Hello. My husband and I are going to cruise on Carnival soon, and called our travel agent today looking for a complementary upgrade since we're assuming cabins won't be full. My travel agent recommended talking with the cruise staff when we board ship to see what they can do. Have any of you done this? If so, what was your experience? Thanks.
HEY TAMMY, LET YOUR TRAVEL AGENT BOOK THE ROOM YOU WANT. OUTSIDE VS. INSIDE. I PERSONALLY PREFER THE OUTSIDE. THEN WHEN YOU GET ON BOARD, GO TO THE INFORMATION DESK ASAP. THEN ASK IF THERE'S ANY UP GRADES AVAILABLE. IF SO, THEY WILL HELP YOU. BUT IF NOT, AT LEAST YOU'LL HAVE A GOOD ROOM TO START WITH. HAPPY CRUISING.....
Best bet for an upgrade is one you get yourself and pay for, you should always get a cabin you are happy with, and if you get a comp. upgrade, all the better.
Here is a link explaining about upgrades:
Ed, I booked directly through carnival. how can i watch for the response of the cabins being booked? When did you find out about your upgrade? I think it was your previous hint that helped me go from a 6a to a 8a for 100.00 each.

1-) Select your itinerary from Carnival.com
2-) Just see the pattern on how Cabins are filling up.
Example, on my trip no one was booking the balconies and I was in
6C with 6D being full. 6C with upgrade option if available got me on CAT 12.
I call that luck and not a pure science.
3-) I found out about my upgrade on the day of departure.
