Upsell SY to SA/SB/SC $400 7 days Westerdam


Psee

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if this is a good deal. The SY guarantee is $935 so the upgrade would total $1335. The HAL website is showing $2099 for SC so it sounds like a great deal but I've read the additional square footage is the only major upgrade. The extra money could be spent for Hydro spa, Pinnacle, etc.. :)

The upgrade gets you to the Neptune Suite Class. I did this last year on the Westy, and it was well worth it. You have the concierge service, plus the Neptune Lounge, and the other perks.

Not a bad deal, but not a great one either. I have paid $199-299 for similar upsells. I think the amount is based on what you paid for your current cabin (at $935 you got a very good deal IMO).

 

While the cabin size of the SC is larger than your SY, IMO it is not that much bigger. What you really get is the Neptune suite "perks" - VIP lounge access, free laundry, Pinnacle dining for breakfasts, a couple of cocktail parties, bottle of sparkling wine, priority boarding and tenders, etc.)

 

One more thing - you should ask for the cabin number, as often you can pick from several and some of them may be SAs or SBs. If it was a Neptune suite cabin I like I would go for the $400 cost, otherwise I would wait for a better offer (assuming I was happy with my current cabin).

I think that's a decent price. May I ask when your cruise is? I'm hoping the upsell fairy pays me a visit.

 

11-08-14 Eastern Caribbean. I told my agent to counter the offer but they said it was just announced today so they wanted to see how it goes before accepting counter offers. :cool:

No, an upsell goes out to many, many people within all levels of cabins I.e. Cheapest balcony to most expensive balcony and it all the same price. There is no way that is true. Upsells are not done for each individual. The price will gradually decrease until people bite but there is point where they will not go below.

 

Just to add to this in aug 2013 I had a VH guarantee. I went from that to an aft wrap neptune for $600 single supp so $300. I then went to the ph for another $600. The original price I paid for that cruise was decent. I'd love to see an upsell like that again.

Thanks so much. Hopefully it won't be much longer for me. If they don't accept your counter you may see further upsells. I had 3 before I bit on my Panama canal cruise. I paid $2200 to go from an SY to a sa which I think was still pricy. Iirc it started out at $3500. My Panama cruise was in apr 2014. Good luck!

Interesting...... that hardly seems fair though. Might as well book a cheap fare and hope for an upsell.

The upsell price depends upon the category you are currently booked in so the price does vary. Going online and checking the number of cabins that are currently available for the cruise will give you an idea of whether additional price deductions are likely.

Of course. If you are in an inside it's going to cost you more than if you were in a signature suite. If you are anywhere within a category it will be the same i.e. if someone is in a VH room it will cost them the same as someone in a VA room etc.

I think it's worth it, but I will say that last year we got an upsell from an SY to an SB for $199 pp, for a 7-day Alaska cruise.
