The cruise line seperates the different categories (Inside, Oceanview, Balcony) into subcategories. The only difference in the subcategories is usually location on the ship. The detail above shows subcategory color, category name, and subcategory name. For detailed information, mouse over a cabin on the deck plans and a pop up window will appear. You will find diagrams, pictures and information about that cabin category including square footage and features.

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.
