You can put 5 in a family Stateroom. Queen bed, day bed, pull down bed and a Murphy bed. It's what we had on the dream. Each kid would have heir own bed. It was fine!!!!

Other than Kendall's duffle bag causing a tripping hazard lol. There are pics on that TR of the room with all beds out, I can find them if you like

I just never had one on the Wonder that could have slept 5, but that doesn't mean they don't have them. We do the HA Villas now, so I think they can only sleep 4, but we would still only have us two. I was just curious....

We'll be packed like sardines that's for sure. I'll need to look into the suggestion of an inside room across from a verandah room and compare prices.

That would be my concern. Where do you put all the luggage for 5 people? Even if we unpacked, which I do, where do you store the suitcases?


At this point it's a pipe dream but I want to be prepared on board.

You can get a bunch of suitcases under the bed. On the Wonder, just lift up and they will fit. They raised the beds on the other 3 ships so the suitcases slide right under.

I guess I need to find some historical opening day pricing.

What I really need to do is pack. It's hard not to pack cold weather clothes. The high is 90* and the low is 70*.
Pack for Mexico I hope, not the cruise yet? That weather sounds FABULOUS!!!!

I think Im going to wait to book anything until getting on the ship, unless of course they come out with fabulous rates I cant resist.

I think putting the kids in an inside room is an excellent idea. Fran and I are perfectly comfortable in the larger HA rooms, so I can't imagine having more than the two of us in a room, and especially one smaller. Adding three more people! We usually have four large suitcases and a few carry ons. I can usually stash the suitcases out of the way, but there would be no room if the couch had to pull out for sleeping.

Under the bed!!! Depends on the ship but on the dream everything fit under the bed and there was enough drawer and closet storage for all. K had storage but chose not to use it. Major issue but it was a K issue, not a space one

Thanks Jill. I am just imagining it looking like a jungle gym or obstacle course.

Pack for Mexico. I woke up today feeling not great but am NOT sick.

I think I'll wait to book on board too. I'm actually grateful for the two months we've got to cruise. It'll give me time to figure some stuff out.

What itineraries are you interested in?

I'm definitely going to look into the 2 cabin option. If its after Gabby is 18 then that would also give her an option to bring a friend as I'm worried about activities for her if she's over 18. Realistically though I'll go with the least expensive verandah option.

Excellent! I doubt we'd sail the Wonder again as me and Joshua will have already sailed it but I think that's the only Alaska option. I'm not sure how I feel about the BIG ships. A K issue, not a space one?

Tell that body it's not allowed to be sick, you've got a vacation to enjoy!


2015 probably won't be a big cruise year, but I am going to do a shorter Bahamian one with some friends in May, hopefully a double dip if it's available. My big trip with mom will be Aulani unless there's a cruise we just can't resist. I just can't wait until they put out the itineraries, I want to plan!

We're even closer today!

Aulani will be wonderful and relaxing. A double dip will be so amazing too.

I've told my body I'm not sick. Period. End of story. It's sort of working. I'm likening it to fuzzy Disney math; fuzzy vacation health.
