    Dissapointments:
    -some bands playing identical setlists between both of their sets
    -some bands playing primarily newer music, as if it were a regular tour stop to promote their latest album
    -Cozumel

    Regrets:
    -being too much of a lurker and not really 'meeting' much of anyone
    -missing karaoke (not necessarily participating, but at least viewing what I hear/read became quite a spectacle)
    -seeing various members of bands but keeping to myself, with the thought that they were on vacation just as much as I was
    -the excursion that I took to Cozumel (couldn't have known how lame it was going to be though!)

    Surprises:
    -how well everything was pulled off in the end
    -how chill everyone seemed to be onbroad
    -how awesome dining in the Starlight Dining Room was

    Regrets:
    missing the entire first night after almost 24 hours of travel
    Missing Blind Guardian's second set after passing out in my cabin
    Only getting one merch shirt
    Getting off the ship at Cozumel

    Surprises:
    The two lovely German(?) gents who helped me down the stairs from deck 9 to deck 6 before I passed out; wish I could meet them and thank them again.

    My main disappointment will be that I can't go this year. Also that the cruise wasn't total chaos. I morbidly expected to fish people out of the ocean, storing the dead in the walk-in cooler, brawls, vandalism, arrests, and the ship listing back to port on fire. I guess I thought it would be like a Raider or Eagles game x10.

    No real regrets. I had a great time even with none of the above happening.

    My main surprise was Cripper. Great band.

    I had bier the whole trip. I'm assuming he means certain kinds of bier as I know they ran out of Foster's pretty quickly (didn't drink any of it myself). I believe they restocked in Mexico.

    Disappointments
    Not many, as everything was LEGENDARY, but....
    - Having to miss most of Sonata’s second set so as to queue for one of the autograph sessions.
    - Gamma Ray playing two mostly the same sets

    Surprises
    - How epicly awesome Tyr and Sabaton are live
    - How smoothly everything ran, all things considered

    Regrets
    - Not getting to catch any karaoke
    - Not catching up with enough forum fiends :cry:
    - Missing Joakim’s dip in the pool at the end of Sabaton’s pool deck show
    - Missing Uli Jon Roth
    - Not getting a good photo with Simone Simons
    - Not being able to find a video anywhere on youtube of me screaming into the mic with Mikael during Dark Tranquillity’s indoor show

    I've heard so many great things about Cripper - too bad I missed both sets - I know one set was too early in the morning (still sleeping) and the other set must have been a conflict with somebody else. I third the idea of wanting to go on as many of cruises as possible :cool: , although I might sit the 2013 out as well (especially if Barge to Hell pans out to be too good to miss next fall).

    There's only 2 things that will get me on the 2013 cruise.

    1 is a relatively significant change in my income situation such as taking a 2nd/part time job
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    There is nothing that would keep me away from going in 2013. UMC is stuck with me every year from here on out.

    I would like to be a lifer, but if I did, I would never get to see any of my favorite bands since most of them are too underground for the cruise to consider booking and most of them will never come to the US, but since Blaze Baylay is doing a US tour as we speak and Wizard has been announced for a US show next year, some of the bands I thought would never see might actually happen now with out me swimming to Europe.

    Cool!! I cant wait to see either band, having bands come over from Europe is the only bright spot about the US economy turning into a third world economy. Just think how many bands I will see when the Peso passes the US dollar like the Canadian Dollar already did.

    so what is the 2nd reason? I'm guessing it's mildly to moderately "creepy" otherwise the drama queen would have divulged the answer in the first place. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I third the idea of wanting to go on as many of cruises as possible :cool: , although I might sit the 2013 out as well (especially if Barge to Hell pans out to be too good to miss next fall).

    They were one of the tightest bands on the cruise that I saw play. :headbanger:

    Yeah, I am planning on going to Vegas for RollerCon in July and then two months later I am going somewhere in the Western Region for WFTDA Western Regionals, so I will probably miss 2013 due to this. However, if I don't have enough money for Western Regionals come September, I may decide to do the cruise in 2013 and then do Western Regionals in 2013.

    Wait, what? I didn't even realize wtf was going on here or that it pertained to my post.

    Can't recall what I was even thinking when I posted that but yeah, probably creeper related :twisted:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    I was disappointed in the food. For some reason before the cruise after talking to other people who had done things like this I somehow got the impression that there would be food (and lots of it) available 24 hours a day. It was frustrating that it seemed like I was always catching the very end of breakfest, lunch or dinner and the dinner I had in the big dinning room sucked.

    I regret not seeing Destruction, the only band I wanted to see but missed...I landed up falling asleep in my cabin and not even hearing my alarm.

    Suprised by how smoothly everything ran...I was expecting bands set times to be way off schedule or some kind of major technical screw up and besides Exodus starting a little late everything pretty much on the clock.

    I was happy with the food at the buffet. Sure, the minute steaks and some other meats could have been better, but all in all it was good. I mostly ate fish and greens, and those were good. The breakfast wasn't that good though, but they had pineapple and watermelon, so that too was tolerable. And the screwdrivers at breakfast (with fresh-squeezed orange juice) were mind-blowing.
    The Spectrum Lounge's a/c was set on way too cold.

    Aah, smokers. You dumb fucks, do you really have to smoke EVERYWHERE? I hope smoking won't be allowed anywhere inside next time.


    Other than that, everything went really smoothly.

    Smoke only in your cabin, nowhere else should be tolerated. Those caught smoking are forced to attend the Hammerfall an Stratovarious gigs. :P

    One regret that comes to mind is not recognizing all but the singers of my favorite bands. Kind of embarrassing. Thankfully there's a thread for that now.


    That is also my biggest regret. I'm gonna bump the other thread!

    One thing that I didn't even realise for the entire cruise was that all of the band members wore special wristbands which makes it a little easier to separate them from the fans. Will still need to do some study before January.

    I understand that non-smokers hate breathing in that shit, and it may be a disgusting habit, but I'd like to think that I'm not a dumb fuck. I'm a respectful enough smoker to agree that smoking should only be allowed in designated areas outdoors.

    You're one of the good ones. :cheers:

    Good point to remind folks of this:

    Andy wrote:I am aware of the smoking issue. As per rule of the cruise line the only places you may smoke inside are the Casino and on the starboard... starbroad :lol: side of the Boleros, Spectrum and Viking Crown Lounges. I do however also understand that half of the people do not even realize in what direction the ship is moving when inside... so where is left and where is right...?

    Uncool however was the fact that some people did not respect that the Chorus Line Lounge is a non-smoking venue. The ones mentioned before have tables where one can place an ashtray... how do you want to do this in the Chorus Line Lounge? Result: the butts end up on the carpet... really not cool! I hope people will respect the smoking rules better next time since I don't think it is in anyone's interest that I hire 20 more security to enforce stuff like smoking rules.

    :cheers:
    I should get around to updating my signature
