Default catagory BL??

I was just looking at prices for my cruise... The cheapest Bal Guarantee was $70 more than what we paid, and the catagory is "BL"
Anyone ever heard of that one?

Category BL is Balcony Guarantee. This means you are guaranteed a balcony anywhere from 8A to 8E. The greatest odds are that you will end up somewhere between an 8A and 8C. You will probably hear from others who have booked a BL and have received a higher category than 8C.

Take care,
Mike

Ok. I was pretty sure it was some sort of bal guarentee... oh... I think it just hit me...
So what you are saying is, I can book a 8a - 8e guarentee, such as 8c BG, that means I'm guarenteed to get at least an 8c or better balcony right?
But if I just book a BL guarentee, I could end up with a balcony anywhere from 8a to 8e, or better.
Did I get it right?
Now I have to call my T/A and see which BG I purchased to begin with.
Thanks, Mike
