Check out the FAQ page (at very bottom of homepage)on cruisefish.net It states that the precentages are "an indication of available cabin catagories, not ship occupancy"

Either way that is not great. Since it is a Med cruise if wont get a lot of late booking out of DCLs core marketplace

Exactly so. As long as there is one room within any specific category available, that category will show 100% available.

Yes, it shows availability, so if it says 41%, that is the % still available categories to be booked. My cruise is 90% open....makes sense since its a year and a half away.

Availability by category only though. 59% does not mean 59% of the rooms are available. It means that 59% of the categories have at least one room available.

Ahhh. Now that makes sense. I kept wondering if the robots were literally trying to book multiple staterooms in an effort to figure out how many cabins were left (not likely)

Still, it is a fascinating tool and a LOT of programming and research of each cruise line and their fleet went into this.
