Carnival uses a two digit code for its stateroom categories. The first letter represents the type of cabin. 1=Small Interior, 4=Interior, 6=Oceanview, 7=Cove Balcony, 8=Balcony, 9=Premium Balcony. The second letter represents the desired location with A being the least desirable.
As an example a 4J (Interior cabin) is in a more desirable location than a 4A (Interior cabin).
You can expect between 2124 to 2549 passengers on a typical sailing. This means that at the higher number (usually peak and holiday sailings) Carnival Spirit has a space ratio of 33.7 . (A space ratio less than 33 means that you may find the ship crowded in areas. A space ratio greater than 39 means that there should be plenty of space for each passenger.) When this ship isn't sailing at capacity the space ratio can be as good as 40.5.
The Carnival Spirit has 961 crew members on board. There are 3 passengers for every crew member on board. There are self serve laudromats on this ship.
