Confused! 

 

My bid is showing pending, cruise in 3 weeks time.  I have tried to alter the bid (increase it) but it doesn't give me the option, can anyone advise why this might be and how to go about getting access to increase the bid?

If you can't alter it, and it hasn't been rejected, I've heard some say that means you got the upgrade and it just hasn't processed yet.

Pending means you won. Cabin might take a bit to assigned.

All bids are usually in a "Pending" status from the time you bid to denial - that status alone doesn't mean much. Being Pending AND not be able to modify it might mean something or nothing at all.

Sorry for the incorrect reply above. I was remembering wrong. ;-(

This is a good sign, but not a certainty - hope you win that RU, and receive a confirmation email at least a few days before sailing!

So this morning I just won my very first Royal Up! 

 

The SetSail updated to the new room but luggage tags still say the old room. I called and they told me it can take 48hrs for the new luggage tags to appear, but I sail on Friday

 

What do I do if the luggage tags don't update in time?

Well now, this is a HUGE thread.

 

Can someone give me the (very) abridged version of what this program is, and how/when I might be able to take advantage of it? Just booked a GS GTY on the Wonder for next year, though we wanted an OS (all booked).

 

THANKS,

 

Tom

Some travel agents don't allow their reservations to participate. Mine does but it took 2 business days to work. Not sure how far out it opens but I put a bid in about 60 days out.

No telling when you will hear if your bid is accepted (could be today, could be while you are driving to the port). 

Hopefully that and a little reading will help out. Good luck!

Hi everyone! Just checked my bids for my June 20th sailing. All expired EXCEPT one and it is pending and I can’t adjust the bid. For those of you who successfully had a pending you couldn’t adjust, how long was it before your CC was charged or you received the confirmation email? I KNOW this does not always mean success…just wondering the time line for this scenario. 
 

Others on the same cruise can adjust theirs and their has not expired. My current cabin category is sold out.  
 

Since I have never won a bid, I’m confused….😅

 

Thanks!

How can you check you bids - the only way I found was to go into my confirmation email and click to edit or delete one of the bids and then the others show as pending but it wants you to edit or delete the one you clicked on.

 

i am booked for GTY ocean view room in July on the Serenade It’s a pretty booked cruise though some rooms have opened up since the royalup email so not sure if bids have been accepted or more cabins have been added as they increase capacity. I put in minimum bids for all the balcony and above cabins other that owners suite. I didn’t put bids in for spacious ocean view or ultra spacious ocean view, not sure if I should. I wish I knew what I was getting for my GTY.

Your current room might be much smaller.  Not familiar with cabins on thevship but I would assume ultra spacious ocean view is larger.  Check cabins on YouTube

Maybe you will be get a hint of your cabin assignment from your set sail bar code after you check in for your cruise (45 days out)🤞 if your assignment does not show up in “my cruises” by then.  If so, that is a reasonable time to re-evaluate whether to bid on those options.

Our last cruise was March 12, 2022.  On February 17th one bid showed expired and the second showed pending. The next day, February 18th around 7:30AM the Congrats letter came through and my CC was also already charged. 

You are in a good position and may win your pending bid. Good luck.
