Mommylou46: we booked our upcoming Alaskan cruise last December and requested the highest level balcony room. We had the opportunity to choose our stateroom, so we did. My guess is that since we,ve been assigned the room, we won't be upgraded. Hmmm...we might try booking a category next time and see what happens.
