Default Upgrading

Well, for one thing, if you upgrade from a JS to a GS, you will get access to the Concierge Lounge, if the ship you are on has one. They have these lounges on all Radiance, Voyager, and Freedom class ships. If you enjoy a cocktail in the evening, they would be complimentary from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.

I wouldn't count on being able to upgrade at the port. You're better off to use your TA. Upgrades at the ship are few and far between.

In my opinion, unless you can get a VERY sweet deal on the upgrade, it is not worth it. As another post stated, the biggest advantage is being able to use the concierge lounge and get a free cocktail in the evening. They will also help with spa and specialty restaurant reservations. I like to be pampered, and have been in both rooms, and I no longer go for the GS. The JS is a great room - most have walk-in closets, plenty of storage space, and are quite roomy.

Upgrading to a larger suite depends on why you want to do it? Are you celebrating something special, or perhaps you like the extra room. I was in a junior suite last year and it was plenty of room. The newer ships have a little more square footage than the older ships. Most ships go out of port almost sold out, so the chances of upgrading at port may not work, and if you are a premium member with Royal Caribbean, then you get first crack at upgrading.
