    Looks like so far the cheapest cabins are going ,only in 2012 did the most expensive sell out soon after booking.Most likely because of Nightwish that year.Some of the other music cruises sell out quickly in the most and least expensive cabins,but with the double hit of price and currency costs rising for a great deal of the cruisers, seems like cheaper the better.Junior Suite Quad is a decent deal at $1199 ,better choice than the FO Quad at$1266 IMO.

    You need to get to the job seriously. There are much more sold categories and cabins than you calculated :D

    Really hard to tell with all the stupid new cabin classifications :P

    I mean, Ocean View G doubles and triples are listed as "sold out", as are Deluxe Balcony E1 doubles, yet I cannot find a single one of any of those on the deck plans :P :cry:

    ITS ALL TOO HARD!!! :lol:

    I believe some classifications don't exist ,they are just listed to give the pricing some kind of symmetry.This is the second year in a row a more expensive double is listed as "sold out" as a similar double.I believe they are only listed as a possibility of booking at a price.So let's say it is a week before the cruise and there are empty E1 cabins ,at that point you can buy them as doubles , but until then they are really only sold as triples or quads.If for some reason a booking request for a E1 Double comes in ,UMC tells them the same cabin is on sale at a cheaper price.Same exact kind of quick sell outs of cabins happened last year,also creates illusion of the boat selling out quicker.Also drives Statman to early grave making sense of UMC Marketing strategy ,I however am completely fascinated by the "Drunken Skipper Master" technique of marketing :dreams: :pound: ,my own term.

    The single male options are dismal now ,only Ocean View I and Superior Balcony D3 left in doubles .The $666 quad is still there along with s few others but I would only book a double.Neither of my former roommates is going this year ,both went last year and contacted me about going.I told them I had soured on cruise due to the 2014 experience,now it looks like last year has soured them.Now the lineup returns and will probably get better :cry: .I saw many veterans on Facebook site state they where not returning this year,when people like Pete state they where done ,figured neither one of my cabin mates where going.Ugh!People will bail out and I know cheaper singles will reappear,it happens every year ,discount is worthless now.

    Was looking to go as cheap as possible with an Interior M Double but they are all sold out now. Had to go the next step up to the Interior L Double.

    Was toying with the idea of opening up the wallet and splurging on a Deluxe Balcony Cabin but with the Canadian dollar sliding further and further with each passing day I can't justify spending the extra money.

    For the single traveler, the cheaper (sub 1000) rooms are practically non existent. The 766 Ocean View quads are still up, but who knows for how much longer. My funds for this trip won't be available for another week or two, so i'm thinking about just doing a payment plan and taking that initial hit, to try and prevent that additional 300 dollar hit from booking a more expensive room.

    If it happens, it happens, I suppose.

    That's basically me. With the stupid Canadian dollar and my need to have an interior cabin I'm basically out for this year - at least for the summer months. If things look better in the fall maybe I can be swayed.

    I'm sad about Bodom, but I get to see Insomnium FOR MY BIRTHDAY so that makes up for it. A bit.

    My best guess is that UMC did not allot enough singles in some categories,especially doubles.Give them time to realize what has happened,fewer wives attending with husbands,vets who hooked up with other vets not being able to do so and other things.Once the public sales begin and if they have too many private cabins available ,singles will magically appear.

    That would be cool, to see a few of the cheaper ones open up here in a little bit.

    D1 Doubles and Triples ,E3 Doubles ,M Doubles ,are gone now.Sales must be going very well ,singles are dismal ,check often to see in any cheap ones open up.Lasy year this happened ,but line up was really bad for people and single cruisers are more likely to cancel than private cabins.

    Genna Bain, John "Totalbiscuit" Bain*'s wife just tweeted her referral code and asked their fans if anyone would be going, since they had already booked for next year. That led to a crashing of the website.

    Not only is it hilarious, but may lead to a few more ticket sales than otherwise.

    I think now it is quite safe that say that sales are going slightly slower than last year.

    Last year one week after public sales opened, the maximum available was 802 cabins, this year its currently at 940.

    Not much of a difference, but its notable.

    Difficult to say, between the re-shuffling of categories and large uncertainty in the actual number of remaining cabins, I'd that the actual number sold is within the margin of error.

    Do you suspect it's directly related to how many bands have been announced this year compared to last year?

    I'm very interested in going for the first time this year, but becoming a bit frustrated by how information is disseminated. Seven days ago Tyr was was announced with the accompanying comment, "Who will be the next 10 on board...?" That would lead someone to believe they're about to announce the 10 bands. Yet we got Hammerfall the following day and then five days of silence. Strange.

    While your point is perfectly valid and understandable, trust me, it stops being strange after a while. This is how UMC works, and this is far from the worst we've had. It's quite lame and not very professional, but one gets used to it, and we know that in the end the lineup and the experience are totally worth it :D

    Agreed, I missed the first year I found out about the cruise waiting for band announcements and by the time I decided I wanted to go,it was too late. This will be my third year going and I've learned to just book it and trust Andy. It's hard at first, but so far he has always delivered. Also, this years bands announcements so far have been very good. More good bands will be coming for sure.

    Understood. Thanks for the reply.

    I suspect that's exactly what I'll do. And I agree, it's a fairly strong lineup thus far.

    This is what I'm hoping for

    Yeah as the others have said - this is nothing. "something" (no-one knows for sure) happened to the organiser ("the skipper", Andy) in 2013 and we got NO announcements at all - utter radio silence - for a period of 6 months! People were freaking the shit out. And we didn't get much of an explanation for it either, other than a 'sorry, was dealing with some stuff, won't happen again'.

    That one was an anomaly, but even in normal years we have always had to wait one, two or even three months between band announcement at least once at some point throughout the year.

    So, the initial announcements have given hope that this may not occur for once, but if we have to wait another couple of months before the next announcement don't be surprised!

    But don't stress either - it will work out in the end.

    BUT feel free to bitch about it, because that is what we do :bitch: :bitch: :bitch: :D :lol:

    Easy for you to say, the bands look like they were hand-picked especially for you. :lol: We are in need of that one special announcement that can win over the br00talz. Bolt Thrower?
