I'm on the Epic on Saturday, and it is also sold out, and both my bids for Haven's still say pending too.

I sail out on the Breakaway this Sunday and just got my acceptance notice.

 

Booked a casino offer, had a free comp inside room (paid admin fees of $300 each for 2 people).  Bid $150 p/p for the upgrade to balcony and got a family balcony B2.

We are on same cruise 4/14 Breakaway and also had a casino offer inside room comp.  My balcony and spa balcony bids were lower than above by about $25pp, but bid in the poor range $50/pp for oceanview and just got it.  One of those at front of the ship.  I had lost hope after the Oasis incident also and ship showed sold out. Pretty good.

Did not win bid for 4/14 Breakaway. Was trying for Haven Courtyard Penthouse with Balcony (H5) at $760 per person; currently have Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony (MB). Obviously still looking forward to what we booked!

I'm on Transatlantic Pearl out of New York on 4/26...anyone hearing upgrade responses yet?

 

I am on the Epic on the 27th and have not heard a thing. I think they say they let you know up to 48 hours before departure.

I read somewhere that they let you know weekdays, up to 4pm Eastern standard time.

We sail this Sunday on the Bliss in a mid ship Balcony cabin and got notified today that they were unable to approve our requests for upgrade.  We bid on 3 Haven Staterooms, all $2k ($4k for the both of us) and got rejected.  And the Penthouse bid was considered a 'Strong' bid.  I think being the week before Easter Sunday our ship is legitimately sold out and just offered upgrades in the off chance of last minute cancellations.

Agree w 100% because 4k for Courtyard is a very good bid. I see bids going off at 1500 for Courtyard and heard on ship as low as 670 pp. So def cause Bliss, prob sold out as you said and lastly cause Easter and Spring Break for most all of Northeast/ New England.

Wow, good bid, must certainly the ship is sold out. Our bid is not as handsome, in fact is in the poor section, but we are unwilling to offer more than the spa pass costs for a Spa Balcony or Spa mini suite which is not a suite at all, to me is just  has a bigger bathroom, as i have said before, NCL should change that to deluxe balcony. 🙂

Had a bid for a balcony at $100 per person and mini suite at $125 per person and both were declined for NCL Sun April 15th. As far as I could tell, the ship was definitely not sold out. We are in an oceanview room category OD. We did pay very little for the oceanview and booked during a big price drop. The balcony bid was in the fair range and the mini suite was in the poor range.

We have done the same with both cabins you mentioned. I bid 125 and 150 I believe. Wasn't going to bid more than it would cost us for spa passes. Why bother, Right? We sail may 5 and currently they are still showing the max 15 available for the spa balcony, none for the minisuite. If we get one, great! If not, no big loss. I am not sure how much we would use the spa. I just like the idea of the indoor hot tub while cruising to Alaska!

From what I can tell, a lot of people bid on those balconies from inside rooms and will bid more b/c they booked really cheap. Was it still showing that balconies were available just a few days out?

agree, We are currently on Deck 13, mid suite Balcony, if we get the upgrade to Spa Balcony or spa mini suite then great, if not, we are happy just the same, we would buy the spa passes either way.

Yeah it was showing balconies available (a lot too) a few days before the sailing. Now it shows the entire sailing as sold out. Maybe because are sailing in 2 days.
