Question about luggage on Harmony

Recommended Posts

My DD’s friend has a hard sided duffle that measures 14” when lying flat. 

She needs to know if it will fit under a bed on Harmony. 

We’ve had to lift the frame on various cruise ships in order to slide my  26’ that measures 12”

under the bed. 

The friend is concerned that if she lifts the frame and slides the duffle bag under, that the hard frame will create a large bulge or be crushed. 

Anybody know the clearance?

Just measured. Our bag is 12.5 inches, and it rubbed as it went under. That was on Symphony.

Thank you. I think she needs to buy some luggage!

They’re in a balcony. I’ll offer that as a solution. 

I would just take two smaller pieces of luggage and nest them under the bed. 

Princess has very large closets so she’s never had a problem before.

RCI closets are not that small that such a suitcase wouldn't fit.

If she has a balcony, she could put the bag between the balcony wall and the sofa, or the balcony and the bed.  There is space there.  (Currently on Symphony, which has the same cabins as Harmony.  I suspect that OV cabins may have the same possibility)

I haven’t seen it, but a hard frame duffel that’s 14” lying flat sounds awfully bulky!

I can’t remember if it’s a deluxe balcony or standard, but I think it’s the balcony size that makes the difference. 

Standing it up at the end of the sofa might work.

I think a nice 26” spinner would last her a long time and would squeeze under the bed.

Here's a thought, what if she just leaves it open and slides it under the bed? We have a huge suitcase (not hard sided) and we have done that without any problem at all.

You are a genius! Both Hubby and I have new hard side suitcases and I was wondering if they would fit under the bed, I would never have even thought to slide it under with it opened. So glad I read this post; Thanks for the tip!

Most luggage will fit under beds unopened. Open luggage would collect “stuff” from beds as they are used. Face down is a potential but harder to move in and out.

Unfortunately it’s a duffel bag. No way to make it smaller because of the hard frame.

Ours have never "collected" stuff when opened. So, I'm not sure what kind of stuff you think would fall into the luggage.
