Default Another upgrade question??

Just wondering has anybody noticed??

I booked an IS Gty on Victory for May 1st. When I go to Carnival and look up "My Reservation" it has a picture of my cabin type (show IS cabin).

I read somewhere on here or on another un-named board that sometimes you are upgraded to and OV and if you are, the picture will change to a room with a window, Bal. (what ever you are upgraded to,etc), even when your reservation still says Gty.

Has anybody else noticed that their picture changed?

We are 67 days out and still don't know. I have tried every trick, including book modify and I get nothing but an error message.

I can't help it. I feel like it is Christmas and I am dying to know whats in the big package!

I have never heard of the picture changing......everytime I have been upgraded we didn't know the upgraded room till the actual cruise.

Also I was told that the upgraded on Carnival are based by how many cruises you have done with them.......

Yeah, Cruisegirl is right. When I booked this last one (IS Guar) the lady from Carnival told me I had a good chance of an upgrade because I have cruised numerous times and in a short period. I didn't ask about an upgrade she just told that to me. The more you cruise, the better your chances are for an upgrade. I also don't think it is common for them to upgrade a person to an oceanview room if they booked IS Guar. Not saying it's not possible but not common. If anyone has had that happen please post because I would like to know myself.

Actually, I did a survey here a few weeks ago and quite a few people stated that they got upgrades out side of their category. I will try to bump that back up...

Stacowgirl-
Since your cruise is only 8 days away (lucky girl) you surely must have your documents by now. Is there any indication of your room number on the documents? I've heard on this message board that you can find the room number in a long srting of numbers printed on the documents. Any clues there that would suggest an upgrade?

I really don't think it has anything to do with how many cruises you've taken, or how recent. I booked a guarantee ONCE only....never again....but won't go into that.

I had taken nine Carnival cruises before this one (in assigned cabins) and the cruise before this one was only 2 months before.....so, I was hoping for an upgrade by booking guarantee -NO upgrade. However, folks on the same sailing (tablemates I met) who have never cruised before got upgraded....!

So - there goes THAT theory!
