What do I need to know when booking 3 or 4 berth cabin?

4 berth cabin cunard

This is an upper berth taken from Queen Elizabeth and is typical of upper berths throughout our fleet.

Please note the upper berths fold up in to a recess in the ceiling, when the upper berths are not in use they still extend approximately 9cms from the deck head (ceiling).


Cabin shown is a deluxe inside, size approximately 152-243 sq. ft. 


There are no weight restrictions on the upper pullmans, however there is a weight restriction on the bunk ladder of 130 kg which is approximately 20 Stone.

The upper pullmans are "shock tested" to approximately 300 kg.

Any guest can sleep in a upper pullman, please bear in mind the bed is elevated therefore a lower berth/cot may be suitable for children/babies.

You will be unable to have a King sized bed configuration in the cabin if any of the upper pullmans are in use.
