Default icruise has me in tears of JOY!!!!

I got my air tickets today, along with another set of cruise tickets with a different room number, room 6215.

I called Carnival to find out what was going on (didn't occur to me to look online and see what that new room # was), and was told I have been upgraded to a PENTHOUSE SUITE!!!! Category 12!

I'm now totally thrilled with them and don't feel like a # anymore!

This is going to be incredible. Their compensation for that hassle was more than I could ever have dreamed of! Don't tell them, but I would have been happy with 100 bucks or something. <grin>

Glad they came through for you! It seems that maybe one employee wasn't on top of thier game and when it was brought to someone elses attention they made sure you were treated right.

I have been walking on air all day long.

My FIRST cruise, in the BEST room on the ship.

Someone Emailed me and asked if I would use icruise again. Emphatically yes. That was above and beyond the call of duty. I was expecting nothing at the worst, a little money off at the best. But this is over a TWO THOUSAND dollar upgrade between the two of us. Incredible.

We're also now entitled to the Skipper's Club program, meaning we don't have to wait in any lines, including embarking. The press release I read said that it was just for year-round ports, but I called Carnival and they said no way, we don't have to wait for anything. Um, being new to cruising, what all DO you wait for?

Since I got the tickets today, this all happened before Cruisemates' Captain Paul Motter even got his Email off. (Thanks anyways Paul!)

So I think part of the latter delay was trying to pull off the upgrade. Of course they can't tell you they're trying, in case it doesn't work out.

I just can't say enough about this. I never, in my wildest dreams, expected them to do something this extravagant to resolve this.

And no need for them to send champagne, I sent it to myself! YEAH!

So, anyone else cruising 6/26 on the Spirit, Party in Denise's Room! It's the gigantic one (415 square foot!) with a lot of screaming inside!

Full trip report to follow I hope. Some of us don't get to travel in the Penthouse suite.
Happy Cruising

The only problem with all of this Denise is that you will be incredibly spoiled. Now nothing but the Penthouse will do! Good for you! Enjoy.

I am now officially incredibly spoiled.

And I don't mind one bit.

Actually, I found out that the room was great for parties with friends, but if not travelling in a group, all I need is any balcony available. That balcony was priceless, and we had a few parties on it. I wouldn't mind squeezing around a bed just to get to a balcony. We spent a lot of time there. We passed by the Seabourn Spirit, which had NO balconies, and almost cried for them. Of course, the weather happened to be sunny and wonderful, which helped. But I would have stood out there in long undies and a blanket or three just to see that view. It's pretty sheltered from the wind, unlike the Promenade deck.

Penthouse Suites on the Carnival Spirit don't get you any special service. No butlers or anything to REALLY spoil me for all else. Just more space for parties!

Denise the Spoiled
