New Bedding on the Royal

Recommended Posts

Hi, all. We are getting ready to sail on the Royal in a couple of weeks. Does anyone know if the Royal has the new bedding/mattresses installed yet? Thanks, in advance.

We had a new mattress.  We toured some other cabins during a cabin crawl and the suite had the new bedding that we recognized from our cruise on the Crown 7 months ago.

Yeah, the suite roll out of the Bed happened a lot faster and is already complete. The rest of the roll out was slower. But I guess Princess did say that suites would get the bed before the rest of the ship.

Don't know if it's applicable, but when we boarded the Royal a week ago, a huge forklift was removing large pallets of old mattresses. I suspect that at least some of the ship has been converted. Sorry, I wouldn't know how to recognize a new mattress, but the ones we have are very nice....

Thanks for the info, everyone. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that we get lucky and have the new mattresses.  If we don’t, oh well, no worries.

As we were leaving the Royal this AM, I decided to strip the end of the bed and checked the mattress label. It did say something like "Princess Luxury Bed" so I will assume our Baja deck balcony cabin did have the upgraded mattress

What cabin were you in?  We’re in B709 in July. Thanks.

We were on the lowly Emerald deck in the very fron section and we had a great mattress. Huge improvement over the mattresses a year ago.  Wondering if they replace the mattresses in chronological order.  We were in E107, so maybe we were among the first to get the new mattresses (not counting full Suites, of course).

We left the Royal last Saturday morning, April 27th, and wouldn't you know it, our steward told us they were getting the new mattresses that day! We missed it by a week. We had cruised on the Emerald last July and they did have the new mattresses. They were wonderful! I did wake up with a back ache on this trip each day.  The new mattresses would have been great, but that's the way it goes!!

I just got off the Royal this morning.  Worst beds ever in E108!  Felt like I was sleeping on an old box spring!

I disembarked the Royal yesterday.  I kept forgetting to ask my steward if I had the new mattress, regardless it was the best mattress I've ever slept on, so I am assuming it was new!  I was in E407.

Maybe the odd numbered side got the new mattresses first.

That certainly is possible ... ours was a new mattress and we were also in an odd numbered cabin.

Just off the Royal yesterday stayed in L101 and it seems like it had the new bedding. Pillows were so soft and so was the bed. Never asked the steward if the mattress was new or not

My mattress was firm, just the way I like it.

On the Royal as I type, and I watched crew members replacing mattresses on E-deck this morning. Deck 8.
