Not normally, but it has been discussed on these boards that upgrades have apparently been reversed in the past after discussion with Cunard shoreside. I wouldn't want to put too large a wager on it though.
Neither would I. I've read of pax being returned to their original specified cabin number when they've been upgraded by Cunard for whatever reason, but never seen any mention of guarantee cabins being changed at the passenger's request once allocated. What I have seen on other boards, notably Celebrity, is guarantee pax ringing shoreside and asking to stay in the newly allocated cabin and not upgraded again, but no idea if Cunard would play ball on that or, for that matter, if they only do it for US passengers - there does seem to be a rule for us and a rule for them.
FWIW, I think the forward cabins allocated to the OP on deck 4 are the best of the lot
