My wife met a woman in her Curves gym class who is so very enthusiastic about Grand Circle Cruise Line that we think we want to take a cruise on that line.  But we have a question that she was embarrased to ask--it looks like the European cruises mostly have a twin bed type set up.  There doesn't seem to be any way to put the two beds together.  She gets concerned with strange noises in the night and doesn't want to "sleep alone."  Is there any way to get around this problem for us?  Thanks for your replies,

The two Russian River ships have twin beds that can be moved together.  And I believe the new Mediterranean ships also have that.  Unfortunately, as far as I know the European river ships all have the couches that convert into single beds.

 While the river cruise ship cabins are more than adequate, having the twin beds does not really mean "sleeping alone" can pretty much reach out and touch the other person.  You might also like the feature on the Aria which makes it easy to raise the head of the bed...much like those pool lounge chairs.

Do consider a river cruise.  You can see so much so easily.
