    I've booked an IGT for a Jan cruise and honestly am hoping for anything except a 9D! There is a lot of floor space but just disliked the weird porthole in the corner!

    How do you find out about your assignment? Do you have to keep checking or is it emailed to you? We should get our assignment any day now, So I just wanted to know if I should keep checking.

    I'm curious too. We're on the Jan. 12 Fantasy Eastern Caribbean and have a VGT reservation. We should be hearing something soon!

    You just have to keep checking. Disney doesn't notify you of your cabin assignment until you get your printed cruise documents.

    Just checked the website. We're in stateroom 5532.
    1. VGT on Fantasy
    2. Not sure, just checked the site and it was there. I guess we expected that we would get an email or something.
    3. Room 5532 not sure what category this is
    4. This seems to be the lowest level verandah room, so I don't think we were given anything extra other than what we booked
    5. N/A
    6. About 60 days

    Thanks, gummyfisho! I just found out the same thing on the cruise blog. It's also a family stateroom with verandah so it looks like we got a bit of pixie dust!

    I don't want to rain on your pixie dust ('cause it really is a great assignment!), but it's not actually a family stateroom. :( The website says it is, but it isn't. The verandah is oversized, though, and a great place to relax and enjoy the view! Just wanted you to know so you weren't disappointed when you arrived :). Happy cruising!

    Can you elaborate? I thought all cat 4s were considered family stateroom. Maybe I should ask what makes it "family" stateroom? That it sleeps more than 4?

    I've posted about this before because it's my one DCL pet peeve ;). We ended up in cat 4E (5150) as a result of a pixie dust upgrade, so I wouldn't have dreamt of complaining on the ship. But it still bothers me for the people who pay for the category thinking it's a family stateroom. Cat 4E rooms are listed on the website as family staterooms, but they are actually not. They are the same size as 5s, but were recategorized as 4s (probably because of the verandah being oversized). I emailed DCL about it being incorrectly described on the site and received a standard response that yes, cat 4Es only sleep 3 or 4, depending on the room, and are NOT family staterooms. No acknowledgment of the fact that the room is falsely described as a family stateroom that sleeps 4 or 5.

    Bottom line, DCL knows about this and it's been discussed on the board, but it hasn't been fixed. Buyer beware :)

    Well, since it's only the two of us we should have plenty of room. Yes, according to the website it's called a family stateroom and the square footage is about 50 ft. more, but maybe that's the larger verandah. In any case, we'll enjoy the larger verandah and will be wary if we ever intentionally try to book a family stateroom. As another poster mentioned on the thread I started concerning this room, with a VGT we could have gotten a category 6.

    Thanks for your input everyone!

    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 5B...6066, midship, port side
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Pretty happy, knew we could end up with a partially enclosed verandah, but we got a regular one. It's pretty centrally located overall, so I think we will enjoy it.

    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?66 days
