    Can you get a deluxe standard room without bunk beds?

    Welcome aboard, Dona!  

    I’m so happy to connect with a fellow Virginian and talk about Disney Cruise Line together. Thanks for bringing your thoughtful question our way as you get organized for a wonderful sailing next year - no matter the destination or ship, you’re going to have an amazing adventure! It’s my pleasure to help you understand what bed configurations may be available for your family's comfortable sailing.

    There are so many beautiful kinds of families and travel groups onboard, but there is sure to be a stateroom that suits you perfectly. A “deluxe” description can apply to rooms in the Inside, Oceanview, and Verandah categories but there are some similarities. Please know that there are wheelchair-accessible staterooms which may also have “Deluxe” in their description, and they offer additional space and a different layout. Within each category, there are rooms that have a capacity for three, four, or five Guests. You will see the specific capacity listed either in your email confirmation or the description of your stateroom within your reservation online. My family of three is often placed in a room without a bunk bed option, as we don't require the sleeping room for a fourth person. Please note that when you make your reservation, the website would only show you rooms that fit your travel party size.

    No matter the size of your group, please know that the bunk beds are not open and visible all day. When you first enter your stateroom it will have a bed, a sofa, and perhaps an armchair. Your incredible Stateroom Host will magically transform the room each evening while you’re at dinner into the proper configuration for sleeping by pulling down the bunkbed (if needed, and if the room allows) or by changing the sofa and armchair into beds. If you don’t need this extra space and have a smaller travel party, you will never see the bunk bed.

    The next day your Stateroom Host will transform the room back into “living room mode” just as Mary Poppins cleaned up the nursery and you’ll never see the bunk bed, even if you needed it overnight. This process is seamless to you and will support your family’s sleeping needs without being disruptive to your living space during the day.

    I suggest you call Disney Cruise Line if you’d like to know the exact configuration of your stateroom, Dona. (If you book a special guaranteed room category you won’t know the exact stateroom number until much closer to sailing.) If you have a little one, you may also request a pack-n-play or bedrails on your reservation under Special Requests > Child Amenities or request them over the phone if there's a concern with bunk beds for a younger traveler.

    I hope this helps you understand what to expect in your comfortable stateroom next year! Our Stateroom Hosts are some of the most caring, kind, generous people with a heart for genuine service and have made for special memories with my family onboard Disney cruise ships. I know yours will take care of you with the bedding arrangements for a practically perfect voyage at sea. 

    Please let us know what other questions you have as you get ready for this special vacation; we'd love to help! 

    Wishing you magical dreams until your cruise,
