The best guarentee, for a suite is to book one.... I have heard of people getting a suite upgrade though....those lucky ducks!

If you book an "all suite" ship, you will be guaranteed to get a suite.

I have not heard of a suite guarantee; if you have the money a suite is worth it, more space, more storage, larger balcony, and concierge service. these make it worthwhile for me.

Yes there is:

I have booked a suite guarantee on Carnival, Celebrity and NCL. On NCL it was a Cat AE guarantee and I was upgraded to an AC.

When I booked the suite guarantee on Carnival I was assigned an aft/starboard Cat 11. On Celebrity I received a Sky Suite.

They aren't on all sailings but they do have them. Just be prepared to get the lowest category suite. Also don't do a "mini-suite" guarantee and think you will get a full suite.

Take care,
Mike

Thanks to all for your input. Think I will continue to book the cabin we know we want.
