What cruiser wouldn’t love the opportunity of upgrading their cabin at a reasonable price! Maybe that means moving out of an inside cabin into a light-filled ocean view cabin or gaining that extra outdoor space by moving up to a balcony cabin. Or perhaps you are already booked in a balcony cabin but would welcome the opportunity of stepping up to a mini-suite or even a full suite!
Beginning in February many Norwegian Cruise Line guests will get that chance when the cruise line begins to roll out its new program, Upgrade Advantage! Upgrade Advantage offers guests the opportunity to bid a nominal amount to be upgraded to a higher category stateroom. Guests are selected and sent a pre-cruise email inviting them to bid based on a variety of criteria including, but not limited to what they already paid and the type of staterooms available on their specific sailing.
Guest can be upgraded any time after they place a bid and they will immediately receive a confirmation email. Guests can modify or cancel their offer up to 48 hours prior to departure given that the offer has not yet been accepted. Accepted bids are final and cannot be altered or refunded. If the guest does not win the bid, they will receive an email notifying them 2 days prior to sail date. It is important to note that upgrade bids are not combinable with any other promotions.
Norwegian Cruise Line will be launching the program on the Escape, Breakaway, Getaway, Epic and Pride of America followed by remainder of the fleet by the end summer 2017.
