Last Jan. we went to the E.Carib on Explorer and had an international dinner table--4 from the US, a couple from England, and a couple from Canada. We keep in touch via e-mail. The man from Canada is a cruise TA and sent me this message yesterday:
"I had some extremely lucky clients leave for a 10 day cruise yesterday on the Dawn Princess. They are going from Vancouver to Hawaii, then around the islands. They had bought a balcony cabin in Cat. BD. I had requested a complimentary upgrade for them and they got moved up to a full suite, Cat. AA. There is over 500 sq. ft. of floor space. They have a butler and the whole works. They are a very nice couple and I don't know who was more thrilled--them or me. This sort of thing doesn't happen too often, but it is great when it does."
Wow!! Sounds like the upgrade fairy had some help!!
