Default Cabin Assignments

I've booked an outside guarantee. Does anyone know HAL's cabin assignment policy, ie, do they normally notify in advance, or wait until the sail date?

The answer is both. Sometimes U'll get the assignment a few weeks before, sometimes a few days before, and sometimes at the pier.
They say the longer the wait the better chance of an upgrade. I don't know about that. Think there must be a rule about not ugrading Kuki <G>

I booked outside guarantee on the Volendam to Alaska in June. About 2 weeks before we sailed, we were notified and given our cabin #. It was only 3 cabins from Aft, but on Main Deck. I wouldn't have chosen it if I'd been picking, but I told myself I'd saved quite a bit, and a cabin is just a cabin, etc. Then about 3 days later, HAL called and upgraded us to a nicer cabin, still Main deck but mid ship. Very nice location, and we couldn't have been more pleased. My TA called and wanted to know if I had called HAL and asked to change cabins, their choice was so good. Have fun!

You're right, Kuki. Just got our cabin number yesterday, much sooner than expected: sail date is 11/02. We're assigned a Cat C on lower promenade, mid ships - better than the one we selected when we booked originally, and nearly $1k less! Thanks for the feedback.
