    This year will be a WAIT AND SEE approach. I will not care for a huge discount. I think it is a disrespect with us how the handle annoucements(or lack of it).

    I really dont complain because I know this is the way UMC handles it and I still signed for it but I will wait for at least half of the bands to make a decision.

    I dont know if UMC does it on purpose or because the really dont have bands to announce. I overheard people from 2 bands talking about thier presence on the cruise and someone said that they were invited on sunday.

    Hope to see a good lineup for next year because the festval is fun because I dont have to worry about meals and accomodations....

    I am too old for camping......

    THIS. SO MUCH THIS.

    But yeah, the broken promises last year pissed me off. "present for veterans - it will be worth the wait!", "Frequent cruiser program", "announcements won't be drawn out like last year".

    With the Australian dollar plummeting against the US - its at 78cents at the moment, was at around $1.10 at the time of the first cruise - its making it more and more expensive, so I need more than broken promises and a half-decent lineup.

    Same in Brazil (currency stuation). I really don´t mind about the promises. I live in a place where LIES rules, so I live this everyday. The problem is not a broken promise, the problem is lack of communication.

    ex.: Financially the requent cruiser program can be placed or "presents" can be given for veterans? Just say so!!!!
    Are you having trouble announcing bands because they are asking too much or any other reason? Just say so!!!

    For me is only about Lineup. Next year: Good lineup and I am in and good lineup is bands I haven´t seen yet(like xentrix, Running Wild, K. Diamond, Hatchet, O. Gatherum, Wolfheart, Persuader, etc....).

    This year, I mostly went out of curiosity for the new boat, but the cruise ended up great with some major hiccups.

    - I finally got to meet some forumites (after almost 5 years) and either I was late or not a lot of people showed up
    - almost all the shows I went to were awesome, except for the first Apocalyptica show: waited 40 minutes to start, almost fell asleep twice during waiting and when they finally started playing all i could hear were drums (was sitting top left when viewing the stage)


    If I rate Majesty 10/10 after 3 cruises, I can't give more than 4 to Liberty and here's why:
    - on Majesty, I would go up to Viking Crown whenever (even 9 am) and I would get a drink, on Liberty, I went to Viking crown at 1pm, asked for a coctail menu and the bartender said:"no menu, don't know when we open." And that was during meet & greet when people were bound to drink. I went up to Viking crown that day twice and all I saw was people sitting behind empty tables and no bartender in sight
    - on the first day, I waited 20 minutes in Sorrento's, just to have some "manager" cut in front of me and tell the staff there to "close it up, we can't handle it". Luckily, some other guy who outranked this "manager" said they should stay open no matter what
    - bars were closing so early, I couldn't grasp that fact. It felt like RC didn't want my money. I ended up spending $200 less than I expected because of this
    - food in Windjammer wasn't bad, but compared to Majesty it was terribad. No diversity (anyone remembers thematic lunches and dinners on Majesty, from different parts of the world?). One day there was actually same food for dinner than it was for lunch (ribs)
    - there were no people running around, trying to get an order from me like on Majesty. Hell, there was even less people with carts filled with alcohol
    - some bartenders acted like metal heads shouldn't be on their boat. Snappy and rude.
    - Martha in Boleros (coctail mixer) was almost as good and kind as Leonora in Majesty's Viking Crown :D

    As far as UMC goes:
    - I felt sorry for the people who waited hours in line for merch. This year I went as late as possible and got all the shirts I wanted (was positively surprised to see Refuge merch and negatively surprised to not see (yet again) Annihilator merch)
    - please, please, please, announce all the bands no later than December, so people can get familiar with all the bands and maybe buy themselves some new CDs for X-mas
    - great running order, no conflicts for me except I missed bot Divided Multitude show, but I'll see them at MetalDays so no biggie there

    Too all the cruises:
    - in the future, remember not to have your SeaPass near your phone. At one time, when I was leaving my room, a girl brought a guy to her room for what could only be some sexy tiems just to cry out in despair when she couldn't open the door with her seapass, because it got demagnetized by her phone for the third time in two days :D

    This !
    It happened to me too after I put my card in the same pocket than my phone. I quickly went to store some stuff in my room between 2 shows and my card was demagnetized, I had to go make another one.

