Crack the cabinet open, so it has a place to vent the hot air.  

We have also found that if you keep the cooler full, it keeps everything colder.

We had to put ice in it last Jan on the Pride to keep it cool for my meds

On some of those fridges if you can get to the back there is a thermostat that can be turned down .

But I'm sticking with the jmcathome comment 🤣

 

But if yours is cooler you may want to thank me for it

The older ships had wine coolers, no compressor. The newer ships have real refrigerators, ice cold water and beer. As some have said, cracking the door allows better circulation. A compressor needs air flow.

Yup!  We've sailed twice on the Valor.

ABQrobin just made the suggestions for me. 🙂 I always noticed that what we put in the refrigerator never seemed to get very cool.  Then I found on CC the suggestion of leaving the cabinet door open some, and it works! 🙂

Read on a review that someone had followed suggestions to use a clip similar to what you'd use to clip your towels to a chair to keep the door slightly propped.  We'll have to try this on our next cruise.

I wonder if the Sunrise will have a fridge in balcony rooms once it's finished being refurbished in April?  According to the note above the Triumph only had them in suites?

Yes, most balcony rooms on the Valor has a cooler. Nice ship too.

I have sailed on the Elation, Legend, and Victory--always in a balcony cabin--and have never had a fridge.

I don't know what to tell you.  That is copied-and-pasted directly from Carnival's website.  I guess their own site isn't correct?

Could be.  All I know is that none of my cabins had fridges. Maybe they were installed after October 2018.

No. I didn't look under the bed, either.

We were on the Legend in 2016 and there was a refrig, on all ships it is inside that cabinet in desk unit.

Elation and Victory true, Legend has them.  I can post from the Carnival site (sailed her as well) if you would like.....
