    How many sets/bands

    by IcedInferno » Mon Feb 01, 2016 9:26 am

    To all you veterans out there, how many sets do you usually attend and how many bands to you usually see?

    I came up with my list and I'm at 46 sets and 44 bands. Is that way too much or somewhat possible?

    That might be doable, but it is very, very aggressive, and you probably won't be able to see all of each set that you want. I saw all or part of 34 total performances, not including the All Star Jam. Depending on what you focus your time on, that is probably about average. I like to explore the ship, gamble, hang out with friends from previous cruises, eat regularly, spend a little time in the pool/hot tubs (I also sprained my ankle last year, so I missed like 4 shows while I got it x-rayed).

    I guess that my advice is to not get bummed out if you miss a show or two. Try to see each band at least once. Some of the bands play the same exact set twice, so keep that in mind.

    Yea, seeing all the bands you want is challenging. Once the schedule comes out, just plan the best your can. Try and find times where there are bands you can skip so you can do things like eat and sleep, and keep in mind the goal is to have fun! Seeing 46 sets of 44 bands is possible...but only if your super hard core about it.

    Yeah good luck !!

    I've been on all 70k cruises, and I think the most FULL sets I've managed to catch is about 30. I'm old and lack endurance though :P hahaha

    I usually end up in the 30s for at least partial sets (3+ songs). I remember trying to catch at least one song from every band on barge to hell. Don't do that :lol:
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Thanks guys, I wont be disappointed (unless Iced Earth cancels) other than that, no chance. Even if I only see 30-35 bands which seems like the average, I will cut down on the fat and try to see my top 30ish.

    Do the bands start on the first day by the way? I know the ship sails at 5. I was wondering if they begin immediately or around what time they start if they do start on the first day! :death:

    Yup, they start about 15 min or so after the boat leaves.
