GTY to Stateroom Assignment

I am on the first Alaska cruise this year for May 27. We currently have a GTY room. Usually, when do they assign a stateroom? 3, 2, 1 month(s) out? Any help is appreciated!!

We are waiting also for this cruise and have booked a 5C GTY. Cabin assignments can be any time, average 30 to 45 days out, sometimes closer to sail date.

What matters is what kind of guarantee you have. Is it a specific category, as in 5A GTY, or 9B GTY? Or is it a OGT, VGT, or IGT?\

The GTY rooms are generally assigned about 30-45 days out. Could be as early as 60 days. And, one note here, may not be assigned until embarkation day (rare, but does happen).

same category

It will be interesting to see who gets their cabin assignment first.
We will either get an 11C (which is better than not being n the cruise at all)
or an upgrade which is also nice, but unlikely.

It really matters how many other people want to book this category and their party size.

You only get bumped up in category if they need your room or others rooms did not book and they deicde to move you up.

Still will be interesting to see when we do get room assignments.

We received our GTY cabin assignment about 45 days prior to our Alaska cruise last year.
