hello lovely fellow cruise mates, my husband and I are sailing on Celebrity Constellation on Jan 2nd next year (super excited 🛳😊. Anyway the company have just offered us the chance to bid for a ‘MoveUp ‘ to improve our stateroom. We’ve booked an Ocean View stateroom . Has anyone experienced this offer - is it worth trying and what are our chances. Thanks in advance for your help and advise. 🙏😊

Best of luck! Hope you get a wonderful cabin!

That’s fantastic, well done you 👍😊


Thank you 😊

I was tempted to bid, but it seemed like no deal if you had to bid high to get a chance, but for me the biggest gamble is where I may end up. There are certain places I don't want to be and I've often wondered if the rooms available are in less desirable areas and that's why they're available? But I have no experience in winning a bid, so it may not be that way at all.

sometimes they are but sometimes they are prime cabins vacated by others that either had to cancel for various reasons or they themselves moved up to nicer digs. It really is a crap shoot.


They usually are. If you do not care, you might be ok.


im Rosa from state , I will love to have a little word with you if you care

We're about 68 days out, booked in an aft Aqua Class cabin with a larger than normal balcony on the Summit. It's a cabin that has mixed reviews as it's sandwiched between the Movies on the Terrace and the Sunset Bar.

My thinking on Move up is to bid the minimum bid, since if we won, we'd be in a suite, which even if it wasn't an ideal location, neither is the cabin we'd be giving up and if we lose, we'd still be in a cabin we originally chose.

I gather from the comments here that minimum bids aren't likely winners, but you never know. The combination of someone else willing to pay top dollar for the cabin we're in, could make my bid more competitive, even though I bid the minimum.

That's my theory anyway and I'm going to test it out, because either way, I feel like I'll be happy with the outcome.
