Unfortunately, I didn't know that deck 10 verandahs have a solid wall every other room so ONLY connecting staterooms can connect verandas. I am happy that we are right next door and again taking a crusie, but have to admit I am bummed that both rooms and verandas connect with strangers and not each other! Anyone in 10556 or 10562 wanna trade?!
Actually, it's the other way around on deck 10--many of the connecting rooms don't have connecting verandahs. We recently sailed deck 10 on the Dream, and had a connecting room with our friends (10022 and 10020), but we had the solid wall between our verandahs so we couldn't open it up. But we could have connected verandahs with 10024 on our other side.

GTY are different than IGT/OGT/VGT. You cannot pick the actual room, but you do pick the category. GTY have the same cancellation terms as a regular room - only thing you won't see what you get until late in the game.

IGT/OGT/VGT not only you can't pick the room, you can't pick the category neither. They only thing you get is the type: inside, outside view, verandah. These rates are full payment required and non refundable. They only way to upgrade these are at port.

These should come out next Monday hopefully... I'll be there as well - booked OGT - at the time, the difference was nothing between IGT and OGT. But a huge difference for VGT.

That'd be wonderful! But all I keep reading about are assignments being made on Mondays. Don't know if that's the standard protocol or what...but I'll hope for sooner than that!
