Default Carnival Upgrades & Shipboard Credits???

Ok you CruiseMates help us out here. We have been reading these cruise boards for several month now and keep seeing where people get upgrades and shipboard credits.

We are first time cruise and I earn this trip from work and they booked us direct with Carnival in Cat. 11., now I know that all the upgrade we could possible get is bumped to Cat. 12. , don't get me wrong we are very-very excited with Cat.11., and very greatful that I earn this cruise as well.

We don't mean to be asking for more that we deserve or want, but if the prices have dropped from what my company paid, then wouldn't it be ok to ask Carnival.

But I guess our question is where and how do you all find out if your price of your cruise has gone down?, and since we have Assigned Cat. 11 we most likely will not be able to go to CAT 12, so how would we approach Carnival for a Shipboard Credit ?

We have already paid in full a couple of week ago.
I hope what I have written makes sense.

Thanks in advance for in help or suggestions.

Hi Scotts,
You can start by calling the travel agent handling this booking and see if they can get you an upgrade or if not at least a shipboard credit. It never hurts to ask, good luck.

It doesn't hurt to ask however since you have paid in full do not expect anything and be very grateful should you get something. This happened to me and Carnival gave me nothing and I am a past cruiser with them.

Ask anyway. We'd paid in full and were 30 days from sailing when we got upgraded from an 8F to a 9A. The price had dropped $400 pp from what we had paid. Icruise handled our reservation and we asked and got upgraded.
