    Considering the range of cabins/categories you could have been given, cat 4-7, a cat 4 is best and this room appears to be in a great midship location. :thumbsup2 You hit the lottery here.:goodvibes

    #1. Did you book a IGT, OGT or VGT room, and on which ship?
    OGT - Wonder
    #2. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room?
    12, on a Monday
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    9C - 2620
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    We're happy. The location looks convenient to MDRs, Oceaneer Club, drink station, stairs/elevators, & disembarking at ports. I have read of noise complaints due to being directly above the Tender Lobby & I hope if/when it is noisy we will already be awake or not in our room. We are very happy to not be on deck 1 (I believe we will have a much better view from our 1 porthole than from the 2 small portholes).
    #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 45

    #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?
    11, Tues
    #3. What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    5A - 10150
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    NO - Totally not happy - Totally a leftover. I mean - I *should* be happy with a 5A - but right by elevators and apparently right under the restaurant so you can hear that- and there is an obstructed view/overhang on the balcony according to reports. I don't think obstructed views should be considered a 5a cat.
    #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 35??

    Someone please help me feel better about this assignment!!!

    11, on a Tuesday

    I think 4A - 10126?
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    Honestly just stoked to have a balcony period. If the website is to be believed that it's a 4A - then we have a family sized stateroom and if that's the case then we're elated!

    N/A
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book?
    40ish

    SuperGator6!

    I was on the Fantasy last year in a 5A , deck 10 . I cannot recall the exact stateroom number but I had the same concerns as you before my cruise date...Nearby the elevator and right under the restaurant . I read some horror stories on the Internet about how noisy this type of stateroom would be..with children screaming, ppl chatting as they wait for the elevator.... Crew pulling chairs in the middle of the night to clean the floors... I was so anxious. But guess what ? I ended up loving the room. So conveniently located, it was so easy for me to go up to deck 11 to grab a drink, snack... And to access the elevator to go to the kids club, restaurant..
    Just keep an open mind. I'm sure you will have a great time

    This was a review of someone who was two doors down I think - same category:

    Notes: We were assigned this room on a VGT (GTY) rate and were quite pleased with it. With the exception of some minor early morning shuffling from Cabana's buffet directly above, it's a very quiet room. VERY convenient to Cabana's and the pool area's. The balcony is a normal size with the clear plexiglass, however, the view is a little different because of the overhanging structure above and the steel support columns in front of you, but I wouldn't call it an obstructed view. I would be delighted to be assigned this room again.

    Hope I helped to alleviate some of your concern. Here's to a fabulous trip!

    We always seem to have rooms near the elevator and stairs.
    We have never had an issue with too much noise.
    If you are really concerned pick up some earplugs at Walgreens and throw them in your suitcase just in case.
    We love to book VGT rates and we have done 3 this year and have never been disappointed.

    Thanks all. It is the noise above and obstructed view I am worried about. I am excited for the person that got an awesome Cat 4 on VGT on our cruise. I know they still have cat 4s left. So it irks me we we're stuck in a leftover room!

    Hope it will be ok - but I won't book VGT again. I have the worst luck and should have known better. So many on the boards get cat 4's I thought we had a good chance. Oh well. I guess it is a learning experience

    We had vgt and upgraded to 10156. Our view was obstructed but still awesome. One night I heard some noise, but didn't sound like from above...don't know what it was and went right back to sleep. My kids never noticed. I wouldn't hesitate to get that room again. Very convenient to cabanas/stairs/elevator.

    We had 10654 almost opposite of 10150 in August and loved it. View is slightly obstructed but still great. Very little noise from above as that area is right under where Cabanas goes from indoor to outdoor so not much chair movement. Add to that the aft elevators are the best!

    Hi we were in this room this past March, we totally loved it. There were no noise from being near the elevator or under Cabannas. It was super convenient to the restaurants like AP, and Royal Court and Cabannas, we never had to wait long for elevators, we just a convenient room in general.

    I think we'll be seeing them come out next week when we get within the two week window. I'm hoping Monday as I can stand the suspense. :)

    Bigger question, did anyone on the 10/20 double dip get an assignment yet? I see they are still selling IGT and OGT on that cruise. They're down to 11 days.

    Lin7 - thank you for your input!! This helps me a lot! I could find no official reviews of this room online - just adjoining ones. How was the verandah view? I am a little concerned reading that the overhang of cabanas is above you and the support beams come down in front. I want to sit and drink coffee in the morning and enjoy the view and not look around poles! :). If they gave me a 7a - I would just be oh well - it is obstructed - but weird that a '5a' has stuff in the way

    If you want you can PM me - I don't want to hijack the thread too much :)

    Thanks!

    That's odd. I couldn't get any cruise except 10/27 to show up when I looked for reservations.
