    I'm not overly fussed about it this year - I guess after three cruises, I'm used to it :P

    I am actually hoping that we can break the record for longest-period-between-band-announcements, currently 98 days which is held by Barge To Hell.

    Only about 25 days to go :)

    I, too, am okay with breaking the record for longest-period-between-band-announcements. I mean... if they've got a juicy announcement now of course I want it, but we might as well push our announcements super close together for fall/winter by waiting just a little longer. One more month sounds about right.

    2016 - ???
    2017 - Likely my return :D .

    Andy can announce all the bands for the cruise one week before we sail and I wouldn't mind much (as long as they are bands I like, which is quite likely).

    And, just like Dallas, I'm kind of hoping we get to a 100 day drought.

    70K 2014 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2565)

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    I though you said we already broke the record? Or was that for 70K only?

    Also, it's unfortunate, but...this:

    Well and truly broken the 70k record (previous record was a mere 60 days - we are now at 74!).

    UMC record stands at 98 days though for Barge To Hell :)

    Of course they are two separate things :P even UMC count them as 2 separate things:

    "Are you ready for Round 4 of The Original Heavy Metal Cruise? "

    If they were not 2 separate things, it would be Round 5 :) :P

    Anyone remember this classic quote from the skipper?

    "I will more frequently announce that I have nothing to annouce from now on"

    His definition of "more frequently" is about the same as his definition of "soon" it would seem :lol:

    Yeah, but that's like if they set up the Wacken stages in the same location and calling it something else. Different name but really it's the same. Anyways, the only reason I'm still on this is cus we have nothing else to talk about

    hahaha.

    THE POINT NEEDS TO BE MADE. HARD.



    Yeah I'm pretty curious about information. It doesn't even cross my mind daily, though. Andy was really good about giving updates and info early on in the 2014 campaign. This summer drought is normal though. I imagine he's globetrotting, attending festivals, speaking with bands and agents, and hiring new UMC help. Either way, nothing for me to be worried aboot. I'm more worried about my bum cabin-mates actually getting around to giving me money....

    Good point.

    And, I understand that Andy marches to the beat of his own drum and all that, but if it was me, I'd kinda say exactly the above.

    ie.

    "This is your captain speaking, updates will be sparse to non-existent for the next 2-3 months as I visit festivals internationally in order to shore up the best lineup imaginable"

    Rather than what we had, of UPDATE, PHOTO, BAND, UPDATE, UPDATE, PHOTO, PHOTO, BAND, BAND......*radio silence*.....

    Good point.

    And, I understand that Andy marches to the beat of his own drum and all that, but if it was me, I'd kinda say exactly the above.

    ie.

    "This is your captain speaking, updates will be sparse to non-existent for the next 2-3 months as I visit festivals internationally in order to shore up the best lineup imaginable"

    :beerwink:

    Putting things in perspective, as someone else mentioned, this time of year is dry announcement-wise every cruise.

    2011 cruise - no announcements in June
    2012 cruise - Only 1 announcement in July (and none in November)
    Barge To Hell - no announcements in August/September/October
    2013 cruise - no announcements in August
    2014 cruise - no announcements in June/July

    And as we are moving into August, historically:
    2011 cruise - 3 separate announcements - Ensiferum, Marduk, and Korpiklaani
    2012 cruise - 3 separate announcements - God Dethroned+Tankard, Virgin Steele, and Cannibal Corpse
    Barge To Hell - none
    2013 cruise - none

    So, the last two cruises haven't had any announcements in August - doesn't sound too promising :roll: :lol:

    We'll break the Barge to Hell record. :headbanger:
    70K 2013 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2120)
    70K 2014 SURVIVOR (Cabin 2565)

    In perpetual post-cruise depression/pre-cruise anxiety.

    Doing my best to be there for 2015.

    Andy doesn't give a shit about us being pissed off.
    He promised a cruise with at least 40 bands in defined time and he delivers.
    The rest is not his priority.
    That's what he said to me some time ago.

    So, take a deep breath & go to any summer festivals or shows.

    BUT, SO many international acts touring Australia between now and the end of the year!! Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Devin Townsend, Amorphis, Stratovarius, Behemoth, Korpiklaani, Enslaved, Nile, Firewind, Kataklysm, Sirenia....

    That's fine with me, I'll be buried in college work this Sept and I could definitely use some thrilling announcements to break the monotony.
    2014 - Cabin 4537!
    2015 - Cabin 6471!
    2016 - ???
    2017 - Likely my return :D .
