Hi there,

Im heading off on Liberty of the Seas in two weeks time and have booked an inside cabin, Im now thinking that we probably wont get to go on a cruise for a long time again and would consider upgrading to a balcony room, would there be much difference in price? And should I go through my travel agent or go direct to Royal Caribbean?

thank you

Hello Corkgirl, If you upgrade you'll have to pay the difference from what you paid when you booked your inside cabin to what the current price of a balcony cabin is. Here are the current prices for the Oct 4th sailing on the Liberty:

Interior—$699 Outside—$1,049 Balcony—$1,580

You'll have to contact your travel agent to make any changes. If it were me, I'd put that money away for the next cruise. The price difference I see would almost pay for another cruise.

thats a huge difference, I wish I lived in Miami imagine getting the cruise for 699 dollars! Id be on a cruise two or three times a year! we have to pay the air fair which makes it super expensive but hopefully worth it all! thanks sonny

I know what you mean, the airfare is the worst part of the whole cruise experience. We live close enough where we could drive to Miami, but then after 8-10 hours in a car we would be wiped out by the time we got there. So we end up flying each time. We will be on the same cruise as you on Liberty! We are so excited we can't hardly wait, cause this will only be our second cruise ever. Have a great time!

btw did you ever get your cruise docs yet?

The airfare is the reason I do back to backs. Fly once—cruise twice.

Hi Weslin,

No unfortunately no documents, but the guys here have informed me that if I fill out the forms online and the set sail pass thats enough, what documents did you actually get?

That is a very smart way of thinking Sonny.

hi corkgirl next time you cruise book a back to back it makes sence. We pay a fortune for the flights.
