First Time GTY

Waiting on 5E GTY Feb 17 2013...I normally hand pick our room. I mean I research and read reports before I pick our room. So I'm a bit anxious.
Though everyone I've spoken with is very pleased with their GTY room

Now to find out what our VGT will be for the week before...we are doing a back to back! I'm really surprised that we received the second week before the first? I guess it's because of the VGT! I hope they keep us in the same would be so much more convenient...I guess time will tell! Good luck to everyone else who is waiting on room assignments!

I just came across this at one of the sites I visit (Cruise Advice)
"Exterior staterooms 10034- 10056 port side and 10534- 10556 starboard are all under a relatively quiet pool area..."

I'm sorry, but what does VGT mean???

Do you often get upgraded when you don't know your room #? We are sailing Sept. 15 on fantasy and still don't know our cabin #.

Thanks for the info on room 10046!! VGT is a restricted veranda have to pay for it all upfront, you can't make any changes to the reservation & you don't receive your assignment till very close to your sailing. The rate was a lot cheaper then a regular veranda stateroom!

We just booked VGT for the 03Sep Wonder sailing to Alaska! I've already checked the DCL website several times today, even though I know there's NO chance our stateroom has been assigned. I don't know how I'm going to make it through the next 5 weeks... Hope we have a bit of the same pixie dust as Momma2Jax - a 5A verandah would be awesome!

Got my room assignment 45 days out. I booked a 5E GTY, but of course I wasn't going to get it--apparently they are too popular! I was upgraded to a 4E (new category), although my ressie still shows it as a 5E. In any case, it's 5150, with the super-wide balcony so...yay!

Waiting along with all the rest of you
We have 2 VGT for the 9/2 Magic. Just hoping they will assign the rooms in close proximity to each other...... One fellow cruiser has already received her stateroom assignment .....but not us..... I have never booked a GTY/xGT status before, but the fare is what allowed us to sail this time.....I HATE waiting.

I'm VGT on 8/25 Fantasy. I added my 21 y/o son this morning. Hope we get a little bit bigger room now. As my fellow cruisers have been getting their docs, yesterday and today, we're still waiting for room assignment. My TA talked to DCL when making the change, and they told her they haven't been sent yet.
