Hey Kevin,
I did a 1A solo two different times and it was great. They don't fold down the top bunk so you have a room with a single bed. Plenty of space for 1.....Mark

Default 1A

They are perfect for solo cruising.

Question about the 1A rooms? Do they have a small refrigerator in them?

Default Cat 1A

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!!!!!!

I will be sailing on the Splendor next summer in a 1A, so you can post a review if you go before then.

I have sailed on the Glory 1A and the room was huge. They said it would have bunk beds, but there was a single.

I re-arranged the sofa to make a larger space. It made the cabin steward laugh.

You will be ok.

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've sailed in a Cat 1 A cabin in June on the Glory, and lucked out with two large picture windows. It was nice.

Default cat 1A

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!
