We are OGT on Wonder for 11/2. Still waiting for our cabin and hoping its not the smaller portholes. Will have to wait and see. One thing this thread (which I just found) did not include was Castaway Club (what level) of membership is everyone - we were told this comes into play with cabin assignments. Wonder if it really does? We are Gold.

It would be interesting to know if Castaway Club level comes into play, but I don't think there is anyway to find out. Based on our experience, 10 plus cruises, 4 of which have been *GT, I don't think it does.

On our current reservation (Fantasy 10/26 next week, see post above), we booked VGT and got 4C, which I think is very good (Family ocean view with verandah). We are platinum. My parents booked the same (they are silver) and was linked to ours. They got same category, 4C, connecting to ours. I was thinking maybe we were assigned a larger cabin because we are a family of 4, but then again my parents are only 2 and got the same thing. Maybe because we are platinum, but then again they are silver. Maybe they got the larger cabin because they are linked to ours? Who knows, maybe it's all random.

Two cruises ago, being platinum, we reserved OGT in the Wonder and got deck 1 with the two little portholes, which we really hated. So being platinum or being a family of 4 didn't make a difference for that one.

Thee may be more things that come into play here, like how full the cruise is, what cabins are available, etc. it's hard to know.

We have only ever done one *GT rate (IGT) and got assigned an 11C. At the time BF and I were both Silver - his fifth and my third cruise. Even with GTY rates (other than his very first cruise) we have never been upgraded out of the "number" category we booked (have had C to A twice and D to C once). We are now both Gold. Personally I think the less cruises you have booked or have done the more likely you area to be upgraded, lol. Once you hit Gold they know you will come back.

Forgot to mention that price was for 2 adults and one child. VGT saved us at least $1200 if not more with the upgrade assignment to family oceanview verandah from what I can tell.
