Today I will briefly describe our new room.

When you came in the door which has the same setup as the door in the other room and go in one step you are in a corridor that is about two feet wide (.6 metres). On your left is the bathroom with basically the same setup as in the other room except it has a bathtub as well. You then have to close the door by going up beyond it and then turning around and letting it close. You have to put you back against the cabinets that make up the other side of the corridor to perform this action. If you are trying to go out of the bathroom and someone else is trying to get in you have to open the door to the bathroom while they are out of the way, they have to stay out of the corridor while you come out (the door to the bathroom swings all the way so that it is almost flush with the wall). Then you have to go to either the left or right side once outside the corridor to let the other person go in on the other side because there is a bed directly in from of the corridor with maybe another two feet (.6 metres) in between. Then they can go into the corridor and close the door to the bathroom.

So maybe this is a little bit of an exaggeration but it it is 95% totally true.

Once out of the corridor like I said there is a bed. And further beyond that is another bed. These beds have the drop down bed above them. Same setup as in the other room. If you go to the right immediately after getting out of the corridor and go around the bed you have about two feet (need I tell you the conversion at this point) to get past the two beds. Once past though it opens up just a bit. There is a small table in the middle or a space of about five feet by five feet (1.5 by 1.5 metres) on the wall that the heads of the beds are on there is a sofa that folds out and on the other wall is a small desk. Like the one in the first room just a little smaller. The wall opposite to the door is all glass. There is a glass door that you go through and you are on a private veranda. It is about six, maybe seven feet by about eight feet (1.8 by 2.4 metres) it has a few chairs and a small table as well as a nice view. I said that the sofa inside folded out into a bed, well the only catch to that is that it folds out into the only open space in the cabin, the room stewards have to move the table to the side by the window and then pull out the bed. This makes it so that there is absolutely no space between the edge of the bed and the desk and about six inches (15 cm) between the edge of the fold out bed and the regular bed. At night the room is literally all beds but we didn’t spend too much time in it.
