    QUESTION 1:
    WHO HAS ACTUALLY BOOKED FLIGHTS ALREADY?
    Not applicable for me, since we'll probably drive down to Fla. from Atlanta.
    .
    .
    QUESTION 2:
    WILL YOU STILL GO TO FLORIDA IF THIS IS CANCELLED?
    Maybe yes, to Universal Studios Florida.
    .
    .
    QUESTION 3:
    IF NO, DO WE ALL GET TOGETHER ON A MIAMI BEACH ANYWAY ON THE 6th JANUARY?
    Hey, maybe!
    Speaking of Atlanta, I'll be there this NYE.
    Hope there'll be a show on in town that night.
    Like at the Variety Playhouse, so I can walk to and from the venue! haha

    There will probably be several shows and lots of parties, but alas, probably not too much in the way of live metal shows with national touring acts. The Christmas and New Years holidays are usually pretty "dead" for touring acts.

    Another possible reason why they might be having difficulty getting bands for 2020? No one wants to try and schedule a tour immediately before/after due to close proximity to xmas/new years?

    Repeating myself but IMHO, the main reason for the lack of announcements cannot be lack of bands. I am quite sure he has at least 10-15 under his sleeves that he could announce one by one to pass this period whilst trying to convince the remaining bands for the lineup. Dunno doesn't make sense to me.

    No announcements is one thing but no updated logo for 2020 and no 2020 megathread in the forum is mind boggling. Hell, almost all communication has stopped. There is no reason for any of this unless there are problems. This delay makes no business sense, he is losing customers old and new and has to be costing him money. It makes absolutely no cents...or sense!

    No logo makes me think Andy does not even want to spend any more money until whatever issue has been solved

    I'm thinking of something, let's say, pretty different.

    Has anyone thought of the Skipper having some sort of serious issue with his life? I'm basically thinking of a burnout that has been - and still is - keeping him away from work. We know he is the mastermind behind this and the one moving most of the strings, and I can't even start to imagine the load of work, stress, pressure and responsibility that comes with this. So maybe at some point this has been too much and he's basically forced to stay away from work for (mental) health reasons?

    Just trying to make some sense out of this.

    Or maybe he is just the procrastinating kind of guy. Who knows. I'm seriously not ruling this one out either.

    While it's possible that Andy might be having some personal problems, it's pretty inconceivable that a multi-million dollar operation like 70K wouldn't have some sort of emergency backup mechanism in place.
    Andy IS the public face of 70K and UMC, but unless he is independently and VERY wealthy, there MUST be others behind the scenes who also control the purse-strings, and I can't believe they wouldn't have some sort of failsafe in place to avoid default. Even if it amounted to "Due to unforeseen circumstances we'll be taking a year off; see you in 2021."

    Agree!
    Highly unlikely that this operations would grind to a halt due to illness of one person. Pretty sure Andy is VERY important, but there would still be investors and staff that will keep this thing running or at least end it in a reasonable matter.

    Also I cannot find ANY good reason for waiting this long. None at all. There are bands booked, the ship is chartered, so we could get this show going.

    Hey if booking bands would be a problem Andy could just open up the spots to small unknown bands who would swarm like flies on a fresh piece of sh*t to get this kind of exposure. There are literally 100s of bands that would give their arms or legs to play on the 70k, the brand is still that good. And yeah I know some of them personally so I can say, all bands with no chance of being on the "normal" line up.

    Logistical problems with material necessary for the boat? Stage building material, or even beer, etc.? Highly unlikely as all of this has basically been the same for some years now and is not that difficult to find replacement if necessary.

    IT problems? Lost survivor's mail addresses and UMC never did a backup of the database? Or the booking systems has been renewed and the project is way behind schedule!? Unlikely if not impossible. Yet still no reason not to start announcing bands. Let the IT fix their problems in the mean time. Cruisers are happy they can discuss the first bands, all good.

    Security and other staff onboard? They are under a multiple year contract and that has all been fixed ahead of last year's cruise, so no problem there.

    I would really like to know what possible good reason could there be?

    I just cannot brain anymore how this is gonna work. IF this is gonna work.

    We've been told there will be priority booking for Gold and Silver.

    We've been told there will be a payment plan.

    We're all assuming (hoping) that 10th of the 10th is the big day. But big day for what??? Given how late it is now, we'll be under 90 days to go by then.

    You'd almost hope it will be a drop of 30 bands, and news that Golds will open the following day, silvers one or two days after that, the public one or two days after that.

    So how will the payment plan work then? Will it be 4 payments over 2 months? will it be 4 over 3 months, allowing the final payment to be made AFTER the cruise?

    None of this makes an iota of sense :(

    Probably going to bail. The announcement thing isn’t a big deal for me but I seem to have dollared myself into being broke. I would have been fine booking a couple of months ago but I wasn’t disciplined enough to stay in the black.

    Another one bites the dust :cry:

    Flight prices still haven't dropped like I hoped they would so I'll definitely bail if nothing after the 10th.

    Would have leapt to book like you a few months ago thinking "all good, flight prices will drop later in the year".

    But now we are into October and it will still cost $2500+ each return to Florida, yeah too much.

    Probably going to bail. The announcement thing isn’t a big deal for me but I seem to have dollared myself into being broke. I would have been fine booking a couple of months ago but I wasn’t disciplined enough to stay in the black.
    Another one bites the dust :cry:

    Flight prices still haven't dropped like I hoped they would so I'll definitely bail if nothing after the 10th.

    Would have leapt to book like you a few months ago thinking "all good, flight prices will drop later in the year".

    But now we are into October and it will still cost $2500+ each return to Florida, yeah too much.

    Very sads to hear that.
    Hope that October 10th turns it all around for you. For everyone. New and golds.

    I booked my airfare back in May this year.
    For under $2,000 AU return to Atlanta. Making my way down to FL after the new year etc.
    I would have bailed out by now had I not bought airfares back then.
    So I am one step ahead I guess in that regard, but....me too, I have ZERO idea how this is all gonna work.
    Less than 90 days to go on Oct 10th and I can't figure it out at all.

    But then you had that link to that German website/comp thing. So the plot thickens.

    I am sorta stuck with doing stuff over there in the US anyway, but if I hadn't, I'd be all over that Full Metal Cruise by now, 2020.

    Anyway, back to this cluster fukk, I just can't imagine this boat happening at all from October 11 onwards unlesss we get something on/before that.

    Note that I didn't say 10th OF a given month :P

    For that matter, I may not even be referring to a date. I could mean, "if nothing after the 10th revolution of the earth around the sun"

    I'm thinking of something, let's say, pretty different.

    Has anyone thought of the Skipper having some sort of serious issue with his life?
    Told ya.
