View Full Version : GTY vs. a spefic cabin

05-26-2004, 11:13 AM
I am not clear on why someone would book a GTY vs. requesting a specific cabin when booking. We have always requested a cabin and I am wondering if there is an advantage to booking a cat. with no specific cabin.

Supposedly the chances of an upgrade are better with a GTY reservation.

and it is supposed to be a little cheaper.

Can't speak for every cruise, but there hasn't been any difference in price whenever I've asked.

There are some cruises (next year's Magic "repos," for instance) that DCL is now only booking gtys (gives them more flexibility approaching sell outs). I also seem to recall that Cat. 12's are only booked gty.

As for upgrades...there are reports from both assigned and gty folks who have received them. It appears that the common factor here has something to do with pixie dust...

I have never asked for a specific cabin but have always been assigned one anyway.

I booked my upcoming Nov 4 cruise back January 2003. I paid it off in September 2003 and I got an upgrade about a month ago from category 8, cabin 7014 to Category 5, cabin 7034!!!!!

So who knows why I got an upgrade and SO early too but I'm not complaining!!:teeth:
