It will be assigned to you this coming Tuesday in all likelihood as that's the most common time that they do them (the Tuesday of the week before sailing).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.
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.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.
When you got these assignments so close to sailing, did you get an upgrade? Or were you assigned to the category you paid for?I've gotten assignment at 12 days and 10 days before.
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).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.
