I know that when I first began researching on Disney Cruise Line I bought a Passporter's guide. It really was informative and I have bought one since our first cruise as they are constanty updating it. Someone could probably explain the room catagories better than I but off the top of my head the letters (T and V) refer to Conciere service. Hope this helps and have fun!

Too many questions, I'm getting overwhelmed, in a fun Disney way
Almost all staterooms sleep four. This is really a question of budget, whether you want an interior, exterior view (porthole) or verandah (little porch, fresh air!) Or for even more, concierge.

Which ship were you interested in and what level of budget?
I've enjoyed an 11c interior on the classic ships and all the way up. I'd also say length of cruise often influences my selection...if it's your first cruise and a three-four nighter, you won't be spending hardly any time in your room, more than likely. So I'd be more likely to save on the room and use the extra to book spa treatments, excursions, etc. If it's a seven night, you stand a really good chance of spending some time hanging out in the room, enjoying room service coffee on your verandah, etc. Which makes the bigger rooms more worth it, to me.

Letters often refer to the position along the ship. Conventional wisdom says that lower down at midship has less motion so if you are prone to seasicknesss (most aren't) you may be less ill in those rooms. However conventional wisdom also says seasickness clears up faster when exposed to open air and a view of the horizon (and green apples, and ginger, but that's another question entirely).
So either the lowest category lowest deck midship or a verandah midship.

These rooms also can be in a more "busy" section of the ship. Which sometimes translates to noise from passersby. If you're on the extreme ends of the ship, this is somewhat of a rarer occurrence.

However near the stairs, you are highly convenient to the elevators/access to the other floors...

It's kind of clear as mud, right?

All in all, despite everything I've just said, you're going to have a lovely trip!

Individual room reports are available here:

Or if you have questions about favorite rooms people have had on certain ships...please ask! I am trying to be helpful, but it's a rather complicated subject.

Which itinerary were you looking at? I usually work forwards from itinerary/ship then look at rooms.


Nice Easy chart explaining all of what the above posts made seem very complicated (sorry!) but is kind of really simple.
