Default Does it ever happen?

Does it ever happen that you get to the port to board your ship, and upon check in you find you have been upgraded? Or is it all said and done once you receive documents?

Yes, we had it happen once. Moved from inside to outside, but it was a last minute booking and I think they just put us anywhere available to fill up the ship. We've never tried upgrading once on board so not sure how succesful that might be.

I've never had it happen,,,and we cruise A LOT! I've been upgraded many, many times, but when the docs arrive, they have the cabin number on them, and that's pretty much it. I've noticed that lately, the ships are at capacity, so even if you wanted to pay for an upgrade after arrival, you'd be out of luck. FULL SHIP! I'm sure the "upgrade upon arrival" does happen, but I have to believe it's extremely rare.

Have a great cruise,

Ken

Thanks. I was just wondering if there's ever that sweet little surprise in the terminal. Seems possible, and highly unlikely.

Yes, sometimes, it does happen, but like you said, highly unlikely.

We sometimes book last minute guaranteed cabin. We then don't know our cabin until we get to the ship. Porters have to look us up to know where to send the luggage. But, once a cabin assignment is given, not likely to change.
