Last week, we booked a 5e GTY on the Dream for 5/2...getting anxious for our room. While an upgrade would be nice, I just want a room number, (almost!) any room number, so I can stop thinking about it. :P

I booked an 11c rate for November 2013 on the Magic because on the website it was showing a special rate but when I went to look at my stateroom it states it is a gty. I usually sail in a deluxe oceanview but since this is an extra cruise that we are doing just for the price/our anniversary I dont care what room I get. But, I guess I will have a LONG wait to see what my room will be!

H, I booked category 10 GTY deluxe inside stateroom. I received my cruise documents last week and received category 5C Deluxe outside stateroom with verandah!!!

I set sail on March 30th on the Fantasy!

I was nervous about booking a GTY stateroom, but after this awesome upgrade, I would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Does anyone know if you can request a change after your GTY room has been assigned? I would not be thrilled with this room because it does not have a bathtub, and DD (3.5) hates taking showers. I am also 5E GTY on the Dream, so one of these tubless rooms is a possibility.

Nope. That's the point of GTY. You are guaranteed that category of room or better. We had 5E GTY for the Fantasy booked and got 4D #6644.

2 yrs ago we booked 11a GTY room on Magic and we were upgrade to 9C midship cabin (the best location EVER!!). We are sailing on fantasy on June 1 and we booked 11C GTY room again and I'm crossing my fingers for an upgrade!! We just paid in full 2 days ago so we probably won't find out til April or May....

Awesome!!! I have a girls cruise booked on the Dream for the special 7A GTY rate so we are very eager to see where we end up. It seems they are all decent, except deck 5 so fingers crossed!

Thanks for sharing,
Heather

Actually, that's not true. Two weeks ago, I was a GTY 9A status waiting for my assignment. I got a 9A, but in a HC room, that I didn't need. I called, and they allowed me to change to a 8D with a 16.00 upgrade fee. I did so gladly.

Correct. We actually changed the 07A to an 05B - then again to an 05A - all online.

We have been assigned Room 8042, which is a Cat5e (Deluxe Oceanview with Veranda), right next to the forward stairs/elevators. Haven't found much on this specific room, but we're pretty happy with what we've learned. I think this room has an oversized veranda. So glad the anticipation is over!

We are 50ish days out, but I'm not sure when it was assigned. My leaves-much-to-be-desired TA didn't alert us, so I finally went and looked myself last night.
