I think it would be interesting to see what kind of rooms are being assigned when booking a IGT, OGT or VGT room. I'm interested to see what categories are assigned, if the assigned rooms are in desirable locations, etc. I didn't see a thread that followed these over time, so if you booked one of these rooms could you please post your assignments when you get them (or post now if you recently got your assignment)? Please include:

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on dream
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 11 days
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 5A 10650
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? The location is great as it's right next to the elevator, below cabanas, and apparently has a beautiful view of castaway cay when docked. I am a little nervous about vibrations, but overall very very happy. First time cruiser so I don't know what to expect.
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Yes, connecting
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? About 40

I think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...
OGT Disney Wonder for June 30th 7 night Alaska
assignment received 12 nights ahead of sailing
9B 2048
Happy
only one room booked
booked 31 days ahead of sailing.

btw made me sad to have to search so hard to find this thread. Hopefully other IGT,OGT, VGT sailors will add their info.

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? OGT - Dream

#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 13

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 9B - Forward/Starboard

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Yes, we're on the ship. We got what we booked, "OGT", and we didn't get 9C or 9D (although, those were GTY when we booked, so good possibility we would not get those). Is it a "leftover", no, but not the best out there. It could have been better though based on what is still available. Even in the 9B's there are still some closer to mid-ship, but they do still have four 8A's, seven 8B, at least eight 8C, and six 8D that you could book right now (i.e. you can select them on DCL's website).

#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? n/a

#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 28
