OK... Now I know this question has been asked before (since time eternal, no doubt) and I DID a search of the forum - and the last significant thread I found was started back in August of 2005 - with the last response in December of 2005... so it seemed reasonable to pose this question again with emphasis on those who have booked a guarantee catagory (12-7?) and sailed in 2006. If your experience predates 2006 - please feel free to share your experiences(s) too - however - we are looking for folks who have sailed on a GUARANTEE BASIS in 2006 in particular. In an attempt to achieve maximum usefulness from the info... please state 1) What guarantee catagory you booked (most should be 12 Grnty - a few might be 9 or 7 though); and 2nd) How many were in your party?; 3rd) When did you book?; 4th) what was your sailing? 3-4-7-or 10-11-14? Plus - if you don't mind...5th) let us know if you're a repeat Disney cruise Castaway Club member... and 6th) whether you felt your cabin assignment was in a good position on the ship .... IE ... were you near the front where lots of ships motion is encounterest - or did you have an extra noisey cabin... or other problem with the assigned cabin? Some of me questions are reflected in the poll for quick unaudited tallies at a glance. And ... I'm waiting for my cabin assignment in a 12 guarantee - our 1st booking like this - so we're sincerely interested in finding out what currently seems to be going on with these kind of reservations. In past threads - from what I can tell - parties of 4 are more likely to see catagory 11 or better since it seems catagory 12 has no cabins that take 4 pax. And very few (if any) get better than a catagory 9 from a 12 guarantee. Plus - there was no measurement of how Castaway Club patrons fared versus New patrons.... or whether the length of sailing made any difference.... or whether it made any difference who you booked through. Remember - if your experience was BEFORE 2006 - please feel welcome to respond and share your story here. However - if your experience with a guarantee was in 2006 - then please do post what came of your booking! Thanks in advance to those who reply or post with constructive interest.
