I just found out today that the cruise I booked through the HAL represetnative, not a TA, would not be considered for an upgrade. Why we ask, because when I booked, I selected a cabin style and number and the upgrade option had been turned off of my reservation.
If upgrades where offered, I wouldn't have been considered. I have since changed my reservation to a guaranteed VB
cabin. Just like TrvlPro said, I'm now guaranteed a VB
cabin or possible a visit from the upgrade fairies.
I hope you had a great time in Alaska! I can't wait for August.
