Something relatively new for people with specific cabins booked is the "Upsell". I know NCL and Carnival do this quite often.

Take care,

True for those companies. And Princess is very good at upgrading from a guarantee however they usually only upgrade from same to same just better location.

RCL and Celebrity do not call to upsell. They will upgrade at their cost - not that it happens a whole lot. It does seem to happen more on the Monsters of the Sea though.
