Default The Upgrade Fairy DIDN'T visit :-(

I'm so sad! Checked the Princess web site today, and we got our cabin assignment for the CruiseMates Turkey Day Cruise... and (with tears rolling down my cheeks) no upgrade!

This is our 4th cruise with Princess, all booked with guarantees, and I'd heard they were the best about giving upgrades, but they keep missing me.. not even a 1 cat upgrade from Princess <G>

Fortunately I had booked a minimum category I'll be happy with, so really nothing lost. Though I would have made really good use of the Royal Suite.

That's sad, Kuki... but Sue is right, at least you're going on a cruise! And remember, the more you cruise, the greater the chance that you will be upgraded in the future! Just keep trying, your time will come!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Next summeer's Radisson cruise should make up for all the upgrades you've never gotten. I've sailed Princess somewhere around 15 times and have only eveer gotten one upgrade, back on either Pacific or Island Princess where we were upgraded from a standard to a deluxe outside cabin. So the Radisson cruise will be my treat too.

Kuki....sorry the upgrade fairy didn't make it to your place. Maybe she is still looking for mine! I checked yesterday and still no cabin assignment for me.....keeping my fingers crossed. But like you said, I booked the minimum I would be happy with...so anything with a balcony will suit me.

Kuki, at least you can check if the upgrade fairy will visit you. From this side of the pond we don't have the official carnival numbers to check by if you book it through a TA. I surely would like to know if we get an upgrade

Princess likes me better than you--lol We did get a small upgrade on our Sea Princess cruise this Jan--- holding my breath that maybe just maybe we will get on for our Sun Princess next month---but the price was soooooo good I cant complain- especially since my husband is joining me------
Cheers

Did get a great upgrade from Carnival-- to a suite---- too bad it was just a 4 day cruise- it was on part of the Spirits inagural up to Vancouver-- best part was we had HeatherBC as our personal tour guide-- she's the greatest !
