Survivors! Like every year it has been a blast and makes me feel so good to sail the Caribbean with my Metal Cruise Family. Seeing that you have such a great time is the biggest motivation for me to continue and keep on improving what I do.
Last year we had 70 Nations from around the Globe on board 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise and I truly thought there is no way we will beat that.

A special Thank You to all the members of my incredible crew! Despite the storm and the resulting last minute rescheduling, you made it possible that all 60 Bands could play their second show! Last but not least, Thank You to all the Artists and their Crew for 121 fantastic live performances including Jamming With Waters In International Waters, the Clinics, holding all the Meet & Greet and Signing Sessions and participating in all the other Special Events.
