Beds on a Cruise Ship - Presto Chango

It's Cruise Ship Saturday! Today we're talking about bed configuration.

“It was truly an abomination of nature that one always found the most comfortable spot in the bed five minutes before one had to leave it.” 
― Mia Ryan, The Further Observations of Lady Whistledown

When was the last time you slept on the upper bunk of a bunk bed? If you've traveled in an Amtrak sleeper car like we did a few years back, the answer might be yes. If you've traveled on a cruise ship with more than two people in a cabin, it'll be another yes.

If you haven't cruised before you'd be surprised to find that bunk beds are standard. Traveling with another couple? You won't be booking a cabin with two queens but one with four twin beds. Adults or kids, it doesn't matter. Someone is going to have to take the top bunk.

Take a look.

You can have a queen bed ...
That can be converted into two twins...
That becomes a cabin with bunkbeds. 
I call bottom bunk.
