When will I get assigned a room from a Ste. Guarantee

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I snagged a JS guarantee last night for our cruise....just curious how long till we get assigned a room. We sail Harmony on Sept 1st. There are no JS available on this cruise and haven't been for weeks so I jumped on it....I know odds of getting higher are null and figure they have to juggle the upgrades etc...but I am just hoping for a good floor...I prefer lower 🙂

Anytime between now and when you show up to the pier.  There is no "usual" or "typical".

If your experience is like others who reported here recently, you may find your deck number and/or muster station before you find your stateroom number.

One thing you can do is keep an eye on your setsail pass and see if it shows the suite designation Sea, Sky or Star.   That will give you a clue.

We booked our Gty JS in January for our September 13th Sailing on Ovation to Alaska. Suite number was allocated about 85 days out. We now have 62 days to go! Woohoo...

 

Funny thing, we were allocated the exact same suite number we had on Quantum out of China in 2016.. Awesome cabin, right in the middle of the hump, deck 6.  

 

Good luck with the cabin you get allocated! 👍

 

Cheers

My cruise is three weeks away with a guaranteed balcony cabin. I’m still waiting for a cabin assignment.  Getting frustrated as I like to plan but my own fault.

We had a balcony QTY on Navigator for 6/26 and never got our cabin assignment until 3 days before the cruise.

We did a GTY inside room for a January cruise on Mariner. Ive also heard we may find out when we are at the pier...

I guess a person needs patience...

Bumping this up as we just booked our first Guarantee Suite on The Mariner - leaves in a month or so - there were a ton of suites showing as available and the deal was too good to pass up.

 

As of now, no room assignment yet, but fingers are crossed to at least know before reaching the Pier ?!?!

We were looking at guaranteed jr suite for a cruise next year. $1,000 less. Are jr or full suites ever obstructed view?

20 days out for Mariner and still don't know. We were 14 days out in June when we were assigned a cabin #.

Were you happy with what they gave you?

My last JS guarantee was not assigned until 5 days before the sail date.  I was most anxiously waiting to see what I would get, as the JS cabins had been sold out (per website) for weeks.  Which was why I booked the guarantee in the first place, was only thing available when I booked late.  

 

I didn't get a JS...had to settle for a GS instead.  😉 Got very lucky, and worth the wait.  🙂

@Seville2Cabo

 

In my opinion, no.  Voyager and Freedom class aft Junior Suites are listed as obstructed, but I don't consider them so.  The superstructure on the back of the ship bothers some people, but it's not even a blip of a problem to me.  The last Junior Suites on Deck 10 aft of Radiance class ships have the window washing equipment outside the balcony, but again, not really a problem as far as I am concerned.

We booked a guaranteed BALCONY cabin for the B2B Sept. 1st cruise on the Harmony & we got our cabin # 2 weeks ago. Also for the Sept. 8th cruise.

Out of curiosity, what are you planning that is contingent on your cabin assignment?

It seems since they play the upgrade-game things changed!

I’m not planning anything. I just want to know where my cabin is going to be located.  My son and I both booked guarantee balconies and we were hoping to at least be somewhere near each other.  Anyway we both got cabins assigned two days ago both on the same floor but at opposite ends.

We have a balcony guarantee for both cruises. Were fine with cabin 8346 but since my husband is having mobility issues it was a little further from the elevator than I would have chosen.

My apologies for misunderstanding your statement  "Getting frustrated as I like to plan...". 

 

I can understand better booking two guarantee cabins and being curious if they will be anywhere near each other.

 No apology necessary 😊 since our bookings were linked we were hoping for cabins a little bit closer together but all is good.
