Guarantee only for 2 but quads available

Recommended Posts

We recently booked a Med cruise for summer 2019.  We are in a quad cabin my TA was able to book us as DD prefers the pull down vs the sofa bed.  We have friends that are now interested in booking, but double occupancy is guarantee only.  The quads on either side of us are open. They have been able to book a quad next to us in the past, but never when it was showing guarantee only.  Would our TA be able to get Celebrity to book them in one of the quads?

Most likely not - "revenue management" has  taken to blocking all rooms that can hold triple/quad from allowing cabin assignment for double on certain sailings (summer vacy school hols, etc).  If they book a gty and are later assigned a cabin, the travel agent can ask to have them moved to an open cabin in the category they were assigned (if there are any).  The key here being the category assigned, not booked.  If sailing is still under booking occupancy restriction they may not be allowed to move, even if open triples/quads avail.  This is a HUGE issue on the Millie, Connie, Infinity and Summit where MOST rooms can accommodate more than 2 ..... total PITA for clients, but CHA wants the 3rd/4th guest revenue on as many bookings as they can get!
