Sounds like so far people are getting great VGTs!
It could be a 7a and most seem to be getting 4's or 5.

We have a B2B VGTY coming up in July so I hope we get a good assignment.

Could we add 'day of the week' for assignment to these cabins? I don't know about the other ships, but it seems like most Fantasy GT cabins are being assigned on the second-last Monday before the cruise (i.e. 12 days out). I'm wondering if Monday is the big day for cabin assignments, or if each ship has a different day,, or if it's just '12 days before next sailing' or what.
