I agree with Lisa - I think it's an awesome location and I'd be pleased. I love Aft and starboard so that would be 2 of my 3 wish items

Congrats!

Still checking...

The problem is that I'm checking to upgrade but the prices are way too high and the category I want is not available. Do you think after they finish assigning the rooms some categories will become available , or am I just dreaming , lol...
We booked GTY and were given a HA room and we didn't need it. We tried to get another room with no luck. I asked my TA about upgrading to the next category which I thought would be a few hundred dollars. Surprise! Upgrades are based on what the prices where when you originally booked. You do not pay today's prices. I was able to upgrade for about $120. If the category you want isn't available, I would get prices for the categories that are available and make my decision based on that. Hope this helps.

Booked 7a gty and just got assigned room 10546. Looks to be a 5a just 1 floor below the quiet cove pool area, so that should work nice for us.

Wondering why some 7A were upgraded to category 5 and others were not.

We did not received an upgrade to cat 5, wonder if that had to do with having our dining reservations linked to another family. For those who booked 7A and were upgraded to cat5, did you have your reservations linked to another family or stateroom?

We are sort of neighbors!! Woohoo!! My mom and I had 10566 on the Fantasy and we enjoyed it! There is some noise from above but hopefully it will be minimal for us!

WOOHOO!!!! We had 9010 (deluxe family oceanview) so just a few doors down and we loved it. It was very quiet in that area and it was our first time staying "forward".

I'm not sure why some got upgraded, others did not - there seems to be no reasoning to it. To answer your question, no I don't have any other reservation linked to ours. Perhaps you could call and see what it would cost to upgrade? As another poster mentioned, I'm pretty sure it's based on the rate when you booked so it might not cost that much? I hope it works out for you!


Sorry I'm delayed in posting the info - I think I noticed our assignment a little after 230pm and then got stuck on a call. We were also upgraded to Cat 5A - 10646. I'm very happy to get Aft and starboard and I read quick reports this location was quiet, even though it's under Cabanas. I loved the deck 10 overhang so that doesn't bother me - just hope it's not too noisy. I don't have any complaints - very pleased!

I bet it has more to do with when you booked. First come, first served? I booked back in February. I can't imagine it's random or people would get upset. There are such a limited number of 7A cabins, that many of us were bound to be upgraded. I'm sure they sold (and are still selling!) 7As long after they sold out of actual 7A rooms!

To answer your question, no I did not have my reservation linked to any other person's. However, it doesn't make sense to me that dining would have anything at all to do with cabin assignment. Can you just link your reservation with another person's for dining only? Or does linking your reservation apply to all aspects of the cruise, as in wanting rooms near each other. If the second is true, then I CAN see that being an issue. They maybe were trying to keep you near whomever you are linked to?

Maybe check when you booked and where your room is in comparison with your linked friend's room.

Oh and I wanted to add that they still have 20 some odd actual 7A rooms that somebody has to go in, so clearly not everyone can be upgraded.
