Congrats to you both for the upgrades. Am dead jealous. This is only our third trip on OV and took a guarantee outside cabin with fingers crossed as only suites left when we booked and that was too many pennies. We had a balcony for our two previous trips and it was really good. Had sneaky look at our on-line details and see we have been allocated exactly what we booked so don't think there is much chance of an upgrade now unless it can happen at the last minute. While I am on, have you done this area before and did you pre-book any diy shore trips or just see what was available at the port? There don't seem to be as many recs around for the guides on the med stops as there were for the carib which we thought were really helpful. Congrats again you lucky people:p

Wow to you and rhl. Lucky you 2 people are! We had a suite on our first OV trip. It was brilliant. By a certain person, I assume you have been in touch with AV himself and he wants you nearer him :D funny as I am sure the Capt lives at the front port side :rolleyes:. Don't ask me why I think that and you may know better!:o

Congrats to you all that have been given upgrades. Have your details of your booking on the OV site say you have upgrades or only on your tickets? Not received our tickets yet but keeping fingers crossed.

lol No was late in from Big Bro (3 am) and was out all day yest.

Not sure when to start packing lol -- I am away for Bank Holiday --so need to get that out of way first -- then SERIOUS packing to start :-)


Cant remember who mentioned about Trips --but we have allways done the Med independant or got a bus. Its dead easy everywhere.

Hope they dont change itinery too much as my sis in law lives in Messina and planning on meeting up with her that day too :-)

Of course its not a wind up after 17 cruises with OV, loyalty has finally been rewarded.

I think Colin and Sheila are only on their 3rd OV --and they have a suite too --so its NOT a wind up.......................


And Leedslad the ship is never sold out ... each TA is allocated a band of cabins -- who you spoke to had maybe ran out -- shop around ....
OV will now be selling the inner cabins ect off cheaper.. as last min. buys and hence ensuring the ship is full

I thought the cabin allocation was done by ocean village office in London or at least thats what OV customer services told me when I asked months ago??? I would not have thought that TAs had write access to the OV bookings details such as cabin numbers???

Correct. I always like to book the same cabin and have achieved this through a number of different TAs (whoever is offering the best deal). They inevitably have to refer to the Ocean Village desk.

I have allways understood the cabins are block released to all ta's --thats why when you enquire about booking , their is allways a* limtited few left* We have allways had the same cabins every time (have never booked through OV though)


As our initial booking (this time)was for 3 people -- we are in a *new to us* cabin-- when the 3rd person dropped out (and cancelled/lost deposit etc) we rung OVand TA and asked for our *usual* cabin --as now their are just two of us in a *family* cabin... and they wont let us change,,,,,, that would have been in their best interest as two more paying customers. Now its me and my sis with 2 twins and 2 drop downs ...
