LOTS of questions lately about space & measurements. They are in the thread but hard to find, so as we find them we will add here. Again the big question is will an air mattress fit and I think the consensus is only a child sized one, not a twin or bigger. IF you have used one or will be using one - please post photos.
Thanks to scjo68
Both beds are 80 by 60 inches. So definitely queens.
Space between bed and wall by bathroom is 17 inches. But with the bathroom/sink room door slid open, you lose some space so it's 14 inches.
Space between beds is 17.5 inches.
Space between Murphy and door frame is 28 inches at closest point. Door is on diagonal. Murphy bed to window wall is 60 inches.
From foot of bed to coffee maker cabinet is 22 inches.
I tried to measure to bed frames rather than mattresses since frames stick out a bit.
Can't take picture of Murphy right now- pleople napping on it!
No one asked but I wondered myself so- closet rod extension that telescopes out from side of closet is about 9 inches.
Also I do not have connecting room and there is good space between dresser and wall by bath, 50 inches. Luggage rack is there and there is room for another luggage rack as well.
The drawers are 4 inches deep, 13 inches front to back, and 30 1/2 inches side to side.
It could be possible if they start right on Feb 1st but I wouldn't hold my breath. It really will depend on how many rooms they do at the same time is my guess.
When we were on the Wonder in 2015 they were refurbishing a block of rooms each cruise but at the same time it was not nearly as extensive a refurbishment as what they're going to be doing here.
It will be exciting to find out when they start...and where they start! My big decision this September will be whether to request a refurbished room or keep with our preferred location if the rooms we like are not done yet. I'm guessing my choice would be for a refurbished room as there are just 2 in our family + thought of a coffee maker sways me that way!
If renovations start in February as expected, does anyone know from past renovations how long they usually take to complete? I really would like to stay there the end of July but double beds are too small.
