Guarantee Cabin - How does it show on HAL Reservation system


Recommended Posts

Help - I've just switched my reservation from an SC (assigned cabin) to an SC Guarantee on The Oosterdam due to an $800 saving. I've never booked a Guarantee with HAL and my cabin assignment just says Guarantee and does not say Guarantee SC. My confirmation email from my TA says SC Guarantee, but when I check on line on their site under existing reservation, it does not mention the important SC. Am I being paranoid here or has HAL made an error. Can any of you experienced Guarantee bookers calm my nerves and tell me how this category Guarantee should be shown on the HAL site.

not to worry.. it will not show what category the guarantee is.. only will say guarantee.. just keep checking the immigration form online by entering your name and booking number and generally a couple weeks prior to sailing it will finally show what cabon # you got..


we just did a guarantee for a balcony on westerdam sailing 10/15 and ended up w/ a VB so no complaints there.. I think our cabin number finally showed just less than 3 weeks prior to sailing

When your docs arrive, if you still don't have a cabin assignment, your cruise contract will say 0-S guarantee. You could get upgraded to an SB or SA, or the penthouse, but if you have an SC guarantee that's the lowest category you will get. We had an SZ guarantee and got an SC.

Good luck, and don't get antsy, the longer you wait for an assignment, the better chance you have of getting a better cabin. Ours came 10 days before sailing day.
