I checked at 3 ...nothing! Again around 4:30 and there it was.

AFAIK, a 4a is a bigger room than a 5a. It's a family oceanview with verandah, vs just oceanview with verandah

I think it might be due to how much stuff they have left. For example for 8/19 they are still selling IGT/OGT/VGT, which means they won't assign the other ones until the sell out, then they can assign.

I guess that is a good thing....to have a ship that is NOT packed! Oh, but the suspense!

Not sure this is always true. I saw some folks getting assignments for the 8/17 sailing of the Magic, and there are. OGT and VGT cabins available.

(And oddly, there were a number of 8/25 Magic categories listed a few hours ago, but now I couldn't bring up ANY available categories.

Sorry that this is a bit off topic...

Can IGT bookings be upgraded at the port?
