#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
OGT, Disney Fantasy, September 15th

#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
11

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
05D (Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah)

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
Happy for the upgrade

#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
NO! One was assigned as the last room all the way aft and the other almost all the way forward. That part was a big disappointment. DCL could have cared less too. :/

#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 15

Sorry you were disappointed.

If you don't mind, do you mind sharing the details of your party? Is your party separate families or a single family split across decks? (Are you all at least on the same deck?)

I ask because we are a family of five, booked in two separate rooms and really, really hoping to be in connecting rooms. Called DCL before booking and was told our reservations are linked and should be close, no guarantees of course, but connecting rooms are likely since DH is in one room with one DS and I'm in another room with other DS and DD.

Hope you enjoy the upgrade and have a great trip!

We are on the same deck. Our family make up is....Room #1: Upgraded room all the way forward is me, dh, dd's x 2. The 2nd room is my mom by herself ( another slap in the face since now DCL charges a full 200% for a single person traveling alone, but that is another story ) and that one is the furthest aft as possible. We are linked together. This is the worst space assignment we have ever received. There were the same room type right above and right below the room we were assigned (we are on deck 6 and there were rooms on both deck 5 & 7 right above and below) but DCL would not switch the room. It is the chance that we took booking the GTY rates, I know that. Honestly it is not the end of the world for us but it is disappionting. For your family however something like this would not be good at all. Maybe they thought we wanted to be away from my mom! lol JK Good luck! Hoping that you get connecting rooms!!

We booked VGT rooms and put my oldest in with my mom as it was cheaper overall. Of course, we have 3 kids so that may be part of it, but Look into that next time.

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? OGT 9C, Magic, November 3
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 57
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 9B Cabin: 207X (Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom)
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? I am happy, its a mid-ship cabin and I am glad it's not in front of a laundry room or elevator.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 63

Sounds like you booked a 9C GTY? The OGT has no category designation. It's just OGT.

Congrats on your upgrade from 9C to 9B!

Woo Hoo - finally my time to update:

1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
VGT, Wonder Sept 23rd Pacific Coast Cruise

2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
13

3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
6634 - 7A Navigator's Verandah

4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
I would have prefered a 5, but we wanted to try a Navigator's Verandah so this might be the perfect cruise for it. So I am not unhappy. I'm still very pleased with the price we paid for it.

5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
NA

6. How many days before departure date did you book? about 6 months
