Sorry, I should clarify my comment. Just like with the beverage that comes with the Welcome Aboard Basket as well as the D+ amenitu(s) that can be ordered, you can change these items for each cruise by making a different selection.
Since upgrades are usually given after final payment and closer to departure date you can set your upgrade preference for you most current cruise and then change those preferences for each cruise thereafter upon your return home.
Your preferences are not set in stone and can be changed to suit each cruise you have booked. It's just a matter of going in and resetting your preferences.
This is true for the most part. However, for those who have cruises booked close together, such as consecutive cruises, it's not a good design. Say you want a different amenity or upgrade choice for cruise 1 vs cruise 2. How do we know when they have read our choice for cruise 1 and it's safe to change the the preference for cruise 2? Even then, if your B2B was 2 15 day cruises, you could probably make it work. But if your B2B is a 3 day followed by a 4 day, it would be impossible to know when you could change the preference for cruise 2, without messing up the preference for cruise 1.
A better design would be to add "per cruise" preference selections, in the same area where you choose excursions, wine packages, etc. I'd keep the current preference section under the profile area, as a method to initially populate the settings for each cruise. This way, folks who never change their preferences would have nothing to change. However, those of us who change preferences "per cruise" would have a way to make changes specific to a cruise.
