I used the Kelly method to find out our guar room. We have 7 rooms on the Holiday. 3 of the rooms are on the other end of the boat and different floors then the rest of us. I called my TA to see if we could all be closer together. She called carnival and then asked me how I found out my room number because carnival said the guar rooms hadn't been assigned. Is Carnival just playing with me or will I really be in those rooms. Has anyone used the Kelly Method to find out room numbers and if so did you actually have those rooms?
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
Re: rooms & kelly method
OK - here it goes on the Kelly Method: If you have booked a guarantee cabin on a Carnival there is a way that could possibly tell you what cabin you are in....but it is time consuming and you must have your booking number to do it.
Go to carnival.com, click on gifts and services, make a selection and then proceed to checkout. At that point it will ask you for the booking number and the room number (and here is where it gets tedious) - you enter a room number and it will tell you no booking could be found - repeat with a new cabin number over and over until you finally hit the right room. As I said, it is very tedious. And the closer you get to your cruise date, the more likely you will find your cabin number doing this. I did it last week (we sail 1/13) and finally found our cabin - had attempted three, two and one month before sailing and nothing.

We tried this on our last cruise and found our cabin quickly. We had booked a 4A guarentee and it showed us in a 4B. It kept showing us in the 4B until the day we left for the airport. When we checked in we were in a 6A. That 6A was not booked by anyone because we were right above the gangway. If we had been light sleepers that would of been an absolutely horrible room, but we were fine. So it is not necessarily accurate. It just depends on how often Carnival updates the cabin database that feeds into their website.
There is a good chance that you will be on the opposite ends of the ship. Most guarentee cabins tend to be in the less desirable areas: the very front, very back, next to stair wells, ect.
