Otherwise I should have just upgraded to the room at full price because it was still showing available on the web page. But I really wanted to go from Sky class to Star class. In your case, add up what you are going to or would pay for Deluxe dinning and drink packages, voom, prepaid gratuities etc., on the Crown loft and then add all of the stuff that is included with the Star Loft and Star Class and then make a bid. Let me say like a lot of other on here, once you've done Star Class it is hard to go back to a regular room. This is a sound approach. I couldn't agree more with the idea that if you cannot get it at a discount you would have been better off just paying for the upgrade yourself, originally. I also agree that it is hard to pass up Star Class once you have done it. There is a WORLD of difference between a Crown Loft and a Star Loft. Not just the size of the suite but what all comes with it. The Star Class accommodations on Symphony are VERY pricey. If you can manage to get an upgrade for a discount, I would say, go for it. Nothing lost if it doesn't materialize. 12thman and tiny260 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
