    Hmm, I really don't think so. It seems their strategy for social media communication is more to give no information but the very basic facts. I think you can take it as a given, at least this year. You might be right though with the "thinning the herd" strategy of letting everyone wait as long as possible. :|

    I mean, it's working! So much has happened in my life lately that I need a vacation, now, and if 70k doesn't hurry up I'm going to spend that money on a spa week.

    So at least for now there will not be any change to the Gold/Silver booking system.


    Or at least, not as far as their social media people have been told about.


    Any particular reason you think the social media team is being kept out of the loop on what's happening? I see people in the 70k Facebook group referencing you to reinforce their "it might be canceled" opinions because of these statements, but I see no indication of them being true. I assume they (as I'm sure the team is small) know quite a bit and are simply not permitted to say anything...

    Their social media team can get bent, quite frankly.

    I didn't see it myself but apparently somewhere on one of the recent posts, when people complained that prices of flights are getting more expensive the longer we wait, they replied that they should just book their flights and worry about announcements later.

    WUT.

    There is so much wrong with that I don't know where to start!!!

    How about:

    a) With the speed cabins have been selling the last year or two, there is no guarantee even veterans will get a cabin!

    b) Most of us have to save and save to afford this cruise, so tend to have to book the cheapest (NON REFUNDABLE) flights. So if we don't get a cabin (or 70K doesn't happen) we are screwed.

    c) What if the lineup sucks? Sure blah-blah you'll-have-fun-no-matter-the-lineup blah-blah. To some of us the lineup IS important.

    Sheer arrogance on their behalf if you ask me.

    Any particular reason you think the social media team should know everything that's going on 'behind the scenes'? This is just like any other company, not everyone - actually nearly noone - knows what the ones in charge are up to.

    Don't worry... The wait for 2020cruise will be even worse as 2019cruise (this one) will be sold-out even faster.
    Their strategy is clear : the less info we give+the more we don't listen to customers requests = the fastest we sell. This has worked for them SO GOOD the previous years (except the barge), they have NO REASON to change.

    Travis Ryan posted this on his FB wall:

    "...sitting on a ton of killer Cattle Decapitation news for the last few months. Shit's killin' me! SOON..."

    Could be a hint maybe?

    Agreed. On all of this. If his strategy is to piss off his loyal customer base to the point where enough of them quit to let new blood in, that's shitty for everyone involved except MAYBE UMC.

    I'm not sure newbies will sign up in droves to give thousands of dollars to UMC when they see this clusterfuck.
    There are 150,000 people seeing the comments and angry "likes" on FB and "is it still happening?" questions. That's bad PR.

    Well I'm a newbie so I can give you just a little bit of insight. All things considered it does not good.

    I've spoken to gold status survivors during concerts so I know that it is always a bit of a more relaxed organization (some evil persons might call it chaotic). I'm pretty cool with that. I do however think that 70k's communication strategy really should change and have posted so on Facebook as well.

    I'd say newbies might just react very similar to survivors. Some will change their minds, make other plans and will no longer try to get a ticket. Others wait patiently and hope for the best.

    I think the best PR 70k has is hear-say. Reading you guys' posts and feeling the enthusiasm is more than enough for me to keep waiting patiently for my slim changes during public sales.

    Also, remember that Gold survivors get a 10% discount (15% if paid in full), and silver 5% (10% if paid in full), so the less there are of those, the better for UMC. The problem is that each year, there are more of those...

    70K has always done two things really well.

    1. Deliver an incredible experience onboard.

    2. Make people FUCKING RAGE about the lack of communication in the lead-up.

    Last year it seemed that things were better in terms of communication. But let's remember that last year was not the norm.

    The cruise is going to happen, and it's going to be awesome. I might not be on it, but I have no doubt that everyone onbroad will have a great time.

    But yeah, it's really weird that there's no initial lineup.

    In my mind it could be one of a few things, but most likely to me is this: last year they were blindsided by their own success. After the cruise sold out instantly, lead passengers could not sell their tickets to their friends if they ended up not being able to go, and several people were out the entire cost of their cruise because of this - they had to return their tickets to 70K with no refund, instead of being able to pay a transfer fee like in previous years. This seems like a ridiculous system that might be tough for 70K to get around, given Royal Caribbean's probable legal constraints and UMC maybe not caring enough about it. The 70K folks might be trying to get a better system for us, that respects their clientele, but are running into the difficulty in getting teams of lawyers to work together in timely fashion.

    Regardless of the reason behind this silence, I can guarantee you, that for every day this drags on, I reckon the percentage of Americans on 70K next year increases, and the percentage of those from anywhere else on the globe decreases.

    Because for Americans the logistics of getting to 70K are far less complicated than for the rest of us :(

    Not only for us cruisers but for the artists as well! We've all seen the difficulties that touring bands face getting into the USA. And yes I KNOW that to perform on 70K they don't need US visas, but I'm sure for a lot of the acts being able to do some dates in the US after 70k helps them a lot with their finances.

    I predict a completely normal lineup (e.g. DIMMU BORGIR, IN FLAMES and GOJIRA as headliners), a normal booking process, no surprises whatsoever, and that we’ll never know why there was such a delay.
    One surprise, actually: the hints for the band announcements will be numbers this time :lol:

    We will get a lame-ass half-hearted half-joke by way of an "apology" though :P :roll:

    2014 cruise. No bands, barely any updates, for almost 6 months. When the silence broke what did we get?

    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! :D

    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. :shock:

    I thought this too - by writing this (and also tagging 70k), have they sealed their fate? Or will this kickstart the entire process? Time will tell (I'm not saying the S word).

    While I'd love to have AR on ("Tarot" was a fucking brilliant album), that sounds more like they're just following the drama like the rest of us and are making a joke about how everyone is speculating that announcements are being held up for Slayer/Priest/etc.

    I.E. "We're so huge, 70K is just waiting for us! Har har har."

    I can't imagine actually taking it as any sort of serious announcement.

    Actually no, that is not the "A" I was told. As much as I think that would be a nice announcent - never watched them live before - that message sounds more like wishful thinking to me than they actually having been offered.

    I just don't see a band doing this unless they've at least already talked to 70k about performing (which AR could have done in the past).

    That being said, since we know what Andy does with bands that are announced early in almost any way (except for like, Carcass), this could be pretty damning.

    I wouldn't read too much into the Aether Realm post. It's not the first time they've shit posted about being on 70k. A couple years back they posted a photo-shopped 70K announcement on their Facebook page. But when you zoomed in on the border it was little poo emojis. I should try to find that again. Think it was back in 2016.

    Yeah, if you watch their music videos you can see they have a....differently enabled...sense of humor. :lol:

    I just messaged the Facebook page for I Spit Ashes to ask them if they'd like to be on. They said they've heard of it and would love it.

    I told them to email and ask, since that's how Allegeon got on. They said they'd give it a try.

    So if that happens I'll scream.

    Gary Hughes from the UK band TEN just liked the 70K page.

    "Reasons I cannot yet disclose?" Not possibly because they're touring North America in less than a month?

    We're five months out, there's no way they're rehearsing NOW for the boat.
