Has anyone without a gty been upgraded? Meaning did you already have a room assigned and then received an upgrade.

I don't think this happens much but man it would be nice!

There are still Oceanview and Balconies available so it is possible. Keep hoping. I picked a room based on reviews,location etc so do not even really want one. Good luck to the rest of you though.

I have been checking everyday and there was nothing there this morning. Thank you for the heads up.

No upgrade on our GTY -- but it is really close to our other two cabins so that is great!

Can't leave the country with 40+ 8th graders without those! But all the kids (& adults) took it in stride and made some amazing memories.

At a cathedral we went to in Quebec, they had a replica of Michaelangelo's Pieta. My DS took a pic so he can compare when we get to Rome in a few months
So glad it was a good trip, despite everything seemed to go wrong. Sometimes those are the best trips, because it creates memories you really won't forget! Sounds like the group was pretty good at "going with the flow".

It looks though if you are looking for National Holiday celebrations that Eze is will be having something bigger going on in their Botantical Gardens.
Oh, bummer there will be no chance of fireworks. I also was looking forward to that possibility.

We haven't been upgraded (we were not GTY), but we are 5A, so the only free upgrade possibility for us are the family staterooms, and I doubt we'd get upgraded to those... I do think there are still rooms available in the veranda categories, so it is possible for someone with an ocean view or inside stateroom to be upgraded.

If anyone does get upgraded, tell everyone here so we can all be excited for you!!

I just came from The Container Store this morning and they are having their travel sale, so that means luggage, travel accessories, luggage tags, packing cubes, etc. Picked up some more packing cubes (somehow we never have enough) and a super cute new carry on bag. I have been looking forever for one that will meet the European travel restrictions.

On another note I am not surprised that the Bastille Day celebrations are mostly on the day before (Saturday). They really don't like interfering with the Sunday day of rest tradition. Maybe it comes from experiencing the day a few times before, but it is really just the same fireworks you will see back home a few days earlier on July 4th.

Congrats on the upgrade (even if it wasn't a huge upgrade, BUT it's an upgrade!) What is a PIN upgrade? I haven't heard of this before. Must be good since it has the word "upgrade" in it.

Oh, thanks for the info on The Container Store! I love that store. I'm definitely going to go there this week to check out all the travel items!

Hopefully there will be shops and restaurants open on Sunday (when we arrive at Villefranche) since this is the Sunday day of rest tradition.

Cabin assignment! No upgrade, but I am perfectly happy with the cabin we got - 2134. So please do update our info for the FE!

Has anyone else tried to book Vatican tickets for our day in Rome? I heard you can book 60 days in advance so I've been checking since last week and we are now within 60 days but it is still just showing only thru July 15. I even tried clearing my Internet browser history in case that was the issue but still no luck. Anyone else not able to book these tickets?

I took a look but I don't see past July 15th either so it's not just you. Maybe they don't update their booking calendar daily?

Thanks! It was an email I got saying It is a special upgrade offer from 10C to 9A for so much amount of money... and I only have 1 week to respond. It has a specific PIN attached to it. It was a real good deal. When I called the CM said they just rolled out this program and took a long time to apply the pin to my reservation

Congrats to all that got upgrades & room assignments! So exciting!

We aren't expecting any upgrade or movement since we have our 2 verandas and they are connecting rooms with my parents. But hey, if DCL feels the need to upgrade us all to a suite, we would gladly do them that favor

We don't have a Container Store near us but I will have to check on line to see if the sales are there too? I keep hearing so many great things about that store! I am so jealous! I need so much organization help in my life LOL

As I feared, DS is growing again and his suit doesn't fit...ugh. He just barely got away with it at his concert 2 weeks ago. Darn teenagers! I'm going to wait until just before our trip to get him a new one. It's so hard to get him clothes since his soooo skinny & has really long legs compared to the rest of him. I love Old Navy bc they have the adjustable waist bands but he's grown out of those sizes now and obviously they don't have them in men's. so now I actually have to get him to try on jeans/shorts next shopping trip....oh the horror!!

My oldest is exactly the same way, except he's 12 (will be 13 in Nov), so he still fits the boy's sizes where they have adjustable waists. He is skinny with long legs (not necessarily tall for his age... he is actually pretty small for his age, but he has long legs in proportion to his body). So, the pants size I have to buy for his fits him in length, but I have to get the adjustable waists kind of pants/jeans and have to make the waist about 2 sizes smaller than the pants are. Yes, when he (eventually) gets out of the boy's sizes and into men's sizes, then he will have to go and try on clothes.... yes, the horror! LOL!! Neither of my boys like shopping at all, let alone taking time to try things on! I try to get them to come with me when I go buy their clothes, but they just say get whatever you want... we'll be happy with it. So, my rule is if they don't come with me when I buy them clothes, they have to wear what I buy them, even if they don't like it. I do make them come with me when I buy them new shoes since you DO have to try those on, but they even try to get out of trying on the shoes... they will hold them up, and say, "Yah, these will fit.... let's just get them." Of course, I make them still try them on... For whatever reason, they just do not like taking the time to try anything on at a store. ha!!

But, at least so far when I buy them clothes (without them with me), they have been happy with whatever I buy them and wear everything with no problem. I am guessing there will be a point where they will be a bit more opinionated as to what they wear... maybe that will be high school... and yes, once they hit the men's sizes, I will be making them go shopping to pick out their own clothes and try them on, since those are not adjustable like boy's clothes.

My belief is that they only update the website availability to purchase the tickets once per week. I've been checking every day for a couple weeks now and that appears to be the case.
