Default Free Upgrades?

Hi all -

After attending a ship board wedding for my best friend's daughter, my husband and I are looking into our first cruise.

Using the internet to get an idea of what's out there, I've seen a statement to the effect: "this catagory entitles you to a free upgrade" with either a "1" or "2" under the upgrades column when I've looked into the ocean view staterooms. Can someone tell what I'm looking at?

By the way, I've been going through and the questions and answer and I've found everything very informative .....and funny......

What you are finding is a way to get you to book with 1 catagory upgrade at time of booking. So, you will be basically paying for the lower catagory, but getting 1 higher. Keep looking though, you may even find better deals with some extras thrown in as well.

Good morning, Donna -

Thanks for the info - it will probably be a year before we actually go on the cruise since I've already booked a trip to Hawaii for this year. But I like to get all my ducks in a row, research everything, then put it aside for the future. I wasn't sure exactly what the "upgrade" was...kinda like what beats what in a poker game (ace high beats nothing, pair beats ace high, two pair beat one pair, etc, etc,etc) So what would be an upgrade from an ocean view stateroom? Different deck? Balcony? (hey, I can dream!)
