We leave on the Radiance out of Sydney in a few weeks so I logged in to complete our online paperwork yesterday. I ran out of time, so logged in again last night and did a double and triple take regarding our room assignment. We were upgraded from a D1 to a JS! I am still in major shock!!! The cruise has been sold out of suites and balconies for a few months now and has been sold out of interior cabins for the last several weeks! This is our 9th cruise with RCCL and our first visit from the upgrade fairy! We had booked our original cabin over a year ago and am sad to be losing it since it was center hump, but will take the JS. Thank you upgrade fairy!!!

Oh, she's down under! That's why we don't see her up here anymore.

Congratulations!

We just got off her in Sydney from the transpacific crossing on October 8th. There was a dreadful cold going around too. Judging by all the coughing and sniffling going on, more than half the people caught it; my wife and I included. Glad it was only a cold and not the flu.

Oh and congrats on the upgrade, CyberTag!

Congratulations. If you did not pay anything towards your upgrade and it really was the upgrade fairy that switched cabins for you, unfortunately you will not earn double points. But, you will enjoy the extra space, larger bathroom and walk-in closet.

Congratulations on the upgrade. The JS on the Radiance are very nice😊She has only just arrived for the Australian cruise season. Radiance is one of our favourite ships. We promise to take care of her and her crew whilst downunder. Just wish we could keep her all year round. 😊

I think the last time we saw her was in the late 90's.

Congrats OP!

What a wonderful surprise for you! We cruised on the Radiance out of Sydney a couple of years ago. It was a fantastic cruise, great itinerary. Would love to do it again one day. Enjoy!

I will also be sailing Radiance in a few weeks from Sydney...this cruise is also sold out since final payment deadline but cabins are popping up from time to time..

And when I checked the cruise planner also yesterday, I was also upgraded from a Large Ocean View cabin in deck 4 (opposite of the solo cabins few steps from Atrium where the large window Oceanviews are) to a D1 midship Balcony at deck 10 where the JS cabins are.

Are we on the same sailing? Who knows this might be your room.

It is actually my first time to be upgraded, and also happened to be my first cruise as a D+, so what they have written on the fine print that D+ and Pinnacles have greater chances of upgrades might be true.. as I have been Diamond for quite a few years... never been upgraded until now.
