We were just on Star Princess to Antarctica and were upgraded at no extra cost from mini-suite to suite. I was upset at first when I found out the suite was at the back of the ship, but when we opened the door to our suite, we just went "wow"!!! We had always had balconies before and were excited about having a mini-suite, but this was beyond belief. Incredible amount of room and we were treated like royalty. Fresh flowers, tub with jets, walk-in shower, chocolate covered strawberries, free champagne, free laundry, and on and on. We were in the St. Thomas suite and it was beautiful and quiet. Don't know why we were so lucky. Hope you enjoy your cruise as much as we did.
