Hi-thanks to those who answered my "cruise newbie" questions. I am about to book a cruise on the Spirit out of NYC. I hope to specify which cabin and deck I want. Will I be guaranteed of this cabin. esp. if I state "no changes or upgrades without asking". thanks
Yes, before you book, your travel agent should give you a list of available cabins in the catagory you want, take a look at the deck plans, and choose the cabin you want. Unless you do a guarantee cabin catagory, that will be your cabin.
You should have your agent make the booking as "No upgrade". Cruise lines have recently done upgrades (which often aren't that great) for people with assigned cabins. It doesn't happen too often but it does.
