I will have to start my post with a disclaimer saying that I haven't (yet) sailed in a PT room BUT I do have one booked on my upcoming cruise on the Paradise. Let me explain why I decided to book this room.
Last September while on the Carnival Elation, I had the chance to step inside one of the porthole rooms on the Riviera deck while it was being cleaned (nosy I know!). What I saw surprised me. These rooms are the same size as the OV rooms (185 sq ft) and with the porthole windows open, there seemed to be a lot of light that in. I also noticed the movement of the ship wasn't as noticeable as it was on the other decks.
I found these few pictures of a porthole cabin on the Fantasy (same class as the Paradise and Fascination).
Not sure when you sail but if you want, I can post my impressions when I come back from my cruise
Also wanted to answer some of your questions.
Yes, the room steward will put your beds together (and if they aren't you can request they do so). I haven't sailed yet on an inside category cabin so I don't know if they come with robes but I assume they do since even the cheapest ocean view ones do.
No, there are not any hair dryers but you can bring one.
There may not be a sofa but there will probably be a chair of some kind both for the vanity mirror and just one to sit on.
Hope this answers your questions!
