It works the same for preferred location. In the six preferred location guest buildings, there surely are some king-size bed rooms with a water view ... that makes THREE separate things that make that room special yet you're only paying for one of them.
we have often been surprised and upgraded for free,to either water view or preferred. last time at CBR we were upgraded to pref. martiniques, with a pool view!! for free!


I just didn't think you could request a category that that they normally charge for.

being on their honeymoon, Iguess I would pay for the king bed, and request water view.

Hmmm...preferred king bed with a water view, that sounds great! But we're not on our honeymoon, been married for over 4 years. We still look like newlyweds though! I'll just ask my TA to request a water view room, and hope for some pixie dust. So far, on our four trips, I've only got a building I wanted, once (at OKW), so I can just hope for the best.

I'd love this room! Looks like 3949, so farthest away from OPR, so maybe not!

Second Great Trip to CBR!

We just returned from a great five-night stay at CBR. We loved staying in Bldg 26. Everything went very well at CBR. Can't wait to return in the future!

We just returned from an 8 night stay and I'm miserable. I want to be there right now! We were in Martinique room 2532 which was a corner room. We had a fabulous time despite a bit of rain. No issues with mousekeeping or busses. The morning after we checked in I took a shower and went to use the hair dryer and it was broken. I called maintenance and by the time we came back from breakfast at OPR a brand new one was in its place.
If anyone has any questions I'll be happy to answer them.

Unfortunately, that room no longer exists in that configuration. 3949 is in Trinidad South. Since that video was made, ALL of Trinidad South was refurbished as Pirate-themed rooms. The theme is in every detail ... beds shaped like pirate ships, night stands shaped like barrels, carpet resembling wooden deck planks, and so on. These are a separate booking category and cost more per night. These are available only with two double beds, no such thing as king-size beds in the Pirate rooms.

you can request anything. But yes, requesting a free upgrade is usually a waste of a request.

that's what I thought (and that was me, posting under hubby nebo's name, oops).

since there are so many bookable categories now, I thought you could book (and pay for) as many categories as you wanted.

example: preferred location, water view. OR king bed, water view. OR preferred location, king bed, etc etc.

a corner room is a great score, though!

Whoops, guess I should have looked at the date. Thanks for pointing that out!

Oh yea, know all about those pirate rooms. Big POTC lover here! Maybe with the family someday in the future!?

Didn't look at the date or where the room actually was, I know that there aren't any king beds there now. Just liked that the water was outside the room like that! But appreciate it anyway. :

There were 2-3 people in this thread that had just gotten back from CBR and each one stated multiple CMs at CBR told them queens were coming in 2013. There has been no formal announcement.

just back last night. 6 nights at CRB. Have a great room building 25 second floor, very close to opr

It did seam like it was getting more crowded by the day. The love bugs were crazy yesterday by the pool.
I now know why people don’t love the food court. It does get old after a few days.
We had the deluxe dinning plan and it worked great for us. We did have credits left over but we did love how we did not feel like we kept having to spend money on food/ drinks/ snacks.
