I think you have to just sort of play around with the booking site and see how many avail rooms come up to choose from in each of the various categories, kwim?

Question: are the VGT rates per person for the entire party or are they just the first two people with 3rd and 4th being cheaper like the usual rates?

The 3rd and 4th guest are cheaper. Harder to find these rates with 4 ppl per room tho.

Do the med cruises ever offer *GT fares? We are looking at the May 31, 2014 Magic sailing out of Barcelona. Love to get a deal, but don't want to wait if it isn't going to happen. Thanks!

I was just coming to post this since I knew there were a few of you stalking the 11/30 Fantasy sailing Great job - wish I could take advantage of those rates but I just can't pull DS out of school that long now. We have had the Fantasy Spring Break 2014 booked since opening day but it's hard to see the prices so much lower - gotta live it for now

Have fun!

Still watching for early January...
Any rhyme or reason as to when *GT rates are posted? mornings/mid-day/overnight? day of the week? etc?

They usually will get posted after the PIF date has passed, which for early January will not be until October.

Thanks! Good luck with your early dec dates...I say chances are very good for GT rates 1st 2 weeks- we have done both the Dream and Fantasy 1st 2 weeks of Dec and booked VGT both times!

This might be something worth tracking too. I can't remember which cruise it was but I do recall seeing *GT rates prior to PIF date. They weren't spectacular rates compared to my OBB rate and we didn't want to give up our good cabin or early dining for small savings.
