Default CABIN QUESTION

Hello All,

Can someone explain what the difference is between a CAT 4, 5 6 etc..
and what is the difference between A B & C.

I'm sailing on the Elation and I'm on the Main deck CAT 6C. Is this good?

Thanks for the help.

Hello. I don't know the exact differences but I'm pretty sure about one thing....
The higher up the number the better, for example, you're asking about cats 4,5,6 etc... CAT 12 is a Penthouse suite...
Also, the letters I think indicate the location of the cabin.
For example cat 4a is probably the least popular (but may be the cheapest) but a cat 4 c might be a better location, like mid ship.

That's how I understand it, but wait long enough I'm sure you get a more detailed answer, and probable more accurate too.
(since I'm still a newbie)

This is probably one of the best descriptions I have read about the different cabin categories. Be sure and scroll down to the 2nd page.

Cat 4 indicates an inside cabin

Cat 5 is an outside cabin with portholes

Cat 6 is an outside view cabin (window)

Cat 11 & 12 are suites

The letters indicate the deck - A being the lowest passenger deck and D being the highest passenger deck.

In your case, you have an outside view on the Upper Deck - this deck is the same deck that the Cat 12 suites are on, so it should be a great berth.

We have sailed on Fantasy class vessels many times and had two 6C cabins. You should greatly enjoy them.

The ocean view is a good cabin.
