I must admit I get confused by the various cabin "CAT" designations. They seem to differ from cruise line to cruise line and even from ship to ship within a given cruise line. Can some of you veteran cruise folks straighten me out? e. g. What "CAT" would be the best mid-ship, outside location relatively near the dining room on, say, RCCL's Legend of the Seas? As Lucy Ricardo would say..."splain" please.

For the Legend I'd say a category G cabin on deck 3. You are just a flight of stairs away from the dining room.

I don't understand this either. My parents are joining our family for this vacation, and their room is the exact same amount of square feet as ours, but we had to have the two pull down beds for the kids. Our room cost more, but we have the same floor space...so I guess it is the expense of the beds in the walls?
We are Cat.L Room 9353. Since we are so high, will that mean feeling more motion?

Most of the cabins are the same size, but the catagories are priced depending on where they are on the ship. You state you have a cabin for 4 and your parents have the cabin for 2, then of course you would pay more if they are the same catagory because you are paying for the 3rd and 4th person. Are your parents also in a catagory L?, if not, and say they are on a lower deck, then their price would be less per person based on what deck they are on. Lowest priced cabins start on lower decks...higher priced cabins on higher decks. Basically if location does not matter, then go with the lowest catagory on lowest deck, but keep in mind depending on which ship you are on, there is a limited amount of quads and triples.

Hi,
My parents are CAT Q, rm.7687. Mariner of the Seas.
I understand that my total amount would be more since I have the third and fourth person to pay for, but passanger 1 and 2 cost more than her passanger 1 and 2. That's the part I don't understand.
I just told the travel agent that I wanted the cheapest room- knowing we would not be in there much, and I got CAT L Rm9353. Maybe there were no more rooms available on the lower decks.
Thanks for your help.

Catagory Q does not have the triple or quad space, that is the lowest inside catagory and if you look at the deck plans you will see that all Q catagories are either at the very front or the very back of the ship. The lowest catagory on the Mariner that can accommodate quads starts at catagory L. Even though they are the same size cabins, location decides the price. Catagory L is 4 catagories higher in price then Q, but the kicker is that catagory L starts at deck 6 and goes up deck 10, catagory Q is only on deck 6-8, actually looking at the deck plans there are only 27 catagory Q on the Mariner. Since your parents got a Q on deck 7 and you got an L on deck 9 you both did pretty good.

Wow, that is great to hear. I am so excited to get on the ship. I know my kids are going to be in total awe over the size. Your information has been so helpful. Thank you for taking the time to explain it all.

You are quite welcome. Glad it eased your mind somewhat. I know you are excited...Mariner is a great ship, I have quite a few clients that have sailed on her and love her.
