Same thing I reckon, but sometimes there are different grades for more money, like deluxe balconies or superior balconies....but sometimes cruiselines use terms like this for ordinary balconies....confused ..yep!

I have never heard it stated that way. OV means to me, ocean view....a cabin with a window.

On reflection I would be SURE the room actually HAS a balcony, it can be confusing, I agree with Trip Oceanview usually is a window, I remember on QE2 it was a porthole!

and then when Carnival changed from category 11 and 12s, they went to a Oceanview suite .. well duh. All suites have a balcony, so of course you can see the ocean. Seems like a dumb name to me for a suite.

confusing name, yes!

Now of course the Oasis class on Royal has balcony rooms with no ocean view. They have them overlooking Central Park and the Boardwalk. Terminology changes with ship design.
