By all means do a 1A. I went on a Singlescruise last Dec. on the Carnival Freedom. It had a single bed and a sofa that could be converted to a bed if needed. I was in cabin 1211. The walk was a little long and in bow section, but the price was worth it. I sailed for about 750.00 when other cabins were going for more. And yes, they did have mini- fridges in them also. Had 2 portholes and cabin was just as big as a standard outside one. If you book thru Singlescruise, ask for a 1A as they don't advertise them. They usually get a few each cruise and if you want to stay solo, it will save you money over the single supplement for an inside cabin. More money to play with!!!!!!
Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream

Here is a video I found on Youtube. The lady is on the Carnival Escatasy and in a cat 1A. I thought it was quite a good video. She goes into depth about whats in the cabin and shows the cabin very well
Well I tried to embed it but I am stupid, so here is the link.
I just sailed on Splendor 4-day cruise with one other person in a cat 1A. (was also on the transatlantic but in a different cabin). The cat 1A had its good points and bad points. It was a little inconvenient with the bunk bed. I think this particular cabin was for handicap also, because the bathroom was huge, and very nice. The room was also big, and there was a refrigerator, and it was on deck 10 which was very convenient. It would be perfect for 1 person or for 2 if you don't mind climbing up on the bunk and having limited head space when trying to sit in bed. The price was great too!
