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....
