    How fast will 70K 2013 sell out?

    by cowboy71 » Wed Jul 04, 2012 1:41 pm

    A few categories sold out already - all of N and I, 224 cabins already!

    70K 2013 has almost caught up to Barge To Hell in the sold out categories - both have sold out of Interior N and Ocean View I, but BTH has sold out of Interior M Doubles (44) as opposed to 70k 2013 selling out of Interior M Quads (19).

    Pretty sure 70k 2013 will overtake Barge....SOON.

    Type / Double / Triple / Quad
    Interior N / 53 / 15 / 35
    Interior M / 44 / 20 / 19
    Interior L / 52 / 18 / 12
    Interior K / 123 / 10 / 25
    Ocean View I / 76 / 22 / 4
    Ocean View H / 104 / 8 / 10
    Ocean View G / 88 / 6 / 4
    Ocean View F3 / 54 / 0 / 0
    Ocean View F2 / 166 / 0 / 0
    Ocean View F1 6 / 20 / 18
    Superior SO / 84 / 0 / 0

    Junior Suite JS / 50
    Grand Suite GS / 8

    Total Cabins: 1154
    Number Sold Out: 224

    Maximum Number of Cabins Remaining: 930

    We were at a similar figure of cabin category sold on April 25 last year (sales started early April)

    Interior L (Quad) - 11
    Interior K (Quad) - 20
    Ocean View I (Double and Quad) - 76
    Quad GS - 1(?)

    Total - 294

    Around this TIME last year, sales were double what they are at the moment:
    Thu Jun 30, 2011 4:55 am
    Ocean View H Triple rooms are now gone. There were only 8 of them.

    Interior N - 103
    Interior M - 83

    Will be interesting to see where sales for 70K are at this time next week, once sales for non-veterans have commenced.

    Noticed the Barge/70k sales comparison yesterday! Unless BTH starts selling more quickly it wont surprise me if it actually gets canned! Would they still sail with a half full boat? I have my doubts!!

    Barge has been in the background ever since the first announcements for 70K came, so I would expect 70K to get the bulk of the bookers for now. As it did last year, after the initial surge things will probably slow down. Once we get some more Barge announcements, I figure bookings will pick up again.

    I'm hoping the Barge does good. I am 100% not going on it myself, but enough people are looking forward to it that I would hate to see them get shafted.

    Good for 70K. Bad for Barge. We need Barge sales to pick up.

    The Barge won't sell out for sure sure unless they book some bigger Extreme bands that cater to wider audiences.
    They need to book something like the Death to all show or Immortal to sell this one.Or possibly resort to booking some melo death bands.And i don't mean Amon Amarth.I don't think even they can make the Barge sell out.
    Also too many thrash metal bands and IMO thrash is dead and has been for a long time .It had a brief mini revivial. It isn't a strong booking point.

    :lol: Well the money isnt a problem, just the timing at the minute as there has been a lot of cuts at work with people getting laid off. Hopefully we should be ok from what people say, but you get what I mean. Will try and get a deposit down in a couple of weeks :cheers:

    I think that the main reason that the Barge is not selling well is due to the horrible timing of the cruise. It is impossible for anyone who works in retail/grocery in the U.S. to get the first week of December off. For one, it's during the Holiday season, and retail stores will not let anyone request time off from Thanksgiving to X-Mas without severe consequences. The 2nd reason is that at the first of the month, the people get their food stamps and all the grocery stores are fucking nuts for literally the first 10 days of every month. I work at a grocery store and am not allowed to request the first 10 days of the month off. For me the Barge could not be at a worse time. If the Barge were to be at the End of October, then I would definitely go to that instead of the Unicorn infested 70k.

    However, as someone else stated in another thread on this forum site, I'm also going for the people. The bands are a huge plus, but it's also the people that really matter. Lots of good drinking buddies were onbroad last year and most likely will be so again. :3drunks:

    Hardly any unicorn material on there at this point.

    Agreed on the bad timing, though. It's tough for a lot of people to get time off that close to the holidays. That, and many people already are using time for the holiday season themselves with other plans.

    I agree. I'm going to have to work on Christmas, which is the only holiday I actually care about to be able to go on Barge, which means I won't be seeing my family in Mexico which I only see twice a year to begin with. This will possibly be my only Barge, because of the dates.

    7 metal fests that needs 1 to 5 days and a Colorado beer trip = the end of vacation days

    Working the whole July part from the day I move (yet more vacation dissapearing, sigh) and the whole x-mas and new years might be sucky, but hey, I get to go on both crusies, several otehr fests and a kick-ass beer trip to Colorado, I'll have fun!


    It is highly unlikely that I'll go to Barge if it returns next year and is located around the same dates, since I hope to be in school and will likely be in my first intern period, one of the big reasons why I didn't dare accept the school this year.

    Also it will be difficult to say if I could do any cruises at all during the time I go to school, since it might interfere with the intensive weeks I need to be onsite at the school, or one of the internship periods.

    But at least I'll be on the first Barge and I'll be a three timer veteran on 70k soon enough!!

    I wouldn't complain too much, you seem to have more vacation than anyone else on the forum ;) I'm sure you'll find a way

    Yup. Though with the high costs it's not as easy for everyone to go every year like the European festivals, so I don't think it'll be the case.

    likely so yes

    Wacken for example sells out so fast every year now it's almost silly

    Yes,

    I'm actually not very interested in going on Wacken. Too big for my tastes.

    70K>>>>>>Wacken


    I don't think they are comparable because they are such entirely different experiences. I absolutely loved Wacken the two times I went and know for certain those trips will always go down in my memory as two of the greatest experiences of my life. But after going twice, I'm feeling very "been there, done that" and don't feel the need or desire to go again. To boot, seeing Tiamat do Wildhoney in its entirety, the epic Corvus Corax at 2:00 am, and Immortal headline in 2010 left me on such a Wacken high note, I want to remember it that way and now consider myself officially retired from the big W. :lol:

    Of course, the cruises have been amazing as we all know and great for North Americans because of the proximity. But, I gotta say that since Barge will be my third UMC cruise in less than two years, I'm thinking "three's the charm" for me and it will most likely be my last UMC cruise at least for the foreseeable future. This is not because I don't love it of course, but more about the long bucket list I have and numerous plans in the hopper for the next 10 years, personally and with my family. The other part is that I've always been the kind of person who likes to seek out new and different experiences, and well - there's always limited time and money, ya know?

    Anyone relate to what I'm saying?

    Hmmm... with the rate of sales going the way they have for 70k 2013, I may have to get our home away from home booked before August.

    Yup. Looks like there will be fake mustaches and a sippy cup on 70k 2013.

    it is almost like a pilgrimage indeed, one should've seen the Wacken grounds at least once in ones metal carreer

    On the other hand, I hope this saying will go for 70k in a few years too, and I can loko back and say I was part of teh first ones and then sit down and complain on how it's growing bigger and is not magical any more :D

    wise words gnoff but where else is it possible that back to back plays bands like amon marth and Machine Head
