We've been offered an upgrade from balcony on D10 to mini-suite on D11. Other than gaining a tub, which neither my wife or I use, I don't see that it's worth the additional $$$. The upcoming NE/Canada cruise may be too cool for the balcony much anyhow.
All you really gain is the bigger cabin and balcony. No added benefits or perks. To me this is a plus just because I prefer more space.
Two years ago on Star we had a coffee maker in the AF but my SIL and husband only had the electric tea pot. This has probably changed. We haven't had a Cat BX cabin since then so I don't know if cat BX cabins have the coffee maker.
