Kythira ferry question

It looks like there are various types of seats/pricing for the SeaJets Sporades Star ferry (Kythira to Gythio), ranging from Deck seating (9 euros) to "Numeric" (13 euros), "Saloni A Class" (16 euros) and Platinum (26 euros).

I will probably do Deck seating, but am curious if anyone can explain the difference seating types/pros and cons for this ferry.

Thank you!

As you know I only took the Triton ferry from/to Kythira, but often took Blue Star ferries for other trips.
Deck seatings are good for a 2.5 hour trip especially as you will probably spend most of your time from the deck, looking at the landscape. You will have access to most parts of the ferry with its inside economy lounges, and its bars/restaurants.

Tickets in more expensive lounges are generally quieter with upgraded seats. It could be an option to consider for a trip of more than 6 hours to Piraeus, but for this short journey I don't see the point.

Watch this video, it shows most of the parts of the ferry you can go to with a Deck ticket
