    Only been on the last cruise and while it was awesome I'm already tired of being jerked around. With all these other cruises going on this is going to hurt them in the long run. I know a couple people that already booked other cruises. We almost booked on the Motorhead cruise, but I don't like their no refund policy and we've seen the bands 100 times each. We may still do that one if there are cabins available towards the sail date. Most people can only afford one cruise if any at all and postponing announcements and booking is not smart for UMC.

    With the prices going up and lack of details I'm unsure if we will be going next year on 70,000. This cruise would cost less than $1000 for two of us to go on any other time. We spent around $4000 last year. That's just an insane amount for a 4 day cruise, even as awesome as it is. I don't know how all the people from overseas can manage to go.

    That all said, if the first announcements are to our liking we may still book. Who knows. I think UMC is shooting themselves in the foot and they will not last conducting business like this. Eventually they will lose significant amounts of customers.

    Rant over. :bitch: :bmhorns: :beerbang: :cool:

    I am in the same boat as you! It's going to take some really good band announcements for me to consider going next year. This year was my first year to go and I had a blast but there are so many other things that are competing for my dollars and the ho hum attitude we get from UMC is really turning me off. What really bothered me this year was getting band announcements all the way up to the day before we sailed and the fiasco with the pool deck stage. I just don't get the feeling that UMC respects their audience.

    USD 4,000??? Wow... I spent $999 (cruise) + $500 (Amsterdam-FLL-Amsterdam) ticket + $150 (drinks + souvenirs) = $ 1,649.00.

    A Large Ocean view is listed as 175 square feet and a double costs $1466 p.p. Vs. a Deluxe Balcony D3 with 184 square feet and a 66 square foot balcony for a price of $1366.I guess the pricing is done that way so only triples , quads and people who suck at math book the Large Ocean view.

    I am sure I'll NOT book blindly but only if there are interesting (for me) bands announced.

    That's for me and my wife. We actually spent more if you include the night we stayed at the hard rock before the cruise. That was our choice so I'm not including that.

    Being first timers last year most of the lower priced rooms were gone before we could book. We also don't want room mates. So the cruise was $3400 for a balcony room with all the fees. We spent around $600 on booze, merch and maybe $100 gambling. We didn't do any excursions. If I include gas, parking, etc. for the whole trip it was probably close to $4500 and we live in Florida! We can jump on 3-4 day cruises here for less than $500 for both of us all the time. This thing is extremely expensive. That's the main reason we haven't gone on earlier 70000tons sailings. I just couldn't justify the cost, but we pulled the trigger last year. I'm glad we did and had a great time, I just don't know with the way things are going if we will book again or not. Even with a cheaper room it's still going to be over $3000 to go for both of us.

    For the wife and I, each year its about $8k Australian.

    $3k for the cruise, $3-4k for flights from Brisbane, and about another grand for all other incidentals (accom in FL, taxis, food, alcohol, presents, etc).

    And you guys basically fly in and out and aren't exactly alcoholics!

    It ain't cheap anymore considering the changes in the dollar since the earlier cruises.

    This cruise is expensive for almost everyone now,a person living in Flordia who can drive and doesn't mind staying in a quad can do it cheap.Currency changes have wiped out the non-USA cruiser discount ,their seems to be a core group of cruisers who have unlimited funds and see many shows around the World.Most people get a couple of vacations a year and have to make a choice.Next year will probably have the most new cruisers since the first year.A lot of people came back with the bigger ship and headliners who where on previous cruises.Looks like the assumed set of returned bands (Sabaton ,Nightwish,and others) are out so many veterans are going to be wait and see.That makes it harder for them to book if all the cheap cabins are gone once line up suits them.

    Heh, I was just about to post something about that. I wasn't expecting a cruise-to-nowhere either, but those are now officially off the table for all U.S.-origin cruises and lines. (They were rare anyway.)

    If they continue to drag this out long enough that there isn't time to make 4 payments by October, I'm not going to be able to go. It's not me being spoiled and demanding answers, it's the face that it's almost to the latest possible time where you have to start making payments and we're not able to.

