We just booked yesterday, 13 days out, from the Aug 11th 4-day Dream cruise. Two rooms, GTY cat 7a. Hoping for two rooms close to each other! 12 days to sailing - hope we get our room assignments soon!

We are also sailing on the 9/19 cruise. We have a 05E GTY. We have yet to be assigned to a room number. Will we know before we leave?

Checked again last night and we were assigned room 5164. This is a cat 4E. I was really hoping to stay in 5E but at least these verandas are a bit bigger than the norm. Either way we will be on board!

Assuming the Fantasy and the Dream have the rooms numbered the same I can tell you that the veranda for 6192 on the Dream is slightly smaller because of the flag pole. Still a very large outdoor area.

We had kind of a weird thing happen. We originally thought we booked GTY in category 9D for the November 9 Wonder cruise through Costco Travel.

Costco called today to say that they had made a mistake on our reservation and since there are not 9D's available now, even at GTY, they upgraded us to a 9C at their cost and now we have a room assignment.

I was a little disappointed that we only got upgraded 1 level, but I'm just glad we have a spot on the cruise. I'm not entirely sure when the mix up happened but the only other bad thing about it is that we are now stuck with the second seating for dinner, which wasn't our preference.

Were you originally booked with early dining? If so, I think I'd call them back and discuss the issue with them. I'm not sure WHY you don't still have your dining time, if you had that originally... Since it WAS their mistake, it doesn't hurt to call and check and see what they can do (and even maybe go to a supervisor and explain the situation). You could at least be put on the waitlist? It doesn't hurt to ask!

We are set to sail on the Disney Wonder on 9/28 and booked a navigator's verandah 07A GTY. I logged in this morning and saw we have a room assignment, but I'm a little confused. It says this:

Room # 6632, Category 07A, Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator's Verandah

However, when I look this room up on the deck plans, it shows 6632 to be in category 5C. It's right next the navigator verandah rooms, but still in the 5C class. Can anyone confirm if 6632 is indeed a 5C and, if so, why the reservation would still say "Category 07A, Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator's Verandah"?

Yes, 6632 IS a 5C! With GTY rates, your reservation will always say the category you booked, not the category you are assigned to.
