One thing I would like to mention... I spoke with an CM today regarding my registration so I just asked when I might get my room assignment. Because it's just 2 of us in the room we will be assigned ours last. She said due to lifeboat restrictions placing 3+ is more difficult so they focus on them first.

Just thought I'd throw that out there for those who may be waiting with 2 or less people in your room.

That is interesting about 2 in a cabin. My daughter and I make a party of 2 and we have always gotten our gty assignment with the others on our cruise.

This trip I booked a 7A and had a room assignment. About 6 weeks ago I checked the price to upgrade through the DCL website/modify. It was only $126 to go to a 5E GTY so I did that. I got a huge wonderful aft/ port side 5E. I was very happy with the verandah but curious about the handicap accessible shower and not having the split bathroom. Yesterday I received an reservation confirmation email from DCL that I had been moved to a 4C midship on the 7th deck. Sweet room for just 2 of us and at a bargain price!

Wow! That is great. When is your cruise? She did say the nice thing about only being 2 in a cabin and "being able to place us almost anywhere" there is good chance to be upgraded to cabins that tend to book last which are 5's and 4As. Hope I get some pixie dust this Christmas!

When is you cruise? How many days before your sail date did they change your room?

#1. What category GTY cabin did you book? 7a
#2. What category and room # did you get? 5b room 7612 (my reservation still says 7a but everything I've found says this is a 5b, I'm guessing since 7a is what I booked?its my first time doing this)
#3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 59
#4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Couldn't be more thrilled to have gotten some pixie dust as they say around here. It's an anniversary cruise and I never dreamt of being able to afford a 7a much less a 5b
#5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/a
#6 What ship are you sailing? Wonder
#7. What day of the week was you cabin assigned. Tuesday
#8. What time of day was your cabin assigned? Afternoon

For those of you who have received your assignment, are you able to see your cabin # when you look under the "my cruises" section of Castaway Club?
We're at 57 days now and I check a few times per day but using my phone on the train ride to & from work it's hard to open my reservation sometimes.

Right now when I look under my cruises, it still lists GTY but I'm wondering if that will change once the assignment is done.
Thanks!

Yes you will see your cabin number there once it's assigned. It's "real time" so to speak.

57 days seems to be the start of when cabins are assigned so I bet it won't be long for you now.

Good luck!

Same cruise, my SIL booked 7A got 5B. Happy, just not on same floor as the rest of 14 of us. She's on 8, we're all on 6. But definitely an upgrade, #8156.

Is this for a GTY? Or one of the discounted IGT/OGT/VGT rooms?
