No, sorry, not what you think hehehe...looks to me like our balcony cabin on BREAKAWAY is laid out so that one's head is toward the bow...never thought about it b4...can't really remember if we ever had one like I guess its no biggie...would you feel funny sailing that way??

I don't think I would...actually I don't think i would notice the difference.

I have had cabins facing both ways. The direction didn't matter to me but the opposite side of the bed thing is what got me HappyHappy

We have not had a problem no matter which way the bed faces. We have had both configurations.

Wouldn’t bother me at all.

As long as the bed and pillow are comfy I can sleep in a bed facing any direction.

I've had beds that point to the front, the back and the side. It doesn't really make a difference on the big ships.

If I'm on a ship, I sleep well.

Interesting thought. But I don't think it makes a big difference one way or the other. Am trying to think but it seems to me that on most cruises my head has been towards the bow and feet to the stern. Either way should not be a big switch but i can imagine turning 90 degrees would be different but I understand some inside or portal cabins are set up that way

Yeah I understand some of them are....but somehow I think it has to do with facing forward driving, or something...I never thought about it b4...and I don't really care either...wife's comment was, its a bed she doesn't have to make etc its all good...

Do not think you'll notice.
