Packing light is key, and will add to cabin comfort since storage space is limited. For our Caribbean cruise, a swimsuit, cover-up, shorts, and t-shirts was all anyone needed. Even dinner at the expensive Caneel Bay Resort was casual. Most passengers and crew only wore shoes when we went ashore, and waterproof sandals came in handy for beach-walking.
Our category A cabin had four small drawers under the queen-sized bed and a cabinet over the bed (where we stored our backpacks). Although the cabins are tiny, we got used to it in a hurry, and used the cabin for only sleeping and getting cleaned up. The bed was comfortable and we were anchored at night, so didn't experience the rocking and rolling seen on other Windjammers. Most couples seemed to "take turns" below deck getting cleaned up since two people could barely stand in some cabins (unless one was in the toilet/shower)! One good thing about a small sailing ship--it's only a few steps from the cabins up to the main deck, so running up and down the steps was quick and easy.
