Upsell Offer Opinion Sought

Recommended Posts

We just received and offer for an upsell on the Royal from an inside to a deluxe balcony for $119 per person or a standard balcony for $139 per person. We don't mind insides, as we rather cruise more often. But wondering if anyone thought that was a good deal or not. Or should we hold out for a better offer or skip it altogether. We are on the Royal's first sailing to Mexico at the end of March if that makes any difference to anyone's opinion. 

 

Thank You,

 Kayla

I don't find that to be such a great deal - I would take a pass.  I also would question why the deluxe balcony is less than the standard

Thanks for the opinions and suggestions! We took the standard. Reason being that the deluxe is in the front of the ship making the balcony unusable while at sea due to winds. If we're going to be in a balcony we want to go out on it at all times of day and night. 

 

Thsnks again, Kayla

I think you got a wonderful bargain for a 7 day cruise.

(And I think it was a good decision to take the standard - an unusable balcony is worthless.)

Make sure you have breakfast out there one morning!

If the upsell is to L- or M-101-104, it is a larger room with a huge balcony. I would jump on that in a heartbeat.

I would have taken the deluxe - those balconies are huge!  And the wind really isn't an issue.....we always try to book those.
