Question What is the difference between cabin categories

What is the difference between the Cabin Categories. For example, on the Dream, Deck 11 (Panorama) in a balcony stateroom, has a category 8F & 8P. The price difference is $70.00 per person. I was wondering if anyone knew what the difference was between all of the categories. It's on the same deck, are the rooms different? Any help is greatly appreciated.

The number in a cabin category is the cabin type and all are pretty much identical (4 is inside, 6 is oceanview, 8 is balcony, 9 is bigger balcony, 11 and 12 are suites). The letter, A, B, C, etc, is the location on the ship. Used to be all A's for example were on one deck, but now they've re-categorized so that the best cabins on any given deck are in the middle or true aft or corner and the next best category are way forward or way aft on the side, etc, etc.
