When I test book ES or PG, I get the same room selections but a price diff of $40.
So, exactly, what is the benefit of paying more for a PG booking?
Do they surprise you with an unknown upgrade or what?
This is a big deal for me because I definitely want a balcony on the Lido and that's what I'm choosing.
If that's the case, am I better off just booking ES?
TIA to all of you
You're an invaluable source of information and a fun bunch too
edited to add: I understand the deposit aspect of the prices but that's a non issue for me because if I had to cancel, a lost deposit would be the least of my worries because I'd probably be dead - only reason I can think of. :-)

Common way for them to do a sale. Honestly, not a great offer, compared to some others that I've seen before. Usually upgrades within the same type (eg interior, balcony, etc) are ~$20 per category. So a two category upgrade would equate to an approximate savings of $40. Of course it all depends how much you value your room location and such as well as the terms (such as cancellation) of the booking.
