    Looking on the brightside, back when Carcass was announced we had 254 days to go and 26 bands to announce. A band, on average, every 9.7 days.

    NOW, we are down to 142 days to go, and still 26 bands to announce.

    Thats a band every 5.4 days :)

    Yeah I know, I'm fucking clutching at straws here :P

    Look I'm down with the fact that Andy is busy, and I know 100% after 3 knockout 70Ks that 2014 is gonna be awesome, but does anyone think that UMC are damaging the brand with their tomfoolery this time around?

    There is so much competition out there now, that the other cruises must be rubbing their hands with glee. I mean, UMC made that not-so-subtle dig at other cruises last time around about how UMC "spare no expense to even take out the seats in the theater".

    If I was running one of those other cruises bite back and say stuff like "we may not spare no expense to take out seats, instead we employ more staff so we can announce our bands in a timely fashion".

    Merchandise idea

    by carlynjason » Mon Sep 09, 2013 3:47 am

    OK so we are all a bit peeved with lack of announcements so ..
    T-Shirt ideas
    ATM i think a t-shirt with the date of cruise and a big nasty boat on the front
    and a "fill in bands here on the back"
    free permanent marker with t shirt.
    just make it up, wear it around, consider it an official T - shirt :)

    this is just for fun, but as with all forum items best suggestion will win a prize
    will be crap, like a coldplay cd or a taylor swift dvd..... maybe a big ass drink if you would prefer:)

    Cruise cancellation rumor

    by lampropelma » Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:13 am

    Hello

    Have you seen on facebook, there is a rumor that the cruise will be cancelled. Is it just a rumor or more of that?

    Andy is making alot of people extremely angry, and is going to have to take the heat on the cruise. The longer he ignores us now, the worse it's gonna be for him on the boat. The heckling during the final speech should be "interesting".

    I don't hear Royal Caribbean complaining either. Well, the crew might a little with all the spilled beer and whatnot.

    But seriously, calm down. If everything we see on FB is true, we are all fucked.

    There will be a few major bands announced and we will all forget about this dry spell.

    This is the one that concerns me...They are booked for San Juan, PR on January 31st, which is the day the cruise is back in Miami. Are they going to get off the boat, retrieve their equipment, and fly to San Juan on the same day for a gig that night? Now I'm truly concerned. HEY UMC...WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON???????

    I'm not going this year, but I would feel bad for all you that prepaid for everything. I actually do think it's cancelled. You don't even know where you're going yet. That kind of has to be planned WAY in advance..........

    I'm not going either, but I don't think it's cancelled. I've been reading on the facebook pages the emails that various folks have gotten from UMC (where they post the response verbatim, albeit a "canned" response from UMC) - and if those responses are truly BS (as in "the cruise is *not* cancelled" and so on) - then I think that would be truly dastardly - on UMC's part and even more so - quite surprising & unexpected. Time will tell folks - keep positive folks.

    Bloody hell - I threw $150 at the Prog Nation at Sea cruise as a deposit and I wonder if that shindig is actually gonna be pulled off in the eleventh hour (kinda how I felt before 70K 2011!) - are there really 2000+ folks who are into that line-up/niche cruise as much as I am? I really have NO idea, but I'll roll with whatever happens. I'm really over sweatin' just about anything that comes my way. :beerwink:

    Highly doubt it's cancelled. There's the usual lull in bookings right now because of the lack of announcements, and because the initial rush is over, but it seemed like this cruise sold tickets way faster than any previous one during the first month?

    No its not...MDF is at the end of May, four months later than 70k.

    So I find the whole discussion a bit disturbing. In my opinion that's not a very supportive attitude towards the customer. Either UMC it is already so bad that all is lost anyway or where it is still so good that they did not really need to cater for positive publicity. :evil: :cry:

    I don't think the cruise will be cancelled either, but I know for a fact that one or more bands (announced and not yet announced) are seriously thinking of pulling out the cruise because they don't get any news from UMC either. And this was told to me directly by the band members in question. Sucks. Really sucks.

    Its kinda unbelievable stuff from em tbh. I Mailed UMC 4th of Sept to ask whats up. Got answer pretty fast:

    Hi Mikko,

    Thank you for writing to us!

    We understand your concern, more band announcements and details on the location voting will be up on our website very soon. Hang in there!

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us any time.

    Cheers,

    your Ultimate Music Cruises team


    Then i wrote stuff back and also "Good to hear, would be nice to that u'd inform other people too via twitter/forum/fb etc that "hey we're back from holidays"." and i got answer back very fast as well:

    Thank you, we have taken this into consideration and will be making a post very soon

    See you on board!

    Cheers,

    your Ultimate Music Cruises team


    6 days later & still nothing. How bad you try to treat customers really? What the fuck there is to consider actually, customer service people can't come and say hello to forums? With fast ( 1h within initial e-mail give or take ) answers clearly there is people working but postin' nothing here or any other soc-med is beyond my understanding. And far from decent business by any spectrum.

    There is few other interesting festivals for me within 1 year and basically I can only afford one. There is prog-nation few weeks after 70kt, In a month there is Shadow Gallery ( nr. 1 spot on my WANTED: Live -list ) & Fates Warning at Mid-Europe and in a year there is Prog power USA with Seventh wonder, Jon Oliva & Pain of Salvation playing some of their top albums fully on that show. So time is of the essence here and I need to choose very soon.

    My guess is swallow the sun and Wintersun.
    Just a guess

    Swallow The Sun is in Mexico City with Finntroll on 1/25. I don't know STS's music, but it would suck if Finntroll pulled out. Maybe it's Leaves' Eyes.....

    I wish I could give you names... but I'm not really allowed to. :S
    You should hear the news soon concerning the already announced band... They seemed to have pretty much made up their mind. :(
    As for the unannounced bands, we'll wait and see if things settle. I really hope they find a way because one of them was in my whishlist!!!
