Oops! I will update that. I just got it today. I meant to put 10 days. Everyone said they were getting assignments 12 days out. It's amazing how long these last 2 days felt just waiting and waiting!

**Interesting Update FYI** I just checked my reservation online today...haven't really checked it for a little while after getting my VGT assignment. DCL had changed our assigned room it's now a category 5A and instead of being on deck 8 it's on deck 9. So even after you get your room assignment it seems that they can change your stateroom up until you're at port we sail in 2 days.

We just booked a VGT on the Fantasy for the 6/16 sailing
We were assigned 7608/7610. I believe cat 4C
We are beyond thrilled since we are a family of
five and were hoping to at least be on the same
deck ----now we are CONNECTING!! Yeah!!
We booked 14 days in advance. Yikes--better
start packing!!

Please include:

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
#6. How many days before departure date did you book?

I think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...
Yay! I can finally post info on this thread (since I'm the OP)!!!

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?3 VGT rooms on the Fantasy
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?15 days, (on a Friday!) June 16th sailing
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?8024, 8026, 8028 all cat 5b
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?We are very happy!
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?Yep! Three in a row
#6. How many days before departure date did you book?We booked two of our rooms at 100 days out and the third at 60
