    Hope Andy and the crew have a well-rehearsed answer to the question of this silence come January, because every single person on the ship will no doubt ask them about it!!



    The only thing I know is that this Andy is a Businessman with a product. I will not bother anyone with a "silly" question because I will get a bullshit answer..rsrs

    If I decide to be on board, I simple agreed with his way of doing business but one thing is 100% certain: Booking another trip with months in advance will no longer be a possibility .....

    I just hope to get 40 bands with at least 20 of them being an actual band not rehearsal ones(with demos, poor recording CD´s)..

    I'm just wondering how involved/complicated/contentious contract negotiations with bands must be, that "might" explain the delays.

    84 days to go!

    28 (assuming 41) bands to go.

    Exactly 1 band every 3 days :|

    Although, it will be less than that because as its Sunday in Canada, there definitely won't be any news today.

    Last year did UMC do those cute destination heading posts where they were headed in different directions around the world in search of bands, then a little while later they announced bands from those areas? I really enjoyed those from the cruise in 2012. Since I didn't go in 2013 I didn't check for them.

    Yes they did do them.

    Just another way that this cruise's experience is less than previous years.

    Seeing as Motorhead's European tour was moved to Feb. 13, gives me a little hope that Lemmy may need a short vacation (rehearsal) on the Majesty to see if he is feeling up to a full tour :lol: :cheers: :beerhorns: Hope reigns eternal :headbanger: :givebeer:

    At least Caitlin is at work - I'm assuming she deleted all the kitchen spam.

    Now if only they would merge all the bitching threads (or even better - GIVE US A REASON TO STOP BITCHING!! :bitch:) things would be okay around here :roll:

    The only admin that even bothers to login to the forum is Caitlin it seems.

    Andy and Aaron have not logged into the forum in 3 weeks, and the new guy MykillinK hasn't bothered logging in for a week now either.

    So I hope they are paying Caitlin well because she is the only one doing anything for us :P

    I got an email from RC yesterday and they confirmed that the Majesty is chartered for the cruise! He was not able to inform of Port Schedules, but did note that it can take some time before all bookings are done. is it... Hope I feel??? :viking:

    The cruise is not going to get cancelled. I have faith that UMC will deliver again, but they're going to have to make some changes or book stellar bands butt early if they're ever going to get my business again.

    Btw, I have never called or emailed bugging Vincent or anyone for announcements because I know damn well it wont do any good.

    So Carcass have officially listed tour dates BEFORE the cruise, and AFTER the cruise.

    But they do not officially list the cruise.

    Another Kamelot, perhaps?

    Hopefully not :)

    Vikingbitch spoke in person with one of the band members of Carcass recently and he was cool with it, so yeah - fingers crossed for the Carcass fans.

    A lot of bands are doing that. It's not listed on Symphony X's site either but they've been contacted and there's no issues there.

    I came to check (hopefully) if there is a new announcement or at least noannouncement. And for a second, I thought I wandered into Ikea forums - kitchens, kitchens everywhere.

    As of 11/11, this is how things have appeared in previous years:

    2011 - 35 bands on the lineup (Voivod added on 10 Nov, followed by a 23 day drought)
    2012 - 28 bands on the lineup (announcement drought from 16 Oct to 07 Dec)
    2013 - 25 bands on the lineup (Unexpect added on 10 Nov, followed by an announcement drought of 42 days)

    So, never been a November announcement later than the 10th, but there has been an announcement on that day 2/3 years.

    In other words, given that weekend band announcements are VERY rare, if we don't get anything Friday we can forget about getting any bands until at least December :P

    Announcements in general are very rare.
    My prediction for the next one is January 27th 1pm. Announcing that more bands will be added soon, and that Kamelot has canceled.
