The superior cabins are a bit larger than the deluxe cabins.

If you liked the EX, you will love the MA.
Most cabins on MA are slightly larger than on EX.
As for difference in size between Superior and Deluxe on the MA, the former are some 20 sqft larger.

There are a few factors, some of which are cabin size and cabin location.

Of course there are other factors. But in general, cabins on NV and MA are slightly larger than those on the older sisters due to different balcony construction

Size doesn't really matter....it is location that counts

When it comes to the difference between Deluxe and Superior (E category vs. D category), location has nothing to do with it. It is all about the size of the cabin. D cabins are larger than E cabins. You will find D cabins and E cabins right next to each other of each deck (6-10) on Voyager/Freedom class ships. And the main difference between E1 & E2 cabins is that E1 cabins sleep 3 or are connecting cabins, and E2 cabins generally only sleep 2. Same with D1 Vs. D2. When it comes to balcony cabins on most class of RCI ships, location has very little to do with it, if anything at all.

We have three people in an E1 on the Navigator. I am under the impression that the third person sleeps in a pullman bed which is over the other bed ( which I believe is two beds put together); do the D category cabins that sleep three put the third person on a sofa sleeper? I know the E1 cabin is smaller, but also thought that the sleeping arrangements for three were different in D. Is this correct or not?

Here is my E1 from the Mariner #7688 it was on the back of the ship so the balcony was configured differently. The D1's are a tiny bit bigger but the balcony is a tad smaller like 42 vs 46 SF. This was a triple and yes the pullman is above the other two beds psuhed together. I have same category bu up one deck to 8390 next time. The navigator will be the same.
