Does everyone get offered Royal up? When does the email typically come?

No rhyme or reason if and or when you get an offer. Royal algorithms. They always keep us guessing. 🤔🤯🤪

Has anyone received a Royal Up email for the 6-day Anthem on November 8, 2021 out of Cape Liberty? And if you did what was the minimum bid from a JS to a GS and the minimum from a GS to an OS?

You may also want to ask this in the Roll Cal thread for that sailing.

Received free casino cruise card in snail mail on Oct 5th for one of 4 or 5 different cruises. We chose to book the Serenade 4 night departing Tampa on November 4th, inside cabin and requested invoice for taxes on 6th, and invoice paid on 7th. Royal Up offer in my email on the 8th for 4 options, Oceanview, Spacious Oceanview, Ultra Oceanview and Oceanview Balcony. No suites on the RU offer. 
Put in bid for all but regular Oceanview as we are currently inside on a upper deck and do not want  risk moving to a much lower one just for a window, lol. All offers are still pending but number of  cabins available on these upgrades are dwindling fast on the website so not holding out too much hope. Will keep you posted if I hear back, but does anyone know when the offers expire, or if they sit there as pending so there is still hope? This is my fist RU offer…

Most reports suggest bids stay in pending status till you get approved or denied. BTW, not being able to bid higher than a balcony when in an inside is normal - what's offered depends on what you currently have booked.

I put in a bid for my Cruise on the Odyssey for a junior suite - currently in balcony.  we are three passengers.  there are an obscene amount of double junior suites available but no triple junior suites.  It looks like the whole deck 9 is triple and quad JS cabins.  Anyone have any idea due to capacity if Royal is just holding these cabins in inventory?  I cannot wrap my head around that every single triple JS is sold but hardy any double JS?  I was able to bid on a GS but again, none showing for sale.

Received my email upgrading me and my husband to from obstructed view balcony to JS on Freedom sailing October 25, 2022!  I really thought we'd never win.  I bid $10 over minimum.

 

My documents haven't changed yet, though.  I guess Royal is just trying to keep us guessing...

You got a RU offer for next year's cruise?  😉

No.  I think my fingers were doing the happy dance!!  Should've said October 25, 2021.  I wish we could find out a year in advance.  It would take all the stress out of the process!

Hello everyone!  I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on a cabin with 5 people in it.  We have GS 2 Bedroom on Allure in December.  Everyone else on the rollcall got the RU e-mail, but we did not (30 day error when trying manually).  I know with 5 in the cabin, we actually have 2 conf. #s.  Just wondering if any evidence that that may have something to do with it (all 5 of us have same last name).

Thanks all!

I wouldn't even attempt a RU bid in this situation... it's unlikely there's a room available that will hold you all.

Ok hope someone has some insight of what this may mean .  We have a short cruise on Independence coming up in 3 weeks .  I made 3 bids up until today all where pending today the Jr Suite and 1 bed Grand Suite show expired and Owners Suite is pending still but I can't make adjust.  Any thoughts about what this may mean.

I put in a Bid for Spacious Panoramic Ocean View on Independence. My sailing is just under a months time. Currently shows "Pending" while all my other bids are "Expired". I know a good amount of you have done this in the past. Is that normally a good sign?

On a cruise a couple weeks ago I bid a jr and GS.  About 3 weeks before the cruise the jr expired and the GS pending and it locked, no adjustments could be made.  5 days before the cruise we won the GS.  This is what happened to me but it doesn’t always happen.  Pending is hope not certainty.  Good luck.

It means nothing!  Hopefully you win, but don’t try to read the tea leaves.

Same exact experience as Ozark above. On board the Mariner and loving the suite life! 12:00 check in, we arrived 11:15, I pointed out we were early and they just said no worries. Since our suite wasn’t ready til 1:15 we stashed our roll boards in the suite lounge. Alejandro prepared cappuccinos for us, we had some treats for lunch, he made ice show reservations for tonight, chef’s table reservation for tomorrow night. It just made everything so easy! Loved our room when we got in! Our room, and the entire ship, sparkles and looks very fresh! These three days will pass way too fast!
