    After the cruise, you might not want pizza for a month. It was so legendarily mediocre on the last boat that you could hardly tell it from greasy cardboard. But damn did it hit the spot at 2:00 a.m.

    I've honestly lost hope that we'll get most of the bands before the cruise. I really think that this time we'll get to know the last 20 bands once we're INSIDE the boat, not a minute before. I guess Andy is like the girls: he just wants to have fun.

    So, my realistic expectation is to get from two to four announcements between today and January 21st, and 20 more once inside the boat. Because fuck us, that's why.

    Also little bit of news from TANK.

    During the cruise there will be an exclusive performance to debut the entire new album to the fans on board as well as a second show of Tank classics from the past 30 years.

    Joining guitarists Mick Tucker and Cliff Evans on the new album will be vocalist and former Dragonforce frontman ZP Theart who has been a member of Tank’s touring line up for the past two years.

    Also new recruits Bobby Schottkowski, formerly of Sodom, and current Blind Guardian member Barend Courbois will be handling drum and bass duties.

    A pessimistic guess:
    On the morning of the embarkation day there'll be an announcement: "We promised you the same passenger to band member ratio as on all previous cruises. Well, we only really sold a bit under 2000 tickets, so you only get 38 bands."

    :P

    No special words to say, except disappointment. I've started to strongly tell my friends who were planning to go "one year" not to go.

    I just pictured something, half a dream, half a real possibility.

    20 bands (more or less) left to announce on the 21st. Then we go to the port in Ft. Lauderdale. We check in and pass the security check. And while we're walking to the gateway to the ship, we find that the corridor has been filled with posters, like the ones that have been used so far to announce the bands, only this time physical and real, announcing the remaining 20 bands. So Andy reveals 40 bands like every other year and the new 20 are announced in a new, different and surprising way.

    Something like this gives me confronted feelings. I find the idea cool and it even gives me chills... except that as I've always said, I want/need time to get familiar with the bands, and I would sure miss something out.

    It would also be a nightmare to get on the boat with people stopping to look at the posters and taking photos etc. of them.

    But that would be an awesome idea! Damn, now I'm hoping we don't get any more announcements before the 22nd. :lol:

    And the 21st band poster would be at the end, and would be the big gun :beerbang:

    Andy has let us speculate for several months. He's thrown some clues, some being very obvious (Divided Multitude) and others left for debate (Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray...). Plus, he's given us time to make some guesses based on bands' schedules (At The Gates...). So, while not 100% confirmed, we can still figure out some of the remaining bands. Besides, I'm sure he'll throw several big names of all genres to make sure this idea more or less satisfies everyone. Which doesn't mean we won't have fillers. Of course there's room for them, too :D

    Just imagine that among the 20 bands you end up finding Divided Multitude, Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray, At The Gates, Metal Church, Wintersun, Unisonic, Amaranthe, Eluveitie, Kampfar, Moonsorrow and The Sirens, for instance. Who would complain?? Meat for everyone :)

    The problem is the lack of communication.
    Anounce the last bands with posters ? I'm not a fan but why not if the skipper/umc would communicate about it, and they don't.
    Well, for the list, I remind you that last year, all was to say that revamp would be onboard (gap in their schedule), and they weren't on board.
    Come on, many bands must have a week free in january, which doesn't make them on board.
    Anyway, I'm so tired about this stupidity, it's not suspense anymore, it's pure mental illness, and for the next cruise I predict even worse.

    I have a bunch of bands already that I want to see, and I'm going mainly for the experience, so I'll have plenty to do on the Cruise, but that doesn't mean that this whole lack of announcements is ok. As FrencMacho said above, there is a serious problem with the lack of communication. I'm new to this whole Cruise thing, but as a consumer this strikes me as really incosiderate of the organization's part. This is simple: We bought something that we don't know if the other part will deliver, and this is unthinkable in common commerce, let alone on a vacation package. Imagine you buying a ticket to the opera that has III acts, but in the ticket it doesn't say if you'll get the chance to see all the acts or will end up leaving without seeing act III. This is the same thing. We've payed for 60 bands, and I don't know about you guys, but I didn't received any warranties that I'll get 60 bands.

    Here's hoping that everything I wrote above is just nagging and doesn't have any truth in it :belly:

    That's why it's called a PREDICTION or a RUMOUR, not a FACT. See the difference? :)

    Then go somewhere else, relax and stop torturing yourself. Many of us are or have been very pissed and disappointed because of the lack of announcements and communication, and like to bitch from time to time. You definitely take it to the next level in every post you write, dude.

    Freedom of speech is important - he is entitled to say his piece, even if you think he's going a bit too far.

    We've all invested $1,000s in this and we are entitled to bitch as little or as much as we want.

    Who is to blame for this? THE SKIPPER. He *knows* it REALLY pisses people off. And it would be very easy to reduce the bitching around here - ANNOUNCE BANDS :)

    Absolutely agree, word by word. But I also have the right to say what I think without being (excessively) offensive :)

    I actually wouldn't mind a few mystery bands that would be revealed once we're onbroad, as long as we're told in advance that it will be so. Doing all 22-24 remaining this way is a bit overkill though. :twisted:

    It would be easier for The organizer to come here and Just write:

    But he told that this year would be different. Thats the problem.

    Last year, Viking Bitch threatened to kick Andy in the balls because of the announcement drought. Maybe she'll really do it this year! I'd love to get THAT up on youtube :bitch:

    I'm flip-flopping. Sometimes I'm filled with rage at how Andy's holding back the announcements, and I really do think it's hurting ticket sales, thereby reducing the quality/popularity of acts he can afford.

    But right now, I don't care, and I'd be fine getting on the boat and seeing a whole bunch of surprise bands in the running order. That would be badass.

    It's going to be a blast either way and I'm looking forward to partying with you all, but it's still a piss-poor way to run a business and I probably won't book again.

    I am "working" with 40 bands(like the previous years).

    But in th future? I will wait for the annoucement of at least 1/2 of the bands.

    Bucket list bands are getting smaller each year!!!

    Yeah, for some of us, those thousands of dollars are a big deal. I'm 99% sure I won't be going next year, because it's just not something I can afford each year. I live in a city that gets metal shows pretty frequently, so I'm not that concerned. Honestly, I was just looking at BG's tour, and wondered what this was. It sounded awesome, so I hopped on board (soon literally) after seeing that past years included a lot of bands I like.

    But so far it's really lacking in the genres of metal that most appeal to me. I mean, seeing the couple of bands I do like, and maybe meeting some people, is still awesome. But it's not delivering what I anticipated. Or maybe it will. Ugh.

    i think the same. it 's the 5th and last time i go to this cruise. I wanted to see how it is in a bigger boat, but i m so disapointed that there is more than 20 bands to be announce 2 weeks before departure... it s a shame. next year i ll keep my money in concerts i like
