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.
It just means that it is guaranteed, instead of #3456, it is #(unknown). Still waiting for my 8/19 assignment. We believe it is because our cruise is still soooooo undersold. Still have all types of rooms except inside and the highest Concierge avaiable.

An undersold ship is a good thing, right?

Yes it is! We always cruise at Spring Break on a FULL ship, so, even if I am in an inside room, it will seem luxuriously empty!

We had initially booked for a 3 night in November and had a 5B then cause there weren't any outside cabins available. We switched for about 500 more to this 5 nighter on an OGT.

Awesome on the 5E!! Those are our absolute favorites and I'd gladly pay for them so to be upgraded from OGT to this category - I'd be doing cartwheels

Congrats again everyone,

All you 8/19 Dream people need to save some pixie dust for us on 8/24ers. I am resigned to the fact that my IGT may just be that, but one can hope right??
