It's offered by HAL and you can't ask for it - it's the luck of the draw & the mysteries of the "Upgrade Fairy". Often if you book a Guarantee you will be upgraded; sometimes if you book a specific cabin they will offer you a "paid" upgrade through your travel agent.
Last year we were offered, through our TA, a paid upgrade from a Deluxe Suite to the Penthouse for almost the price we had paid for our Deluxe....that would have been double the price we paid. We said "no thank you, unless it's FREE".
Just sit back and wait and see if HAL comes through with something.
