    By this date in previous years:

    2011 cruise - we knew 19 bands
    2012 - knew 14 bands
    2013 - knew 11 bands
    2014 - knew 14 bands
    2015 - knew 21 bands
    2016 - knew 13 bands

    It's somewhat strange really. Based on my first experience on the cruise (2016), things appear to run very smoothly (schedules are maintained, sound is good, etc.). Honestly, given how disorganized everything appears leading up to the cruise, you would almost expect the cruise itself to be chaos.

    It's a far cry from what we're used to in the ATL, that's for sure.

    Very true. And while I appreciate that Andy works on a much larger scale and doesn't have the same years of experience running his festival as Glenn does PP, it still feels a bit strange the way information is disseminated.

    Facebook today reminded me that it's been exactly a year now since I bought my last 70k ticket. No bands yet, even. I'm still okay with this. I've had so many moving expenses, if the ball starts rolling in late July or early August, I'll be cool.

    Okay the 7 reasons or what would get me on again
    1)From a personal perspective ,I can plan to go without worrying about cancelling now
    2)Last time was 2014 on the Majesty ,so the new big boat would be cool.I do not like cruises honestly and the music /metal people is all that I really enjoy .The bigger boat would be nice to try.I never go on it without music ,ever.
    3)Something like Radio Fenriz on the Water would be cool,Darkthrone will never play anything like this but Fenriz as DJ.Now that would be cool ,even some of his Yacht Rock
    4)Last year's line up with some of the big names from 2015.Something like the line-up in 2016,after a few big bands in 2015 I was glad I didn't go.
    5)I really like the port of call this year ,something different I know you at trapped into the Island but this would be totally different.Jamaica (the poverty hell-hole ) was of no interest.
    6)I can afford this now,I mean a balcony and doing something after instead of having to fly home right after .
    7)A few Black Metal Bands -Dark Funeral ,Satyricon (with Frost) and Myrkur (just to piss people off and I really like her music,just listen and stop being a hater)

    2015-16 Abandoned Ship

    2018 Got a bad feeling about this Abandon Ship
    2019 This is Fucking Ridiculous
    2020 Bands ,what bands boat is all that matters

    And the longer we go without announcements, the more bands make themselves unavailable.

    7 of the top 28 ruled out - Alestorm and Nightwish only ruled out by hearsay it should be said, but the rest are all confirmed ruled out due to touring commitments (or breaking up in Agalloch's case)

    2 - Sabaton (touring with Accept)
    3 - Alestorm (told a cruiser not 2017, maybe 2018)
    4 - Nightwish (told a cruiser not 2017, maybe 2018)
    7 - Kreator (touring Europe)
    13 - Devin Townsend (touring with Leprous and Between the buried and me)
    21 - Powerwolf (gig in France with Epica on 4th February 2017)
    27 - Agalloch (breaking up)

    That is assuming that no announcements means no activity behind the scenes, which usually does not seem to be the case. I doubt if any of the above bands would have been included even if the announcements were back in March. I am thinking they probably have the first 25-30 bands pretty well in the bag, they are just making us wait... because that's what they do!

    7/7 would be very logical and most of Andy's posts have been pointing to a future post since he started the games last year.Now one thing that did happen was Brexit ,and he couldn't control that.It makes almost every band coming to play a bit more expensive for their Miami stay,but flights will be cheaper and they will get a slightly bigger payday.So that might have changed his plans ,Brexit really had a immediately noticed effect on a enterprise like this.

    My guess is that they can't officially book anyone until they're done setting up all the legal stuff around their tax shelter corporation in the Bahamas. I don't think there's any logic to this game - they're probably waiting even more impatiently than we are. Just because they didn't want to pay Canadian taxes or (possibly) be subject to Canadian laws.

    Unless Andy's bank account is in pounds, I'm not sure how Brexit would impact this. For starters, I have have to assume (or would at least like to think) the headliners have been locked and loaded for months. I say this because most nationally touring acts work on a 12 - 18 month planning horizon. Second, the only immediate impact of Brexit is currency values. However, as the amounts set forth in the contracts are highly unlikely to be renegotiable based on currency fluctuations, any contracts signed prior to Brexit would still be valid. Further, it's typical that only a deposit is paid when the contract is signed. No one knows what the dollar, pound or euro might be worth come February when the balances come due. More than likely 7 for 7 was never a clue.

    Yeah I don't think Brexit has an impact. If anything, Andy's happy about it, because the Canadian dollar went down a titch and a lot of the stuff goes through American currencies.

    I also (could be wrong) don't think today's the day. It's been true in the past that any time the 70k Facebook page posts a random social media post, they do not announce anything cruise info related. They made their social media post this morning.

    Brexit has an impact on 70k customers so yeah it has an impact plus as stated above the whole company was shifting to the Bahamas.My guess is the Swiss Franc (which got hammered hard also) is the currency along with USD that most affects day to day finances.But it is the customers ,hotel stays and the trip itself got more expensive for many.The profit margin on this cruise is problably very slim.So going back to Royal Carribean to lower prices could be an option.You know this is a cruise? Lol Royal Caribbean went from 77.13 a share on 23 June to 65.95 on 27 June.So that is what I call an immediate and devasting change to your business .

    From a longer term viewpoint, Brexit wouldn't have had too much of an impact on us Aussie cruisers so far.

    Immediately after the Brexit vote, the Australian Dollar dropped about 3 cents against the $US which is pretty significant in terms of sudden currency movements.

    BUT, the Aussie Dollar had been on a steady upward climb - prior to Brexit it had risen to $US0.76 from 70 cents at the start of the year.

    And now its started climbing again and is hovering around $US0.75

    <Looking at my watch>
    Well, there's still a little time before 7 pm Vancouver time......

    Ahh, who am I kidding? It won't be today.


    Meanwhile out in the real world, my compadre from last Feb. isn't interested in returning in 2017, in part because of all the booking/announcing silliness.
    I have two other friends who ARE interested in coming, but it's all going to come down to timing and that all-important initial slate of bands announced. I guess we'll see......
