After reading several posts regarding unexpected upgrades I was wondering what are the chances of receiving an upgrade? We booked our cruise on the Mercury (Sept. 17-Trans-Canal) in late January. Does anyone know how they decide on who they will upgrade. Just wondering-and maybe a little hopeful.
My husband and I received an upgrade on Century (from category 12 inside to category 5 outside) that we are very happy about. We had booked the cruise on a guarantee ($599pp including port charges and fees) and got lucky. I think the free upgrades are usually given to people who book a guarantee or run of the ship. I'm really not certain how the upgrades are done though. I just wanted to give you a little hope because we were very excited about our upgrade. Good luck!!!!
You can always hope, but a lot depends on how full the sailing is at the time of the cruise. We just tried doing a catagory guarantee and hoped to get an upgrade, but no, it just didn't happen. So, don't count on it and if you get one,
