Sharing Iberian Sleeper Compartments

Jump to last reply

I have just booked discount cama turista berths on the Sud Express (Irun to Lisbon) and Lusitania Express (Lisbon to Madrid).

The compartment has four berths, one up and one down on each side:

I would appreciate comments from anyone who has travelled on these or similar European trains as a single sharing with three strangers. The ticketing allocates me to a male only compartment.

Some questions for anyone who may know the answers:

* I am in different coaches but the same berth, 31, in both trenhotels. Is that an upper or lower?
* The space looks limited for luggage. How is luggage stored and secured. I travel light with a small carry-on size case and a day-pack. I don't usually padlock my case; should I?
* The discount tickets are incredibly cheap (about €35) so I accept I get what I pay for, but if space is available is it possible to upgrade on-board to preferente with a payment to the conductor, or to be moved to a compartment that is not full if mine is?
* Any other tips?

TIA
