#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?

1. IGT on the Fantasy
2. 11 days before the cruise (Tuesday)
3. 5A #9514
4. I couldn't believe it!
5. n/a
6. Around 52 days

I called DCL to make sure there wasn't a mistake! Even if we hadn't had the upgrade I would have been happy to just be on the ship, but this was the most amazing surprise!

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

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

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
Cat 5A - 9140

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
Location and room are fine. Standard balcony room. Nothing extra special, but nothing wrong with it either. I am actually happier that we are slightly aft than forward as it should be easier getting to the areas that we will travel to the most frequently.

#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
N/A. Only booked 1 room, however, we were assigned a connecting room. Hopefully, this won't be an issue (we are traveling with a 2yo)

#6. How many days before departure date did you book?
I don't recall exactly, but I believe it was between 75-90 days out.

Based on what I've read on this page, 16 days seem to be when I should expect our room assignment.

Can someone clarify...I just changed our reservation this week from inside rm to an ocean view, and here is our status online: stateroom GTY, category 9A. Our cruise is in April. Are our chances good for an upgrade or is this just a guarantee that we'll be in at least a porthole room?

This is just a guarantee that you'll get at least a 9A! We booked my in-laws in a 9A GTY last summer and they got their assignment about 75 days out and sure enough...9A. GTY is different than an OGT (meaning you can get any porthole/outside room)

Ok thanks, now it makes sense. I really just care that we get some natural sunlight, so if it's a porthole in 9A, that's great. it would be different if it were a 7 day cruise, it's only 4 so we'll never be in the room. I don't want it be pitch dark when we wake up in the morning!

We had room 6150 on the Dream and it was awesome! It was quiet and no vibrations. I guess it's a bit further down the hall than 6180, but it was great!
