So bobbie0253, you went from an IGT to an oceanview with verandah. That is a sweet upgrade. I booked an IGT on the 11/10/12 Magic out of Galveston about a month ago. Prices are still cheap for that cruise, so not sure about an upgrade. Just happy to be on the Magic for sure. I am hoping my previous 3 sailings on DCL will help.

Yep We booked an IGT. We tend to sail RCCL a lot and have never once gotten an upgrade with a GTY booking. This was a nice surprise

Wow, you both got amazing upgrades, and on the same cruise too!! Hoping for your amount of pixie dust when ours is allocated.

It will be interesting to see if there is a pattern on CC level, we are Gold, and will be at 9 cruises soon. I can imagine Disney going "oh they'll come back again whatever, lets put them on Deck 1 between the engines, the crew quarters and the loading bay"!!

We have 2 VGT booked for Oct. 4 Dream and no cabin # 10 days out. I thought for sure we would get them today! We are platinum for those keeping track. Thanks to all who contribute to this thread.

Thanks timmbco! You made me feel better. We have vgt on 10/20 fantasy and had a room number assigned but then added our dd and our assignment disappeared! I have been freaking out but they must be slow to assign now.

Look on the red bar on top for staterooms, there is a link to room reports where you can input the number and look for reviews.

*The room is on the same deck and side, 8 doors down from our stateroom on our last cruise. Perhaps DCL noticed a pattern since our 4 previous cruises with them have been 5C forward on the port side?!
