    For the last four years I've wanted to go on this cruise but I knew I couldn't afford it, so I never looked at the forums, etc. This year I finally booked (only 2 weeks ago!) and came here to these forums to get myself familiarized with the way things happen on the boat.

    Wow, I am surprised, to say the least. Baffled would be more accurate, actually.

    Now, I'm just theorizing here, but as I see it there are three likely scenarios for why the announcements are so late/slow:

    1) THE GOOD: There are a bunch of heavy hitters coming our way.
    --MAKES SENSE BECAUSE: No need for an early announcement because everyone is already familiar with them.
    --MAKES NO SENSE BECAUSE: Announcing these bands early would ensure an early sell-out, which would (I assume) be UMC's wet dream.

    2) THE BAD: There's a bunch of filler coming.
    --MAKES SENSE BECAUSE: Announcing these bands won't impact bookings in any meaningful way.
    --MAKES NO SENSE BECAUSE: These bands are exactly the ones that need the exposure, meaning that they would prefer to be announced early so that fans/potential fans can familiarize themselves with their music.

    3) THE UGLY: UMC has no firm contracts with any other bands, and is scrambling at the last minute.
    --MAKES SENSE BECAUSE: All the evidence points to an "organization" that is pulling shit out of its ass at the last minute.
    --MAKES NO SENSE BECAUSE: Everyone says "this is the way it always is every year; don't worry."

    Like I said, I'm just a newbie so I may be way off base with any of this. But damn it all, this is a hell of a way to run this show, and it's borderline insulting to the customers.

    Am I still excited? Yes. Am I going to have a great time? Yes. I will reserve my final judgement until after the cruise. But there's something very, very wrong with a promoter who sells a show which promises 60 bands but seemingly has a hard time delivering on that promise. Then again, there's something very, very wrong with anyone who pays several thousand dollars to go see some unknown quantity of unnamed bands. So there's that.
    #1 Well no, but you are FNG #2 is most likely because he has always meet the number of bands promised but #3 maybe this year because new ship equals more problems.The logistics of putting this together might have overwhelmed them ,I can see other problems coming also.Putting together 4 New stages at a new port on a new ship has epic snowstorm of epic proportions written all over it.This year is truly an experiment by people who might be a bit over confident.

    Nope, your second guess (video games) was closer.. we actually used to use this when playing D&D with a new player.

    You are right, the challenges of bigger boat/more bands/4 stages are a logistical shitstorm.

    Ah well, it'll be a blast in any case. Here's to hoping for the best! :whisky:

    I don't mean to be a spammer but I posted this on the main thread and it's a prediction, so here it goes:

    Before last announcement we had 15 bands left, and surprisingly the suitcase from the last announcement has 15 flags. Six of these flags belonged to bands from the announcement itself: ANVIL from Canada, THE HATE COLONY from Norway, GAMA BOMB from Ireland, SUBORNED from Switzerland, CLAIM THE THRONE from Australia and MONSTROSITY from USA. That leaves 9 flags left and 9 bands still to be announced. So yeah, I'm guessing we'll get one band from each of these flags, being my guess - with a lot of wishful thinking:

    Sweden - At The Gates (heavily rumored)
    England - Sylosis (some rumors)
    Denmark - Mercenary (please??)
    Israel - Amaseffer or Arafel (pure guess)
    Colombia - Nova Orbis (not a single clue so random guess) - Although might be Masacre from the previous suitcase
    Belgium - Aborted (random guess)
    Finland - Sonata Arctica (heavily rumored)
    Poland - Pathfinder (please??)
    Germany - Gamma Ray (rumored) - Although might be Abandon Hope from the previous suitcase

    If the whole flag thing is not a clue, these are what I perceive as the most plausible of the remaining predictions. 11 to give us 62.

    Amaranthe - said "maybe next year" when asked about 2014
    At The Gates - have a very 70k-sized gap in their busy tour schedule
    Eluveitie - start tour of Europe shortly after cruise
    Gamma Ray - Numerous people told they will be on broad
    Kampfar - cruiser heard at Summer Breeze they were booked
    Magnum - just because I want it to happen and it would make me happy
    Moonsorrow - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Morgoth - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Rhapsody Of Fire - pure speculation (UPDATE - "on board for sure" according to one cruiser)
    The Sirens - touring shortly after cruise.
    Sonata Arctica - wanted to be on 2014 but "the promoter went missing"

    Just wishful thinking on my behalf :(

    In reality we'll get one or two of these - probably the brutal ones :( - a few unknowns, and a few florida death metal bands.

