We booked a cruise for later this year, but have decided to upgrade to a balcony. The problem is that the upgrade price is bit high (about $300 per person).

So the question is, if we cancel our current trip (which is paid in full), and then go with a travel agent, will they be able to get us a better rate for a balcony? Because that $600 could be used towards a message, excursions, etc.

That is a very difficult question to answer as there are many variables to the situation. Besides, if you have already paid in full, you may be looking at cancellation penalties if you try to cancel now. I would suggest you contact a local cruise agent specialist and inquire as to what they are able to do for you. It does not hurt, nor cost money to ask and you may be pleased with the results.

Your question is a very broad one. Are you talking about the same date on the same ship? Do you have an agent and doe's he or she have a group booking? Is your booking more than 70 days away so you can get a full refund? Are you a Crown and Anchor diamond member ($200 off any balcony cabin)? Did you check out the Crown and Anchor magazine for coupons? If the ship is near full you're not going to get a great price. I alway price RCCL and then check with my agent. She is always as low but she keeps me informed about the "NO BRAINER" deals. I also book a cruise while on a ship for the $100 on board credit. If I change my mine about the date and ship my agent keep the same booking number and I get to keep my on board credit. When I book on board my agent gets the credit for the booking. The price doesn't change. A good agent will work for you. Get one that is local or one recommended by a friend. I would stay away from on line agencies. I like the personal service of my own agent. I hope my reply was of some help. Good luck!

Thanks everyone for responding.

Our cruise date is 11/25, Voyaer; so we have enough time to cancel without being penalized. And we want to stay on this ship, it just seems as though we can't get a break with the RCCL Travel Agents in order to make this happen.

I will try to find a local agent and see if that will bring any assistance. If not, we'll be "inside" on our trip.

Thanks for the help.
