The cruise I have booked is giving a automatic upgrade from 8A,b,c.etc. to a 8g
What does that mean?
Do I want that?
Carnival, Conquest. April 09
Thanks
EB

Edit: Corrected a typo in the discussion description.

Generally the higher the letter the higher the deck. Carnival has been re-catorgizing their ships and you may have two category of balconies on a particular deck. But generally the higher the letter you are getting a more expensive cabin.

EB, They mean different things on different classes of ships now, and some even within the class. On the Conquest It (should) mean an Aft-View Extended Balcony. To most people this would be considered a very nice upgrade.

Here is a link to the Conquest's re-categorized deck plans.

Cruise Fanatic, the re-categorization has been confusing, at least for me. The Balconies on a single deck can have up to four (if not more) categories now. Don't ya love it when they make things more complicated? Aarrgghh!

IMO Carnival had, repeat HAD, one of the best and easiest category systems. Then they had to go and blow it!

Cruise Fanatic, I totally agree! These additional categories that were meant to be upsell opportunities add more confusion than they are worth. IMHO.

Thanks
