The odd thing is, using the neck airlock as a reference point, the secondary hull airlock takes up decks 18 and 19. I don't think there will ever be an accurate diagram of the decks on that monstrosity. The scaling is all messed up any way you look at it. At any rate, here's the pic:

Andrew Probert, the guy who designed the refit TMP Enterprise, originally intended to have the ship consist of at most 20 decks. Taking into account the fact that this new Enterprise is supposed to be bigger than the TMP refit (yet still quite a bit smaller than the Excelsior) then 22 decks is perfect.

You can read more into Probert's original ideas for the TMP Enterprise here:
