Default Jan 21 Ecstasy cruise..or anyone who's cruised ecstasy

Hi who is going on this?

also, if we're past guests, is it normal not to get ANY TYPE of upgrade what so ever?

just curious cuz we were placed in the Riveria deck, which is the absolute bottom of the ship cabin wise. We were atleast hoping for a little higher maybe a deck or 3 higher.

also our documents do say which dinner seating were at, i may be mistaken but i guess i thought our last cruise, dinner times were on docs??

thanks!

I had the next sailing on Ecstasy booked and finally cancelled. Assuming those who paid the least would be upgraded last my 1A guaratee didnt look good. Lots of 1As were still unsold. Were you monitoring what was available in your guarantee category?

I personally think the reason so many first timers get upgraded is they are not as up on prices and tend to pay more. Its not some plan by the cruiseline to hook in newbies, but as you know everyone has their own pet theory on upgrades.

sorry you dont sound too happy with your cabin assignment. If you are willing to pay the difference they will allow you to upgrade if your sailing has not sold out. Seems like the upgrade fairy went on vacation lately.

Liz;
We are on the same sailing as you. We booked a 1-A with mil. rate back in April. We still have a 1-A listed on our e-docs. The price we paid is so very low I doubt we will get any upgrades. That is OK as I realize you can't count on the upgrade fairy to visit. We will be happy with any cabin on the ship. As far as dinner seating times they try, but you won't find out for sure your time until you get your sail & sign card. Our docs show the time we requested, but from past experience I know you can't count on that for sure. It will be a blast no matter when and where we are on the ship.
Maybe we can get together on the ship.

we just wanted to know when our dinner seating was, one of my best friends is coming, but i dont think either of us are sure we want to be arm pit and elbow with each other on this cruise as we talk every day, we want new experiences, so neither is beating each other down for dinner time, excursions etc, think its kinda unspoken....wierd, being best friends, neither of us knew the other was booking THIS PARTICULAIR cruise....course she is in a penthouse suite and were in the basement!


i'd like to meet new people or have quiet experiences with family.

On Carnival you don't get your dining assignment until you get your sail and sign card.

You likely should have requested a time when you booked, but you won't know if your request was fulfilled until you get there.
