My wife and I have a balcony stateroom, category BC on the starboard side of the ship. It is aboard the Coral Princess. Since this is an Alaska cruise, I didn't want port side because it would not face the mainland since this is a one way north bound cruise. I was asked if I wanted to be listed for an upgrade and said no. They would not limit the upgrade to starboard side only. I would think that many upgrades would be to the port side since it is not the more popular of the two sides. Am I mistaken in thinking this is an important feature? Am I missing an opportunity by saying no upgrade. What would they give me from a category BC?
