#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? IGT, Disney Magic 9/2/12

#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 13

#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 11A, deck 7

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? I'm ok with it. It was stateroom roulette. I would've preferred an 11C on deck 2, but this is only a 5 night cruise and it's just me in the room.

#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A

#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 58 days

#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?When I look at Deck Plans I found a few things we avoided on all of our cruise bookings - it is a connecting room, it is right above a nightclub area - both of these items are big negatives for us - but we'll see what happens
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Only one room booked
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? Booked 16 days before cruise

We have an IGT for the Dec 9th Panama Canal.
I know it's wayyyyy too early to be assigned a room, but want to keep my eyes on the type of rooms everyone is getting.

Pixie dust to all!!

This waiting is killing me!!!

So, the DCL website does not show anything but Concierge available now for the Sept 7th Magic sailing.

Why don't they go ahead and let all of us waiting for XGT assignments know what are cabin number will be?. It is killing me. I check a million times a day, but know it will probably be next week before we all know our cabin assignments.

I'm sure with the full sailing we have, there will be little

This should be posted on the regular GTY assignment thread. If you booked a regular GTY...not one of the IGT, OGT or VGT reduced rates, highly restricted categories than this is not the right thread. IGT, OGT, VGT are usually considered "last minute bookings".

This thread is to keep track of *GT assignments. You can post your assignment on the thread in the link below. Have a great cruise!!

Just a clarification...if you booked a VGT you were booking a verandah in any verandah category (you would not necessarily be booking a NV).

Could you happened to have a booked a regular GTY? and not one of the discounted, restricted categories like IGT, OGT, VGT? If so, then you should post your assignment on the thread below.

From my booking email from Disney Cruise Line: This was booked June 28th this year. You tell me then.

Category VGT - Verandah Stateroom with Restrictions

Private verandah with varying features based on room assigned, including solid white wall above the railing or large open-air porthole.

Hi DVC-Don,
Yes, you did book a VGT which means you could have received any verandah from Category 7A Navigator's Verandah to a Category 4 Deluxe Family Verandah Cabin. And, you have been assigned a 4D Cabin which is a great cabin in a great location. The "with restrictions" just meant you couldn't cancel or change your reservation in any manner; it didn't mean you were only restricted to a Navigator's verandah per your booking manner. HTH! Have a great cruise!

Yes, it does appear you booked a VGT and were assigned a nice open verandah cabin. As mentioned in the previous poster's post when you book a VGT you could have been put in ANY verandah cabin onboard, not just a navigator's verandah (so you really did not book a NV...just a verandah).

Really not trying to nit pik, just trying to keep things correct as so many people are confused as it is between regular GTY booking and the discounted "last minute, restricted" bookings.

Nice cabin assignment!!! Enjoy your cruise!!!

MJ
