Upgrades are rare. Good luck. Since you not only want an upgrade, but want a specific balcony category, it might be best to check the current rates and see if paying for the upgrade is feasible. Some sailings have balcony guarantees but that might not get you the E1 you desire.
good luck- keep us posted.

Happy Cruising !

If they have had gauranty type available for categories like balcony then the chance of upgrade will be slim. If the number of solid bookings plus balcony gauranty was equal to the number of balconies then it owuld be closed out but. Say there were 20 showing and there were 19 gauranties they would still try to sell any of the 20 at full price (and close out the category) but if not then when the assign the gauranties there would only be one left as an upgrade option so the odds would be long against it. There is no way (that I know of) of knowing the gauranty count.

You can make it happen. $$'s
There are good ships and there are wood ships, the ships that sail the sea,but the best ships are friendships and may they always be.
