Ever ask for different cabin furniture?

One of the few drawback about PC is that balcony cabins on their older ships do not have a love seat. You get a desk chair and one other chair with arms.... not particularly comfy on an extended cruise (which is mainly why we book mini suites on the older ships). While the newer ships have a deluxe balcony option that includes a love seat.... most of the fleet does not.  

Has any ever request a furniture change (such as changing out a chair for a more comfortable one)?  How did that work out for you?

I use the balcony in the morning to enjoy my coffee and maybe watch the Sunshine and in the evening to enjoy a glass or two and watch the sunset. I haven't ever asked to have the furniture changed for other stuff.

I  am like CTAV.  I use it in the morning and evening or while docking.  Never asked for a change in furniture.  Never even crossed my mind.  On CCL there is a table, chair and a recliner.  Good enough for me.

Hmmm, it’s never even occurred to me to ask for different furniture.  I know the crew tries to be accommodating, but I gotta wonder how they’d react to such a request?

I never thought to ask... There was one time I was sad that we didn't have the love seat in our balcony room... We just rolled with it. BF was a but sad he couldn't sleep on the couch lol

I wouldn't think they would have any other types of furniture to replace it with -- only with the same type. If a chair is uncomfortable, they could only change it for the same type of comfortable chair.

Thanks for the feedback!

We called PC a couple days ago regarding the furniture issue because we are considering the 60 day Circle So. America cruise in 2018.  For the record, they won't change out chairs. But just because something has not been done before doesn't mean it can be done going forward. We figured it was a long shot, but the only stupid question is the one not asked.

I agree -- the worst they can do is say "No".

I absolutely agree with this statement.

On the Voyager of the Seas, we asked to have the glass table removed from the cabin.  There just wasn't room for it.    They left it in the hall, and we just used it for room service trays.
