Phoenix wrote:60 bands is fine, as long as they're in decent variety. I think that no matter what the move to another boat is, more cruisers, same amount of bands, same amount of days or one more if we absolutely have to.
The only times why I'd want or accept a lower number of bands would be.....
-- if logistics required it: time-slot issues, operational considerations, etc. This would include weather contingency planning
-- if having a drop-dead amazing, but "complicated" band booking required it: Ayreon, Avantasia, Emperor+Ihsahn, Green Carnation, etc., and they might require two slots' worth of time (or money )
