I have just had an email from Cunard upgrading us from A1 deck 13 to Pl for our 29 night round trip on QM2 leaving on Thursday. She does exist. I thought the Upgrade Fairy was only a myth.

Very happy for you. That is tremendous. I have an A1 Guarantee for the 2018 QE World trip, but do not have high hopes for the same fairy to visit me.

That's fab. We always hope for an upgrade, but alas it never happens. I am always jolly happy just to be in any cain on QM2, so I can't complain, but an upgrade would be a nice gesture from the upgrade fairy

Good for you. That is a very good result.

We have been assigned today for 22 Sept - on an A1 Gty, we got exactly that, deck 12, immediately under the sports deck on the starboard side - let's hope there's no tennis/soccer/golf players are board who are using it up above us

Icing on the cake

We are still holding a gty inside cabin for our trip in January. I think the ship will be full and so don't expect a call from the upgrade fairy; still DH and I are just happy to be on board.

Bars 135, don't worry about the ship being full. Our voyage was full but we still got upgraded. Good luck.

A very nice upgrade but only one will be spoiled! I've stayed in both BC and PG and the additional space and amenities put these two grades a world apart. Enjoy your voyage! Perhaps we will meet on the NY-QBC segment.
