I hear of people often getting upgrades. How does this happen. I have cruised only twice before and in oceanview rooms, but would love to get a middle range deck sometime....how can I try for an upgrade? We always book 6 months or more in advance, thought that might be the problem Do they give the best rooms to the last people booking?
Thanks in advance
Hi Jo Ann,
A few times we've booked a "guarantee" cabin in hopes for an upgrade. When doing this though, you need to book the least catagory cabin you'd want, in case thats what you get. Always talk to your travel agent and see if you can book that way, unless you want a specific cabin, then book it that way.
Here is a link to an article that explains booking a "guarantee" catagory cabin:
Jo Ann... you basic premise is wrong... the "best location" varies from ship to ship and is not always a "middle range deck" (whatever that is). As an example, the most expensive suites on the Millennium class vessels are aft... with the best of the best, the Penthouse suites, being at the stern. Your t/a can give you some good help with this. What is "good" on one ship may be far from good on another.
