We missed an upsell today for the Caribbean Princess sailing on 1/13 to a full suite for 899 PP . I called but they had all been accepted. I am now on the wait list ...... I hope we get it -

It was from a mini-suite to a full suite - 14 day Circle the Caribbean cruise -

Please excuse my ignorance here, but how does one go about seeing if you can get an upsell, we are located in Australia and going on a 28 night cruise next March, how far out do they offer them?

I'm not sure if it is different in Australia, but in the US we receive an email with the offer and a number to call, leave a message, and wait for a call back. Most of the offers I've received have been closer to sail date.

When I've booked with a travel agent, the upsell offers have come through him. Some TAs may not bother to forward the emails.

Upsell offers usually come after final payment date - if you want it you need to move pretty fast and not wait

They don't happen on every cruise. It depends on many factors.

biggest factor is if they have a number of balcony, mini suites or full suites not sold a month or so from sailing. Then the inventory department will start sending out the e-mails. If most of those cabins are sold then it is unlikely that you will get an upsell offer. I have over 30 cruises with Princess and have only gotten 3 offers, 2 I took and1 I passed on

12/3/17, Emerald, 17 days, mini to full suite upsell offer $1059 pp.

Today, we received a 2nd upsell offer to a suite, the first upsell offer was at $1499 pp about 6 week’s ago.

We passed on both offers and we’re happy with our aft mini and have a “no upgrades” noted in our booking. So apparently upsell offers may still be offered, even with a no upgrade notice.

We have 25 cruises with Princess.

you just never know when and if you are going to get one. It's our 3rd cruise with Princess, and until now we never got an upsell or upgrade. We got a free upgrade. It's my parents' first ever cruise, and they got an upsell offer last week.
We sail in two weeks.

Quick question --- We just accepted an upsell offer for a balcony from an inside cabin. We used future cruise credits for the deposit when the original booking was made. Are we eligible for the additional OBC we would receive for a balcony as opposed to the credit for an inside cabin? (Only a difference of $25 pp, but just curious as to how it works.) Thanks!

That is a great question I've wondered about. If you go to your cruise personalizer and click on the Payments & Credits tab for that cruise, it will say how much your OBC is. Please report back if you don't mind.

Our cruise personalizer doesn't reflect the higher OBC. I called Princess and was told that since these upsells were such good deals, we wouldn't be able to get the additional credit. I could understand if the offer was a true upgrade, but since we are paying for the upsell, and were bumped up to a higher cabin type, it seemed like we should receive the corresponding credit. Like I said, not a big difference, but it could be for others if jumping from an inside to a suite!

Technically we are paying for the different class cabin with the upsell unlike a complimentary upgrade.

No! The upsell email lists this in the fine print:

" Future Cruise Deposit program Onboard Credit (OBC) does not increase as a result of acceptance of this offer. If the promotion you are booked on has varying amenities by stateroom type, the amenities provided will be based on the category booked and paid for prior to purchasing this exclusive upgrade offer."

We once took an upsell to a full suite and never got the double cruise credit for it so I guess it doesn't apply to that either!
