Ok, I need to qualify this statement by saying we have received some very nice upgrades "at the time of booking"...the best one being an upgrade from a 6A to a 6D on a Fantasy class ship.

Since we have a son with Autism, we have always had to select our cabins because he could not sleep in an Upper.

So we have never booked a GTY and have never gotten an upgrade after the booking.....


When we booked the Splendor, I wanted a Spa cabin but there were only 2 Spa Cabins left and were both interiors for our date. So I booked an Interior Spa.

This morning (as I was finishing my 5 miles on my threadmill) Carnival called with the news that we had been upgraded to a SPA BALCONY!!!

Now, I know it is only a "one" level move up...but I GET A BALCONY...which I never get (except Alaska) because hubby thinks they are a waste of money.


Thank you Upgrade Fairy!!!

PS: This also means either someone cancelled (since there were NO balconies available when I booked the cruise) OR someone who was a smoker had to be moved to a regular balcony because these are all nonsmoking cabins and balconies.

Either way...I got a balcony!!!
