Default just got upgrade!!

I looked online last night for my cruise and noticed the price had dropped pp about 100.00. My TA emailed me and said he not only got the credit for the 100.00pp, but upgraded us from a 8B to an 8G with an extended balcony!!! Only thing is, the room is on the back of the ship -- the rooms not looking to the side. On an alaska cruise...is this a good room to have? Please let me know..

acutally my husband and i prefer across the back of the ship because after you
leave port you get to see both sides at the same time. we have never been
disappointed. enjoy your cruise and dont let this be your last!!!!!

Oh Cheryl! These aft extended balconies are VERY popular! I heard folks talking about them and finally stuck my head in one on our last cruise. I *knew* I had to have one and we booked an 8E on the Miracle.

But to be upgraded to an extended? GREAT news! You'll have a wonderful cruise.

Upgrades! I'm beginning to think that's something that is made-up on these boards. I've been on 4 Carnival cruises in the last 2 years, and have yet to get an upgrade. Just to be on a cruise though..............

I agree, we have been on numerous cruises and found nicer cabins available at sailing, no FREE upgrades, but we could have paid more if desired, no such thing as a free upgrade that we have ever seen.

This was my 7th cruise - and my first upgrade. I had even booked a certain room number. My TA knew it was our 25th anniversary tho - perhaps that is why? I hear they don't have covers over the balconys but I opted to stay there and hope for the best -- so I can see both sides of the glaciers. This was also my first time I was able to get a credit due to a price drop!

Cherylroy, you must have an excellent TA. Mine doesn't call about price drops, email about sales, or ever have any good news. The one we had previous, called all the time and was always upbeat, until he graduated with his masters and moved on to greener pastures. You will enjoy the balcony, they're real nice, but sometimes overpriced.

Big Craig, on our "Holiday" cruise, 75% of the suites were vacant, but, no upgrades for the "bottom feeders." Go figure.

I actually checked the price myself -- and emailed my TA. He emailed me back the next day with the news of the credit and upgrade! First time in 7 cruises this has happened to me. Yep, he is awesome. Am I allowed to give his name?

Turkeyman you need to find another TA!

I don't claim to understand how the upgrade fairy works her magic, but we've been upgraded on both our Carnival cruises. One within the same category, from a 4A to a 4D - the other from an oceanview to a balcony!

We book very early and bug our TA to death....

Hate to tip you all off. There is no strong wind in the back of the ship on the balconies. Very pleasant while sailing!

I was just upgraded from a 4A to a 4D for the upcoming Glory B cruise. We will be on Empress deck I was noticing that the Penthouse suites are just across the hall. Now if any one that is in one of those decides he would much rather have a cozy inside cabin. I will sacrifice mine. We will be happy wherever we are, at least we will be on a cruise!!!

I can understand that! I actually don't know the difference between upgrading from a cat 4 A - 4 D, 8 B - 8G, etc except for the different levels of the boat. Or unless its from a window to a balcony, etc... This upgrade to the back (aft) cabin is going to be great though - especially on an alaska cruise so I can see both sides of the glaciers! I love to sleep with the door propped open to hear the waves -- so this will be great! Congrats on your upgrade too!
