    Managed to upgrade my cabin from Interior L to the cheapest Ocean View that became available for free. I'm a very happy camper. :viking:

    I know it's not an exact science, but that number does seem low. I wonder if that means the last 20 bands announced will need to contain some significant acts? It would seem that with a half full ship, Andy is going to need to deliver some bands in the next round of ten that will get people off the fence and onto the ship.

    Yeah, but its fairly safe to assume that there would be only a handful of cabins left in each of those categories.

    Its impossible to know exactly how many remain, but for example given that Ocean View I *were* sold out and then became available again, it would be very safe to assume there are only actually 1 or 2 cabins available of the 66 of that type.

    Because really - lets face it, if people are not booked NOW its unlikely that even the biggest announcements would get many people to book at this late stage.

    This close to christmas when everyone has maxed out their credit cards, only a month away giving those that work little time to arrange leave, less than 40 days from needing to be there leaving international people little time to organise flights, accommodation etc.

    I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure most categories have few rooms left. I met Andy this year at Heavy MTL and I know a few friends who met him too, and this guy knows where he's going, despite what some people may think. You'll get those 20-22 announcements in time, even though we all would like to get em earlier. And I doubt the cruise will be half-empty! ;)

    As Junior Suite Quads and Ocean View H 'unsold out' we can assume there is only one or two of each of them available.

    I wonder if those Grand Suites got offered up to yet-to-be-announced bands?

    Still, its selling better than last cruise.

    With 8 days until 2015's sailing, unsold-out categories represented 528 cabins.

    Admittedly a newsletter sent out by UMC around the same time stated there were only 50 cabins left but we all took that with a grain of salt :lol:

    So yeah, we are at 491 cabins max with still almost a month until sailing this time around.

    Or UMC is shifting bands that are already booked to those Grand Suites to make room for other bands to come....maybe more Cripper award nominees.

    I'm sure it will end up selling out. There must be only a few cabins left, and many people agree that this is the best line up ever for this festival.

    I know on the other side the dollar is getting stronger and that might be stopping a lot of non-US potential cruisers, but I still think it will sell out.

    Given they’re likely still trying to sell tickets, it makes it all the more surprising that nearly one third of the lineup has yet to be announced. Presumably bands are booked because of their drawing power. And while I appreciate that the larger bands have likely been booked, it seems strange to be this close to the event and have such a significant portion of the lineup unknown. Which makes me wonder; are they actually still scrambling to sign bands at this point or are they already booked, but they’re holding off on making the announcements?

    I think they're comfortably past their break-even point and they're holding off on announcing bands because Andy.

    Don't know if you heard, but on the first 70K we drank more alcohol in the first day than had ever been consumed on any ENTIRE Royal Caribbean cruise before it!

    They had to restock when we arrived in Mexico :P

    I'd also guess they're at the break-even point. It simply strikes me as odd that they're holding off on announcing bands, as announcing sooner can only be beneficial to their bottom line.

    I can also confirm it is true. Last year the cabin across from mine was just used as a beer storage room. It was never listed as an available cabin on the deck plans via the 70K website. We watched them grab beer from the room a few times. After they went through all that was in it, they used the room to store beer for late night refills. The person running the stock room ended their shift before 10pm or so. They needed to find a way to get more beer when the stock room was unavailable. They used some of these extra cabins as extra storage.

    Couldn't resist chiming in with some figures :D

    So, the remaining available categories represent 615 cabins total.

    Of those 615 maximum remaining, as PR and JS Quads have previously been listed as sold out, it is safe to assume there are only 1 or 2 cabins left in each of those.

    So that brings the number of cabins remaining maximum down to 427 in E1 triples, D3 doubles, D1 quads, and Owners Suites (as none of these have listed as sold out yet, its hard to guess how many are left), plus a couple of PR and JS.

    Of those, even if you assume only 50% of them have sold (and I think its safe to say the figure would be much higher!) That puts it at around 214 cabins, plust the one or two PR/JS.

    Taking the different occupancies of each into consideration (doubles/triples/quads), that would represent about 500 cruisers out of a capacity of 3000 cruisers.

    So therefore the ship is AT THE VERY LEAST around 85% capacity. Comfortably past break-even point.

    If the band isn't playing in the U.S., they don't need a visa to play onbroad.

    You would have to assume they're not booked. Announcing the bands is the easy part and to do so would only be a benefit to the cruise in helping to sell the remaining cabins.

    That's how most people tend to think. Not at UMC, for sure. We've seen several cases where the bands were obviously booked way before they were announced. The most obvious example are Wintersun, which were announced last year just a few hours before the cruise departed and when all of us were already in Miami. Or NOW, when we all know Skalmold will be onbroad but for some reason it's taking ages to be announced.

    They were announced while we were having dinner the evening before departing. I can tell you for sure that's not when they were booked. They don't exactly live in Florida.

    They were booked only a couple of days before flying to Florida. So it's not like Andy sat on that announcement for ages.

    If the band isn't playing in the U.S., they don't need a visa to play onbroad.



    But for many countries the band members will need visas to enter the US.

    The bands all have to be booked already. It takes time to design and print those shirts, posters, programs... Etc with all the bands on them. Andy just likes to troll.

    We all know from previous cruises that it is not true.
    Some bands were asked to play 7-3 days before sailing date. Especially Florida based bands but also some European bands.

    Yup. The official 70K shirts have all the band logos on the back.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    That ain't wrong. Hmm... How could they print and ship those so fast?
    But the last person booked will be the proof reader on the program booklet :-)

    Printing booklets and t-shirts is fast. As long as UMC make the deal with the printer well in advance it's no problem, e.g. "we're going to print 3000 t-shirts, and the rear design will be ready two days before delivery". They can print the fronts long before and store the shirts until the back is ready.
