I honestly tried to look around for an acronym list and couldn't find it.

Thanks!
IGT= inside guarantee
OGT= oceanview guarantee
VGT= verandah guarantee

Just booked a IGT for 28th October on the Dream (4 N Bahamian) and impatiently waiting! Whatever happens it's a bonus cruise for an unbelievable price. I'll update when we have news.

verandah

We had a verandah guarantee, got assigned 7638 which is oversized and has an oversized balcony. It is a handicapped room, neither my husband nor I is handicapped. Very excited about it.

Best to all

Wow--what an amazing upgrade! I think that booking IGT on the Dream and Fantasy is a great idea since there are so few inside cabins, relatively speaking, and so many verandas! I also think that when you book just one cabin, you have a higher chance of getting an upgrade because you can go anywhere. They don't have to worry about looking for more cabins that are close together. Congratulations!

Agreed. How do they decide though? Some cat the cat they paid for and some get fabulous upgrades.

Who knows? It would have been interesting if people had listed whether they were first-time cruisers or their level of Castaway membership. Maybe we could have seen some trends regarding upgrade decisions.

This is our second cruise and second time booking an inside room. Actually, I think we're the perfect candidates for Disney to upgrade- not so many sailings that we are set in our ways, but a pattern of booking at the lowest possible price. By upgrading us this time it will probably be harder to go back to a lesser experience next time.

I don't know if they actually think that way, but the exact same strategy worked for them at WDW, where our second trip we were upgraded from ASMo to a 2 bedroom at OKW. After that experience it would be tough to stay value, and we actually stayed (and paid for) deluxe on the only WDW trip we've been on since then.
