Default Best way to get an upgrade

We have a cruise on the Pride set for Mid-October and I was wondering what is the best way to get an upgrade. Is the best way to have your travel agent call and request an upgrade fo ryou or is there some other way???

Any input is appreciated

Buy a category you are willing to settle for, there are links on this site that explain how the upgrades work. We booked a balcony in the middle of the ship without an obstructed view. If I didnt book a specific room, I may or may not have been upgraded. But a least we are were we want to be. Search the forum and you will get a lot of answers on this subject....Good Luck

Jackie,
The best way to get an upgrade is through your travel agent. Word of caution....NEVER book a category you will not be satisfied with hoping for an upgrade. Only book a GTY cabin if you really don't care what part of the ship you are located in. When you book a GTY you may get a nice upgrade but you are only promised that you will get at least the category you booked and it may be in the worst location for that category. Your TA is your best bet for getting an upgrade. If you are a past passenger, or there is something there that the cruiseline wants to impress, you may have just a litle better chance. Bottom line, book only in a category you will be satisfied with.

Hi Jackie,
Yes, agree with the other posters, if you really want a better cabin, talk to your travel agent, sometimes its not that much to go up a catagory or 2, good luck.

Here is a link that explains upgrades:
