Verandah Guaranty Cabins

We are looking to book a very last minute cruise on the Dream departing Friday, December 19. Right now the best rates are the VGT .. just curious what others of you may have experienced by going this route ....

We have booked several VGT cruises and have always been satisfied with the room we have been assigned.
I think if your room location doesn't matter to you, GO for it.
We have saved as much as 50% booking last minute cruises.

Good Luck.

My husband and I booked a VGT on the 12/12 sailing on the Dream. We linked our reservation with another couple, friends who are also celebrating their anniversary. We were assigned category 5A cabins on Deck 10 mid/forward on port side. There is a cabin in between our cabin and our friends' cabin, but they are close to each other so we are thrilled. This is our first Disney cruise so first time booking VGT. If you do a search on these boards, there's an entire thread devoted to tracking GT cabin assignments (Just type "IGT VGT" in the search). Happy sailing!

Silly ?? .. is there a website that lists what cabins are still available for sale on a particular sailing?

No. The only way to see if a specific room is available is to do a dummy booking, or call DCL and ask if they will see if it's available.

I've booked VGT rates for both of my previous cruises. On the Dream we actually landed a category 4A! We were really happy with our room on the Fantasy as well. We also saved quite a bit on both occasions.

I booked an OGT rate for my upcoming cruise on the Wonder. We got assigned a category 9A room that has good reviews so we're happy.
