We booked a double inside and a triple inside at the end of July for the Jan 10th Explorer sailing out of Miami. For some reason the reservations couldn't be linked (something to do with groups?). Checked earlier this week and staterooms were assigned. Not sure when that happened, I'd been in the planner a bunch of times but it hadn't occurred to me that they might be assigned already. They were 7 cabins apart on the 8th deck but I couldn't figure out whether they opened into the same hall or not. Checked online and surprisingly there were no double insides available so that couldn't be moved. There are only 5 triple interiors on the back of the 8th deck and only 2 of them are adjacent to double interiors. Remarkably 1 of the 2 was was adjacent to our double and available. Called our TA and got it switched. Very happy because now we can put the 3 kids in the same room and we'll have a little privacy. Maybe insides get assigned earlier because they're not being bid on?
