Default Upgrade fairy still alive kinda...

David and I have been waiting patiently for our cabin assignment for our cruise leaving this coming Sunday on the Nieuw Amsterdam. We had booked a fully obstructed oceanview (now thatīs an oxymoron lol) category HH cabin.

Finally yesterday our cabin was assigned. We were upgraded to category D outside with no obstruction. It is not a fabulous upgrade but it will do nicely.

We cannot complain given our cruise fare was only $449 per person for seven days!

Yahoo. We are in Mexico City today and will be flying to Fort Lauderdale this afternoon. Weīll spend three nights with our good cruising buddies Terry and Phoebe in Port St Lucie and then we will sail off on Sunday! Canīt wait!

I just got an e-mail from my T.A. and Holland America offered us a 39 dollar p.p. upgrade to a balcony on a first come first served basis.

Sooooo I guess the upgrade fairy is in deed alive and working in the salea department.

I'm not sure if our response was fast enough but time will tell. I should hear back from my T.A. very soon!
