Easiest way to find *GT cabins?

I tried finding the answer to this in the "search forums" section, but could not do so. Is there a good way to search for *GT cabins when you are flexible on dates & locations? I was excited to see in another post that these ARE sometimes offered in the summer. I am flexible in the summer on times and dates. I just want to go on another cruise!!! I am thinking that there is a better way than to just keep going back and forth with every date & every location. I believe a TA would maybe be able to help with this, but I really like the COSTCO cash card benefit & I am hoping there is another way. I just don't think they are real attuned to something like this. Thanks in advance for your ideas!!!

AFAIK, the only way to find the *GT rates are just to keep an eye on the cruises you're interested in. One day (if they are going to happen) they just show up on the website.

ditto...there is no master list. The only way to find out is to randomly do "quotes" on cruises you want and see if the IGT, OGT, VGT categories come up.

Agreed. That is how we've always done VGTs. Just book the time off and hope one pops up! That said, we have gone VGT twice during summer months. It is the best provided you don't mind the gamble one will pop up and can be flexible.

Good luck!

I've also surfed cruisefish. It's not always up to date but I've often seen the GT rates pop up there on dates I am interested in sailing. You can also periodically check the DCL website for dates you are interested in. You have to go through a pretend booking to see the cabin rates. Mousesavers will have them listed on their DCL page. You can also check there.

I have also seen nice people on the DIS here announce when VGT, OGT, IGT rates are announced on certain dates.

With the rates going up I may be joining you on the quest but not until summer 2014.

In any case, these show up less than 75 days before sailing...
