However it does make your chances of being upgraded MUCH lower. Specific cabins are rarely upgraded.

Something relatively new for people with specific cabins booked is the "Upsell". I know NCL and Carnival do this quite often. They will call you with a "deal" to upgrade to a higher category for a price. Often these are decent rates and nice upgrades. Sometimes they aren't any better than the current pricing.

Take care,
