I was waitlisted for a minisuite on our upcoming Sea Princess cruise this July (we were booked in an outside, non balcony cabin). I checked 4-5 times a day for minisuite availability. I saw minisuites available two times over the course of 6 months that we were on the waitlist and neither time were we offered the chance to switch, despite being #1 on the waitlist. Due to it being late at night the first time I saw a minisuite available we missed out and were not able to book it, but lucked in the next time I saw one available and were able to switch. I had already checked two or three times the day I found one available. Ironically, both times I found a minisuite available was on the last day of the month.
