Please remember that there are two threads going. This one for IGT, OGT and VGT assignments and another thread for REGULAR GTY assignments which is listed below.

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT, Dream, 2/28/13
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 70
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 6B, #7686
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Very happy. Deck 7 Aft, which is pretty much what we wanted.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 82

I decided to post just because mine doesn't seem to fit the pattern. I was checking rates online and was offered the VGT rate. Seemed like a good price, so I booked it. I was expecting to have to wait until closer to the cruise to get the room assignment. However, it was there when I logged into the DCL website a week after the PIF date ... I guess maybe someone didn't pay in full?

You sure you booked a VGT rate and not a GTY ? They are still offering IGT/OGT/VGT for this cruise - *GT rates NEVER come out before PIF...

#6. How many days before departure date did you book? about 65 days

The ship only shows a few available rooms and I'm still homeless. I am totally out of my comfort zone...no plans and no control.

**edited to add** it sold out yesterday. Yikes! I've never cruised on a sold out ship.

18 days until my sailing... Dying to get my assignment. Booked a VGT on the Dream and from what I am reading here it seems people are generally pleased with their rooms. Stupid question: do we get an email or something or do I need to just keep checking my online reservation??

You need to keep checking. I am waiting for 2/24/13 Dream. Just booked a VGT on Jan 20th. I figured about on the 11th or 12th it will be assigned.

Maybe things have changed recently, but we booked a VGT for a Feb 2012 cruise on the Dream 90 days out. It was definitely a VGT, not a GTY. We ended up with a cat 4E.

Sorry, didn't see this until today. I'm pretty sure it was VGT ... That's what it said on my reservation confirmation.

I am waiting on a VGT for a cruise 15 days from today, I keep checking my online reservation daily for an update.. that is what I would keep doing to see what you get for an assignment.. It should show you once they assign you a cabin!

I hope I can ask this here.

Do they ever offer VGT rates for Alaskan cruises?
Also, do these rates come out only after the PIF date?

Thanks so much,
Lori
