Cabin Categories. What do they mean?

I'm currently booked on the Reflection, in a Category 2A cabin.  It is a balcony cabin on Deck 7. How does that compare to other categories? Are there other balcony categories that are better or worse, ie: less or more expensive?
What do these numeric/alpha categories mean?

Mostly locations within veranda cabins, the verandah/aqua/concierge rooms are all the same size, different perks....ie verandah vs concierge vs aqua all have somewhat different perks given to them.   but same size room on the Reflection.  Some of the verandahs are bigger, ie the 1A verandah rooms some of the rooms are on the slants and have larger balconies.

There are lots of category and as others say it generally relates to Room Type, Floor and Location.

 

There are four basic stateroom types (and of course, some outliers).
  • Inside Staterooms.
  • Ocean View Staterooms.
  • Verandah Staterooms.
  • Suites.

Sub Categories - broken down

  • Location.
  • Views.
  • Size & Shape.
  • Window or Verandah Type.

 

In Category 2 there is a A, B and C and the A is the most desirable and highest price.

 

The Categories for Ocean View  -   Generally the lower the number the better the location by floor and the lower the Alpha number the better the location.    So in your case a 2A is the best room in the category 2.

2A should be a nice room in a good location and I would not worry.  On your floor, there are more and less expensive cabins which are related to location and size of balcony.

Also 2D, which is obstructed view,  2C has partially obstructed view. These are mainly on deck 6.

The 1st attached photo was taken on the balcony of a 2C cabin.

The 2nd photo shows a standard 2A cabin on deck 7.

The 3rd photo shows the larger angled 1A balcony.

On the Edge-Class, there is another basic stateroom type, the falsely labeled "Infinite Veranda."  This is an Ocean View Stateroom with a large picture window that opens (if the captain has not overridden the controls and locked the window closed).  There is no veranda as we all (except for Marketing) understand the term.  So I consider this cabin to be an Ocean View.

Thank you all so much! This was very helpful.  Especially the photos that Upwarduk posted. I'm trying to figure out why I am 2A and our friends are 1A, and they are paying about $300 less than we are. That doesn't make sense.

Booked at different times, perhaps?  Fares have been all over the place over the last year.

It about 20 years old. I bought it from a catalogue company called Betterware.

Once covid restrictions are lifted join one of the "cabin crawls organised by Roll Call members. You get to see lots of different types/grades of cabin (please agree to show yours as well) and the crawl usually ends in a Royal Suite. On our Transatlantic in 2019 the crawl included a "Poker game" which added to the fun. Depending on how many sign up you walk round in groups of 6 to 8 - great fun and very informative.
