The explanation of Guarantee Status at the first post in this thread is not necessarily correct. I booked and got a Guarantee Status for a 5E stateroom. These are all at the stern of the ship, which is what we wanted. When they assigned a room, Disney put us in a Cat 7 mid-ships by the elevator and refused to accept my complaint that their assignment was a much worse room.
Essentially they said that Guarantee Status for 5E means 5E or higher category to them. We had even asked the cast member who booked us originally to mark the record that we did not want an upgrade except to concierge. This request was ignored.
Beware of Guarantee Status.
Does anyone recall approximately when the Feb *GT rates were released?
I think I remember seeing the first *GT rates around December 15 when I started to look to book a cruise for February. They could have been there earlier, that was just when I started looking to book.
Okay, I hope I'm not being a little too crazy here but is it possible to get VGT for June-August time frame? I know that is usually when ships are probably full. Our last cruise we booked in advance but DH is still "thinking" he might want to go this year when kiddos get out of school. Eastern Caribbean or Bahamas. There would be 2A 2K and the possibility of 2A 2K for my brother's family. Your thoughts please! TIA!
Experienced *GT peeps, I have a question. What is the likelihood of being able to book 4 people 1 adult/3 kids on the May PC cruise?
I waited on VGT rates last May. It never happened.
Hi Dis Family! I just booked a VGT room on 1/22 for a 2/9 sailing date. When can I expect to see a stateroom number assigned?
I book a VGT on this year's 9 nighter Alaska cruise. I have a few questions about how they fill the cabins. Do they go from the highest class to lowest in the category or lowest to highest? Do the people who book VGT get put in an order like the first person to book it is #1, 2nd #2 etc? The reason I ask is because I want to know are people who book VGT (or the other fares) later or closer to cruise time more likely to get the better rooms because the original VGTs were already assigned from the lower categories? I am just very excited to have a verandah in Alaska. It was my dream but with the difference in regular prices of inside cat 11c vs lowest class of verandah there was no way I could justify the price difference. Now I totally can!!!
I booked VGT for 9 night as well! YAY
