GTY Assignment Question

I'm six days out from my sailing of March 2 on the Fantasy, and still have no room assignment. Just wondering if I would have to wait until the day I get to the port to get the assignment. I have read on the board that GTY usually get the assignments before the OGT, VGT rates. What was the latest you have been assign a room?

Have you checked your reservation online? That's where most people find out the assignment, I don't think it's sent to you otherwise. If still unassigned, I guess it'll be a fun surprise at the port!

Enjoy your cruise!

Personally, I prefer a GTY. I seem to get an upgrade moreso without an assigned room than if I had one and they needed upgrades.

We got our assignment about 45 days prior to our cruise last year. I was surprised, because I didn't expect to get it until a week or two before the cruise....or even at the port!

A guarantee room can be assigned at any time from booking date to embarkation day. That being said, regular GTY assignments tend to show up around 30-45 days out, where the last minute *GT assignments are about 2 weeks out.

Our first cruise, we didn't find out our room number until we got to the port.
