Default Quick question

I just got an e-mail from our TA with an offer from HAL to upgrade from an SY to an SA (Superior Veranda to Deluxe Veranda) for $249 pp. Is this a good deal or is it just the regular price differential? I know it would make us eligible for the Concierge Lounge and the TA says she can get us a starboard cabin which I understand is prime for Alaska, but we have to let her know within the next 4 hours. HELP!

What ship and when is the cruise? My suggestion is to go to travelocity and check the cost of the two rooms to know the difference. I hope that helps you.

Okay I was got to wondering so I ran a search for May 10, 2009 on Westerdam. The per person cost of the SY room was $1,749 and the per person cost of a SA room was $2,349 that is a $600 difference per person. Based on that I would say it's a great deal. Remember, I did run it for a certain date and your dates may create a different results. Hope that helps.

Well, we tried, but the only cabins that were available starboard were right next to the outside elevators so everyone going by overlooked the veranda. Not my idea of a good time..... so we decided to stick w/ our starboard superior.
