We just received the email that our bid was accepted for our Oct. 25th sailing on Freedom.  Yahoo! 😀 We had a JS and bid just over the minimum for a GS.  It was the only bid we made.  They've already updated the cabin # on the app and the set sail pass, but the luggage tags and e-docs haven't been updated yet.  So excited!  Good luck to everyone bidding. 

 

So that's where my GS went :).  Maybe I'll get your JS since that's the only one of my bids still pending...   Congrats on the upgrade!!

When I did I mock booking earlier today (before I received the bid acceptance email) there were 16 of the 22 GS's still available, and there were about 25 (of 90) JS's still available.  Fingers crossed for you and a JS!

I think I'm driving my husband crazy with all this talk of bids and upgrades!  He'll just be happy to get onboard.  Still lots showing, but since I had an aft view balcony, I think the best I can do is maybe a JS.  Didn't make big bids - like you, just over minimum.  After the last 18 months,  I'll sleep in staff quarters if it means being on the ship!!  Thanks for the well wishes, I'll update when (or if!) i hear from Royal...

Was able to check in today (45 days).  Got an email for Royal Up.  Since it's a few day cruise from Tampa, we booked a guarantee balcony.  Was offered $30 pp to bid on a regular balcony.  Did a mock booking and saw no balconies available. I don't like the idea of Royal Up for this since we cannot choose our own cabin.  Just going to stick with guarantee.

 

Wouldn't do guarantee on a longer cruise though.  Always pick our own balcony cabin then to get location, etc that we want.

So - still not update on my 23OCT2021 Odessey bid for Royal Up.  A week now since my GS bid expired and my JS bid remained at PENDING but became locked as far as the ability to Modify or Cancel.  On one of the FB groups for the sail date - appears GS's wins got assigned yesterday and one person commented they got their JS accepted - I just continue to wait patiently (not really) wondering if the inability to modify at this point is a positive indicator...

Locking the ability to update doesn't really indicate good or bad news these days.  Some have had them locked only to receive the 'you didn't win' email.  Others have won.

 

I wouldn't give up hope, though.  Some have been notified as close as the 2nd day out from sailing.  Hope you get it!  🙂

I have bids in on that sailing too and both my JS bid and my GS bid still say "pending".  I think we got overlooked all the way around.  😞

I hope not!  Maybe they are still shifting people around....and waiting for last minute cancellations.

Still waiting for the 10/25 Freedom sailing.  My JS bid has been locked for days, no way to modify.  All my others are expired.  Fingers crossed for both of us that locked=woohoo!

Just went to do a mock booking on my cruise, and it shows JS as Sold Out, although my bid still says pending.  Sold Out to me looks like the cabins have been assigned, but the lack of email or cc charge makes me think it's over  ☹️.   Maybe things will change in the next few days, but it'snot looking good...

I received my RUp offer for my Christmas cruise! Exactly 60 days until we cruise. I've been checking RUp almost every day. I almost screamed when I saw the email. We were looking for a cheap getaway for Christmas so we purchased an inside guarantee. I submitted a bid for a balcony.  Here's hoping we get it. Let the waiting begin.

 

36 connecting ocean view balconies

74 spacious Oceanview balconies

110 total balconies remaining
