Default Unbelievable cabin upgrade!

My daughter and 3 of her college friends are sitting in the Venus suite (owner's suite) on the Norway right now after originally booking a category K cabin (B012)in the bottom of the ship! This is a long story but I know all of the cruise addicts out there will want all of the details. Last October my daughter asked me to help her figure out a trip that the girls could take "someplace tropical" for under $1,000 each. The first thing that I thought of was a cruise but one of the girls is not 21 and most of the lines would not let her go without a 25 year old. I called a local travel agent to see if they could go on any of the lines. She did some research and found out that they could go on Norwegian and she had found a deal on the Norway for $550/pp. The girls thought this sounded great so they took the offer.
A week before the final payment was due the travel agent called to say the girls could move up to a category G oceanview (A069)for $25 each. They took the upgrade and made their final payment.
Last week the travel agent called again - they were offering the girls an Owner's Suite but it would cost them $200 each to upgrade. They turned down the offer because they couldn't all come up with that much money on such short notice. The next day the travel agent called back - NCL had cut it to $100 each and the travel agent said she would give up her commission dropping it to $88 each. This time the girls took the offer.
My daughter called me this afternoon to let me know they were sitting in their suite drinking champagne!! I can't wait until they get back to hear all about it! I want to thank the travel agent - Theresa with Simply Cruises in Saint Louis, MO!
