GTY is a guarantee that you will receive the category you book, or better. You may not choose your cabin though. Example, in the past we booked a 9A GTY, knowing we would then get at least a deluxe ocean view (but hoped to get upgraded to veranda!) Now we need two rooms and enjoy them being connected, so we no longer book GTY since this request won't be honored. (BTW the verandas open to one giant veranda, I would not give this up for anything! Except a Roy or Walt... But that will never happen!!)

That's exactly what we do! Two connecting rooms, huge veranda. We put all 3 kids in one and we stay in the other. Cannot wait! Do you have your staterooms? We are in 9056 & 9058.

Yes, we do!! We loved our rooms so much this last cruise, we booked them again! Just one deck down from you, 8064/8066. Easy walk to pool deck, high enough for a great view, midship, and easy walk to running deck!

Exactly - love being mid-ship. This is our first time on the Fantasy, but we had nearly the same rooms (same deck, same mid-ship area) on the Dream and it was perfect. Eek! So excited.

GTY Info

Thanks for the info on GTY. Good to know I can only go up not down. I was looking at the cruise and there are no 8A rooms left. I was worried we would be with the crew or maybe just a couple comfortable deck chairs. Just get me on the Fantasy. So excited!!

Hehe! So exciting. What category did you book GTY? I think what happens a lot, when people book standard interior GTY and the cruise isn't selling well and DCL needs that price point to get people on the ship, they will upgrade. DCL would rather have the flexibility if needed to give free upgrades and resell the lower categories to fill the ship! Win win.

My first cruise I was on deck 1 on the Magic... Still worth it! :-)

Hope I'm that lucky. Right now we are 8A but would love a veranda room. Are you listening DCL!

I think I read on here or the facebook page that the cut off for the FE is December 31. Any idea how many are participating so far so I can get a head start on accumulating goodies? My obsessive personality wants to start working on stuff now to be ahead of the game. This way I can spend a little at a time instead of all at once.

I am working on putting the list together tonight. Trying to retrieve all the info from here, the fb group and my pm's. I am up to about 10 cabins. Everyone can leave me their info or pm it to me most from fb are on here as well so its easier if I combine the list. I think maybe only 1 isn't one here, or at least I think. I need disname, real names, fb name, ages, sex, cabin# and if anyone in your stateroom has allergies we need to know about.
