Default Upgrade on Jewel worth it?

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.

The only other real benefits of the mini suites are 63 more square feet inside and about 16 square feet on the balcony. For me like you the tub just makes taking showers more difficult.

I have booked and moved to mini suites on several occasions but only when the price delta was very small and two times when the AF pricing dropped after final below what I had booked a BA for .

Yep:

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.

Take care,
Mike

We has a coffee pot last year in a BA. I'm in AF this year so I expect the same.
