Default Cruise upgrade
Contacted the cruise line because of a huge drop in the price of our room for a cruise on the allure. They said they could not give us a credit because I had already made my final payment, but they could give us an upgrade. We went from a large interior to a Central Park Balcony. Not too bad if you ask me. Can't wait till time too leave now.

After final payment is made you're out of luck if the price of your category drops. They use to credit you not too long ago but there's been a lot of policy changes since then. You were fortunate to get an upgrade. What is the sailing date?

The Central Park neighborhood is a favorite place of mine. Very peaceful and they do a great job with all the plants and small trees.

That is a good upgrade, going from interior to a balcony.

It seems upgrades are more easy to come by on the Oasis and Allure. Makes sense. More cabins and more categories to work with.

Anyway, enjoy your upgrade!

Good for you! I'm really happy that you got an upgrade--you deserve it. Too bad we're not on the same sailing...I know you would find me if we were.

You're right.I'll find you if we 're on the same sailing ! It was so nice to finally meet you and your wife last time.I loved to talk to you guys, made me feel like I'm talking to old friends I known for years ! Still remembered that image of you dancing in the glass elevator with a glass of wine in your hand.My husband said Sonny know how to live his life, no wonder he looks so young !
