There is a refrigerator in your cabin. As previously stated, it is stocked with beer, soft drinks, etc. If you consume one, it is charged to your S&S card. It is inventoried everyday. You can take the stuff out of the frig and put it on top so the steward can count it. Then, put your personal stuff in there.
The balconies on the regular cabins are 40 sqft, bit a 8c cabin is an extended balcony so I think that they are 60 to 80 sqft. The suite are 85 sqft so the 8c should be right in between. Happy sailing.
The only balconies on the Conquest that are extended are the ones on the back of the ship. The cabins on the side are the same size as all of the other categories. They do advertise all 8C's as being extended balconies so I was upset when I found that mine was not. Deceptive advertising to me. I did like the location though.
