Purchased a VGT. Ship sails two weeks from today and still no cabin assignment. It appears there are still 30+ cabins in this category available.

    I've gotten assignment at 12 days and 10 days before.
    What day of the week did each assignment occur? They are usually on a Tuesday. I'm guessing one cruise sailed on a Friday (10 days) and the other sailed on a Sunday (12 days)?

    For all of you who have sailed IGT/OGT/VGT before, is there a cabin number printed on your luggage tags? Or do they just put GTY on it? Did you need to write your cabin number on it once you got the room assignment?

    Likely won't be a cabin number printed on it, and that's ok...

    The tags are printed before your cabin is assigned, but the bar code on them is unique to you. Once DCL updates your reservation with your cabin number, that will be part of the information available. If you'd feel better, you can write your cabin number on your tags, just be careful not to write over the top of something else.

    Additionally, if you're flying in the day before (which is always recommended anyhow), you could walk over to the Disney transportation area and fill out new tags WITH your stateroom number as and use those since you won't be wanting to attach the other tags when you fly from home anyhow.

    Thanks. We always fly day before to make it as stress-free as possible. This time it's from Dover, England so we really have to fly early. I was just curious if there were any clues on the tag.

    We have cruised VERY last minute, as in booking 3 days before sailing, 30 mins before DCL reservations closes and no more booking for that cruise. We had no luggage tags at all and the porters took care of everything. No worries. :goodvibes

    I've gotten assignment at 12 days and 10 days before.
    When you got these assignments so close to sailing, did you get an upgrade? Or were you assigned to the category you paid for?

    We pretty much do GTY or IGT, but the latest we've been assigned before was 60 days out. Those cruises were more than likely going to sell out, so only a small upgrade from 11C to 11A, let's say.

    We are 35 days out with no assignment yet. Just seeing if the longer the wait means a better possibility of an upgrade? This particular upcoming cruise has MANY staterooms available in all categories with just about a month from departure, so what would be the likelihood of a bigger upgrade (from 11 to 10 or higher)? Has anybody had any experience with this?

    BTW - We just got our luggage tags (latest we've ever gotten them out of 5 cruises), and they had a blank spot for the stateroom number. I'm assuming we'll just write it in once we find out.

    You might be "on to something" with the notion of selling out. If the cruise reaches a point where it's considered sold out (and I firmly believe that there is ALWAYS 1-2 open staterooms "just in case" they need to move someone), that might be all that's required for them to go ahead and do the room assignments. They claimed that the cruise we were on was sold out, but they were able to move us to an identical room because of issues with ours. And we got our VGT assignment at 11 days out (Tuesday of the week before we sailed, Saturday departure).

    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?
    55 days for one and 14 days for the other
    3) What category (ex: 7a, 4c, 11c or whatever) and room # did you get?
    9b
    4) Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location?
    If I had chosen a room, it would have been Deck 2, mid ship, port, which is exactly what I was assigned, so I'm thrilled.
    5) If you booked more than one room, are they close together?
    Yes, three doors apart. I think that's good for two GTY rooms, especially considering they were assigned at such different times.
    6) How many days before departure date did you book?
    69 days

    One of the rooms was assigned on a Monday, and the other room was assigned on a Wednesday.

    I've been using this forum so much that I felt like I should contribute some info that others might find interesting. I normally just lurk because I hate commenting, especially when I have to register.
