Default Guaranteed category 1a carnival glory, possible upgrade??

We recently booked our once in a lifetime vacation through a travel agency, we originally were going to book a room with a balcony, but the agency advised us to book this guaranteed 1a room due to the amount of money we would save, we recently found out these rooms have bunk beds in them, we were very dissapointed and called the travel agent several times and emailed him a numerous amount of times also, when he finally contacted us he wrote "due to the large amount of bookings done by our company there is a chance you will be upgraded to a different room upon embarkation, we however can not guarantee this, we hope your vacation will be an experiance you never forget, blah blah, blah........has anyone ever booked such a room, and if so have you been upgraded?? Is this going to absolutely ruin our vacation?? any suggestions will help.

You will have a wonderful time even if you don't get a cabin upgrade. If you have your heart set on a balcony, I'd suggest you call your TA and pay for the upgrade. If you go with a good attitude and ready to have fun, you won't be in your cabin much anyway!

My family and I are getting ready for our first cruise. It will be our first vacation in ten years and we booked a guaranteed 6A cabin. That is a ocean view. There are five of us and we were told that we may get an upgrade but nothing is for sure. We said that it was the least type cabin we would be happy with so no matter what we have a good room. Then all my friends that have been on cruises said it does not matter because all you do is sleep in them anyway. So just have fun and I'll write again when we get back and let you know how many upgrades I saw people get. Have a great cruise.

Yes, I'm a "all you do is sleep in them" girl myself.....but.....don't you and your husband want to actually SLEEP together? I would call and upgrade to at least a 4A. that way you can still hope for an upgrade (remember to book a 4A guarantee), but don't feel like you're at summer camp!
