It is strange though , when I saw that Gojira wa on the bill, thought it was somewhat unrealistic. They just seem to be a bit too commercially successful presently for the cruise. Totally understand familial illness. Nile on the other hand , a bit of bullshit just my Opinion sorry. I think they could play a gig without the bassist frankly ... just adjust the soundboard a bit and nine out of 10 people there wouldn't even know the difference sonically.
Gojira does have a lot of hype around them right now, no doubt. It isn't like they haven't had big bands before... Anthrax has had plenty of fame in their day... Nightwish has also played and they do arena tours.
The cruise is a blast, regardless of the lineup. A truly unique and awesome experience that I look forward to all year long. Honestly, i think it is misguided for anyone to book an expensive cruise specifically for one or two bands, but that is just me. Hopefully you like some other bands or have grown to like some since you booked. I encourage you to go with an open mind, have fun, check out some bands you weren't previously familiar with. They can often surprise you.
