I am not sure I understand the way the cabins are in categories. For instance, is a 6A better than a 4E? Can anyone explain? Thanks!

A 6A is an outside cabin. A 4E is an inside cabin. It depends on whether you want a window in that example. Sometimes an inside cabin can be a good choice if it is on a deck closer to what you like.

For the most part, when dealing with standard cabins an inside is an inside, and an outside is an outside. They are the same size cabins. The category really indicates which deck the cabin is one. So a category 4A inside is on a lower deck than a 4E, although the cabin is identical. But the 4E will cost more - the price for being on a higher deck. Oddly enough, the cheapest cabins are on the lowest decks yet they have the best ride if the seas get choppy.

I've said this many times and I'll say it again...and it's strictly my opinion. An inside room is an inside room and an outisde room is an outside room on Carnival...it doesn't matter what floor you're on or if you're bow or stern. Don't spend money on your room...spend it on the other things. The rooms are all the same and you only sleep and shower...and you know what...in your room!

Just be careful of that 1A Cat unless you're partial to bunkbeds.

However, the 1A has more floor space than a 4A - for those who are either traveling alone or with a platonic friend!
