Default Doctors & Upgrades

Good morning Pen,

Yes the doctors will charge for everything that they provide, and it is expensive as they expect all bills to be picked up by your insurance. When you come to book your insurance, it is always worth considering paying a few pounds more to cover/waive any excess so that you know you will have nothing to pay.

It is very very unlikely that you will be able to obtain any sort of upgrade once you are on the ship, as they are nearly always sold out. What I would advise is that you check that your travel agent has put you on the upgrade list. Some of these will come up & you will be offered a reduce rate upgrade, others with small upgrades are often free, but with the free ones you rarely get to choose exactly which stateroom you want, you would simply be told that you can be upgrades from say a B4 to B1.

Speak later,
