    Cuba would be cool, but if the Orange Menace is still in the White House, it would probably not politically be possible.


    Lol, U.S.-based cruises are still allowed to go to Cuba, but there are some additional restrictions in place, mostly regarding excursions involving the Cuban military.
    All the "Big Three" cruise lines have cruises scheduled for Havana through 2018, although they have to use smaller, shallower-draft ships. Royal bought Empress of the Seas back from a subsidiary (Pullmantur Cruises) expressly for Havana itineraries. It's a tiny ship; smaller than our old Majesty.

    Looks like a ‘S’ band has been leaked on Facebook. The singer’s name rhymes with Elmo, and he needs to Scour his reputation.

    Cool, just as long as they play that "Wizard" song. :lol:
    If Andy is going that way I'd rather see Blue Oyster Cult, though I suspect their guarantee is sky-high.

    Just noticed that Satyricon has a break in their tour from January 28th through February 8th. They've announced that 2018 will be their last US tour. Wonder if it's possible even though they did not have the best of times last time they were onbroad.

    I find it unlikely. In their announcement they stated that they have had issues touring the US in the past (Visa perhaps?). So do not see them coming to the US for a one-off. If they were, then I would have expected them to schedule the tour accordingly. Similar as to how the announced NA tour incorporates Maryland Deathfest.

    Definitely a situation where I would be more then happy to be proven wrong though.

    I predict that once again the wild speculation about top level bands will fizz into the void.Except for Wintersun the big boat doesn’t get any great announcements the last week.

    I guess Andy needed his last minute band. ;)

    We're FINALLY getting closure on those:

    Aborted - were asked twice (Barge & 2014) but could not make it before. They keep Jan-Feb free to be able to do it.
    Leaves Eyes - seen with Andy at the Metal Hammer awards 2015
    Metal Church - leaked the news that they were on broad 2015 but the change of lead singers blew that.
    Sabaton - love the cruise.
    Septicflesh - Itching to return
    Sonata Arctica - wanted to be on 2014 but "the promoter went missing"
    Swallow The Sun - they wanted on in 2016

    Meant nothing whatsoever to me - totally not to me taste. But I could not deny that it was a pretty big announcement for a final one.

    I dunno, the Overkill/Carcass announcement last year was pretty awesome.

    I not sure if Carcass was a make-up for the un-announcement of Nile and Gojira but Overkill definitely was a last minute call.So the net effect was I lost a band I wanted to see (Gojira) But actually forgot about those 2 (didn’t see them because conflicts and seen them on the boat before).But I really referring to the top wish list bands people keep on thinking are going to be added.Seeing Amon Amarth or a never boater anymore like Satyricon being thrown around is laughable.

    Heya Cruisers!

    If I may, go back to where we think, the cruise might head to in 2019.
    I just looked at some of the Caribbean destinations here:
    https://secure.royalcaribbean.com.au/cr ... de_CO=true

    I think we can rule Cuba out. As someone posted earlier.
    I missed the cruise to Haiti.
    So, I hope we go there!
    Not Cozumel. Not Mexico again.
    Mi encanta Mexico!

    But, I guess we gotta wait a few more days yet to find out.
    Let me know what Andy says on the last night of the boat!!!!

    There's a chance we could go to CocoCay. It's Royal's private island and until now has been "off the table" because it's a tender port, and with a full boat it would take a while to get us all off and then back on again.
    BUT.....Royal is building a dock there, and it's supposed to be finished around October, so we could possibly go there in 2019.

    Another possibility: I think Amber Cove, Dominican Republic is within range, barely. It's a Carnival port, not Royal, but then again, so is Grand Turk. Amber Cove isn't quite as nice as Grand Turk as there isn't a beach within walking distance like there is at GT, but it has a HUGE free pool and water complex, inexpensive ziplines (about $20 for an all-day pass), and there are a lot of excursions you can take.

    If Amber Cove has no nearby beach, then I'm not into going there. Falmouth was like that, and I hated that port. CocoCay sounds cool if they can in fact get a dock. I definitely wouldn't want to tender.

    I know others said they aren't into it, but I'd like going to Mexico. I've never been there before... Canada has always been the way closer neighbor to me.

    Me, too.
    I liked Amber Cove, when I was there a few years ago. No pressure from "local vendors" like at Nassau or the straw-market at Labadee, and the newly-built port area is really nice. We did an all-inclusive for the day at a villa at a nearby resort -- with a beach, but since we had an open bar we stayed near it :D -- and it was awesome.

    CocoCay sounds cool if they can in fact get a dock. I definitely wouldn't want to tender.

    70K tendered when they went to Grand Cayman, but I can't imagine it was pretty. I was there last October and I liked the place, but tendering is always a bear.
    I know others said they aren't into it, but I'd like going to Mexico. I've never been there before... Canada has always been the way closer neighbor to me.

    The only Mexican ports on this side that I can think of are Cozumel and Costa Maya. I like Coz; Costa Maya is kinda meh.

    The problem with CocoCay is it so freaking close to Florida.The ship would barely be moving the whole cruise and if the weather is chilly in Florida it is also in CocoCay.Other than that if the tender boats where gone it is awesome.

    They could just sail in circles, or if needed, sail away from any wet weather. That happens a lot with short cruises and used to happen with "cruises to nowhere." It's better because slow cruising reduces the wind across the deck...better for bands playing the pool-deck stage.
    and if the weather is chilly in Florida it is also in CocoCay.

    Now that IS a valid concern.
    Dangit, I wanna go. The snorkeling is great at CocoCay and I haven't been there since right before the first 70K.
    Other than that if the tender boats where gone it is awesome.


    Yep, the new dock is supposed to be finished by October, plus they're upgrading the facilities on the island to handle two big ships at once. Right now their larger ships seldom stop there (excepting Anthem).

    I feel like I'm the only one that enjoyed Costa Maya. Probably because I left the port. Spent all afternoon in Mahahual eating tacos and drinking beer on a shaded couch. It was nice.

    That was the case on Barge to Hell, as Nassau was quite close. You could see the circles on the trip map. We also got to see some pool deck shows with a lightning storm off in the distance. It was fantastic.

    Ahh gracias!

    Amber Cover in Dominicana seems really interesting.

    There are some waterfalls nearby that seem to be for the adventurist.

    I love souvenirs!
    Costa Maya, Mexico was great for temples but not one sticker, in the port. Not one!
    I've been to Mexico 6 times!
    So I just wanna go somewhere else. Exotic. New.
    Never been to the Bahamas either.
    CocoCay looks wonderful.
    But, I think I would hate to sail around in circles.
    I'd rather a more further out into the Caribbean experience.
    Grand Turk to this day, remains my favourite port we sailed to, so far.
    :boobs:

    Well, I hear it's rubbish!
    I've never been there.
