We found that when we purchased a Cat 8e on the Triumph that the Carnival TA automatically chose a room for us. We have found out that this lowers our chances on getting an upgrade(which would be a Cat 11 or 12). We have tried to get a hold of her and have found out that she's "out" for awhile ,no time when she will be back.
My wife spoke with another TA there and they said most likely Carnival would go ahead and honor us changing to a Cat 8e gaurentee instead of a specific room. We understand that we than can be put anywhere on the Panaroma deck and we are not even promised an upgrade. Is it best to stay with what looks like a pretty nice room or roll the dice for an upgrade? We have checked and there ar 6 /9a, 8,/Cat 11 and 6 /Cat 12 left on board for the March 5th sailing. We got a very nice rate for a return guest that has risen to 250.00 pp more than what we paid.So should we stay ,be happy and know what is coming our way, or... just be across from the elevator or a great suite. Thanks for your input and advice everyone and heres to getting out of the cold !
