The only cabin they do "exclude" in writing in the program is the Royal Suite, which I can understand.
It's not so much that they have established these teirs inside D+, I just think they need to be transparent to the members on this.
They didn't used to be secret - before they changed the system this year, they were clear that the D+ upgrade was only for sailing of 7+nights. I don't recall whether the upgrades on 3/4 nights at 75 credits was on the website.
And when you look at the website now, they are making C&A upgrades (as opposed to revenue upgrades) scarcer than hens' teeth. It seems that the revenue department does virtually all of the upgrading now, and if posts on the dark side are to be believed, many go to first time cruisers.