    Like seriously, I'm totally going to go but if I don't get promo codes soon, I literally cannot afford to go...

    I don't think i'm gonna be in 70k 2016 no matter what (other problems), but i feel bad for who's looking forward to it.

    After the storys I told about this years cruise some of my friends really wanted to come along next year, but it's starting to get really hard to keep them excited in any way.
    By now I'm not sure if any of them are still interested in booking at all...

    No announcement yet, but I'm quite sure that with the destination and the promocodes we will get a massive bands announcement and, hopefully, less silence between announcements at the end of the year or in January :roll:

    On a positive note for non-USD payers ,dollar weakening is making the cruise cheaper.There was some weakening in mid-May but then a rebound.If it where not for the problem in Greece ,I would say the dollar should continue to weaken the next 6-9 months.This would help installment payers and those who are waiting for line-up.Last year cheap female ($666) and not too bad male ($999) singles where available for purchase really close to sail date.

    The USD - EUR rate has remained very stable for the past few weeks. At this point buying one USD costs 0.88€. I'd be more than happy to book at this rate. It's much more expensive than last year, but some predictions pointed out that we might reach parity (1 USD = 1 €) during this year so I'm ok with this rate.

    Canadian dollar just gained 2 cents on the USD in the last couple of days. Bring forth the booking codes!

    Same here... Anyways I'm gonna book a quad cabin and then I'll see which of my friends are willing to go, if none of them are coming I'll offer the available spaces I have in the forum. I'm not missing the boat just 'cause of my friends, and going solo means paying $100 extra bucks !

    I'm in the same boat, if you'll pardon the pun. I've been touting this cruise to friends AND also during our radio show ever since last year, and I was really getting them excited 2-3 months ago. My friends who were interested are losing interest ("Is it really a good idea to commit that much money into a cruise that doesn't seem well organized?"), and who can blame them? They're tired of me telling them "hey, I think we'll be getting some news soon" every couple of weeks since effin' March. :evil:

    Yep, and it's not as if we're losing out too much - only 5% -- by not paying it all up front. I can afford to cover the first installment payment on a double or triple even if I don't have other friends joining in right away. I'd lose that 5%, but...who cares? It only applies to the cruise fare anyway, not to the taxes and junk fees.

    HAHAHAHAHA - you would like to think that, wouldn't you?

    But even for the 2013 cruise, when the first bands were not announced until 27th of June 2012, they STILL SOMEHOW MANAGED TO FIND A WAY, to make us wait 60 days between band announcements (from 26th July to 26th September) at one stage.

    So no, I'm not even hopeful of THAT :roll:

    No trouble,the ship is definitely booked by UMC now for Feb. 4-8th,no turning back now.Long delay in booking could just be UMC wanting time off from dealing with cruisers and having a solid set of bands to announce at start of booking.However as many people mentioned above apathy is starting to set in and I think they take a big risk as people decide on other things to do with their money.

    "Those pesky cruisers! Actually hoping for announcements so they can send us piles of their hard-earned money! The nerve!"

    and having a solid set of bands to announce at start of booking.


    It needs to be solid...and numerous. 20 bands, preferably thirty, with some drop-dead names. Otherwise....

    However as many people mentioned above apathy is starting to set in and I think they take a big risk as people decide on other things to do with their money.


    ...yeah, otherwise, that. ^^

    Another update :)

    On this date in previous years:

    2011 - we knew 18 bands
    2012 - we knew 12 bands
    2013 - we had nothing (but 26 bands had been announced for Barge To Hell)
    2014 - we knew 14 bands (and we had entered into that wonderful period of time where we ended up getting no announcements for 6 months)
    2015 - we knew 16 bands

    First announcement for the 2013 cruise was June 26 so we've still got a week until its the latest in the year that we've ever waited for the first bands to be named.

    Once bands did get announced for 2013, was it done with a band a day, or a large announcement all at once?
