    Just booked a IGT for 28th October on the Dream (4 N Bahamian) and impatiently waiting! Whatever happens it's a bonus cruise for an unbelievable price. :woohoo: I'll update when we have news.

    We had a verandah guarantee, got assigned 7638 which is oversized and has an oversized balcony. It is a handicapped room, neither my husband nor I is handicapped. Very excited about it.

    Best to all

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Wow. I was hoping for a deluxe inside instead of the tiny one. A verandah is beyond what I had even considered wishing for!

    Wow--what an amazing upgrade! I think that booking IGT on the Dream and Fantasy is a great idea since there are so few inside cabins, relatively speaking, and so many verandas! I also think that when you book just one cabin, you have a higher chance of getting an upgrade because you can go anywhere. They don't have to worry about looking for more cabins that are close together. Congratulations!

    Agreed. How do they decide though? Some cat the cat they paid for and some get fabulous upgrades.

    Who knows? :confused3 It would have been interesting if people had listed whether they were first-time cruisers or their level of Castaway membership. Maybe we could have seen some trends regarding upgrade decisions.

    This is our second cruise and second time booking an inside room. Actually, I think we're the perfect candidates for Disney to upgrade- not so many sailings that we are set in our ways, but a pattern of booking at the lowest possible price. By upgrading us this time it will probably be harder to go back to a lesser experience next time.

    I don't know if they actually think that way, but the exact same strategy worked for them at WDW, where our second trip we were upgraded from ASMo to a 2 bedroom at OKW. After that experience it would be tough to stay value, and we actually stayed (and paid for) deluxe on the only WDW trip we've been on since then.

    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? 29 days... wait it might have been 39 days out...trying to remember


    We are thrilled with the room assignment but we are still unsure if we will be able to go :( I might go alone with my 3 yr old if my boyfriend can't go. Hopefully we will know tomorrow for sure.

    So bobbie0253, you went from an IGT to an oceanview with verandah. That is a sweet upgrade. I booked an IGT on the 11/10/12 Magic out of Galveston about a month ago. Prices are still cheap for that cruise, so not sure about an upgrade. Just happy to be on the Magic for sure. I am hoping my previous 3 sailings on DCL will help.:wave2:

    Yep :) We booked an IGT. We tend to sail RCCL a lot and have never once gotten an upgrade with a GTY booking. This was a nice surprise :)

    Wow, you both got amazing upgrades, and on the same cruise too!! Hoping for your amount of pixie dust when ours is allocated. pixiedust:

    It will be interesting to see if there is a pattern on CC level, we are Gold, and will be at 9 cruises soon. I can imagine Disney going "oh they'll come back again whatever, lets put them on Deck 1 between the engines, the crew quarters and the loading bay"!! :rotfl: :rotfl2:

    We have 2 VGT booked for Oct. 4 Dream and no cabin # 10 days out. :( I thought for sure we would get them today! We are platinum for those keeping track. Thanks to all who contribute to this thread.

    Thanks timmbco! You made me feel better. We have vgt on 10/20 fantasy and had a room number assigned but then added our dd and our assignment disappeared! I have been freaking out but they must be slow to assign now.

    Look on the red bar on top for staterooms, there is a link to room reports where you can input the number and look for reviews.

    1. VGT, Dream
    2. 9 days
    3. 4C
    4. Happy. It looks like a great cabin, but I think it will spoil us for future trips (our first time in a balcony, which I already knew would spoil us!)
    5. N/a
    6. About 1.5 months
