Please include:

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on May 12th Fantasy
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 16 days prior
#3. What category did you get (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever)? 4D
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?VERY HAPPY
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? We booked early March for May 12th sailing

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...
11 more days
