    I will not be canceling. I will go on the cruise and have a blast, as I've done on the past 4 cruises. What I won't be doing is blind booking. I will only go on the cruise again once I know there are enough bands I want to see in the lineup.

    Laura wrote:I know of three for sure because they posted as such on the FB forum fiends group: forum member evican (roller derby queen & awesome gal from Australia) & Eternity (Daniel B) & his wife from Canada. Also, I believe Dallas mentioned a few other Australians who cancelled. Don't know if Finnish (Grumpy :lol: ) Markku was ever actually booked or not, but he bailed for 2014 & is going to MDF 2014. (which I hope transforms him into Happy Markku!!)

    Thanks Laura :D Are You coming Baltimore next May ?

    Grumpy would've come with us if UMC had announced a couple of old school death metal bands. And to be honest, if I wasn't going with the Awesomevång brothers, I probably would have cancelled before Nov 27th. Not solely because of the lack of announcements - though that would be high on the list of reasons. Now that we're doing MDF and most likely include a few days in Iceland on the way to the U.S., I'm actually looking forward to that trip, not to 70k.

    I wrote this to UMC last Wednesday:

    [...] I am sending this e-mail because I would really, really like to know the status in which the cruise is right now. Me and my friends are DESPERATE because we haven't had any news and we have a very long trip to plan. Plus most of my savings are going on this trip and we need to make sure it will be as good as other years. PLEASE, don't give me automated answers. I beg you, don't just tell me "very exciting news will come very soon" or this kind of automatic stuff you always write. I really need to know what is going on, WHEN are the next announcements taking place (seriously, please, no standarized answers...) and what kind of bands can we expect. I'm really crossing my fingers so that you don't just get a lot of "filling" bands because you couldn't get anything better. Once again, I'm begging you, as a customer of yours, for you to give me a valuable answer. Thank you very much in advance.

    And got this reply today:

    Thanks for writing to us!

    No, its the exact same reply that ALL of us have gotten when contact them with similar concerns. Almost verbatim to my email to them and the reply.

    I LOVE how they addressed your concerns, and gave you the personalised response you requested rather than some generic response.

    Considering this is the reply I got from them to a similar email:

    Pitiful. Disappointing.
    But so was the customer service leading up to it.


    The stupidity of having Barge in December (just before the Holidays...people can't take off from work at that time of year), just a month before 70000tons (people can't spend that kind of money 2 months in a row) was astounding. Now Andy is going to cry about it? It's completely his fault. If Barge was in September, October, April or May, it too would have probably sold out...or at least sold considerably better than it did.

    Now he's proving once again what a lousy businessman he is. Even if he doesn't give a shit about us or the bands, he needs to at least pretend that he does. He's not going to have a very pleasant time on 70000tons with so many of us wanting to tell him a thing or two, and might as well not send any pre-booking announcements for 2015. I don't know of anyone who would take a chance with him again.



    This!! The Barge lineup was fucking awesome and I would love to have gone, but the timing of it was completely retarded. I couldn't get the time off work. If it was at a good date and I was trying to choose between lineup of Barge 2012 vs. 70k 2013 I would have sided with Barge in a heartbeat. I didn't book 70k because the lineup was quality, I booked because I thought the lineup was going to get get much better after Barge, and aside from 10 bands, I didn't think the lineup was that great, but I still had a killer time anyway. I'm sure if Barge was in March the turnout would be much better. Timing is everything. The timing for 70k being in the last week of January is as good as it gets.

    Yep - I know multiple people (unfortunately!) that have cancelled.

    None had any issues getting their money back.
