    People You Met on the Boat?

    by EpidemicReign » Fri Jan 30, 2015 3:39 am

    I apologize if there is already a thread that serves this purpose, but I wanted for those of us who met awesome people on the cruise to have a way to connect with others they've met.

    Copypasta from my facebook:

    I met 70000 tons of awesome people on the cruise this year and I want to mention some of them, to see if any of you know them and can perhaps connect me to them via Facebook! I may be spelling some names totally wrong so forgive me in advance...
    First of all, four dudes from New Hampshire (USA) by the names of Andy, Tyrus, Shorty (actual name might be Sean?) and I forget the last guy's name. I ran into these guys several times on the boat and talking to them was always a great time.
    Two buddies from Austria who stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn where I stayed as well the night before the cruise. Their names were Kevin and Jorgen. Very nice guys who I bumped into daily on the boat!
    A very cool couple from Switzerland named Lucas and Jackie. Probably somewhere in their 30s. Lucas is the spitting image of a young, wartless Lemmy Kilmeister.
    And finally, a young pink-haired German gal named Annie. She was roaming around with a friend or two and possibly a significant other. I partook in the fantastic Twisted Sister elevator ride with them (if you witnessed it, you know what I'm talking about and you either loved it or hated it but we had SO much fun).
    Those are just a few of the new friends I made onboard. If anyone knows any of these people, please tag them here! Thanks.

    I actually didnt meet too many new people this cruise. I took it really easy this year. Met a couple new Canadians and an Estonian guy but that was about it. If I wasn't at a show I was getting food or in that British style pub that I still don't know the name of.

    Oh wait I think I very briefly met Jotunheimer before Alestorm? If that was you my bad man, I was exhausted and had to piss soo bad haha.

    I probably saw you guys in airports and such.

    I couldn't find forum people anywhere, but met a lot of cool and interesting people. Who here was hanging out at karaoke?

    I spent very little time there. I was at the Taco Bar a couple times, and there briefly before we took a cab to the port, but that was about it.

    Most of the loverly people I met I've managed to find on Facebook but I am looking for a lad with a large Mjolnir tattooed on his back, Dutch, shirtless, likes hot tubs and beer? (That totally narrows it down)

    I met heaps of new people this year - even one dude that recognised me from last.fm of all places :P

    And I got to finally chat to some old forumites that I've know since day one yet hadn't actually chatted to before in person, even though I've been on every cruise hahaha.

    It was really cool to hear "hey statsman!" or "are you cowboy?" and things like that as I wandered around the ship. Normally I'm really shy and introverted so it was good to kind of be forced out of my comfort zone :)

    Haha no worries man, I was in line to buy drinks for the show. Nice seeing you! Ran into Statsman on the first day (I think) after I commented on his Delain shirt in the Promenade. I saw Joey (Stained Class) in the casino a lot during beer pong games. And I met Krys at the Riptide, where she eventually let me and my friends crash (Thanks Krys!). Other than that, I saw Dan from Wales pretty much everywhere I went, but I forgot his name on here :oops:

    I met a very friendly, older Aussie dude and a younger Aussie dude, the latter I played volleyball with at the beach party. Well, near to it at least. Also met Jamie and a father and son from Argentina at the Pirate party and said hello to the blond girl who is around here. On the ship, I think I saw Memnoch in a Delain shirt, but in my memory I saw like three guys who could've been him at Summer Breeze so wasn't 100% sure about saying hello. Also saw probably the Razor fan guy. He was wearing a plastic crown of thorns, so dude I will always think of you as Thrash Jesus now.

    My roommates were Sam from Canada (friends with some volunteer workers), Pam from Colombia (friends with Masacre, who I sadly missed), and Aziza from Uzbekistan. All really sweet girls. I also met a friend of Sam's and Aziza's boyfriend. Aziza and her boyfriend booked before meeting each other and going out, but switching rooms had a big fee they didn't want to pay. I also met a guy from Thy Antichrist and was introduced to two guys from Masacre, and on the first night I had a conversation with some Germans that Pam met. Pam is 100% the opposite of me, she was striking up conversations with every band guy she ran into. *lmao*

    It was awesome meeting you guys. That room was massive!!!

