Default storing hard sided luggage

I am wondering if hard sided luggage will store under a cruise ship bed since it isn't as flexible? Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks

They should fit, but just in case they don't, you can ask your cabin attendant to store it for you, they won't mind.

Just leave it open, lay it flat and it should fit easily.

Default Don't worry, enough storage space for suitcases

Hello! The frame of stateroom beds usually reaches lower than the slatted frame (or whatever it might be). So if the space underneath your bed seems to be too narrow, just lift up the bed a few inches (it's not that heavy!) and you can push at least two large suitcases underneath, lower bed again - tadaaa!

That's what we've been doing for years. Once you've cleared the bed frame, just about any suitcase will fit under the bed. Unless you still have a steamer trunk. I can easily lift the bed with one hand and slide the suitcase under with my foot or the my other hand. Worst case is that it would be a three second, two person, operation. One lifts, the other slides. Easy.

Take care,
Mike
