Default When can I ask for a free upgrade ?

I have paid for a Guarantee OV stateroom for my July '07 cruise.
I have already receive my documents. It says:Cabin:Guaranteed Category OV TBA.
I'm wondering when I can ask for a free upgrade,now or at checking in ?

Well, you don't ordinarily ask for the free upgrade. If you already have your documents, and they say "guaranteed OV", then your cabin will probably be announced when you get to the port. (when you drop off your checked luggage with the porter, he will have a list of cabins that haven't been assigned on the documents) Chances of a free upgrade are pretty good,,,but don't expect to be given a balcony or suite. The upgrade, if granted, will probably be just a move up a few decks from the lowest ocean view. Bottom line,,,don't worry about the free upgrade. If you get it, it's great, but if you don't, then you got exactly what you agreed to, and paid for.

Have a great cruise,

Ken

Like skymaster said, you don't specifically ask for one but by booking as you did they will upgrade you if possible.
Since you have your docs the cruise must be close. Have fun...

I agree not to expect a balcony or suite, but it can happen. On my January Carnival Legend cruise, I booked an OV TBA and got a balcony cabin.

Enjoy your cruise.
