Cruise Room Categories - Norwegian Crown
To get an idea of how categories work on a cruise ship, here are the category entries for the Norwegian Crown, part of the NCL cruise line.
|AA||455||Owners suite||Balcony, floor-ceiling windows, living room, whirlpool bath|
|AB||360||Penthouse||Same as owners suite, but smaller|
|AC||290||Suite||Large windows, living room|
|AD||200||Suite||Large windows, living room|
|AE||190||Minisuite||Large windows, sititng area - Riviera deck|
|AF||200||Minisuite||Large windows, sitting area - Lido deck|
|AG||200||MinisuiteD||Obstructed view windows, sitting area - Lido|
As you can see from this top area, the primary definitions of the rooms involves the room size and the deck. Next come the group of rooms that have an ocean view - i.e. a window of some sort.
|CC||165||Superior Oceanview||Extra large window, sitting area, Marina deck|
|C||165||Oceanview||Extra large window, sitting area, Laguna deck|
|DD||165||Oceanview||Picture window, sitting area, Coral deck|
|D||165||Oceanview||Large window, sitting area, Laguna deck|
|E||165||Oceanview||Picture window, sitting area, Coral deck|
|F||165||Oceanview||Extra Large obstructed window, sitting area, Lido deck|
|G||165||Oceanview||Porthole, sitting area, Laguna-Coral-Playa deck|
|HH||165||Oceanview||Porthole, sitting area, Laguna deck|
|H||165||Oceanview||Porthole, sitting area, Coral deck|
Finally, there are the rooms that are in the interior of the ship - they have no windows at all. Some people call these "caves". Really, these are ways to get on a ship as cheaply as possible. You really only sleep in your room. You do everything else out in a public area. So if that sleeping room is dark, it's a good thing!
|II||160||Superior Interior||Private bath, TV - Riviera, Lido|
|I||160||Inside||Private bath, TV - Marina|
|JJ||160||Interior||Private bath, TV - Laguna|
|J||160||Interior||Private bath, TV - Coral|
|K||160||Interior||Private bath, TV - Coral|
|L||160||Interior||Private bath, TV - Coral|
|M||160||Interior||Private bath, TV - Playa|
|N||160||Interior||Private bath, TV - Playa|
Since the interior rooms have no view, often the only difference is what floor they are on.
