Default Upgrades.. When and Who??

If I am in search of an upgrade when it is time to sail, who and when do I ask if there is anything available and how much it would cost me?

I think you can ask the desk agent but if you want to know what the price would be to upgrade beforehand ask your TA.

Silly question but why would an upgrade cost so much if there is an empty cabin and someone willing to fill it?

> I have asked about upgrades and even though one was available the cost difference was from the cost I paid to the brochure price of the upgraded cabin.

If lines didn't have such a policy, people could book lower category staterooms, and bargain-hunt for upgrades after sailing. The same strategy would apply no matter what the category. Premium accommodations would sell for less and inexpensive cabins would go empty. Ships would lose revenue across the board.
