^^^

We're practically identical!

9/14 Fantasy - VGT

4E, 5028

Very happy. Big room. Big verandah. Can't complain. If we booked a 4E today it'd be $928 more than the VGT booking. Not too shabby at all!

Booked VGT at like 65 or 55 days out. Can't remember. It was the first day VGT was offered. No other *GTs were available.

Received our assignment 24 days out. Early!

Didn't have any other rooms booked.

Waiting for 9/21!

I am waiting on my VGT assignment for 9/21 Eastern in the Fantasy. Anyone received an assignment for 9/21 yet?

I think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...
1) VGT
2) 16
3) 5D
4) Happy
5) We had booked one room as a 4D months earlier and then added the VGT when they came out. I am happy we are on the same deck.
6) 78

So excited!!! Just booked the 10/27/13 Halloween Magic cruise out of Miami on a IGT rate that I saw late last night online (booked with a TA this morning). They also had OGT rates as well (no VGT rates). Saved $300 compared to the regular inside rate.

Booked 53 days out and anxiously waiting for an assignment. Can't wait to see the new Magic!!! May try for port upgrade to O/V or verandah but still happy to just be onboard. Have been waiting for this to go *GT rates for months!!

Hope this helps anyone else who wanted the 5 night Halloween cruise on Magic.

MJ
