Like Trip, I think they first move the guarantee people up, then they offer upgrades to other people. How they make that decision is the Upgrade Fairy's secret . Some of us book the area we want and don't want to be "upgraded". For instance, I want to be between two passenger decks, near (but not too near) the elevators and near the laundry room.

We were offered an Upsell once, which we took. It was from a balcony to an Owner's Suite on NCL. I can't remember how much it cost, but I know it was a lot less than the original fare. I don't know how they decide to offer those, either .

Gail, I've wondered if "loyalty" reduces your chances of an upgrade? After all, you've already proved you're going to sail with Carnival!
