Default upgrade likely ?

I am booked for a cruise in March with a "Guaranty" level cabin. Does anyone know my chances for getting bumped up to a better cabin ? Is there anything I need to do to help my chances of being upgraded or just check with the ship when I get there ? thanks.

Were the upgrades assigned to you when you "checked in" at the ship or did you need to do anything prior to departure date ?
Thanks for the help.

I think the guarantee is the way to go. Then you KNOW you won't get anything less and we got a very good upgrade on the conquest. We booked a balcony guaranteed and were upgraded to a suite on the Empress Deck, room #7272. We booked about a month before the sail date and went through our travel agent. You won't know about the upgrade until you get there, at least we didn't. When we unloaded our lugggage they told us our room number. I think your chances are good for an upgrade but I am only speaking from our experience. It was our first cruise and we may have just gotten lucky.
There were six in our group and we all booked at the same time with the travel agent and we were all moved up with our rooms next door to one another.

It was also *really* fun to have a surprise when we got there! As I said earlier, we were upgraded from a 4A on Riviera Deck to 4D on Empress. It made the cruise even more exciting to not know until we arrived at the pier.

I am not horribly picky about a certain deck or cabin, so as far as I'm concerned, guaranty is the way to go.

Get a balcony and hope for a good upgrade.

I think I have a stupid question here but when we first booked our cruise last summmer we got a 4A, when our documents came in we were upgraded to a 4D. I called my travel agent and payed for an upgrade in level 6. We did not book an outside cabin though, is there any chance of being upgraded to one or did I just blow our opportunity?
