On the Viewliners the bed can be lowered half-down, where there is enough room for a (well, this) 5'10" man to stand under it and still have it provide more sleeping/kid's play room than a Superliner roomette upper berth does when fully down.

I haven't read through al the posts.

But I'd definitely take the bedroom, because it's almost as good as the Sightseer Lounge. Not nearly as expansive , but private - if you keep the curtain open you get the view on both sides. You have to put up with the people passing through, many staring at you as they go through. The Family Bedroom avoids this. But it's lower level.

A superliner upper pivots from the wall and when lowered it does pretty much come to the top of the seats. The Viewliner upper travels vertically on a track, and can be locked halfway making it useful as a shelf or place to layout clothes. You can then push it straight  up the rest of the way, With the upper window and higher ceiling, it is much less claustrophobic than a sl upper.
