    Particular cruise %

    Was checking my cruise on the Triumph and the Magic and in my particular cruises it shows a category column with percentages. What does that number mean? Is it 22% still available to book?

    I would like to know the % sign as well, instead of telling us to go to the FAQ, why not just tell us, just wondering....

    Ok,I looked in FAQ's and it states it is the % of availabile rooms.  Doesn't quite make sense on the one that I booked.

    I still don't get how this rates. How does my cruise go from 86% one day to 43% the next? Please help me to understand. Surely it isn't cabins available it wouldn't change daily that drasticly. Nor would the cabin category I wouldn't think.

    If there are not a lot of cabins left, it would be easy for the % to drop drastically!

    According to FAQ, the percentage indicates what percentage of cruise categories are still available, not percentage of cabins available.

    I read the FAQ on this, but I still don't understand the answer posted in the FAQ on What does the "Categories" percentage mean?

    It is only an indication of available cabin categories, not ship occupancy. Only the cruise lines have access to that strategic information. Still it can be an useful indicator of a cruise's success.

    Let me post my interpretation and can someone please confirm if the example below is the correct interpretation?  I will use the 12/1/2014 Royal Caribbean Liberty OTS as the example: 

    Right now, CF is posting 72% for this sailing.  If I check this cruise, this ship has 29 categories of room types: Presidential Family Suite (Category: PS),  Balcony Category E1, Interior Promenade Stateroom (Category: PR)...etc.  Therefore, according to CF's definition, is it 72% of the 29 categories room types, or approx 20 room types are still available?

    Would someone please elaborate if the above is the correct interpretation?

    Yes, that's what it means, 78% of room types are still available.  There could be one room of each type available or 100 rooms of each type available, only the cruise line knows for sure :)
