Are the IGT, OGT, VGT rates only shown when cruises aren't full? I don't recall seeing those categories online but then again I normally booked on the ship and transferred to a TA so I didn't need to shop much online.That's a *GT discounted rate.
Regular category GTY such as 4B GTY or 11A GTY are not discounted, and in fact with tiered pricing are higher priced than those who booked the same category before you. These are offered when a certain percentage of a staterooms in a category are booked, allowing DCL some flexibility to assign staterooms. There is no particular benefit to GTY other than you are guaranteed the booked category or higher.
The *GT rates (IGT, OGT, VGT) are highly discounted rates with restrictions. Similar in that you allow DCL to assign a stateroom in the broad category or higher. But includes restrictions such as no changes or cancellations.
