Joe - What ship are you on? We had a cat. 11 on the Pride. It was very nice with a large balcony, dressing room, double sink in the bathroom and a standard size bathtub with whirpool jets. All cabins on the Pride (and sister ships Legend and Spirit) have refrigerators. And yes, you are eligible to use the Skippers Club for preferred boarding. Other than that, there is no difference in service.
