I figured if it happened, it would be rare. Thx!

Does anyone have thoughts on whether when you book has an effect on cabin assignment? How about status? (I.e. Silver, gold, platinum)

We are booked VGT on the Dream 8/29. After seeing how most people turned out with their rooms, I'm excited! There seem to be plenty of rooms open in the the 4 and 5 cats for our cruise, so that bodes well. I'm guessing by the patterns I'll hear late this week or early next. Can't wait! This will be our first cruise.

Still early for the 9/2. I think they usually come out at the 2 week mark though we are still waiting for 8/27 on the Wonder.

1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? OGT 9D on dream
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 53
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 9D 2526
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? It seems its a good location so its fine

#5. How many days before departure date did you book? about 65

I was surprised to have an assignment, considering many folks around here are MUCH closer to sailing and are still waiting.

We're on the 9/3 Wonder - hope you get your assignment soon, since we'll be just one week later! Are you waiting for VGT or something else?

If you BOOKED a 9D, you may have booked GTY and not OGT. That would be why you have a cabin assignment while others wait until 10-14 days before their cruise.
