Air Matress question


Recommended Posts

I’ll be on symphony of the seas in a neighborhood balcony and wondering if anyone thinks a twin air mattress would fit in front of the couch area. I didn’t see air mattress in the list of things not allowed. Thanks.

That is a very unusual item to pack on the cruise, but I cannot see why they would be prohibit you from bringing it, other than maybe power issues to fill it up with air. 

I cannot speak to the neighborhood balcony, but I was just on Symphony in a standard ocean view balcony room.  In that room, there was not much floor space between the couch and the desk/storage cabinet across from it.  If it could fit, I am sure it would be very tight with no walking space around it.

I am curious why you would need an air mattress?  There should be sufficient bed space for all the room occupants as is.

I was actually wondering the same thing because I know my 16 year old daughter and 12 year old son DO NOT want to share the pullman bed.

Welcome to the boards! A Pullman bed on Royal is always a twin, so no sharing possible. It comes down from the ceiling.

Oh sorry, it's a sofa bed- not a pullman. but my son and daughter wouldn't want to share a bed no matter the size. you know, kids want their privacy😄

We had an easy solve to the sleeping arrangements problem.  When there were 2 beds, son slept with dad, daughter with me.  Somehow we managed to sleep apart for a week and 42 years later are still married.

I would be on board with that if they were not twin beds. 😅

Guess I was lucky, my kids didn’t care.  Come to think of it, my brother & I were the same way. Growing up we lived in a 2 bedroom apartment so we shared a room.  After he went off to college, we moved into my grandmothers house with a room for each of us.  When he came home for a visit, he still slept on the other twin bed in my room.  I don’t think it occurred to either of us to do otherwise.  We always listened to music & talked half the night.  Couldn’t do that in separate rooms 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Ditto, here.  We're booked on Voyager of the Seas with "Spacious Oceanview Balcony," so pulldown Pullmans aren't an option - just a big bed and pullout couch.  My 12 y.o. daughter and 17 y.o. son don't want to share the pullout, nor do they want to sleep with me or my wife.  We're thinking of one kid sleeping on the couch (not pulled out), and the other on the floor with pillows/blankets.  I'm not sure if they have rollaway beds or not, but that's not a bad idea.

I was looking at some of the pictures of the park/boardwalk balconies and...I may be the naysayer here...I would worry about fit.

Even if you don't open up the couch to it's bed size, i think even an air mattress at the foot of the couch will essentially block you guys from crossing over to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Maybe you can go with a sleeping bag on top of extra blankets?

Or, to share the double pull out bed, maybe a long body pillow laid down the center of the bed so they don't have any chance of kicking or rolling over on each other during the night?
