I am not sure there was ANY IGT/OGT/VGT pricing last summer on the Fantasy. Those cruises are almost always filled to capacity during the summer months and the pricing normally keeps heading up the longer you wait. Maybe someone else can add to this, but I do not recall any GT pricing during the summer on the Fantasy.

There definitely was some July and August GT pricing for the Fantasy last year. I'm sorry I don't remember what they were like. I only remember them offering it because I almost switched to the Fantasy from my Magic cruise.

According to this thread there were. It's the only reason I even thought of asking.

There were GT rates and a DVC Discount offered on some June 2012 Fantasy sailings. I just don't recall what the GT rates were, I know the DVC discount was better.

I would love to know, too. We are currently booked on the August 17th Fantasy sailing, which we booked while onboard the Dream this past August. According to the thread luv2sleep linked above, there was a VGT rate on the 8/18/12 Fantasy sailing. Hmmm....

For the Fantasy 8/25/12 I found the following:

IGT for 2 $2543 (1 adult/1 child)

VGT for 2 $2655 (1 adult/1 child)

OGT for 4 $4191 (2 adults/2 children)

VGT for 4 was around $4900 ( 2A/2C)

IGT for 4 was more than OGT, but less than VGT..I don't remember the exact price.

Those are some steep IGT prices! Sheesh! Our 14 day Hawaii OGT was cheaper than that. Wow.

Ok I know thatGT rates are special cheaper rates (with some restrictions?) but can someone please explain these acronyms to me? I am new to DCL and just went on my first cruise and would like to do more so I would like to understand all of this better. Thanks!

The GT (guarantee) rates are released after a cruise's PIF (paid in full) date which is 60 days (I think) before the cruise sets sail. With one of these rates you are guaranteed a certain type of room but not any particular class/category, deck, or specific stateroom. The type of room you can be guaranteed for are Inside (IGT), Outside (OGT), or Veranda (VGT). So if you book a VGT you are guaranteed to get some veranda room somewhere in the ship. Your actual room assignment is given around two weeks before the sail date. If I understand correctly, when you book a GT rate you have to pay in full at the time of the booking.

You have to pay in full, and NO CHANGES! I tried to change it to 2 rooms, so I would have been paying more, but they wouldn't let me.
