Default room assignments

does anyone know when they assign the cabins for garuanteed rooms. I will be sailing on 2/7/09 on Liberty and am anxious to see what I end up with. I booked this trip 12months in advance. Hoping for maybe some kind of upgrade..
Thanks

Generally, 5-6 weeks before embarkation. That said, I've found out as much as 12 months precruise...and as little as 12 minutes before I embark

Ditto to jleg. I almost always book GTY, and lately it's been 4-5 weeks from sailing date that I get the cabin assignment,,,,,however,,,,having said that, there have been times when we found out what cabin we got from the porter when we dropped our checked luggage. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a good upgrade for you. Have a GREAT cruise.

Just keep checking online at the Carnival web-site for your cabin assignment. As soon as its assigned, it will show there. Could be soon.

You could get your cabin assignment right when you check in. Or they will give it to you a few weeks before you sail. You never know.

For those of you that only received your room assignments "shortly or minutes" before on the day of your cruise did you at least get something better than what you reserved??

Speedman,

Did you every get your cabin assignment? We're sailing on the same day as you on the Liberty and got our assignments almost two weeks ago. This is our first cruise and it looks like we got upgraded to 8D. Of course, I'm not cruise savvy so I could be totally wrong and just got the minimum of what we paid for!

Hope to see you on the cruise!

Ramona and John

We tried this just one time and got our room assigment at the boarding dock. The cabin had a partially obstructed view , however we knew that would be the case as that was part of our reduced fare.

I thank you for posting this question, I was wondering that too, because on my last cruise we got our cabin assignment earlier than I have on this one. I 'm still waiting too find out I hope I did as well as on my last cruise, no upgrades but a really nice cabin.
