    I am planning a 10 day trip on the Excel, and I am interested in the stateroom lay out and sizes. I looked on their site, but it does not give the layout or room numbers. I was on the Excel once before, with a main deck room, and in the bunk, I was head on one wall and feet flat on the other wall. I am 6'4" and it was almost impossible to sleep, except on my back, flat, all night long. Do all the rooms have beds that size, or just some? Which ones, if any, have longer beds. I realize that I will not be able to pick the BEST rooms, but I need a room where the bed is longer than 6'4". If I remember correctly, and at my age that is difficult, I was in a main deck room on the starboard side. If that is the only room available to me, then I will not go.

    Talk to Jason in the office and explain your concern. I'm 6'4" and am fine in many of the rooms.

    As someone who works in the maritime industry I would recommend sleeping across the bed at a slant. I have the same problems being also 6'4 and this is the only way I can get some sleep

    I’m 6’5” and don’t have any problems sleeping on any of the boats I’ve been on including the xl. On some of the other boats it’s actually good to wedge yourself in when it’s rough. The xl that’s not needed as it’s between a battleship and a submarine.

    Never had a problem on any of the boats I’ve been on.
    Call the office and explain the issue, they will usually bend over backwards to make something work for you.

    You need to get into the Turd and Wahoodad suite.

    Also known as room 10.

    Just ask.

    I'm 6-3 and had no issues in I think it's room #13 at the bottom of the stairs on the right. Plenty of leg room for me
