Just got off 28 day Emerald cruise in R740. Loved that cabin location. I chose it and had it marked no upgrade. Booked directly thru Princess. 4 months prior to sailing, i looked at cruise personalizer and was moved to Aloha deck mid ship. I was furious. It took many phone calls but finally got my cabin back. We were traveling with friends who had cabin next to us. They werent moved.

 

I now will check my cabins every few days.

Myself and friends booked 3 cabins on the Riviera Deck on the Emerald next year to Hawaii. One friend called and asked if I had received an email stating that I was upgraded. This was the day after we linked all three reservations for dining purposes. I said no. She called, it was up two decks and mid ship but not in as desirable location as we had on the Riviera Deck (we are the last balcony room--hence a slightly larger/angled balcony) plus near to the pool, bar and buffet on the upper decks. She read that the reservation had already been upgraded and if she wanted to decline they would do their best to get the original room back. This upgrade was 11 months in advance of our cruise date. She was able to get the original room back. Well I decided to call and put do not upgrade on mine. Come to find out they had in fact upgraded me as well. I was also able to get my original room back. Why would they move 2 of the reservations after linking? We are across the hall from our 3rd friend? This is our first experience with Princess. Had we not specifically picked those rooms for location and other amenities an upgrade would have been nice. I dont understand the reasoning for making the upgrades to far in advance.

Makes no sense to me especially since it is not an apparent upgrade from where I sit.

Hello

 

Crown princess 1/16/19 booked inside R736. I chose that cabin because of the huge deck right out the door. Asked to mark no upgrade! What do I see this morning but an email telling me I have been upgraded to plaza deck with a window!

 

I am going to call when they open wondering what my chance of getting my cabin back is. Anyone care to share their experience with this ?

 

Thank you Reader

Got a nice upgrade from an inside to a B-1 balcony on Oceania Riviera. I have NO problem taking an upgrade if offered. I usually have deck plans of whatever ship we're going to be on & check where the upgrade is located. Obviously I'd refuse one under the jogging deck, unless I liked being woken up early(I don't!)

I haven’t heard anyone mentioning about the term META added to there reservations. It’s always on my reservations & it means that I will only except an upgrade to the next higher category like from inside to Ocean View or Ocean View to Balcony etc. It’s a great thing if you’re willing to be moved to a higher category.

 

OP did get a meta upgrade, but did not want the one received. Wanted no upgrade at all and should not have received one if the reservation was correctly marked.

 

OP did not give the Plaza deck cabin number, but some of those oceanview cabins can be very undesirable.

 

o Several are smaller than normal cabins. So much smaller that only one nightstand is there.

o Some have the dreaded 3rd and 4th bunks mounted on the wall.

As you said, you linked the reservations for dining purposes. That is all the linking affects. It does not apply to cabin locations.

 

As for when the upgrades were made, it has to do with what cabins were selling and which were not. The algorithms said they could resell your original cabins better than selling the cabins that were the upgrades. I have received an upgrade as soon as one hour after booking a cruise, many months before embarkation day.

marking your booking no upgrade is a request only but anyone can be moved for operational reasons

I understand what you are saying I also study the deck plans that is why I picked that cabin! You walk out your door up a few steps you have a huge aft deck and pool! I do not want to be in an inside with a window or not in the middle of the ship! I did ask them to mark it no upgrade! 29 cruises number 30 coming up not a newbie at this circus..lol :)
