Default Got an upgrade
I had gotten a up grade from the rivera deck to panorama deck eight a little closer to the pool and food. It a whole lot better than being all the way down stairs. It costed another $40.00 ,could not beat that deal,cruiseing in 31 day. before I was rushing the days and now they are coming fast.

I don't know who you booked your cruise through, but normally true Carnival upgrades are complimentary. Unless you're saying you upgraded yourself. It still sounds like a good deal though to move up that many decks.

When cruising in the Caribbean I usually try to get close to the pool deck too. I like to be in the position of running up one or two flights of stairs and being there. I'm not a huge fan of elevators.

$40 for that change IS a good deal. Did they call you and offer it to you or did you just decide to change? If you book a Guarantee cabin (which basically means you pay the lowest price for a category of cabin an then Carnival assigns a cabin that is available) then sometimes you can get a free upgrade to a better cabin. But if they call you and offer you an "upgrade" for a price, then its truly an up-sell call despite the fact they call it an upgrade... Regardless of how you got it, it is still a good deal. I would pay $40 to be on Lido versus Riviera wouldn't even have to think about it.

Hope you enjoy your cruise! 40 days will fly by. I remember when you first came on here asking about cruising and wanting help choosing one.. now its almost here....

That's good news, Todd Hamm! You're countdown is really close. The bad part is, the cruise flies by. The good part is, you have fun planning the next one

Good for you Todd! Did you get an up-sell call? I don't blame you, I like being close to the Lido deck too.
