The reason for taxes only is you've already paid for passenger 2, right? (even though there is none). I booked at senior rate, my friend isn't, it required only 1 to keep the rate. I've seen others look for roomshare and state they can get interline rates.
As for moving you from your lower deck to a higher priced deck. If rates drop, you can move to a normally higher price room for what you paid for a lower deck room. The room you got is likely an inside on a low deck, which is fine, I've had them going solo. It provided "my space" at a low rate, and I got to go to the same places the high priced cabins went.
