Default "free upgrade" good or bad?

We booked a garantie 8B on the Destiny and received a free upgrade to a 8D on the Lido Deck.Between the Rotunda and the elevators .I'm wondering if I really
made out? I have a feeling, instead of being upgraded I got downgraded. Any advice?

Patricia sometimes that is the case. Obviously you have the deck plan and can see where the cabin number is located. That is one of the drawbacks of booking and paying for a lower category guarantee. I am doing a similar thing next March and like you, hope to gain a better cabin, but it cannot be assured. If you had been assigned a cabin number originally in that cat. 8B, then you could refuse the "upgrade" and ask to remain in your chosen cabin. But that does not sound like your case. Go and sail the seas and have a wonderful cruise.
Bon Voyage

It is the exact same room on a higher floor.
