    I think it would be interesting to see what kind of rooms are being assigned when booking a IGT, OGT or VGT room. I'm interested to see what categories are assigned, if the assigned rooms are in desirable locations, etc. I didn't see a thread that followed these over time, so if you booked one of these rooms could you please post your assignments when you get them (or post now if you recently got your assignment)? Please include:

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?

    I think tracking this info over time will give us a better idea of what we might anticipate when booking one of these bargain rooms...

    Was it a GTY or a VGT? It looks like you booked a "regular" GTY (with a specific category).

    I think the purpose of this thread is to see how the last minute restricted rooms (IGT; OGT; VGT) are.

    Well I will be the first. We got our room assignments today for our 5/14 cruise - so 13 days out.

    We had 2 cabins booked a VGT and an OGT. The VGT assigned was a 5B mid ship. So not a leftover at all....not a navigator balcony or a steel wall or right over the night club....no complaints here.

    The OGT was a 9B, also mid ship on deck 2....looks like a good cabin to me.

    The cabins are not close together but we did not expect them to be. The "kids" are 22 and 24 so they do not need mom and dad next door.

    Wow, nice rooms! Interesting to see that room assignments aren't always given 12 days before.

    I'm REALLY hoping our rooms are close together though, since with 4 kids, a couple of the kids will have to be in another room with my DH.

    Keep the posts coming :-)

    Please forgive my ignorance on this, but what does IGT, OGT and VGT stand for? I checked the FAQ thread and the acronym thread but didn't see these on there.

    Oops, sorry should have explained. They stand for Inside guarantee, outside guarantee and veranda guarantee. These rates are offered at times by DCL at great rates but they come with restrictions. First of all you are only guaranteed the category you book, so either inside, outside, or veranda. You don't get to choose your room and are assigned one by DCL at some point- usually very close to travel time. In addition, you may not cancel, change your reservation etc. and must pay in full at the time of booking. Hope that helps.
