When do they usually assign your cabin when booking a GYT

 

No usually.   Can be anytime up to when you arrive at the dock.

You might not get a specific cabin, but once you check in (90 days out) your SetSail pass may show the deck for your cabin.

That is rarely the case. Mist guarantees are assigned before that.  My guarantee for our Christmas sailing was assigned over a month ago.

Just saying what happened to me. I never do that but for some reason I did not book a certain cabin for the very first time. When I arrived at check in I was given the sate room. I sad I did not book that room. She replied you did not book any specific room. Never happen again. It was a terrible room.

Of all the people on here who report booking guarantees very few ever say they get their assignment at the pier.  It does happen but usually they are assigned before then, even if it’s a few days or a week prior..

Our cruise last week was assigned 2 weeks out. Knew the deck number about 3 weeks out. We're 58 days away from the next sailing and I have deck 6 assigned as of today but not cabin # yet.

We are 10 days out and haven't been assigned yet- where would I look on our set sail pass?  I don't see anything but maybe I am looking in the wrong place!

Got it- thanks!  It just says REPRINT-GTY.  Oh well- maybe we will win the bid we put in!

Try reprinting, see if anything has changed.

Did they send you your E Docs? I saw it there before I logged in to look.

It seems to be taking longer and longer to be assigned a cabin number. With the up bid and having the ability to change cabins once assigned I think Royal has found a way to keep people from changing cabins and decks until it is too late to change to a better cabin location or a different deck.

 Agreed. That is exactly why, tag. :classic_huh::classic_rolleyes:

We are in an ocean view balcony.  I was very nervous about the room assignment but it turned out great from what I can tell.  We will see when we get on the ship :).  We are on deck 10 kind of mid ship forward if that makes sense.  I hope you have great luck and your room assignment comes quickly!

Oh, I have already "lived" my guarantee booking.  Received the actual cabin number two and a half days before sailing. WORST balcony cabin on the ship.  I was fine, but I would guess that most people would have been DEEPLY unhappy.  :)

 

Sounds like you have a good one, though!  Enjoy.

We received ours for our upcoming Christmas cruise within a month of booking the guarantee and about 9 months before sailing.  Happily switched our 2 cabins to a better location.
