Default Looking to book Alaska on Infinity...

1. Do all the balconies (for the rooms) have a top cover?

2. Are all the balconies (except for family view) the same size?

3. The trip is 14 months away and all the family views are booked. Is this common?

4. What is the advantage or disadvantage of booking a "guarantee" as opposed to just getting a certain room when you book?

Thanks for your replies.

I'll try to answer what I can.

As I remember yes they are covered.

No, balconies vary in size by the kind of stateroom you are in. However all 2AB & C's are the same size as are the staterooms. They just vary by location.

No too unusual. Just keep watching. They open and go a few times. They could be held by a TA and once said TA has to release them they will be back.

The biggest advantage of a guarantee is that you are usually first in line for an upgrade but I do find with Celebrity that very seldom happens.

Hope this helps.

If you are trying to book a Family Verandah cabin for next year for fewer than 5 passengers in the cabin, that could be why it isn't showing up. They hold those cabins for parties of 5. If, closer to sailing, they are still available, they will open them up to smaller parties.
