    I know! That's exactly what I was thinking! I have to admit, I got a little nervous seeing the three sixes in our room number....thank goodness for that 0 to separate them!

    Hi all:

    We're waiting on an IGT with Magic sailing Feb 15, I'll post what we get! We also got an inside cabin 11c on the 6th level, so I'm hopeful that they'll have pity on our family of 5 and keep us near each other. Anyone else in this situation?

    We book one VGTon the Fantasy (2A/2C) about 50 days out? We got our room assignment 12 days before we leave - a 4A- room 9610.
    We are very excited about our room and definitely feel like we got a great deal!

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? VGT -Fantasy
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 12
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 4B, 8118
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? absolutely thrilled
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? n/a
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? 53

    I doubt we'll ever make a regular booking again as long as DCL is doing the *GT fares. We always travel fairly last minute and very flexible and the *GT rates and rooms I've been seeing over the last year are fantastic. We cancelled a regular booking to switch to this VGT. Even giving up the rebooking discounts and OBC we still saved money plus we jumped from a cat 9 to a cat 4.

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship? Booked VGT on the 1/26/13 sailing of the Fantasy. Booked on 11/22/12.
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 12
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get? 6088, Category 4 HA.
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Very happy, excellent location
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? N/A
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? About 65 days. Booked on 11/22/12.

    Just back from this sailing and must say we were very pleased with our cabin. I was a bit concerned because it was a handicap accessible cabin (we aren't handicapped) so we were afraid there would be sacrifices on counter space and closets. That wasn't the case at all. This cabin was extra wide (perhaps 50% wider than other standard cabins) to allow for wheelchair access. The bathroom is not the split we have come do expect but we adapted.

    We're OGT on this same cruise. I check every day to see if we've been assigned a cabin yet, even though I know it will likely still be at least 2 weeks before we know. ;)

    We are a family of 5 as well. Do you guys get one room or two? It's tough traveling with 5......

    There's only 2 of us, so we'll fit in any cabin. :)

    Can someone explain to me what IGT, OGT, and VGT are? I did not see them on the acronym list.

    Still waiting as well and we sail on Jan 31st. Funny thing is, I have no idea what I booked as this is my first time on a cruise - ever. All I see is room GTY, category IGT. I'm sure I will have fun wherever the stateroom is, but man I still keep checking every single day.

    Oh dear...we're cruising on the 27th and was hoping today was the day. But the cruise ahead of us hasn't heard yet. Sigh...

    I don't know if there is a method to this, but I do remember reading someone on the same cruise as us (Jan 31st) got their room assignment last week or the week before. Perhaps they go by category as I'm IGT and she was VGT I believe. I'm curious now.

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?*
    Booked VGT on the 1/26/13 sailing of the Fantasy .
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?*12
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?*7602, I think that's Category 4C.
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?*Happy.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together?*N/A
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?About 60 days.

    Notes: We originally had room 10600 Cat 4a, which we booked day one with on board discount for 4970.00. A few days before the pay in full date we decided to switch to this VGT rate for 3781.00 for 2 adults 2 kids. We thought it would be worth the risk if we could get anywhere near the Cat we had originally and save the 1200.00. Since we ended up with a Cat 4c, we think it paid off. Although any verandah would have been fine by us. We leave in 3 days for a precruise week at WDW.

    Yes it is! I can't believe how much we would have saved if there were just 4 of us in one room instead of 4 plus a baby! :crowded: :sad2:

    We booked 2 rooms, 1 being a IGT. Oh well, I guess, at least we'll have lots of storage space. Here's to finding out in about 2 weeks! :hourglass

    There seem to be loads of inside cabins left on this cruise, so I'm hopeful that our family's 2 cabins will be on the same level. It's like waiting to open a surprise gift! (Hopefully it's a nice surprise!:stir:)

    Same here. We ended up booking two rooms this summer. Surprisingly, it wasn't that much more than booking a room for 5.... It's amazing how much more that extra kid ends up costing!!!! LOL....I guess it's worth it though....Haha!!
