Just checked online for the 5-day on Dream on 8/24 - there are no longer IGT or OGT rates being offered, no oceanview rooms at all, and what looks like several open rooms in both Inside and Verandah categories. I can't wait for room assignment! Hopefully next Monday!!

Congrats! Now its our turn...Dream 8/19. Appears there are no inside rooms of any kind left on our cruise. Still offering OGT and VGT.

So would I be correct in speculating that people with a OGT would get a veranda? That's so cool - will have to track our cruise bookings as we get closer to see how it's looking.

Probably not - that just means that they have sold enough rooms in these categories to not offer any more discounts - if you pretend to book these rooms at full price there are plenty. We too are on the 8/24 dream in an IGT and are pretty sure that's what we will get....so many rooms available to book

We are at least four weeks from getting our room assignments, yet I'm completely enthralled with the possibilities! I can barely contain myself now, what am I going to be like in four weeks?? And what if they aren't assigned 10 days before as I'm assuming? I can already tell that waiting a few extra days could be nerve racking!

Yes, when that 10-day deadline came and went...it was pretty tragic for a few of us. There was constant refreshing of the internet site from work, home, on the road, at the grocery store, etc. It drove a few of us completely batty! And then...on day 8, assignments started coming in.

It'll drive you crazy for sure! The unknown is a wacky thing! Best of luck!

I hear what you are saying. I almost wish I hadnt found this thread, ignorance is bliss but now knowing what I know I will be blowing up the internet at the 10 day mark.

So for 8/19 there are still selling OGT and looks like about 20 some ocean view that can be selected and GTY as well.

There's over 50 verandahs available as well and about 14 Concierge.

Now, inside are all gone. I don't think we'll know much for several days, maybe even until Monday or Tuesday of next week as they'll continue to try to sell these.

What sucks is that we won't get much of any upgrades as they'll probably keep them to sell at port.

A DCL employee told me that they don't discount any cabins, even if some are available at the port. Is this true?

They will have upgrades available at a fraction of the cost difference if they have them.

For igt/OGT/Vgt however it is based on the lowest category and noton what you got.

Question about category

I booked an OGT for our Alaska cruise. I just checked for room assignments (know it is early) and notice the following by my stateroom number - Outside stateroom with restrictions OGT, #GTY. Does the GTY mean anything special as I thought GTY was a regular code? Was hoping it would be ahold thing.

By the way, a friend is on the 9/23 CA cruise and got her room already with an IGT booking and was upgraded to an outside room.

Thanks.
