Hi Tracey and Brian;
GTY is simply "guarantee". It means that you bought, and paid for a specific class of cabin ie; inside deck 5, and that's the minimum that you will get. That means that the line may, and probably will, upgrade you to a better cabin, ie: inside deck 8, but the minimum that you'll get is the inside deck 5. Occasionally you will get what you paid for, but you buy, and pay for, the absolute minimum that you'll accept, and be happy with, and hope for an upgrade.
Happy sailing, and see you on board,
Ken

Skymaster is correct that a GTY "guarantee" cabin is that you are guaranteed a cabin that is equal or great than the cabin category that you booked. Always book the lowest cabin category you will be satisfied with.

You do not always receive an upgrade and even if you do receive an upgrade the upgraded cabin may be identical to the cabin category you originally had, except it is one deck higher or a bit closer to the center of the ship.

I have seen category upgrades that can be the cabin right next door and two category upgrades that are three cabins down the hall.

Take care,
Mike
