We just booked Oasis Balcony Guarantee and saves about $50.

Cabin location is not a big deal for us,

But it got me thinking,  What is the benefit for Royal to even offer these.

I'm sure it advantageous for them or why bother.

Any thoughts

It gives them longer/more flexibility to assign a cabin, and allows for them to also wait and assign when there are late cancellations.  We typically pay more for a GTY cabin than a bid on RoyalUp, so they make more money.

 

We have a GTY cabin for this fall booked. We’ve done this before and been pleased with our assignments. 🙂

Until you check in your cabin can be pulled and swapped. Gives them flexibility in rearranging for groups or for the Royal up program.

While it can happen that is extremely rare.  Once assigned the cabin assigned is in all likelihood the cabin that you will be in OBC board.  I see that happening in cases of very unusual circumstances and not at all to do with rearranging groups or for the Royal up program.
