Congrats OP!

Never free.....and the cost varies. It IS less than if you'd booked the higher category in the beginning, but it's still generally at least another $1000.....depending on the category you're at to begin with, and the category you upgrade to.

Excellent. Thank you. Just wondering. What is the average savings?

It was $300 to upgrade from V to T. But we are just on the three day cruise. We are loving it!

Oops....yeah, sorry....I forgot to factor in the length of the cruise in my post above. That makes a difference, too.

The one time that we upgraded at the port, from a (then) Category 4, to a Cat 3, one bedroom concierge, it was for a 7 night cruise, it cost us close to $2000 to upgrade, and the savings weren't terribly great all things considered. I think we might have saved $1000 by doing an upgrade as opposed to booking it to begin with.
BUT....it was also a "special" cruise, the first time DCL went to Tortola....so that made a difference in the cost of the cruise and the amount of savings. In other words, it was more expensive to begin with, and the bargains just weren't there.
