Default upgrades

i booked the golden princess for march 2 2002. When my TA was on the phone w/ princess, they asked if i would like a complementary upgrade. What would happen if i didn;t want to? the cabin that we picked is fine for us. I hope it will not cause any problems!

Hi Cole,
Did you by chance get the new cabin number, then you can tell if you will like it better than the one you picked? Hopefully it will be a better cabin, good luck, can't see how you can so no to a comp upgrade, way to go!

When your TA Chats with Princess if you dont want to be moved to another cabin then your agent tells Princess NO Upgrades please. Not all upgrades are good.

Don't accept an upgrade without knowing the exact location of the cabin. I had a situation where they offered a different cabin and it was not a better move. I just told them, no thank you, I like the cabin I have now.

cole,

An "upgrade" that's really a downgrade is extremely rare on Princess. If offered an upgrade, just say "Thank you!" and don't worry about it.

Norm.

Norm,
You seem to know Princess quite well so I would like your opinion on something. I booked a Cat BE GTY on the Grand May 27th. Got my Doc's today and guess what....still no cabin assignment. Checked availability thru Uniglobe and looks like it is full. Where do you think that I will end up ?

You should end up with a balcony cabin! You may not get your assignment until just before you sail. Keep checking on the Princess site with yoru booking number.

We are also on the May 27th sailing and are booked for a FF cabin
and have our cabin assignment. Our agent, a large cruise agency (online),
did request an upgrade if available, but so far no luck. Anybody out there
think we have a chance? Would love some opinions.
Thanks!

I find if you travel as one room, you stand a chance of an upgrade -- if you are in a group, they might not give an upgrade because others in the group will expect an upgrade tooooo.

Other thoughts.

Default Still No Cabin Assignment

11 days to go and still no cabin assignment. I check the Princess site every day. The ship is full for our sailing on May 27th so this could be interesting. We have booked a Gty Cat BE which is a balcony cabin on the Emerald deck. I am getting very excited!
