It seemed back a year ago when we reserved our Superior Oceanview Room/Balcony that there were 2 categories D1 and D2. Now that it's the week to pay the balance of the cruise I see D3, was that always a choice? Can someone explain the difference to me. Also what's the difference between Superior and Delux?

Hello cousins, The "D" (1-2 and 3)catagory cabins are the same size. The "E" catagory cabins are a bit smaller. A deluxe stateroom would probably the D-1 catagory. There really isn't any difference that I noticed between any of the D catagory cabins I've stayed in. I think the superior staterooms would be the E catagory. I'll be in a D-2 on deck nine on the Mariner and a E-1 on deck eight on the Liberty. I'll try to pay more attention to the difference. On the Liberty I'll be in an aft corner cabin, so the balcony will be a lot bigger.

Adding to what Sonny said, I believe that the Voyager class ships are the only ones to offer the "D3" category staterooms.

D1 Superior Oceanview $1709
D2 Superior Oceanview $1589
D3 Superior Oceanview $1469
E1 Deluxe Oceanview $1459
E2 Deluxe Oceanview $1449

I'm not seeing on the website -why such a difference?

If I am not mistaken, the D3 category is only available on the 6th deck (the lowest deck to have a superior oceanview) of a Voyager class ship. After that, the other classifications are probably priced by deck and position on the ship. There are some variations on balcony sizes but I don't know how much that would impact, if any, on the price.

Depends on which ship and the sailing date. My next cruise on the Mariner cost me $747.00 per person for a D-2 on deck nine. Plus I get another $200 off for diamond status. I've already seen a balcony cabin priced lower than an outside cabin, and also saw D catagory for less than E catagory. When the cabins are nearly sold out, the price will go up.

Well it seemed to me our price went up $20 pp when we switched to the "port side" of the ship. We also have a room with a shared door to the next room so I don't know if that makes a difference. We supposedly don't have an obscurred view. I wonder if the balconies that do are cheaper?
Oh well I was just curious on how there can be so many prices for a "balcony room".
