    You need to keep checking. I am waiting for 2/24/13 Dream. Just booked a VGT on Jan 20th. I figured about on the 11th or 12th it will be assigned.

    Maybe things have changed recently, but we booked a VGT for a Feb 2012 cruise on the Dream 90 days out. It was definitely a VGT, not a GTY. We ended up with a cat 4E.

    Sorry, didn't see this until today. I'm pretty sure it was VGT ... That's what it said on my reservation confirmation.

    I am waiting on a VGT for a cruise 15 days from today, I keep checking my online reservation daily for an update.. that is what I would keep doing to see what you get for an assignment.. It should show you once they assign you a cabin!

    I hope I can ask this here.

    Do they ever offer VGT rates for Alaskan cruises?
    Also, do these rates come out only after the PIF date?

    Thanks so much,
    Lori

    DCL refer to my reservation as "GTY, Category VGT, Guaranteed Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah". What's the difference between a GTY, VGT or a VGT, etc.?

    We've always booked concierge, so I'm definitely out of my norm. But, the short, last minute trip was priced too good to pass up!:)

    The lingo gets confusing! Our VGT booking was referred to in communications from DCL as "Category: VGT, Stateroom GTY" as well. On the DIS boards, people drop the GTY part when posting to avoid confusing this type of booking with a true GTY booking. IGT, OGT, and VGT are special rates that tend to be offered less than 75 days out -- but not always. There are restrictions that go along with the low rates with regard to payment and refunds. You could be assigned any room within the type (i.e., inside, outside, or verandah) you book.

    GTY is offered when a category is just about full and DCL is unable to assign a specific stateroom. You pay the same for, say, a 5A GTY as you would for a 5A where you have chosen or been assigned a specific room. You are guaranteed a room in the category you book or higher. All other terms and conditions remain the same.

    The only way to check is to do the quote process at the DCL website to see if the cruise you are interested in is showing any categories as IGT, OGT or VGT.

    It will show the categories and in red it will say "RESTRICTIONS APPLY"

    Right now on the Feb 24, 2013 4 night on the Dream an inside cabin costs approx $200 more than a verandah cabin because the verandah cabin is on a VGT rate and the inside is not....crazy!!!

    I am anxiously waiting my VGT assignment on this cruise.

    :yay: We booked a VGT mid January and FINALLY have a stateroom #.....5A forward. I was REALLY hoping for a high deck, either mid or forward, so I'm VERY happy! :cool1:

    You would not have had to worry...there are no verandah cabins below Deck 5 so 5 was the lowest deck you could have been assigned on a VGT.