    I met tons of you guys at the parties, shows and ship \m/ thanks for everything! I deep down did have a very good trip despite some rotten things that happened to me. What are you gonna do except keep your head up? Just wanted to mention that to anyone who saw me bawling over my camera at one point... everything ended well and my faith in humanity has been near-restored :mrgreen:

    I met Memnoch, Alex Canada, Acidbasement, and Pellaz. Some guy stopped me on my way to my room and asked if I was Razor Ramon, no idea who he was though. Pretty sure that was it. I seen Cowboy from up on the balcony and in the hot tub next to the pool deck but never got to meet him. I met Andy too, I was nice, just told him a few bands I want to see, of course I forgot to mention Draconian though, my number 1...idiot.

    I got to meet lots of new and super interesting people. As for forumites, I met less of you that I'd like to. I just got to know Stained Class - also we made the same excursion in Jamaica - and Mr. Kito, and yeah, both of them really nice guys.

    Oh, and one of the greatest people I got to know in the boat was the bassist of Threshold.

    We arrived in Miami in the same flight from London - all the guys from Threshold, Trollfest and Venom were in that plane, and my friends and I were sitting between the first two. I got to talk to some members from Threshold - especially one of the guitar players and the aforementioned bassist -, one of my favourite bands, during the flight and also in the airport in Miami.

    Steve - the bassist - did the same excursion as my friends and I in Jamaica and he was such an amazing guy. He kept my phone (I got inside the Dunn's River falls and it could get wet) and he used his own one to take pictures from my friends and I, and sent them to us afterwards. Such a friendly, down-to-earth guy who made me appreciate even more the band.

    Met a lot of people, lots of old friends and lots of new people. Seems a lot of people recognized me from these here broads or from the facebook group. At least ten people made a heart sign with their hands every time they saw me. :lol:

    And yes, I was proudly wearing a Delain shirt at the beach party and on the day of broading the cruise. Got quite a few comments for that too.


    Funniest moment was when I was chatting with Kai from Wintersun and some people came to ask if I was Ville - twice during that conversation. Who's the rock star here? :lol:

    Which flight were you on? I flew from London too, but don't know if any bands or cruisers were on the same flight. I only met the singer, and what a lovely guy he was too, goes out of his way to meet everyone. I'd never heard Threshold before, but saw their second set as recommended by a friend, and I loved it, great show, performed from the heart.

    It appears it was a conversation between only you and Kai, so I'm guessing there were no rock stars present?

    I should look into what you said before responding, since it made me feel old... but... I hadn't thought about it from that perspective, but I do have some dedicated real estate I haven't been using that I could donate.

    Let me look into it.

    Apparently I met lots of people on the first 2 days while drunk because I had many people come up to me and ask me things which would have only been brought up in conversations which I didn't remember having. So I'm sorry if I looked a little startled if you spoke to me on day 3 or 4.

    Probably the best one was a guy was like "James! I need to have a photo with you man, you're great". his poor partner was trying to get his drunk arse to bed but obliged with the photo, we shared a beer, smiled for the camera and he was off. Still have no idea who he was or when I met him.

    And I was definitely one of the people always making hearts at Ville

    Hey, it was good to meet ya. Great second set from Therion, too.

    I also met Phoenix from the Forum and a couple of folks briefly at the basketball court meet'n'mingle...then I had to hie off to see Equilibrium. Really wish I could have stayed a bit longer.

    Also met Monica and Daniel from Brazil (I think Monica just joined the Forum), my most-excellent dinner companions one night and again for Therion later.

    BUT I talked to so many amazing, cool people from all over the world...it was fucking awesome. It's one of the many reasons 70K will be a blind-buy for me next year despite all of my misgivings about the festival's logistics and handling.

    I met a lot of people, Krys, Memnoch, probably some of you that I don't know the name or not remember. I had a lot of great time, at the Beach Party and on the ship too :bangers:

    I also met every day some guys of Korpiklaani, mostly at the Promenade Cafe and the Trollfest drummer just before their show at the Studio B, very nice guy :D

    For a great many reasons, rather than voice chat, like Mumble, I was speaking more about a mostly text environment that would accommodate many people, while allowing them to also create private rooms for side conversations.

    We did used to do some skype sessions a couple of years ago.
