Welcome to cruise-chat.

My agent gets the price drop for me. I am not interested in upgrades because they are usually meaningless changes to a similar cabin but with a different category identifier.

Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

I have gotten 3 OBC's so far for my cruise. I could have been "up-decked" in conjunction as well, but I like the cabin I have.

Dwayne,

Finally, the term I was searching for! "Up-decked"! That is a perfect description for most "upgrades".

We are in a balcony unit on deck 8. Is this a pretty good unit?

Working with Hotwire and I have asked and nothing has been given. My friend booked with Carnival and she has gotten two price reductions, same cruise.

Hi I love Lucy, welcome to Cruise-Chat. I doubt you will get anything from Hotwire. All the more reason to have a good travel agent that is a cruise specialist. A good travel agent works for you, not the owners of the internet site. I'm sure you received a decent price, but a good travel agent is worth their weight in gold. Best wishes on your upcoming cruise, and once again, welcome aboard!
