I had been checking DCL's site a couple of times a week to see what was happening with September rates, and I saw that the price had gone down just a bit for my sailing. When I looked more closely, I saw that the cruise fare was the same, but the port charges were a little lower. A few days later, I got an e-mail from DCL "confirming" our cruise. The e-mail reflected the lower balance due to the reduced port charges. If I had not seen the change on DCL's site, I'm not sure I would have been able to figure out what was going on from the e-mail! I did book directly through DCL for this cruise, so I'm not sure how you would find out if you booked through a TA.

There really aren't "GTY rates." Once a category has almost sold out, DCL will continue to sell that category for a little while with GTY status -- so you will not get to choose a specific room. DCL will assign you a room in that category or higher FOR THE SAME PRICE as if you had chosen a specific room in that category. If you do end up getting upgraded, I suppose you could see it as a discount. Many people do end up with the category they booked. There are actual discounted rates called IGT, OGT, and VGT. When they are available, they will be listed with the other room categories. Look up near the top of the page and you will find a Sticky with a great explanation of the difference between GTY and *GT bookings.
