All Balconies gone a year in advance?!?

Hi! How can all the balconies and suites be gone a year in advance? What are the chances these will open up? Is it better to book an OV and try to upgrade or wait and see if a balcony becomes available? Now that they are unrefundable deposits, is there less chance of future availability?

Re: All Balconies gone a year in advance?!?

I have the same cruise booked for January of 2020. Made my reservation in June 2018 and suites were gone within days of my booking. Not sure when the balconies sold out but they are all gone now.

I prefer RC and when we decide on a destination I start watching for the release of new cruises which is about 18 months in advance of departure date to book our suite because they sell out within days.
