WOnderful trip report! Simple and easy to follow. We are headed out on our first MR cruise in April, and I was wondering where you found your info on costs for port upgrades? We are booked into an inside stateroom, but would be kind of fun to upgrade. It is just my DW and I this time (25th wedding anniversary trip) so don't really need tons of room, but trying concierge might be fun!

Any info you might on where I can research this would be appreciated

The only information on port upgrade we get is from people's report here. Remember though the upgrade cost varies from sailing to sailing depending on how busy it gets. I kept checking for availability of suites till the last day and compared it with the upgrade cost that people had paid. Actually I was hoping for a mid ship suite, my first choice but even though we were early there, we were not that lucky. At least I got my second choice

Hey, I had one more question about your port upgrade. I just got an e-mail from my TA and she said I would go to the upgrade desk after checking in, but you talked like you did your upgrade right when checking in... is ther a separate desk to go to for the MR cruise?

She may be thinking about Port Canaveral

Oops, sorry somehow this got ignored. At San Pedro too, the upgrade desk is a separate desk and you get your check in done and then look at your upgrade options at a different desk.

Just got back from our MR cruise!!

We signed in, then asked about upgrade... she sent us to the lady right next to her. She had a list with all the calculations. We could have gone from 11C inside stateroom to a 9A large porthole for $700, 4A for verandah for $735... and I think a 1BR was around $1200 more. We went for the 4a; our very first verandah room!!

What a wonderful trip report. Makes me feel like I was back on the boat. We upgraded at port to a 1-bedroom as well. From a 4E to 1BR was $735. The best money we spent. We got one of the midship rooms. Loved that room! We spent alot of time in our room and we felt it was worth the spluge. I am jealous of seeing the dolphins. We didn't see any wildlife except pesky birds. (that seems to be a reoccuring theme, we have lived in Alaska for a year and have not seen wildlife either..) We will keep our eyes peeled for sea creatures when we are on the Dream at the end of the month. I am hoping for a pod of dolphins!

Came across your TR when you were showing another poster about your aft balcony suite. Wow! Amazing!!! We are very close to the San Pedro port and REALLY hope DCL comes back someday (especially since it's so close to Disneyland compared to San Diego). By the way, we are booked out of San Diego for next May and next October.

Loved how you display your photos like a montage! So beautiful!!! Hope to someday be in an aft verandah, let alone in a suite!!! What a score for you!

I also really loved the photo of your DD with Minnie at the end of the trip. She looked sincerely elated! So sweet!

Your children must be so big by now! Thanks again for sharing!