    They have removed the name "Nuclear Assault" from the Whiplash official website.
    May be it was a mistake but how did they recognize it ?
    I guess Andy has more time to make a band remove a future anouncement rather than make those anouncements :shock:

    Like I posted on the main thread: 50% chances of the Nuclear Assault removal being a cancellation vs. a hush surprise.

    10 to go to make 62 - the most likely? Not really as I think this is too 'top heavy'. All these bands would easily justify 60 minute sets.

    But, these are ones that are either almost obviously on broad due to their touring schedule, or have directly told people previously that they would be on:

    Amaranthe - I'm mainly leaving this here as it would be my #1 bucketlist band :P
    At The Gates - have a very 70k-sized gap in their busy tour schedule
    Gamma Ray - Numerous people told they will be on broad
    Kampfar - cruiser heard at Summer Breeze they were booked
    Moonsorrow - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Morgoth - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Nuclear Assault - briefly listed on the Whiplash website
    Rhapsody Of Fire - pure speculation (UPDATE - "on board for sure" according to one cruiser)
    The Sirens - touring South America shortly after cruise.
    Sonata Arctica - wanted to be on 2014 but "the promoter went missing". 70k-sized gap in their busy tour schedule

    Good point - I'll substitute that for Nuclear Assault as that one could very well have just been a mistake:

    Amaranthe - I'm mainly leaving this here as it would be my #1 bucketlist band :P
    At The Gates - have a very 70k-sized gap in their busy tour schedule
    Gamma Ray - Numerous people told they will be on broad
    James Riveira Somethingoranother
    Kampfar - cruiser heard at Summer Breeze they were booked
    Moonsorrow - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Morgoth - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Rhapsody Of Fire - pure speculation (UPDATE - "on board for sure" according to one cruiser)
    The Sirens - touring South America shortly after cruise.
    Sonata Arctica - wanted to be on 2014 but "the promoter went missing". 70k-sized gap in their busy tour schedule

    The drummer from Wintersun/Nightwish Kai just posted over on Facebook that he's taking a trip for about a week. I hope this means so good news for us but I'm not getting hopes up too much. I would completely lose my shit if either Wintersun or Nightwish are announced for this.

    That would have been my main question about Wintersun.If he posted that today and Nightwish is doing nothing, would almost guarantee them playing.

    Blind Guardian - were hotly rumoured to be on 2014
    *Chimaira - added to this list as they were rumoured for 2014
    Corrosion of Conformity - want to do a reunion on broad. Have not heard back from UMC though.
    Divided Multitude - Scouting party clue
    Heathen - pure speculation
    Helstar - Actively looking to be on broad again
    Korpiklaani - pure speculation
    Melechesh - told a cruiser they would be on broad
    Pretty Maids - because obvious clue was obvious
    Primal Fear - new album out. Have said they want to do 70k
    Riot - were in contact with UMC for 2014
    Soulfly - Mexican tour starting early February
    Venom - guitarist told a cruiser recently that they would be on broad
    Wintersun - pure rumour :)

    Bumping this ,not a rumor this was supposed to be and still is the date as far as I can find out now.Can't see Royal Caribbean kick people off a second cruise and then re-sell this again.Who knows but I expect selling to be just like last year with no warning what so ever.Just a "hey sales start, here are the bands ,get your tickets before they go public "

    If he would try to move the cruise to February 4th ,the cruise would be at sea on Super Bowl Sunday.For Americas football is own main religion and I could see quite a few people not going because of this.

    The word from the press conference was, different ship (same size) as the Liberty is being re-positioned to Texas.

    Cruise will be a couple of weeks later in early February - no official reason but Blind Freddy could see it is so it doesn't clash with NAMM.

    Nah the Majesty thing pure rumour and heresay.

    Wouldn't make sense - with so many more veterans now, if they went back to 2000 cruisers, hell the boat would sell out before any newbies got a chance to book :P
