Cabin Grades what is the difference ?

Many people who cruise often know more about these than I do !! It is especially difficult with first time cruisers or maybe someone changing brands and believe me it is a minefield out there, here is a link I use all day every day

It has most of the main cruise lines on here, I have picked on Ventura (always seems to be her in my posts)

If you pick the ship and on the left had side the description , open this up an you will get this appear as below, there is a mine of information about cabins, whats in them and the different sizes, where they are on the ship.

This is particularly useful if you are booking a GUARANTEE cabin , where you will only be given the grade, not the number, some people will tell you they can tell you more or less where the cabin will be , this is sort of true, but still a big guess ! This is in the control of the cruise line and another important fact when booking this way you cannot opt out of the upgrade, this is the MINIMUM grade you will receive.
