We're only been together for 24 years - but if he wanted to separate the beds - he'd be needing to book a separate cabin - on a different ship! 

Oh how silly. We slept in separate rooms on separate floors of the house for a few years due to snoring.

I’m certain it had nothing to do with his snoring. 

Well, after he had surgery on his nose, the snoring improved and we returned to sleeping in the same ro and bed.

 

I suppose no one here has slept in bunk beds on a cruise. We did and had to use a ladder to get into the top one.

Not on a cruise - though we came  close on our last one - some cabins where bunkbeds  but we got 2 lower berths - that was an expedition style ship. Also done bunks on trains - they can be challenging

A suggestion for people whose spouses snore.  My wife used to allege that I snored loudly enough to wake up the dead.  I was asleep of course so I never heard myself snore although I did tape myself and I must admit that I was loud.  I did try that surgery but on my throat and it didn't do any good.   

 

For other reasons, I switched from a standard pillow to a pair of wedge pillows and I also now sleep on my back.  She says that my snoring has almost completely stopped.  Worth a try for couples who suffer from spousal snoring.

 

Funny story on snoring where my snoring probably helped me.  I booked a cruise to Antarctica where I shared a cabin with a stranger as my wife did not want to go on the trip.  I paid for a shared cabin which was obviously much cheaper that a single cabin.  After the first night, my assigned cabin mate was gone and he had switched and paid for a single cabin.  Since I has not requested the switch, I got to get the cabin with 2 beds as a single and did not have to pay for it.  I used one bed to sleep on and the other one to keep all my photo gear and outside clothing so that I did not have to put the stuff away and I could grab it quickly.  

 

Sometimes snoring has positive results.  LOL!!!
