It is what it is, but still sucks. Let's just hope that the delay is so that we all get rooms in good condition, at least we should have our room assignments by the weekend

I have been following this thread a bit. We booked our VGT on Nov 3rd for the Fantasy Dec 6. Anxiously awaiting assignment. Have 2 cabins booked but other is for my parents so its not a big deal if they are close.

Better late than never

Sorry to be a little late posting this but I was out of town on business ...

#1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT on Magic Western 11/15/13
#2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 10
#3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? Cat. 7A Room 5132
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Would have liked a little pixie dust but we got a good deal regardless, and I've always wanted to try a Navigator Veranda. Sounds like this cabin is in a fantastic location, though. Although several past cruisers commented on the squeaky veranda???
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
#6. How many days before departure date did you book? 45 days.
#7. Castaway Club member level? Silver

Just four more days!!!
