To pullman or not

Hi,

I'm a single woman going on my first cruise with 2 other women.  We're sharing stateroom 7708.  I was wondering if anyone's stayed in this room?  I know there's a pullman, but what I would like to know is whether the couch is a fold out or big enough to sleep on?

Thanks!

I hate answering for things I haven't actually experienced...just mebbe someone in here can answer your specific question re Pullmans...  We actually did cruise on that ship, on a balcony. Neither my wife nor I can remember what that "other bed" was..But in any event, just out of curiousity I googled "Liberty of the Seas 7708"...you get all kinds of descriptions, complete with actual videos (not generic) of that SPECIFIC cabin, taken by past cruisers.  I do it all the time when we're considering a cabin...whats the view, whats above and below, how close to elevators etc etc...hope this helps.

Well it really got me curious, seeing as how we may have had one and didn't even know...but when I googled PULLMAN BEDS, it showed beds that got pulled down from the wall, kind of hung from the ceiling..with a short ladder to get into it.  AND...I guess because it remembered my previous inquiry, it actually showed a vid of a Pullman bed on the ship you're cruising on!  yep, pull down from the wall and you need a ladder...but not to worry, the steward will do it all for you.  As to how comfortable it is...cant help you there....

Believe its a pullout couch.  Can verify if you look at the deck plan map.

That would be interesting, as it would certainly be easier to deal with than some contraption that hangs from the wall. don't understand why thats not what was shown.

OK...so I went to the actual deck plan on RC's site for this ship.  it definitely has a PULLMAN BED...and indicates its "available"...as opposed to the icon for a SOFA BED, which is next door.  And the definition of a PULLMAN is definitely NOT a pullout couch.  Apparently one can have that stateroom without that contraption if only 2 peeps are using it.  Please go look at RCs deckplan and tell me if you disagree.

Yes, the pullmans are the ones that get pulled out of the ceiling. When stowed, you never even know they are there. So much better than the old wall mounted ones that gave me a concussion every time I walked by.

The alternative would be a pullout couch. Both are properly identified in the deck plans.

Thank you everyone!  I really appreciate you taking the time not just to reply, but to look into the situation for me.  You are amazing!

I should have clarified my question.  All I really needed to know is whether the couch in the room is a love seat size or a regular size.  ðŸ˜

The couch will probably be nothing more than a couch, not a pull-out.

The pictures I have seen make it seem like a large love seat (or a small couch). Depending on height, you may or may not be comfortable.

I have heard that the pullmans are comfortable, though, even though they take up a lot of room when pulled down.

 

The best way to look at it at this point is know that you (or the other third party) will have a place to sleep. It may be a good idea to wait until you are on board and able to see for yourself whether you will be able to sleep on the couch or not. You may want to note that all the couches I have experienced on cruise ships seemed to have cement padding.

Too funny!!! 😂😂😂

Thanks for the head's up!

The friend who would have the pullman is very easy going and doesn't mind.  I'm just trying to determine a more comfortable option.  You are most likely right, I'll just have to wait and see for myself.  Thanks again.

I sailed on LOS with my kids two years ago. I don't remember which cabin but the kids had a room with two pullmans. 

 

I climbed up out of curiosity and found it comfy but inconvenient. Also it was easy to bump your head.

 

The couch was very small. Enough room for 1.5 people to sit. No way to sleep on it.

 

The bigger problem will be the size of the room. 3 adults will bump into each other.

 

Keep your sense of humor and you'll still have a great time.
