But i seriously don't think now that a lot of europeans will want to pay the price for the cruise + the flights to America for what is considered a boring and bland lineup in Europe considering they can pay a lot less to see most at a festival for about 60-100 euro in Europe.
They really need to put a few rarer bands or just big bands who don't play so often on if they want to ensure a lot more european customers.
The cruise will probably sell out either way considering the fact that a lot of these band performances don't happen anywhere near as often for people in the states.

I'm really hoping that they book some American bands that don't play in Europe much or ever.It's one of the reasons i booked the cruise in the first place because there are a lot of great Heavy metal bands from America.Unforutunaly they aren't as big as Testament and co.

Can't remember most of the bands at the moment.But yeah there's a fuck load of great American Heavy metal bands from the 80's too.
Need some black metal and some more power metal.

Yeah these guys are my buddies from here in Calgary. They likely won't be doing anything for a long while.
Combination of writer's block, side projects, and member disputes has kind of put them on the shelf.
