Upgrading cabins, do it onboard or at booking, what's the cheapest ?

Subject explains it all really. I will deffo have to go across shortly as I'm getting pissed off having to fork out nearly £65 every week for bacci + papers/filters etc. Ticket will prolly come to over £300 but as I only tend to go once a year and bring back 12kg, the saving is nearly three and half grand.

Just thought I may as well do it in style in a club cabin http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Any suggestions ?

I usually upgrade to a premium Outer Cabin and has allways Cost a Extra Tenner each way. Onboard i think its £20 quid.
if you do it onbaord you cant leave anything in the room as it may not be yours on the return trip.

Cheers Gaz. Just got to see what the cheapest booking day/website combination is now. Strangely enough, using P&O (crap site admittedly) + quidco still seems to work out the cheapest http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png

Last time I went on (about 3weeks ago)  it cost me £50 to upgrade to club cabin on board, and it was worth it

\yeah i would be interested to find that out as well coz the difference between basic 2-berth and club double bed is about £80 each way when booked online. You get the convenience of leaving your stuff in the cabin for the return trip of course.

According to mrs eezy who has radar hearing, when she has stood at the information desk and people have been enquiring, she has overheard a figure of £50 one way and if you upgrade on board you cannot advance book the return upgrade. Therefore you cannot leave luggage in your upgrade cabin for the return.

All third hand so don't take it as gospel. Maybe worth a phone call to P&O or even easier, ask on their facebook page, that usually gets a quick response.

That's right,  £50 each Way, and you can't book both ways, but you do get to keep your original cabin too lol

'Cos I've got nothing better to do at the minute, sitting here waiting for the double glazing guys http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
 just did a spoof booking with Direct Ferries with a 2 berth Club cabin and it adds 90 quid for a return journey. Total £329-50.

Didn't know you could get a 2B Club cabin, thought they were 4 or 5 berth?

After looking for ages, trying to get an idea of the best prices, I noticed that there are double bed clubs that come as 2,3,4 or 5 berth.

Must admit I didn't know that either.
