I book a VGT on this year's 9 nighter Alaska cruise. I have a few questions about how they fill the cabins. Do they go from the highest class to lowest in the category or lowest to highest? Do the people who book VGT get put in an order like the first person to book it is #1, 2nd #2 etc? The reason I ask is because I want to know are people who book VGT (or the other fares) later or closer to cruise time more likely to get the better rooms because the original VGTs were already assigned from the lower categories? I am just very excited to have a verandah in Alaska. It was my dream but with the difference in regular prices of inside cat 11c vs lowest class of verandah there was no way I could justify the price difference. Now I totally can!!!

Thanks

Hurry up and wait. There seems to be 8 cabins in all the categories 5b and higher, none in 6a and 5c, and only 2 in 7 a. There are 8 1-bedroom concierge available...can't imagine why anyone would want to pay $14k+ for just 2 people (I looked for my son and I haha) but to each his own I guess. We will just have to slum it in a verandah hahaha. Kidding of course! I'm so excited to move up from the lowest category 11c!!!

Does anyone know if we can request a certain deck or in our case request to not be on a certain deck? We've never done VGT before so we have no idea how it works.

Thank you for posting this. I booked a reservation for my uncle and I was allowed to pick the room. We'll see if it changes. Kind of makes it difficult to participate in the FE if your stateroom changes, though.

What's the Saving's

I've seen a bunch of posts on these reservations. Does anyone know what kind of savings your getting on these cruises? Such as what the normal price is, and what you paid, difference. I havent seen many posts with this info. Didnt know if its worth the hunt.

I was wondering the same thing. We are looking to do the Dream in the summer but I am trying to estimate cost compared to other options.

You can't request anything for the I/O/VGT rates and can't request a change once it's been assigned either. It's a gamble! But the great rate is usually worth it!

I've done VGT before and people who booked VGT after me got rooms in the same category as well as higher categories. Same with people who booked earlier. I think it's random. They used to try to keep linked cabins near each other but people have been saying not to count on that anymore with people with linked cabins winding up on different floors.
