    Does DCL send an email with the assignment?

    I bet it has more to do with when you booked. First come, first served? I booked back in February. I can't imagine it's random or people would get upset. There are such a limited number of 7A cabins, that many of us were bound to be upgraded. I'm sure they sold (and are still selling!) 7As long after they sold out of actual 7A rooms!

    To answer your question, no I did not have my reservation linked to any other person's. However, it doesn't make sense to me that dining would have anything at all to do with cabin assignment. Can you just link your reservation with another person's for dining only? Or does linking your reservation apply to all aspects of the cruise, as in wanting rooms near each other. If the second is true, then I CAN see that being an issue. They maybe were trying to keep you near whomever you are linked to?

    Maybe check when you booked and where your room is in comparison with your linked friend's room.

    Oh and I wanted to add that they still have 20 some odd actual 7A rooms that somebody has to go in, so clearly not everyone can be upgraded. :(

    We booked back in early February too. Our friends booked about a month later. This is our first Disney cruise and this is their fourth. Their room assignment is also 7A and 6 doors down from us.

    Not complaining at all about not getting upgraded. I am getting what I paid for. Just curious what might trigger an upgrade. Maybe it is like WDW pin codes - another great mystery in randomness. :confused3

    We are booked in a GT room as well on the Dream for the 9/19 sailing. Wondering when we will get assigned. I keep checking but no luck. :o

    Awesome, thanks! Maybe next Monday. I noticed on cruisefish.net you can look up your sailing and pricing. Our sailing had dropped and so I called Dreams Unlim. (my travel agent) and they upgraded us to a balcony (4 Cat. higher) it's still a GTY but still I'm excited!

    We also booked a 7A GTY! We decided not to do the FE. DD10 will be really busy with starting a new dance year right before our trip, and we're doing a few park days before and a few park days after, plus a MNSSHP. I didn't want to have to carry around any extra stuff. As it is I'm trying to figure out how in the heck I am gonna pack everything we need without needing a Uhaul to transport my luggage lol. :faint:

    Got it! My daughter (7) and I are just going to WDW the night before and night after and are really bummed about missing the MNSSHP!! We just started a late FE group and have just 6 cabins so far. Check out the meets page if you'd like! You are welcome to join in if you change your mind!

    I think you really got a great location even though you didn't get an upgrade. I would much rather have the room you got(with a slight obstruction) then be on deck 10 with all the noise. We booked a 7a and were given a 5c. I'm very happy to be on deck 7. I booked in early June so I don't think it has anything to do with when you booked.

    We are not doing the FE. This is my 4th Disney Cruise, I just don't want to have to think through that and fly it all over etc.. This is an all girls trip adults only so no FE for me. :)

    I keep looking but no update yet. Where was it listed, under your reservation did it say it there under the Castaway Club area where you look up your reservation?

    EEEk! you're 13 days out and you don't have your room assignment? i'd be worried, you should have your luggage tags and stuff in the mail by now. I'd call DCL and check on it.
