Any *GT sightings lately?
 
I'm feeling the itch to get back out to sea and was wondering if there were any *GT (prefer VGT but would settle for I or O! LOL!) rates floating around... it's likely the only way i can convince dh to take a last minute cruise.

Last year we snagged a VGT in March for a May (Mother's Day) sailing on the Fantasy and it was amazing! I'm thinking we need to do it again. preferably soon (but possibly not)! :cool1:

I haven't seen any recently but I'm watching for the *GT rates also!

April 27 fantasy. I'm hoping my insurance $$ comes quick. I think we will try that one!

Thanks! Lets see what the accountant says when we do our taxes on Friday!

Gigi 1313, I just emailed my travel agent for the same thing! Told her to keep an eye out! Dh will totally go if we get a good rate! We like *GT rates since we prefer to book late and its kinda exciting and fun waiting to see what room we get assigned (we r not picky)! We did VGT for the Dream last May (also booked in March). What rate did u pay for *GT rate on the Fantasy last May???

I have a terrible memory, but there were five of us, 2 in VGT/3 in IGT, and our total was around $4500, inc insurance.

Sry new to this term. What is gt, igt, vgt? I think I am understanding it's a discount.

Yes, they are discounted rates, usually show up after the pay-in-full date, and they come with some heavy restrictions... But they are well worth it if you can snag one that works for you!

The first initial determines type of room... IGT=inside Guarantee, OGT=ocean view guarantee, VGT=verandah guarantee.

And, what is the paid in full date please? So for these rates come out for rooms not booked, kinds of like a "last minute sail sale" thing? Thanks.

MDennis28 02-21-2013 01:31 AM

And, how do you find the dated and rates that become available? Do you get an on-board credit with them?

Bear3412 02-21-2013 02:04 AM

This may help. Read, then ask again please. :goodvibes

what was your Dream rate last May and what type of stateroom, how many days, etc? My kids want to go back on the Fantasy (who wouldn't?!) but the Dream may suit our schedule better :)
