Hmmm.. depends on what you were upgraded from? Mr October is correct on the elevator thing. Most people don't want to be near the elevators because they think there will be noise, but I don't find that to be the case. I would rather have the convienence of the short walk.
Did you book a gaurantee cateogry cabin or did you pick a cabin and pay that price? Because if they "upgraded" you from a cabin choice, I would question it. (Call themn up and ask them to put you back in midship.. claim you don't like the movement near the bow and that is why you picked a midship cabin.)
