Any Magic Cruisers upgrade at Port

Has anyone tried to upgrade at the port for the Magic cruises out of Galveston lately? Did you have any luck?

thanks

Our cruise was full, Mardi Gras week Southeast La Schools were off so not a lot available. That was not the case for many cruises out of Galveston. Thus leading to end of DCL Cruises in first week of 2014 out of Galveston.

When I checked a few days before my cruise you could still book 9 or 10 different types of rooms but at the port they told us the cruise was sold out and there were no upgrades available. I'm not sure how that worked out.

Thank you for sharing. I have a feeling ours is pretty full as there hasn't been much left to book online.

I have been reading your trip report and am really enjoying it.

No upgrades were available on our cruise mid-February out of Galveston.

Well, worst case scenario I would be more than happy with the cabin we have but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

Think we may have been on the same cruise (March 1 Galveston), and I believe they took the opportunity to work on several cabins. I know of at least 2 verandah cabins near us that had some work done while we were there. I'd also noted quite a bit of availability for cabins, but the no upgrades sign at the port and was surprised, but then later figured Disney decided to do some maintenance work.
