We just sailed on 4 night Dream on Sep 23. We paid $760 to upgrade at the port from a 4c to CatT (1 bedroom).

This was our first cruise and we are hooked. Won't be able to sail in anything smaller than a T with concierge.

We were able to get cabana 5 at CC thanks to our wonderful host Anne-Marie.

In the Roy you got unlimited internet and other perks, I have to say it was the most incredible cruise I have ever been on, and that our kids, who were NOT with us hate us for life .
What an awesome upgrade! Can I ask how many times your original fare was the upgrade (Since I wouldn't presume to ask what you actually paid) On our Dec cruise there seem to be plenty of 1bd available, although the Disney Suites are not showing up. I doubt anything but an Oceanview would be in our price range, but it is neat to know such a huge jump from IGT to a suite is possible.

Well the jump was possible because none of those who upgraded ahead of us wanted to pay the price or needed that much room. The room for two on the website had been 9k, we paid 3075 for it. Our IGT rate had been 1136. DH felt how many times would this suite be available, and went for it . It was awesome .

Question... So we are in a 4D (the Deluxe family with veranda)... From what it seems was that the upgrades were from ocean view to something similar to what we are in and/ or a concierge? If we are already in the largest before being in a concierge, is there any chance we will be offered that? If so anyone know the price tag on this (3 night Dream to Bahamas)... THANKS

How do you find out which rooms are available on your cruise? I don't think our trip is near capacity and would we get a better deal?

I am sort of wondering the same thing. We are sailing in a 4A on a 7 nighter out of Galveston in Dec. I wonder how much extra it would be to jump up to the 1 bedroom concierge. I need to go look up the added perks that come with the concierge to justify the extra cost to my hubby if it is available.

We are in several 4a's on 10/20 and 10/27 out of Galveston, I probably won't change since we have connecting cabins and 2 each in a cabin but am going to find out if available and how much. I'll post any info I get for you . I have no idea what I will decide and since no DH cruising 10/27 will just need to decide / justify to myself

We got an awesome deal on this cruise. This will be my 13th cruise and my first time ever with a balcony so I am afraid that will spoil me to begin with. I have no idea how I would go back to being steerage after cruising in a concierge suite lol!!! I think the minor upgrade cost would cost me big bucks in the future. In any case, I am off to see if there are any available for my sailing.

You get a good deal at Port if there is availability. After you check in you go to the supervisors desk and they will tell you what is available and how much it will cost you to upgrade.

Just so you know, you won't be offered any kind of upgrade at the port you have to go to the Supervisor's desk and ask if any upgrades are available.
You can upgrade (if available) to a cat. V, same size cabin but with concierge amenities, or cat. T a 1 bedroom suite or a cat. R the 1 bedroom royal suite.

Thanks JoiseyMom for the info. Something to think about now. The current price for the 1bd on our cruise is 12k. By your estimates, it would probably be too much for the upgrade, but I can start doing the math.

A question if ya'll don't mind.

When you upgrade at port do you pay at the supervisor's desk? Or is it treated like any other onboard charge and billed to the room account?
I know it does not make any difference. I'm just curious.
Thanks so much for any info.
