have pullman berths, so we do not have a lot of faith in her word, right about now.

I have no personal experience with rollaways on RCI. Surely they have them. This is something your agent will have to check on.

The sofa bed isn't bad according to my son. I don't recall it being so thin that the springs could be felt, but it is just a double bed sized mattress and he weighs maybe 120 pounds.

Kjai - It might be a good idea to request either a mattress pad or an extra duvet for the sofa , the stewards are always very accomodating and you will sleep quite comfortably!

Bon Voyage,

We have gotten and "egg crate" mattress topper for the sofa bed. You do have to request this as soon as you clap eyes on the cabin steward. They have a limited # on most ships, if they have them at all.

Just wondering what size cabin did you get?

Sounds like a lot of humanity for one room unless it's a suite or penthouse....Happy sailing...:-)

we have a category D1, superior ocean view w/balcony; not a suite but we've done it before but have always had berths that pulled down from the ceiling. our stateroom was switched and we ended up with a sleep sofa. we will ask for 'egg crate' in advance. thanks for advice.

We have used the sofa bed on the radiance class and would never do it again.It took up the whole room when open and you would have to climb on it should you have to use the bathroom.The pullmans would be my bed of choice

You will NOT have to climb on the sofa bed to access the bathroom in a voyager class ship. You wouldn't want it open all day, but it is doable for those hours you need to be using it. We always have a D1 balcony room on the Voyager class and travel with four bodies in there--husband and I, daughter (now 21) and other daughter (now 14). We obviously don't have any gender issues so four people on two beds works. I have no idea where you would fit a roll away. You could "center" the bedding on the sleep sofa and put the young folks "feet to head" to reduce the creepiness factor of adult siblings sleeping together, or you and daughter take the sofa bed and sonny and dad double up--Go to bed late and be so tired you don't care where you land. Well, at least you have options.
