    We got 10 bands in one hit, then Turisas the next day, then booking codes the day after that. Over the next few weeks we got 4 more bands before Andy did one of his "I'm not telling you shit" periods of total silence from end July to end September.

    Looks like this year he won't do a silence from july to september, because we wont even have the booking code nor the firsts couples of bands.

    its not just us the fans complaining .. i have talked to more than a few bands that have either experienced it 1st hand or heard from others that 70k is very unorganized and under pays the bands compared to other cruises and festivals. Maybe the increased room charges will allow them to pay better and attract some "bigger" bands and/or get some others to return. i will say that there is virtually no chance of Iced Earth or Kamelot every dealing with UMC again and there are many others....on the other hand...GloryHammer is all but a lock for next year !! :)

    Edit : Thats a big surprise announcing Iced Earth ... i have seen them 7 times since they were on the cruise and every time they have said it was a one time thing and they lost money doing it. +1 to UMC for making this happen !!

    Or just the fact that we're about to get bands and finally be able to throw money at them again!

    They've already announced dates and the Super Bowl stuff, so slim to nil chance of your 2/3 happening. 4 could happen if they're working with Don and just counting the pre-cruise show he puts on as part of the "official" events.

    The post is actually referring to the YouTube channel and there is more but no mention of booking,bands or the dreaded "soon " word.Actually too late for them to beat MORC,public booking starts Wednesday ,but booking already started for vets.

    Personally, I don't think 2, 3 or 5 make any sense at all. Despite all the douchebaggery and disastrous management, I still don't have any reasons to believe there won't be 70k 2016.

    I agree. This shit will go on. I hope the new plans work out.
    I would book completely blind today if I could.

    After this long of a wait ,some change in the business structure would be the only good excuse .The 2013 sailing had delayed booking mostly due to the BTH overlap so that year was an outlier.One thing that would be a good reason would be a better booking system also.Other cruises let you actually pick what category you want , while 70k is just a booking request.Looking at the website it doesn't appear that that has changed unfortunately .The bad thing about waiting is Hotels are starting to book up and the prices are inching up also.I imagine some of the cruisers have already booked rooms,most people wait until they have booked the cruise.Almost all the 70k announcements this year have been geared to keep interest up without any progress towards bands or booking.A couple of weeks of Metal Mondays and then a destination will drag this out even farther.I wonder if their is some German long word for this ,like Germans often have.Dickinwifdefuckinncrruisers or something. :lol:

    Twitter activity suggests that bands should be announced tomorrow and booking Friday,if they repeat last year's pattern.I do dislike the ambush style of booking ,a few days warning would be more professional ,but it seems they are happy with the results from last year.

    Dark Tranquillity,Sonata Arctica ,Symphony X and Overkill my guesses however only 3 bands above "I" means I expect only one of these 4 are correct guesses.

    Yeah, about that :lol:

    Iced Earth was one of my favorites from the first cruise. Never had the chance to see them with Stu yet. Then again, I still don't know if I'm going on the next cruise. Good start to the artist listing though.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Yeah, about that :lol:

    Iced Earth was one of my favorites from the first cruise. Never had the chance to see them with Stu yet. Then again, I still don't know if I'm going on the next cruise. Good start to the artist listing though.

    WHAT?

    Yeah what he said!!! :D

    As to the bands?

    Hmmm Maybe Amaranthe, Edguy, Gloryhammer, Hammerfall to the left of Iced Earth.

    Hoping Within Temptation will be to the right!

    Also, about their "game".

    Does this mean they are not actually going to make any further announcements for the first 10 bands?

    And we just have to refresh the artists page?

    If so - that's kinda cool :)

    Great first band. Iced Earth live has gotten a breath of fresh air since Stu joined. We've seen them 3-4 times with Stu and they never disappoint. I havent been a big fan with any of their albums with him but they are soo much better live.

    The last annouement that I consider a winner was Lake of Tears last year,Iced Earth means that hasn't changed.Repeat and crowd favorite but with only 10 bands rounded up it is like opening up the biggest Christmas present first and being disappointed :|

    Doesn't impact my wishlist much (rules out Kalidia), but given that Lacuna has cropped up right next to Iced Earth on the lineup, that rules out (just in this initial crop of 10 bands) any bands whose names start with J or K.
