Princess Stateroom Upgrade oOfer


Recommended Posts

We are looking at hopefully being able to travel to Alaska late next Aug, or early Sept. Does the Princess Stateroom Upgrade offer allow an upgrade from a Mini-Suite to a Club Mini-Suite? Does it allow an upgrade from a Balcony to a Mini-Suite?

If you decide to book an inside, you choose any inside for the same price.

If you decide to book a balcony, you can choose any balcony on the ship for the same price.

If you want a Club Class mini, you'll need to book a CC mini...not much room for choice.

Thanks...I guess I was looking for an explanation somewhat similar to this as opposed to the snide comment Chrysalis decided to share. Sorry for my inability to decipher this explanation from the "fine print". It appears Princess includes Club Mini in the pricing of Mini cabins on their room choices when doing an online dummy, hence why I was curious if I could book a Mini- and upgrade to a Club.

I found Chrysalis not snide but informative. They took the time to copy and paste for your benefit. Princess does not include club mini's at the regular mini's pricing they are different links you must click on. Instead of dissing someone who tried to help you why not state the fine print wasn't clear to you?   Lesson learned from you is not to try to answer your questions.

No.

If you look at the pricing for the categories, for example a balcony, you will see that the fare is the same for cat. BF as it is for BA. This is the upgrade. Book a BA for the same price as a BF. If you look at a premium balcony cabin you'll find higher fares. These are the cabins excluded from the offer. It's the same for interiors, outside view and mini suites.

Okay..... the fine print wasn’t clear to me. And on Princesses web site, there are 5 cabin categories, of which Club is not one. Club is accessed by clicking on Mini Suites, hence why I wasn’t sure if Club was considered an upgrade within the Mini category. I should have explained my lack of familiarity with Princesses cabin structure within my first post I guess.....

Yes, that is a reasonable assumption.  Sadly, they won't allow that.  Club class is really a great option.  However, you can book a specialty restaurant for every evening, oftentimes, with a regular mini for less than the club class pricing.  If you want a fabulous mini suite on the Grand and Crown class ships, try to the ones on the Emerald deck on either side of the ship.  They are covered and the two end ones have huge balconies.  I believe they are E728 and E729 on the Grand class ships and E730 and E731 on the Crown class ships.  You are at the very aft of the ship so, they will most likely be some vibration and movement in heavier seas.  But, otherwise, these two rooms are great if club class doesn't fit into your travel budget.

Friends have been upgraded from a regular mini-suite into the location of a Club Class mini-suite.  They got the location but it didn't come with the Club Class perks.

 

This has happened to us on a couple of occasions, Upgraded Mini location of Club Class Mini, but no Club Class perks...

Your assumption of mini suites wasn't wrong it was your not appreciating someone's effort to search and paste for YOU.

I would find any of the situations, strange.  I’d people had not posted that it happened to them, I would have found it hard to believe.  When someone is upgraded to a Club Class mini suite or a full suite,  I would think it would difficult for Princess to “remove” the benefits of those categories.  (Except for the bonus points for booking the category).

I have taken upsells in the past from mini suites to full suites and have always gotten all the suite perks. Yes I had to pay a little but it was usually a minimal amount. Much less than the advertised price for the suite
