Default Upgrade Fairy on Cruise Day!

Just received a telephone call from Carnival.... upgrading us on the day of our sailing... TODAY.... to a balcony on the panorama deck. Originally, we had an inside on the main deck, then upgraded to an ocean view on the panorama deck to the balcony now. All at no charge! Life is great.

Congrats Michael,

An upgrade is better than an upswell!

Way to go.... Enjoy!

Just a question, I'd you book through Carnival? I hear people say they received "the call" but we never have and I wonder if its because we book with an TA.

Robin, I book through the carnival website. A representative will call us, at home, when an opportunity to upgrade becomes available. Sometimes it is at a small cost, sometimes it is absolutely free. I have used TAs in the past but the prices are the same as Carnival's website prices. A TA can be your advocate if needed and give you freebies from their own pocket but I still go with my own sense of knowledge and book myself.
