We leave in a week for twenty-five nights on Seven Seas Voyager; Sydney to Beijing. We have a Cat H guarantee; cheapest rate on ship. I was sort of hopeful for an upgrade but although upgraded many times; always to another deluxe suite; no real upgrade. Today, TA emailed to say that Regent was offering upgrades to Penthouse Suites (A or B) for just $750 per person. We jumped at it. $1500 over twenty-five nights is not that much money to experience a Penthouse Suite for first time.
I guess Regent figured out that they have a perishable commodity so might as well see how much money they could get for it.
