Choosing Cruise Ship Rooms: What is a GTY Cabin?

cruise ship roomsIs a GTY cabin right for you?

When planning a cruise, one of the first things you look at is the cruise ship rooms. For some people, it’s important to choose a specific room and location due to mobility issues or because they are part of a group that wants rooms near each other. Other travelers just want to have a certain type and size of room, and the exact location isn’t important. For those travelers, guaranteed cabins are a great option.

Happy Traveler Comment
Hi Rachel. Thank you so much for making such great arrangements for our NCL Pearl cruise. Everything went so smoothly for boarding the ship in Miami, all the in-between happenings, and departing from the ship at the end of our cruise. We really appreciated your picking our cabin for convenience. It was about 10 steps from the elevators. The NCL Pearl is a beautiful ship and our cabin was tops. We had great service and met a lot of new people. Thank you again for your great reservation services. I'll be happy to recommend you to any of my friends who are looking to do a cruise. — Marcie

What is a GTY Cabin?

Unassigned rooms on cruise ships are known as guaranteed staterooms or cabins. These GTY cabins are a perfect choice for many people and are booked without a specific cabin allocation. Knowing what a GTY cabin is will help make your cabin decision easier and your trip all it should be.

A GTY stateroom is one that has not been specifically assigned to a passenger. All rooms with certain amenities and of a particular size can be assigned or unassigned. This method of designating rooms is the technique cruise ships use to manage their stateroom inventory. If you reserve a GTY stateroom, you are guaranteed to get a room of equal or better value than you paid. The benefits of guaranteed cabins include the following:

  • Reduced price: GTY cabins sell for a bit lower price than other cabins with the same amenities, because the guest is not able to choose a specific cabin location. The cheaper price is the primary reason travelers choose this option. There is also the possibility of a room upgrade, but that is never certain. Choose the room you will be happy with, and if you get an upgrade, you’ll be even happier.
  • Guaranteed category: You are guaranteed to receive a room in the category your select whether it is an inside cabin, ocean view, or patio.
