Thanks!
Well, I am in the same position as I have 2640 which is the same cabin on the opposite side of the ship and am worried about the noise from the thrusters, stablizers, etc. as well. I had called and asked to change, but they said there's nothing they can do. Hopefully, it won't be too bad and we both have great cruises!

Still waiting...I was really thinking today would be the day since we're 15 days out and apparently Monday is one of the "the" days assignments tend to happen. I'll keep checking throughout the day and post back.

We are sailing on 8/11 Fantasy (12 days out) and people from our meet are starting to get assignments, so they've started anyways. Not sure how long it could take. Still haven't gotten ours yet, but trying to wait patiently!!

We are on the 8/11 Fantasy. Got excited when I saw that we had consecutive numbers. Bummed out a bit when I realized that we had connecting rooms---BUT not with each other!! Then I thought we could just connect the verandahs (the reason why we booked vgt instead of ogt or igt) BUT found out that on deck 10 only that there is a solid white partition and only the connecting rooms can connect verandahs. So we are right next door to each other but in no way connecting with each other, just with strangers! Called Costco who called Disney but of course, no changes. Happy we are right next door to one another but bummed about connecting with others and not our kids!!!

OMG I would be in a panic. I'm on 8/25 Fantasy and there are rooms left in every category. Hope that means I'll get a good upgrade.

I'm in the same boat. We're on the 8/10 Dream and I thought for sure our VGT assignment would be out today. Still checking. I've heard that sometimes they don't post until after 3 pm. I'm going nuts waiting. Argh.

UPDATE !! Just got our assignments. We're 11 days out. We got connecting verandahs on the 9th deck. So happy. !!!

Thanks Heather. Hopefully they will have yours out soon. If you are 14 days out, then I would hope they don't make you wait until next Monday for your assignment because that would put you about 8 days out (cutting it kinda close) Hopefully you will get yours sooner than that. You will have to update us when you get it. Good luck

Got our room assignment today at 45 days out by lunchtime. We had an 8A gty booked for 9/15 sailing on the Fantasy. We got 8186 which is a 6A I believe. We booked the 8A room because we wanted the extra room inside, no verandah (3 year old that can't be trusted) and not aft (husband gets sick).

Well we got a nice upgrade that hits all the criteria we wanted to avoid! It looks like an interesting room as it is on the back of the boat and has an extended verandah - which also means it has a smaller room! Oh well. If you book gty that's what can happen.

Our travel agent (who is probably about to kill us) has been wonderful and did call DCL to see what could be done, but all the Oceanview rooms are assigned.

Originally we were booked in a 5B beside 2 other rooms with family. Just looked and the other room flanking their rooms is open so I think we will go back to that. Additional cost of $327 but at this point it doesn't matter anymore! I'll never hear the end of it from my husband.

Nope - those rooms are NOT smaller. 8186 is a beautifully nice Cat 5E; you are thinking of the 4E rooms on deck 5 have smaller rooms with large verandas. We adore those aft rooms - those verandas are huge.

A note about the verandah & your 3 year old. The way the aft rooms are constructed, the railing is curved inward. I'll bet your child can stand under it even (our 5 year old can). I think they would be a better bet than a regular verandah. Check out pics of 9674 here, which similarly to what 8186 would resemble. http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=137

Also, I don't know where that seasick stuff comes from - I think the ships motion is similar all over......if he's going to get sick, he's going to get sick (and I hope he doesn't!!!).
