Holland America uses letters to denote the type of cabins. Interior cabins start with the letter I to N with I being the more desired location. Oceanview cabins start with the letter C to H with C being the more desired location. Verandah cabins start with the letter V followed by the letter A to H with A being the more desired location. Vista cabins start with the letter A or B with A being the more desired type of Verandah caibn. This may be followed by another letter A to P with A being the more desired location. Suites start with the letter S followed by the letter A to Z with A being the more desired location and/or suite type.
The only exception to the above is if the second letter is Q. That stands for spa and a more desired cabin because of its perks. There are also a couple unique codes. OO stands for a single oceanview cabin (sleeps one). FA or FB are family oceanview cabins with FA being more desired.
