Ha - perhaps Stach ....but I think UMC did it right by totally hitting it out of the park the first time - and, wow - did they ever! Especially considering there were so many unknowns being the first cruise of its kind really - I remember so many of us wondering before the first sail date if such a feat could be pulled off, not to mention ending up being so super wonderful to boot!
Considering the line-ups for all four UMC cruises so far from my own taste perspective - they have all been excellent and there was/would be *more* than enough sets to keep me happy & occupied. In fact, when I look back at the first 2 line-ups - I'm bummed I missed some bands entirely. Some of those I've made up for by seeing on subsequent tours like one of Debb's favorites - Forbidden. (although I'm not a huge fan of this band - I still really loved their live show)
So, what's keeping me from being a perpetual autobooker of UMC cruises (now & down the road) is not about the line-up because I'm fairly certain there would always be plenty of music to keep me happy - but rather - about having a lot of other travel priorities (metal & otherwise). But, that's just my personal perspective - and I'm not sure how many others share it.