    YEP. Key tip I've learnt from previous cruises - take a lanyard, attach seapass to lanyard. Keeps it away from your phone, and always within easy reach, and secure.

    That's hilarious! That would be so awkward to bring a guy in and... Oh. I can't get to the bed.

    I just solved that by not bringing my phone at all though I understand some people have small children and significant others that aren't metalheads. Maybe RC should make it clear that phones can demagnetise the cards?

    I used my phone exclusively for pictures and videos. It was in airplane mode and everything deactivated all the time.
    It would have been nice to know since it seems to have happened to a lot of people in the previous cruise.

    I feel bad for that person that couldn't open her door.

    THIS. SO. MUCH. THIS.

    I deflected after my first cruise (2012) to Maryland Deathfest because of this.

    Andy, if you pay attention to just 1 thing please let it be this.

    MDF CONSTANTLY responds to questions or comments, ridiculous ones sometimes at that! I have gone every year since because of that fact (this year included). I do not ever foresee this changing.

    They always book two or three bands on my "list" every year, ten bands I have seen and like 30 I have never even heard or heard of before. Bolzer I had never heard of and a friend of mine told me he would pretty much murder me if I went to MDF and didn't see Bolzer. Blew my mind! I pretty much booked California Deathfest (an MDF event) to see Bolzer again.

    MDF is my cheat away & before the cruise because most of my cruise family attend too.

    I don't know what I was getting at but COMMUNICATION GOOD. :lol:

    These articles are very interesting.

    This one confirms that the reason the poolstage was delayed was because THEY STARTED TO BUILD IT WRONG!

    http://www.teamrock.com/features/2015-0 ... al-day-two

    And this one highlights that next year will "most likely" be the first week of February:

    I said that in the Facebook forum, I was told - and I trust the source - that the two guys who had all the know-how for the arrangement of the scenario quit their jobs just a few weeks or days before the cruise so they had to sort of improvise. And they built it the wrong way TWICE. Thus the delays.

    First off... I want to say I had a great time again this year. I have been on every 70K + Barge and I wouldn't miss this event for the world. That said..... I had asked just a few weeks ago about Andy's multiple comments that announcements would not drag out like previous years and I had asked about the "special gift" for veteran cruisers...... here is the response from UMC:

    HI David,
    Thank you for writing to us!
    We appreciate and understand your concern. Please hold on, the announcements are coming soon. The gifts are taking longer than expected to produce, but trust us - they are AWESOME!
    Looking forward to seeing you on board!
    Cheers,
    your Ultimate Music Cruises team


    "Trust us"........ That's the part that really gets me.


    Really, I'm not even mad anymore. I'm just disappointed. :roll:

    I was talking to the security guys at the stage just after it opened and they told me that the delays with the pool stage was because they didn't allow for the extra speed and therefore wind load on the new ship. So if they built it they way they planned it would have been to flimsy and therefore had to basically work out a redesign.

    " Victor Smolski will focus now on Lingua Mortis Orchestra but without Peavy and under a different name. "

    Well, I guess now Smolski will focus on LMO and Peavy on Refuge, which is pretty much old-style-Rage, and my guess is that both will release albums soon *focusing on the silver linings*

    We do the same thing. Dont spend over a grand to get to EU then sleep in a tent for a week :lol: a

    On the contrary, I don't go all the way to a EU festival to stay at a hotel, when there are plenty of hotels around London I can stay at any time. I want to get the full festival experience, and that includes camping. Plus it would be a major hassle and inconvenience trying to get back to a hotel at 3am unless there's one right next to the festival ground, which is usually not the case, so it's easier to just go back to a tent.

    For me "the full festival experience" does not include sleeping in a tent. And it's really not that difficult to take a taxi to town at, say, Summer Breeze.

    But, to each his own. Some enjoy sleeping in a tent on a mud field, some enjoy the comfort of a hotel with a nice, warm shower and a continental breakfast in the morning. :beerwink:


    Btw, the last time I slept in a tent was way back in 1996 when I was serving in the Finnish army. In the winter at -20 degrees Celsius. :beerwink:

    Good news for me personally. Refuge was amazing on the boat this year; and I thought Rage w/LMO was boring as hell last year...and if he wants to continue it, please hire string players who can play in tune...the out-of-tune playing was painful.
