Good point about the luggage tags. We received our luggage tags a few weeks ago with no room number on them. I'm assuming we will hand write the room number in once it is assigned?

Does anyone here regularly book GT cabins? I'm trying to weigh the odds of whether a VGT would be available for the cruise we want in October. From the website it appears there are lots of verandah category rooms available for our cruise but we are looking at a 3 night cruise. I understand that length of cruise may sell out quicker with people not having to take off work as long.

Has anyone booked a fall 3 night cruise in a GT category? If so, do you remember how much you saved? Trying to figure out if the savings is worth waiting or not.

Thanks.

You will get tags with blank cabin numbers. You are instructed to write them in once you know your number.

Anxious to hear reports for the VGTs for the June 23 sailing. Reports from 6/16 were encouraging. We have 2 VGTs booked for 6/30 and I assume we're still a week +/- a day from getting our assignments.

We didn't have more than one room but we are linked with 3 other cabins (family members) and we are down the hall from one of them.

SO STINKIN EXCITED!!!!!!!

Hey KimDisney
Sorry to hear you didn't get the cat. you wanted. How many in your party? It's just my DH and I on the June 29th Dream sailing and I am afraid we may be assigned one of these too Should know soon.... You should try to upgrade at the port if you are arriving early. There has been alot of speculation about how that is being handled...but worth a try if you could get upgrade for a few dollars more. Have fun either way...at least you on the ship for a week.

Good idea tooth fairy! I'll see if there is an upgrade available when we get to the port. I'm bummed about our room, I really wanted a full verandah. This room has a VERY small verandah, with a bench. The view will be pretty from the aft, but I am disappointed. I'm not at all worried about the vibrations, we had an aft inside room on deck 6 last year on the Dream. The vibrations were there, but they helped get our butts out of bed!
