Default Difference between cat.BB and cat.A??

Dear Cruisers,
My daughter & I are going on the Westerdam July30th. I booked a cat.BB guarantee, and while printng my immigration form saw that they have upgraded us to a cat.A on deck 7. Is there any difference between the BB and the A in size, or is it just location on a higher deck?
Also, with 2 months out before the cruise, in your experience, can I expect that this is the cabin we will have, or might they change it before the cruise?
Appreciate your input!

A balconies are larger than the BB, and the A balconies across the stern are even larger than the other A balconies.
The cabins are the same size, The width of the balconies is the same but the A and B balconies are deeper than most of the BB and BA balconies by a foot or so in the three Vista class ships.

Thanks for the info! Turns out we are located in an aft (back of the ship facing the wake) cabin on the 7th deck, cabin 7128, so that must mean we will have a larger balcony! How is this location for noise and vibration?
I can't wait for this cruise!! It has been a very stressful year so far, and I need this vacation sooo much!!

We have 7131 for our Nov 12 Westerdam Cruise. We hand picked the cabin in December 2003 specifically for the location. I think you will love it!!
