It seems we missed the opportunity. We emailed our ok to do the upgrade and our contact said the room was no longer available. We'll see if another opens up for us.

Aw shucks! Al.

I hope another opens up for you. What date are you going?

Hey Dwayne,

Beginning of October a couple of weeks after it returns from dry dock for the upgrades.

My wife has been trying to get me on a cruise for the last 10 years. I'm more a backpacking, camping, motorcyle touring person but now that we've made the decision to go I'm really looking forward to the new experience.

AL,

You will probably be hooked after the first one. I have been on the Fantasy twice and had a wonderful cruise both times. They have been adding and upgrading things all along with the Fantasy. With this last dry dock she should be looking like a new ship.

Hi there everyone. I am sailing Aug 16th on the inspiration. I got that call too. Luckily I grabbed it before it went away. I originally booked an inside cabin with an automatic four class upgrade to an OV due to a sale going on. I got a call the other day to upsell to a cat. 12 penthouse suite for $100 apiece. So I grabbed it!!!!! I am so excited. I know I was lucky to get the call, but this cruise is cheap for what we are getting.

A good friend of mine just got back from Fantasy and had one of the Penthouse Suites. (I never have understood why they call them that because they are on a middle deck) They loved it and he said he actually spent less money on this cruise because the cabin was so nice! Its a novel thing to do when upgrading saves money!

I like suites when I can afford it. We've always had a Cat 12 on the Holiday. We did find ourselves spending more time there last month. It was a nice respite from the crowd. I'd get a couple beers and some pizza and take it all back to the cabin and relax.
