  1. Yup, that was what I thought. But the NCL rep said I couldn't. The ID (interior) base fare I paid for was USD839 while the current BD base fare was USD849. My thought was that given, the other perks and taxes constant or with a slight increase (given take all offer), with this increase.. I should be able to upgrade but they said I was not eligible for this category. Of course the rep offer other upsells such as a much more expensive stateroom upgrade MB etc. USD600-1K+. So i'm kinda confused now on what are the components NCL take into account for upgrade eligibility.. this will allow us to better monitor price drops and eligibility before calling in.
  2. Thank you all for your input. (: For better clarity: 1. We're travelling as a couple (2 person in cabin only) 2. Book directly on NCL website and called in to NCL direct. (Not through any TA) 3. Fully paid up (past final payment) The main question I'm pondering over is: 1. Since I've paid in full for my IF stateroom with free at sea UBP (UBP gratuities, pre-paid gratuities, and taxes all paid up); I was wondering if the total bill of the upgrade has to be more than the total IF amount I paid in order to be eligible for an upgrade? 2. Or is it just my initial IF base fare vs a higher base fare from upgrade category stateroom (non sail away rate) would suffice to be eligible for an upgrade?
  3. Could anyone advise how NCL paid upgrades work after final payment. Is it the total cost of new upgrade -and which component of it if I may ask? - has to be more than total of final payment amount I've paid (including all free at sea gratuities, pre-paid gratuities)? Booked directly with NCL and tried to upgrade from IF to MX (MX base fare and total bill cost more then my IF total payment) directly with NCL but NCL rep said not allowed. Thank you in advance (:
  4. Dear all, could anyone advise how NCL paid upgrades work after final payment. Is it the total cost of new upgrade -and which component of it if I may ask? - has to be more than total of final payment amount I've paid (including all free at sea gratuities, pre-paid gratuities)? Because I've booked an Alaska Cruise on Jewel through NCL webpage last year and I just tried calling in to get a paid upgrade from IF (Inside) with UBP free at sea promo (Base Fare per person USD839 excluding gratuities) to a Balcony with take all offer (Current Fare per person USD849 excluding gratuities) and was told I was not allowed. Hence, I suggested MX (Base fare USD1049 and with taxes USD 2,600+ excluding pre-paid gratuities vs my final payment of USD 2,500+) which was also rejected by the NCL rep. :( Of course the rep said I could upgrade to MB and so forth where the current Base Fare per person is USD1149.
