Hi, this may have been answered before but how long before a cruise does Carnival assign a guaranty cabin? We are leaving in August on the Ecstasy. Thanks

Typically 40-60 days out, ours was at day 63, but they will not actively show this information on the booking if you booked thorugh a TA. You can use the gift method via the funpass to check, however. (look on Carnival boards, someone asks how to do it every couple of days) Be advised that no assignment is FINAL for a GTY cabin booking until you show up at the dock and it can change up or down in grade.

How many people in your cabin??

If more then two you stand a chance of getting a rollaway instead of a upper bed etc. on your cruise.

Majority of times the cabin is set at 45 days. But could change up til the time you get on the ship.
August is high peak sailing time. Hows the sailing doing
