The last statement that cruise lines do not give rebates, is not accurate, at least with Princess. We sailed the Sun Princess in Alaska, August 2001. Found out 2 weeks before we left, that there was a special promo on for our location in Florida at the time. Rebate had to be sent back to travel agent, and we had a check for $950 waiting on our return. Fortunately, our travel agent is also a close friend, that would not try to keep for herself. As far as a previous post is concerned, upgrades do occur on Carnival between outside to balconies. That's also happened to us, as well as a balcony to mini-suite. Like I had said previously, depends on when you're traveling, and what's available. I personally think a lot depends on the travel agent as well as to how much they book with a particular cruise line.
