I will be sailing on the Carnvial Triumph on November 2nd. The itinerary is the Western Caribbean and it is a seven day cruise. My friends are actually sailing with me and they are in a category 4 and they are paying 829 each for the room. I used an entertainment coupon to get 50 off of the room (to get it to the 939 dollars) and I also put a guarantee on the room which usually gets me at least a two category upgrade. Never to a balcony yet but If I keep sailing, it may eventually get me there. I have sailed all my cruises on Carnival so that helps a bit. Well, I hope that is some of the info you were looking for. Hope to hear from you.
