We're on the same cruise. Booked an 8bgty and received a 5c. We chose our 8a cabin5520, for the 4 day right before this one, but when it wasn't available to do the back to back in, I figured we'd do a GTY in a lesser category, assuming an 8b GTY would probably have the same chance of being upgraded as the 8a at a slightly lesser price. If I can't stay in my spacious 8a for the whole week, at least I'll have a starboard side balcony to enjoy!

We're also on the same cruise, booked two 9B GTY and yesterday received our cabin assignments, two connecting 8C. Quite happy.

Looks like people on the 9/2 Canada sailing on the Magic are getting their assignments. We are on the 9/12 sailing. So far looks like everyone who booked an IGT is getting a CAT11. I think I have no chance of getting an upgrade. That darn DVC super discounted verandah sale for the Sept Canada sailings killed my hopes

12/15 Fantasy 8A GTY
received 8A cabin 5020

I did call and asked them to please give us the same cabin number for both portions of our B2B.
We already had a room assignment from booking on our 12/8.
They switched our 12/8 from 5520 to 5020 so we now have the same cabin for both.

I'm happy. I don't have to repack to move!!
Double portholes somehow seem romantic to sit in and look out the window. Have a daughter I can imagine will give me many photo ops doing just that.

PS. If the person that had 5020 on the 12/8 wonders why they switched sides of the ship- now they know why and thank you.

I was checking what was still available for our Sept.12th cruise and there are no more veranda rooms available at all. Guess that is the reason also.

I feel your pain... while it is really cool to get a nice upgrade, it is always just a huge perk to be able to step foot on that ship!! But, to really think on the positive side, there are not that many category 11s..hope your room is assigned last so they have already filled in all 11s and must put you in a 9!! It can happen

Yeah thanks, you're right. I've never been able to book a GTY rate before, usually I'm trying to fit 4 to a room and work around school schedules but since we are leaving the kids at home this trip I was able to go with 'IGT', I'm all about getting on the ship for the cheapest price possible and I am totally prepared and expecting to be in an 11. (we were just in a 10 with the kids a month ago) What I like about the GTY rates is the possibility, that tiny little hope that we'll get a little upgrade or maybe a really big upgrade. So the hope for a little upgrade is still there but the hope of a really big upgrade is gone. I would never actually complain about that in real life to the people I see every day but here it's different, you guys get what I mean! Anyhow heres hoping for a 9!

There is another thread to keep track of the IGT, OGT, VGT assignments. this is the thread for regular GTY assignments.

You can post on the IGT, OGT, VGT thread here:

Oh I was under the impression that this was the talk about thread and the other was the post your results thread. Sorry.

There are actually 2 threads....one for regular GTY assignments and discussion (this one) and the other for the IGT, OGT, VGT assignments.

Regular GTY and the discounted, highly restricted IGT, OGT, VGT's are two different animals so 2 different threads.

No worries...just don't want people thinking all GTY's are the same as they are not!!

That's great!

We are on the 10/20 Fantasy sailing. I'm hoping we also get assigned a cabin number 50 Days out! I even have day 50 marked on the calendar in hopes of some good news that day.
