See great variety in accommodation aboard ship (8)

I believe the answer is:

steerage

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'accommodation aboard ship' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'see great variety' is the wordplay.
'variety' is an anagram indicator.
'see'+'great'='seegreat'
'seegreat' with letters rearranged gives 'STEERAGE'.

'in' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for steerage that I've seen before include "Cheap seats" , "Old word for cheapest passenger accommodation in ship" , "avoided by the "posh" set" , "Cheapest area on ship" , "Cheap part of ship" .)
