Can you Royal UP from a GTY? Currently have a XB Balc GTY


Yeah, I was booked in a JS Guarantee back in December. After my stateroom was assigned (J3) , I received a Royal Up offer for a Grand, Owners, and a few others.

Not sure if you’ll get one if your stateroom hasn’t been assigned yet?

On the Anthem tomorrow ... my Royal Up bids still say pending ... they were for the max amount .. at what point do I just assume they are not going to happen?

I'm curious about this as well. We have a GTY balcony for our Anthem cruise in May. We received a Royal Up email offer the other day. The email says our current stateroom is an "Ocean View Balcony", but thats it. We're 70 days out and our cruise planner information just shows GTY for stateroom. Is it possible we have been assigned a cabin, we've just not been updated?

Others have reported similar situations.  They have booked a guarantee and see that a deck has been assigned, but no specific stateroom.  Some here have speculated that this is a way to stop people from asking to change GTY assignments.

Spacious refers to the stateroom size.

I am in a 1C but thought we were getting an ultra spacious , which I am now figuring out is a 1A. I could care a less about the larger balcony but would like a bigger cabin on Symphony. If given the chance to bid, I have yet to get any emails ever, would you gamble that bid. No junior suites were available at booking (50th cruise).

Does symphony have a category for spacious balcony?   Anthem doesn’t that I’ve seen. Yet they offered it to me via Royal Up.  I’d personally go for suite or better

No, I actually didn’t bid on the spacious balcony because of the person you think of.  I don’t sail until May 🙂

Not sure this is entirely true.  I've read posts where a pax got their upgrade email day of sail.

I'm in a 2D on the April 20 anthem and got an invite to bid for 

Grand Suite ($400 and up) , Junior Suite ($200 and up)  or Spacious Ocean View Balcony ($100 and up)
 

 

I don't know if it's worth it .. I"m traveling with my teen son so -- it's just the two of us.

Fingers crossed for you!  I expect you'll get an email one way or another by tonight at the latest - what does your set sail pass say?

One of our friend's guaranty booking is showing a deck on their eDocs and a muster station on their Set Sail pass for the cruise we are going on next month but it still shows as a XB guarantee as their cabin number. Even their luggage tag shows a sector the cabin is in but no cabin number as shown in the shot below.

At least they know where approximately their cabin is.

We're curious to see when RC will actually give them their cabin number.

also just checked my luggage tag, those read pending

 

Don't read too much in to it but could be a good sign.  I expect however since your Set Sail still says original room you are staying where you booked!

I've been reading through this trying to figure out the big deal from the very first post.  What would upper management say that is different from the information offered here?  I don't see the issue or problem.  Life happen and Royal has a back up plan if plans change, which makes sense.
