Default Refrigerators?

Does anyone know if there are refrigerators in the interior cabins?

Ours on the Explorer wasn't anywhere near as cold as our ice chests (coolers)!!!

Our room air was much cooler than that of the fridge

My husband (diabetic) needs to keep his meds cool - are the refrigerators
strong enough for that or should I request something special. Of course,
we can get all the ice we need from the room steward, right??

To be honest, I would request the ice

Seriously, the fridges are NOT cold enuf for anything to be kept cold much less cool.

If you put a bottle of water in the one we had it would only be a tad cooler than never being cooled at all.

Not worth the risk with meds.

It depends on which ship you are talking about. Last time on the Majesty, there was no fridge in the inside cabins.

Every cruise line I've been on (I've only been in balcony staterooms) have had fridges. I get to the room and take out all the crap they have in there (to try to entice you to spend money) and put my stuff in there. Mine kept things cold.

If you need something to keep medicine cold, ask the attendant, they may have something you can use to keep it cool. I know if you write ahead of your cruise, they will make accomodations for you. Good luck!

The ones on RCI are bad, but the ones on Carnival cool everything. They make sodas very cold.
