well I thought that would be me, because I honestly will be perfectly happy with the category I booked! But I feel like I just want to know, and my excitement is making me slightly crazy

I feel the same way- fine with what we have- but I also want to just know where we are going to be...

We have cruised other lines (DH and I) but this is our first DCL and with kids- so I figure we'll learn for next time- no matter what this time may be.

And honestly- we booked so late- I was just happy to have even the guarantee offered in our room preference.

We are going on the August 19th 5 Night Bahamian on the Dream and have an IGT Stateroom, we are 48 days out right now, so maybe we will get an assignment soon, they are not even selling GTY cabins at the moment anymore, so I am kind of glad I hopped on it when I did! Will let everyone know when I get my assignment!

My TA had us select our stateroom location and there is a stateroom number already assigned on the reservation. Can we still be upgraded? We didn't request to not be moved.

I was hoping for something ANYWHERE but forward but I'm glad that there will be rooms below and above our cabin. The only inside cabin we could actually choose when I booked was in front of the Teen Club and that was out of the question.

I hope the rest of you don't have to wait long as well.
We are 12/1 on the Fantasy as well, we are still waiting though for our room to be assigned we are a Cat 7a GTY. We are somewhat in different about the Cat 7a becaue we gave up a great Cat 8d room on our Nov cruise for and this was all we could get. We just wanted the extra space and the port hole window to sit in. If we stay in this Cat we are ok with it.

It's odd that you got your assignment so soon, maybe you didn't get upgraded because there are none of those Cat 9-6 rooms left on that sailing. Maybe there is still hope or maybe you can call them and see if they can place you in another 11A not in the front. We had deck 2 midship on the dream and it was heaven.

We are on the NYC 2-night leaving on July 13 and, at 10 days out, I still don't have a room assignment. We are in a 9C GTY. I hope we hear soon. If we are upgraded to a balcony, my DH might consider going, but I have a feeling we won't and we are so close, there may not be room in our muster station anyway. Oh well - DS4 and I will have fun no matter where we are!

Us too-- waiting on a VGT for 8/5 Dream as well!

Hard not to keep checking... but I also read on another thread that even after a cabin number appears, it can change again before sailing-- anyone else heard of that happening?
