Is a guaranteed stateroom a good idea or should we pick the room we want.

If you have no specific requirements for the location of your room then a guarantee stateroom would be best because you may get a free upgrade. However if you need a specific floor or location on the ship (ie like the middle of the ship) then it's best that you select a room but then the possibilities of a free upgrade is extremely limited.

DYG is correct, if you have a preference as to where you would like your cabin, then of course select your cabin, if you go with a guarantee, the price is a little less expensive and you will at least get the catagory you paid for, but you can also get upgraded. The further out you purchase the guarantee cabin, the better chances for an upgrade. With Carnival, we usually do guarantee..example: last October we sailed on Fantasy, purchased 6A guarantee about 8 months prior to sailing...ended up on Empress deck midship starboard side. We are leaving on Triumph from Charleston on the 18th, we purchased 6A guarantee over a year ago, our cabin assignment is on the Spa deck catagory 6E. Its just a matter if you prefer a certain location, or if you want to take a chance and end up anywhere on the ship. Of course I have heard people have gotten some locations that they were not happy with, but we don't really care, we just want to be on the ship.

Yes, when we sailed on Glory in April, we paid for a 4A Guarateed. It was an inside cabin on bottom. When we got there, we were on the 8th deck in a balcony cabin. I was very thrilled. I'm hoping it happens again.

Cruise Specialist...what determines the possibility of an upgrade?

Hi Carol, I have considered going on Triumph from Charleston the last few years as is a short drive for me. It always seems over-priced. What kind of rate code are you booking, and how far out? Thanks, Island
