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 booked our 1st cruise on 10/5 Fantasy and we were a family of 3 and ended up with a family verandah. So I am certainly a newbie but there doesn't seem to be.

I really do not think CC level comes into play. sunday will be my 30th DCL cruise and I booked an IGT and got a cat 11 assigned, I think it based on whatever their inventory requirenents are on any given cruise

We leave Fri on the Magic. We booked about 6 weeks ago and were assigned our room about 2-1/2 weeks later.

Yay! So excited for you! I've heard that the longer it takes to get your room assignment the better the room!
