Congrats Mike

Yes it is very rare!

It is usually inside to a higher deck inside, or outside window to higher deck of the same. Not often is inside even upgraded to outside, and extremely rare for inside to be upgraded to a balcony.

This is indeed a great way to start a cruise, and look forward to the Doc Dance

HAGO,
IslandCruz

Holy Grail indeed! I owe my TA a nice bottle of wine! Well, I prob owe her more than that, but I gotta save up for the final bar tab...

Thanks everyone!

f-mattox - I finally found that pic you were talking about, and I completely agree that I don't want to be the first one to test out my theory - I'll let my gf do it first

Let me know what kind of wine you want... I have over 270 bottles in my cellar that I am giving away to family. I am trying to convert part of the wine cellar into a walk-in humidor.

No, I was joking about the walk-in humidor. I really am reducing my stockpile of wine. My wife and I used to buy it cases at a time but, upon inspection, I don't need that much. I am still keeping some but, I counted during lunch, I am still finding homes for about 242 bottles that range in age from 1988-present. Mostly cabs and merlots. I have a cold storage area where I keep mostly Conundrum (California table wine that is awesome with oysters and shellfish) and Far Niente (an exquisite Napa Valley chardonnay).

Of all the problems to have, a surplus of wine in your own cellar is certainly preferable haha.

Is this somehow job related, or is wine just a hobby of yours?

Good Dr. I will happily volunteer to adopt one of those bottles of wine for my next cruise. Am not picky, anything that goes with meat or fish

It would be a SUPER upgrade at dinner

If you are serious PM me and I will gladly send you the shipping cost.

Best regards,
Dwayne

When I cruised on the Glory, I was bumped up from an Inside Upper/Lower cabin to an Oceanview one on the 10th deck. I thought I couldn't do any better. But Mike the Kid, got one even luckier than that. Congratulations Mike! Have a great cruise!
