Also received this info:

For the payment, we can either send you an online payment link or can settle upon arrival. Kindly bear in mind that the same cancellation policy will apply for the upgrade charges as well.

So can cancel up to 15 days prior to stay, at least for my stay.

Based on what Iíve read here, I was moderately concerned about privacy and views depending on which RV you get. Its our first time going to Maldives, went ahead and opted for OWV for the full experience and of course pay upon arrival.
The big privacy issues are related to the beach villas. The reef villas are very private. We spent 6 days in a garden and have been in a reef for 4 days. Once you are inside the gates or your reef villa you can not tell if it is reef or fully OW. I was glad we saved the money and only opted for the reef upgrade.

PS..we saw about 20 dolphins from our room yesterday!
