Default The Upgrade Fairy has smiled!!!

Several of my friends and I are going on a cruise next month to celebrate my "Annual 39th Birthday" We booked catagory 1A - (the cheap seats) -because it didn't matter to the girls if we had bunks or not. We were going to party!

Today I got a phone call from my Carnival PVP asking if I'd be interested in upgrading for a small fee? How small of a fee I ask. $100.00 per CABIN he says. What???? So we have upgraded from a Catagory 1A to a 6D for $100.00 per CABIN. I thought that was a pretty good deal, and now no one ( Kathy ) will have to flip a coin to see who sleeps on the top "BUNK"

Scurvy.
I would love it if y'all came on this one too. It's not too late ....
I've already paid deposit for the Bar Hop bus tour, they said we could add people on that day .... and I will probably need the support group about 1/2 way through the day. But I think I am sworn off parasailing for good. (darn tequila 8) )

It's not too late

that's great. We booked the Liberty for April in an 8A...and I see the 8A are all sold out now....we have a QUAD cabin and I am hoping that we will be asked to move up....even though we did not book a guarantee...we picked our cabin number.

Don't be too sure,,,It's all in the luck of the draw, and I personally don't think your status ie: how many cruises with Carnival you've taken, has a lot to do with it. As a matter of fact, I used to get upgraded almost every cruise, and now that we're at 23 Carnival cruises, we rarely get upgraded? Hang in there,,,you stand as good a chance with the upgrade "fairy" as any of us.

This is the first time that Carnival has "called" me and offered an upgrade for purchase. A very nice surprise! I have been upgraded before on a few occasions by booking a "guarantee" usually a catagory or 2, but this is from a 1A to a 6D A good deal! Sometimes the upgrade fairy smiles .... and sometimes not!

What is the advantage of paying for an upgrade?
Could you have booked the upgrade to begin with
cheaper?

I thought upgrades were just given, not sold?

I wouldn't know never had either happen.

I like to pick a particular cabin for lots of reasons and wouldn't
want an upgrade unless it was free to a suite or
an inside to an outside ect..

The advantage is that we upgraded from a 1A to a 6D for only $100.00 per CABIN. Booking that cabin initially would have been $160.00 per PERSON more. ($320.0 per cabin more)
