has anyone ever been upgraded from an ocean view to a suite?? i have been upgraded many times from an inside cabin to an outside cabin or from an outside cabin to another outside cabin, but on a higher deck. just curious..........
Yes, for our Honeymoon this past February we were upgraded from an Oceanview state room to a Cat 12 suite w/ balcony. It was fantastic! The only drawback is that my husband has only been on this one cruise so I think we'll have to start booking the suites for him to be satisfied...
Our next cruise is this Nov w/ Princess and we have booked what they call a Mini suite but we have been told by our TA that we will likely be upgraded to the larger suite as they hardly ever sell out.
Good luck and enjoy your cruise!

Jen, they're being upgraded on the fantasy class ships, which do not have categories 7 8 or 9, as they were designed before the ships that had large numbers of balconies The upgrades would go from 6D to cat.11 as the smallest one to a balcony

We didn't do anything special but Carnival did know it was our Honeymoon. We actually got our tickets less than a week before we left because we had to correct and name spelling on my husband's paperwork. The new cabin assignment wasn't even on this paperwork. When we got in line, they couldn't find our names so they researched it and found we had been upgraded at the last minute.
"3FOB" is right though, the Elation only has about 40 rooms with a balcony. They are all Cat 11 or 12 suites. The Cats go from Cat 8 then skip to Cat 11. So it may sound like it is 4 cats higher than our original room but it was really just 2.

Yes !! I am going on the Inspiration August 29, and I have been upgraded from an ocean view to a suite !! I am also on my honeymoon, so I dont know if that had anything to do with it. Have you been upgraded?
We booked at Cat. 11 on the Sensation and were upgraded to Cat 12 (Penthouse
Suite). We were very surprized since we didn't book a guarantee. We can't wait
to sit on the balony. Got our documents yesterday and it's official. YEAH!!!!!
I am sailing the Legend out of NYC on 9/20/04 for my honeymoon.
#1. If I booked through a TA should I call carnival and tell them it is my honeymoon and see if I can be upgraded?
#2. when should I get my doc?
#3 When I booked 6 months ago almost instantly I was given a room number #7227.
-has anyone been to this room on the Legend?
-is it in a good location? (seems good to me)
-does this mean probably WON'T be upgraded since I have a room number for so long in advance?
i booked through a TA and she asked if we were celebrating a special occassion so she knows it's our honeymoon. not sure if calling carnival will help or not. i have always booked a guarantee cabin which means you don't have a pre-assigned cabin, but by doing that you may possibly be upgraded. it's always sucked not knowing my cabin until i get there, but i've always been upgraded that way. i'm hoping i'll get upgraded to a suite though since it's my honeymoon. never had that kind of upgrade before.
i've always received my documents about 2 weeks before sailing, but i've heard some people getting them as much as a month before.
