Let's use this thread to keep track of IGT, OGT and VGT assignments?

What @otten said is correct. Your cabin type is VGT. If you had booked GTY it would be listed as the category and then GTY. Example Category: 4E Stateroom: GTY. There could be a GTY with 4E as well - Category 4E GTY - but it's been so long since I booked a GTY (got burned with what most people would consider an upgrade from an 8B to one of the Deck 5 verandah cabins - too low and too midship for my liking) I don't remember.
As my dad used to say clear as mud. :)

With these rates I know they can put you at any location in the ship. Do those of you who have been placed at the front of the ship had a lot of motion sickness? It that worse at the front of the ship. I think I would be OK, but the rest of my family might not could handle a front cabin.

Yes, the front can definitely have more motion.

IMHO, if you or anyone in your party has motion sickness or anything else that dictates you avoid certain areas, booking GTY or *GT is NOT the way you should be going as you have zero say in where the cabin is.

    Yes, I agree with you on that now and no those rates would probably not be best for us. Thanks!

    #1. What category *GT cabin did you book and on which ship? OGT Wonder
    #2. What category and room # did you get? 9B 2088
    #3. How many days before the cruise were you assigned your room? 13 days
    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Pretty happy. We’d have been fine anywhere on the ship, but were hoping not be be on deck 1 with the smaller portholes. And the savings over what we would have paid even on opening day was significant.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? n/a
    #6. What day of the week and time of day was your cabin assigned? Monday afternoon
    #7. What month is your cruise? January
    #8. How many days before departure did you book? 101 days

    New to DCL, so learning the lingo. Which is better GTY or IGY, OGT, VGT?
    It depends on your needs.

    GTY is frequently not a discounted fair. It's just what Disney does when they've sold a certain number of staterooms in a category. A GTY booking is the same as a specific stateroom booking in every way except that the room is chosen by Disney. You pick a specific category 9C for example and will most likely get a room in that category (upgrades are possible but not common and you shouldn't expect it). The cancellation and payment policies are the same as for a specific stateroom booking. Sometimes GTY is all that is left to book if a cruise is selling well. Rooms are typically assigned 45-60 days out but can be assigned several months before sailing or when you arrive at port.

    GT is a discounted fare offered closer to sailing (usually after the paid in full deadline but not always) and they are offered when Disney is trying to fill a sailing. There are restrictions to this category. You can only select a broader category: inside, outside or veranda and could be assigned any room in that category. You have to pay in full at booking and it is non refundable and you can't make changes. GT rates are not available on every sailing and you have to book more last minute. If that works for you, the discounts can be worthwhile.

    You must be on my cruise! I’m curious - how many people do you have in your stateroom? We booked a 9B GTY but we have 4 in our party and I heard that they’re aren’t many 9B rooms that hold 4. We were upgraded to a 9A room but I’m a bit nervous because I would have preferred the location of the 9B Roma more!

    There are 2 of us. At this point with GTY it is tricky for DCL to balance staterooms and muster station capacity.
    If you landed one of the handicapped accessible rooms, I think you will enjoy all the space for 4 of you!
    If concerned about motion being forward or aft, given that this is a port-heavy cruise and really not much distance between ports, the motion should be minimal. Hope it works out for you!

    Hi there
    Is there a similar thread to this but for GTYs?
    I searched the forum but couldn't find it? Should I use this thread for GTY's?

    Thanks! We didn’t get a handicapped accessible room. We’re pretty far forward which is why I’m nervous! We’ve never cruised before so I’m not sure how I’ll do with motion sickness! Thanks for your response!!

    Have you gotten your WBPC room assignment yet
    No :(

    I was hoping to get it these days bc some ppl on face**** said DCL usually assign GTY rooms between the 50-60 day mark
    I also wanted the link to see if someone has gotten it recently.. but no one's posted recently :S

    #4. Are you happy with your assignment or do you feel like you got a "leftover"- undesirable room/location? Pretty happy since it was an 11C GTY which means we could have just had a standard inside stateroom compared to the deluxe inside we received.
    #5. If you booked more than one room, are they close together? Yes, all 4 rooms are within a 10 cabin stretch
    #6. How many days before departure date did you book? 47

    I think when it falls off the first page people don't think about it. If someone posts in it we'll probably see more posts follow
