RCCL Mattresses

Recommended Posts

So ladies and gentlemen,

I'm reading horror stories about mattresses quality on RCCL ships (other discussionsites). However, I wanted to bring this question to the blog because I believe this is the place for the most informative answers😊🙂

Question, Are RCCL beds comfortable or not? I'm particularly interested in those who have sailed Navigator of the Seas this year(taking into account everyone prefers different levels of firmness in a mattress). I am fond of Medium mattresses.Thanks for the help guys and gals. As a newbie to cruising I'm finding myself obsessed with everything cruise related..lol..

I have experienced some very hard mattresses in the past but it seems that lately they’ve been better.  Maybe I’m just getting used to them. I used to write and ask for a mattress topper but all they do is add one of those thin, quilted mattress pads so it was a waste of time. I no longer do that.  I do, however, ask my cabin attendant to place 2 folded duvets beneath the sheet and it helps some.  It’s just easier to deal directly with the cabin attendant.

We sailed on the Harmony of the Seas, the mattress for me was horrible. 

I do not like very firm mattress. 

Because of this site, thanks guys, I knew I could ask for a mattress topper. 

Our room attendant ended up putting two toppers and I was fine. 

My daughter who shared the same bed was fine.

WAAAYTOOO, that is what our attendant did too, she said the actual toppers would not help me. 

I should've made that clearer on my original post, thanks!

If you have issues, talk to your attendant, they are so helpful!!

Hello!  I have not sailed on NOS, but I have sailed on quite a few others, I can tell you that we have only had an issue on one cruise on Vision of the Seas.  The beds were so hard that we were taking Benadryl to fall asleep (wish I knew about this board and tips that I have since learned).  But outside of that one particular cruise we have had NO issues with the beds, we are both side sleepers and prefer a medium bed.

I sleep way better on a cruise than I do at home - I cannot find a mattress that I'm comfortable on at home. Or maybe it's the pillows.  All I know is that the only time I ever get quality sleep is when I'm on a cruise (so imagine that I never got a decent sleep between 2010 and 2019, when I had a break from cruising!) At least I sleep well 2-3 times a year now, lol.

The answers are going to very subjective. Just because some say one thing doesn't mean that will be your experience.

People, think about going mattress shopping, particularly with a significant other/spouse.  We all have different firmness/softness we like in a mattress.  The same applies here.  If you are not comfortable to the point where you cannot sleep, try to ask nicely to your stateroom attendant to see if there is anything they can do to make it better.  But note, that they may not be able to however, it doesn't hurt to ask nicely.

Are the beds comfortable? Does broccoli taste good? Is that new movie any good? Is 11pm too late to stay up?

There's no need for the sarcasm Matt, I'm aware of this moot point. However, I wanted people's opinion. And I wanted other people's experiences overall and possible remedies if they in fact did experience a mattress that was  uncomfortable to them (I Am Brand New To Cruising). If there's not any helpful information that you can offer, please can you refrain from posting to my comment section.

I don’t believe Matt was trying to be sarcastic. He was trying to point out that people’s taste in mattresses are indeed subjective. And I would be careful about being rude to him because he is the creator and maintainer of this entire site and blog. He may not get offended but others trying to offer you advice might. I myself am already upset at your response to him.

We recently sailed the Harmony and our stateroom attendant swapped out the mattress for my wife -- she wanted something softer for her bad back.  So I'd recommend talking to your Stateroom Attendant.

From this reply, I could see that mattresses will not be your only problem when you sail.

And as I stated before and in the post itself, I am aware of people's taste, and that they vary. And as to being careful, I am free to feel what I want and respond how I want.  You being upset by response does not change how his response seemed sarcastic. We all have opinions😁😉😊

Thank you for your help. I'm new to sailing and want to just make sure that I know what to do if the situation arise
