We booked this cruise "Military" rate, and I noticed that the price of the inside was a bit less than even the military rate I'd paid. I knew they probably wouldn't offer an OBC, (they certainly didn't have to) but I thought I'd bounce it off my EXCELLENT travel agent anyway. She called Carnival, and they agreed that since I'd booked military, and since the current rate was indeed considerably less, that they'd give me the upgrade to cat 6L instead. The fact that we're Milestone may have worked into their decision as well. We seem to get upgraded on the GREAT majority of our cruises. Usually just raised up a few decks, but we have, more than once, been assigned a balcony, when we booked, and paid for an inside.
