Any *GT sightings lately?

I'm feeling the itch to get back out to sea and was wondering if there were any *GT (prefer VGT but would settle for I or O! LOL!) rates floating around... it's likely the only way i can convince dh to take a last minute cruise.

Last year we snagged a VGT in March for a May (Mother's Day) sailing on the Fantasy and it was amazing! I'm thinking we need to do it again. preferably soon (but possibly not)!

Gigi 1313, I just emailed my travel agent for the same thing! Told her to keep an eye out! Dh will totally go if we get a good rate! We like *GT rates since we prefer to book late and its kinda exciting and fun waiting to see what room we get assigned (we r not picky)! We did VGT for the Dream last May (also booked in March). What rate did u pay for *GT rate on the Fantasy last May???

I have a terrible memory, but there were five of us, 2 in VGT/3 in IGT, and our total was around $4500, inc insurance.

Yes, they are discounted rates, usually show up after the pay-in-full date, and they come with some heavy restrictions... But they are well worth it if you can snag one that works for you!

The first initial determines type of room... IGT=inside Guarantee, OGT=ocean view guarantee, VGT=verandah guarantee.

And, how do you find the dated and rates that become available? Do you get an on-board credit with them?

what was your Dream rate last May and what type of stateroom, how many days, etc? My kids want to go back on the Fantasy (who wouldn't?!) but the Dream may suit our schedule better
