I just wanted to say thank you to all that have posted. I was checking everyday for my assignment thinking it would surely be there by now. Now I see the majority of people didn't get assigned until 10-12 days. Now I'll relax about it until I'm at 12 days.

I agree a clear plexiglass would've been better, but I liked the bench.

The only time we had vibrations from docking was in Ensenada cuz we backed in. That woke me up...mostly because of the shaking. Now, the down side....our second night at sea was a tad rocky and the room creaked soooo bad. It was loud. I was up half the night. When you get in there you will see people folded pieces of paper and stuck them between the wall and the ceiling. We added two more by the verandah door cuz it rattled so bad. It stopped once I added a couple more shims. I have only ever done Carnival and I can say I never had a room make so much noise. Sooo that may be of some concern on the way out to Hawaii. Friends of ours had a midship room on deck 6 and they had the same creaking problem. Otherwise, would I book this room again? Yes! Great location.

Btw, if you happen to find a gold Winnie the Pooh earring, please let me know. My daughter lost it in there somewhere.

Have a great time and enjoy!

I stayed in this room for 2 weeks. I loved it and will be booking a 7A again. Loved the bench and the protection from the wind and cold. It was extremely noisy the first 2 nights. The rattling in the ceiling kept me awake. I talked to guest services and they had maintenance do major work on the ceiling. Completely fixed the problem. For our troubles they put Cars themed sheets the rest of the trip and have me a DCL robe to use. Also the deck manager constantly checked in to make sure things remained ok. Nice little touches. Very appreciated.

Was hoping for at least an ocean view since it seemed like that cruise wasn't selling well and we are previous DCL cruisers. It's all good, we are on the boat.

We still have not gotten a room assignment for the 11/8 Dream cruise, even though people on later cruises have :-( Has anyone else on the 11/8 cruise been assigned a room yet?

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Happy with the location at first but after sailing we found out that there was a pantry door right beside our cabin and every morning like clockwork starting at 7am loud banging began. It was the pantry door slamming shut every few mins. Didn't ruin our cruise by far but I would not purposely book this cabin again!
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? NA
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 18

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? IGT, Dream

#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
Only three days before!!!

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 11A, Room 8083

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
Mostly happy--It's midship and not directly near large public areas like clubs and stuff. It is a little close to the elevators for my taste though, and it appears to be a connecting room, which we didn't want.

#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
N/A

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

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...
#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room? VGT Wonder
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 13
#3. What category did you get (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever)? 5A 7536
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?Miship Area-Port. Looks great to me
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6- How many days before departure date did you book ? 33

One thing I noticed is that a family of 4 or more will never get put in a 7A on the Magic/Wonder because they sleep 3. I don't know about the new ships or the other verandah cats. We are a family of 2 and were assigned a 7A on the Wonder. I actually loved it and will always book it on the classic ships if its available.
