Everyone is right on track!! the only time I have received a true upgrade is when I have paid for it at the pier. It is a small charge in relation to the TA booking it. I went from an outside deck 2 on RAdience to JS
aft deck 10 for 550. The price from the TA 3 month prior was 3350.00 for that room. I paid 1030 or the OV and paid the 550 at the pier. that got me to 1530 for a JS
aft on the Radience. It was a better room though I did pay for it. Yet it was 50% of the dicounted fair 3 months prior. Just remember I would have been stuck on Deck 2 if no other deal was avail.
