You have an amazing wishlist my friend - right down to your impossible dream.
With 23 bands to go, this is my dream remaining 23 of cruise-virgins:
Pathfinder - looking forward to what they produce with the new singer
Amaranthe - such a great guilty pleasure, and I think they would be fun to hang out with
Tarot - can never have too much Marco!
Thaurorod - would be fun live
Civil War - if we cannot have Sabaton, this would do nicely
Avantasia - a man can dream, can't he?
Powerwolf - recording in january so probably a pipe-dream
Van Canto - will be seeing them in Australia in 2015, but would be fun on boat
Neopera - simply amazing band
Heavatar - Van Canto with instruments!
Unisonic - I need to see Kiske live at least once in my life!
Ten - the new album Albion is amazing. I love these guys
Pythia - their new album is incredible
Within Temptation - will probably never tour Australia, so how about boat?
Dark Moor - another band that deserves a spot
Diabulus in Musica - Argia is a great album
Rhapsody (preferably Of Fire) - more Fabio!
Sleeping Romance - great little female-fronted band from Italy
Believer - come on, how about some Xstian thrasssssshhhhhhh?
Magnum - something for the old rockers (and another piece of the Avantasia puzzle!)
Twilight Force - we need something a la Gloryhammer, and these guys will do nicely
I've excluded repeats from the above, but repeats that are available (ie not Delain, Epica, Sabaton) that I'd love to return:
Sonata Arctica, Tyr, Gotthard, Lacuna Coil, Unexpect, Edguy
