So…there is a rumor on the cruiselines of the upgrade fairy. She visits you a week or two before the cruise and grants you an upgrade, for no additional cost. Well, I got sick of waiting for that bitch, hunted her down, and pinned her wings to the wall…kind of.
So here’s what REALLY happened. I’m a nerd, so I was obsessing over the cruise me and my husband are leaving for on Friday. I went to the website to see if they had any cool bonuses, like more onboard credit etc. About a month ago I went and they had free dinner at 3 of the specialty restaurants, as we’d lose $200 in onboard credit (different promotion) it wasn’t worth the price. Well, turns out that I stumbled on something much better. Our cabin cost us $1,399 / person (I knew this because I looked at it a few days ago after mentioning the price to someone and forgetting if it was right), and I see this 2 Bedroom Family Suite Cabin for $1,299 / person. I was enraged, at first. Then, I was intrigued. If the Suite was only $1,299 / person, then what was our normal cabin down to?
$899 / person. Yes, really. Our cabin price dropped $500/person in the span of a week, because these were not the prices when I was on last week. Here’s the original room we had, which I was perfectly content with:
And here is the suite we ended up in:
EXCLUSIVE AMENITIES ON SUITES AND PENTHOUSES
Eats, Treats and Libations
Arrival and Departure
So…needless to say, I’m on cloud 9, and giddy as hell at this point. So, our room has nearly doubled in size, we now get a butler, wine, fruit, and treats, special VIP getting onto the boat (that means we board earlier, and in a shorter line, than everyone else). … well, you see the list.
I’m off to be giddy now…peace!
