I am a first time cruiser (in July) but I will give you the benefit of my experience in booking the cruise...

I originally booked an outside cabin with a private balcony. I booked with NCL directly. The NCL agent gave me my cabin number and everything when I booked. About a week after booking the cruise, I was looking online and saw on the NCL website that they were offering free upgrades from an oceanview windown room to a balcony room. So I called my NCL agent back and asked if I could change my booking so that I could get the free upgrade instead of paying for the balcony room. He switched my booking and gave me the upgrade.

So keep looking online and if they offer upgrades online, call your T/A and see if they apply!!

CHENCE, if you copy the "bb" code for your ticker, it will work.

Dear Lil_princess975,

Have sailed several times in NCL. Have stayed in various accommodations. I do remember once booking an inside on a lower deck and being upgraded to identical cabin on a higher deck. Only two in cabin however. When only two NCL has more flexibility. When upgrades do happen, it is normally for an inside to an outside or a outside obstructed to an oceanview unobstructed. End to middle type of thing. If you are expecting to be upgraded from an inside cabin for 4 to a suite with a balcony, you are dreaming (sorry about that). NCL is not in the business of fulfilling dreams when so many people pay for their "perfect" cabin. Just my thoughts on the whole upgrade thing. Four people will be tight in a NCL cabin. NCL may have some family cabins which are larger. Have you tried asking the price of those. Sometimes it is better in my opinion to pay a little more for the convenience and get really what you want. A vacation is a vacation and sometimes worth the extra cost for peace of mind. Maybe all will work out fine and you will be one of the lucky ones to get moved to something special but don't count on it. Cheers.
