what is the difference between 2C and 2B?

Since this is my first European cruise I have a question which some may consider dumb! :confused: My TA informed me I was upgrading on the Celebrity Summit from 2C to 2B. My cabin number is 7085. Is this a good cabin and what exactly does he mean by an upgrade?

Thanks! :)

Usually the "A". "B" or "C" designates the location of the cabin with "A" being the best and usually midship is considered better. The price is higher usually for an "A". I checked my cabin "Sticky" and no one has reported on that cabin nor any nearby yet so no information there.

Location, location, location. 2B staterooms are either closer to the center of the ship and on a higher deck. We've been in similar located cabins and the only difference is how close they are to the elevator.

M class ships have some great 2C cabins on deck 6, especially the most forward 2C's (first 8 on port and starboard) called the sweet 16. The only blocked view from cabins on 6 would be straight down because of lifeboats on 5. 2B cabins on M class ships are on 7. As mentioned, cruise lines think that higher decks are more popular so they charge more for cabins on higher decks, even inside cabins. Most of the suites on M class ships are on 6, don't ask me why.:confused: 7085 is a portside cabin with a standard veranda about midway between the forward elevators and the panoramic elevators. Should be relatively quiet with little foot traffic past the door.

Most of those desirable cabins have been recategorized for the 2010-2011 cruise year - and moved up a category.
