*__Sharing Twin Cabins

The National Reservation System recognises three gender options for bookings using Sleeper Twin Supplements:

  • Together

  • Male

  • Female

When booking Sleeper Twin Supplements (XBD) for 2 customers travelling together, choose Gender “Together” (not Male / Female), otherwise the reservation system may place them in separate single sex Twin Berths.

Single customers buying this Supplement also have the option of sharing a Twin berth with another customer (of the same sex) who has also booked to share. Where single passengers book shared use of Twin Berth accommodation using the Twin Supplement, t__he reservations system will only book two separate passengers into the same Twin Berth if their stated gender, joining and alighting stations are all the same.
