What happened was I booked a AD mini suite guarantee, looked on the princess website and saw they had given me cabin D422 in an AA cat. Went back to the website a few weeks later and saw that this cabin/cat assignment was gone and replaced by a AC Guarantee. This was sort of disturbing to me because they gave me a nice upgrade then took it away... Ah well, being from Maine, and going on this cruise in December will be a treat anyhoot! :-) We will be celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary onboard the Golden! Dec. 14 sailing. Yippee!!!
If you booked a "guarantee", your stateroom assignment can be changed back and forth up til the day of sailing. A guarantee gets you at least the category you book or better but nothing lower than you booked.
