Default Did we make a mistake?

We are booked for out first ever cruise on the Zaandam to Alaska 5/10/03. We booked a Deluxe category S Suite. Would we have been better off booking a guarantee in a lower category and hoping for an upgrade?

From what I hear, verandah suites go very fast on the Alaska cruises. Not sure about a May booking but I suspect you did just fine.

We booked the Massdam for August in a mini-suite. It really sounds nice. Our only problem is that August is still many, many months away.

Even without an upgrade, I bet you will thoroughly enjoy your Zaandam suite.

Happy Sailing!!

Hi Sports Fan,

Thanks so much for your reply - we really did want the deluxe suite as our son (who will be 21) is also coming along & he will be in same cabin. (we hope anyway)

Have a grand time on your cruise.

no you did not make a mistake-- with a 3d adult in the cabin you will need all the room you can get-

how happy would you be if you booked a cheaper cabin and the upgrade didnt come through

hoping for an upgrade is good provided you will be happy in the cabin that you booked in case the upgrade isnt there-- and it usually isnt

we were on the z to alaska this past aug and loved it -- we got our first upgrade from a mini to a full and loved every moment of it -------it the upgrade didnt come through we would have been happy in the mini because that is where we usualy book

you willl love the z======our favoritte ship

You will never get an upgrade! You are better off getting a guaranteed cabin number. Pay attention to what side of ship you want to be on! I prefer up front away from engine room.

Krembles, we are on the starboard side, mid ship, Navigation Deck - I think it should be a good cabin.
