Basically, the higher the number, the higher the deck where the cabin is located is my understanding. A usually is inside, B has window, etc.

Categories can be confusing, and often meaningless when you get right down to it. As tncruiseman says, in most cases a different category just means a different deck even though the cabin itself is no different. Look at the Carnival Inspiration for example - cat. 4A and 4B are inside cabins, but 4A is in Riviera Deck while the 4B is on Main Deck. You pay more for the 4B but the cabin is exactly the same as the 4A. Same goes for the cat. 6A and 6B oceanview cabins. The differences start coming into play when you get into suites and some of the balcony cabin categories on the newer ships.

I tend to worry less about cabin category and more about the physical location of the cabin and it's amenities. Sometimes a cheaper cabin is actually a better cabin since it is in a quieter area, or on a lower deck which actually has a smoother ride than higher decks (for those who worry about motion sickness).

Exactly. I like to pick my own also. It is confusing about the Categories. And they are different sometimes between the ships.

The number refers to the type of cabin.

The letter refers to the deck.

Example: 6A refers to an Outside Cabin on Riviera Deck. 6D refers to the same Outside Cabin except on a higher deck, Empress Deck.

1A is always upper/lower ie. Bunkbeds Inside.

4A is Inside Twin/King on Riviera, 4D would be the same except on Empress Deck.

The Cabins are identical except for the deck.

Hope this helps explain the crazy way they do this

Also as Dave said, it get's more tricky with the balconies and suites.

We don't even want to go into the way they sell them
