And the sad fact is that, in previous years, only the band-booking and announcement process has been chaotic. Aside from the website crashing last year with Gold bookings, the room-booking process, the production, the logistics, the staging...ALL of that has been well handled.*
I do however think that 70k's communication strategy really should change and have posted so on Facebook as well.
So say we all!

Because for Americans the logistics of getting to 70K are far less complicated than for the rest of us :(
I think you're right, and I hate that. One of the things that's been magical about this cruise is the way it brings metalheads together from all over the world. Politics, religion, international relations -- even our different tastes in metal genres -- all take a faraway back seat to everyone's love of metal. I would hate to see that cool onbroad atmosphere decline...and sadly, it looks like it might in 2019...assuming there IS a 70K in 2019.
* aside from starting to build the pool-deck stage facing the wrong way in 2014, anyway.
