In 2006, we had 3 adults in a cabin on the Elation. The girl in the upper bunk was quite content with the bed-the mattress and bedding was the same as the lower beds. As I recall, the bunk was put up with the morning stateroom cleaning and let down with the evening one. Additionally, if we opted to we could pull it down during the day. It was actually a lot of fun having the bunk, because one night the Towel Monkey was hanging from it!
