Last Minute Upsells?

Recommended Posts

We've been offered the option to bid for upsells but don't like the idea of not knowing the exact cabin. Is there any time you can buy an upsell and know the specific cabin assignment? Or will you just be offered the current booked rate prices to pick a room?

The current RoyalUP program does not have the option to pick specific staterooms.

So they aren't even offered like in the last 48 hours with actual room assignments?

 

 

No.  You submit your bid when you get the email, and if and when your bid is accepted, your credit card is charged and you are told your cabin number.

The self-upgrade fairy will take your money at any time.

 

Plenty of discussions already about this here:

How do you get the e-mail to start with do you have to sign up?

If you have opted in to receive Royal marketing then you may get the offer or you may not.  Many variables at play as to who they send the offers to.

No, but you have have your preferences in your Crown and Anchor account set to receive promotional emails from Royal.
