    I'm worried about that too. I'm going to be away without internet access the first week of August. If Andy opens up Gold sales that weekend (or even on the 21st, when I'll also be out of town) I'm not sure I'll get a spot. Silver sales sold out the cruise last year, I would wager Gold will do that this year.

    Not quite. There were some cabins left for public sales, but only a couple of options to choose from. Who knows, though... I have seen quite a few veterans confirming that they won't be going in 2019. It may leave room for more newbies (though they will only have the pricey cabins to choose from).

    Was telling somebody just yesterday I have to take the morning of off so I can be home when I do my booking. Last year took me almost an hour and tens of retries, (30+) to successfully book and I had fast internet. I got the room I wanted but it was complete terror.

    More importantly than cheap rooms, I just want an interior room. They're pitch black, unlike the balcony rooms :P

    And frankly, with the Canadian dollar being terrible these days, I don't want to pay more than a certain amount. If Andy ups the prices again, that'll be a cheap room only.

    Same here. It took 90 minutes to finally get the confirmation across, and I was "running" two sets of browser windows. I had to take two hours of leave from work because I got there late.

    Maybe they'll institute a new, higher level of returning Survivor ("Platinum"?) to limit the server load? Although quite a few "veterans" have said they're not interested in returning (for whatever reason), if the same tier system is used again, an entire new year's worth of survivors will be part of that Gold mix.
    "Platinum Survivors: those with at least six prior UMC cruises...or whose forum name is Pellaz." :lol:

    As long as we’re reaching: how about Andy is waiting for France’s victory Sunday morning to announce GOJIRA as the first band (or not if they lose)? This will also coincide with 200 days.

    - First post during the night: “200 days to go!” with the “SOON...” graphic
    - After the game: “They are the champions”, or alternatively announce DIMMU BORGIR.

    Edit: I just saw that Mr.Kito (I assume that’s you) also mentioned a possible World Cup delay on FB, but not specifically GOJIRA, #5 on the wishlist, equal to NE OBLIVISCARIS - if Australia was playing a World Cup final in 3 days, wouldn’t you also wait until then to announce them if you were Andy?

    If that turns out to be true, it would mean that if England, Sweden, Brazil and France had all lost in the quarterfinals, we would have had announcements on July 7th!!! (I can’t see a famous metal band from the other 4 countries)

    World Cup!

    It is very distracting.

    France vs the kitchen table cloths, in the Final.

    Was there a delay like this in 2014?
    I don't remember waiting this long.
    Dallas would have the stats on that one!

    Hope it's not just another 200 days to go....Soon graphic. What a drag that would be.

    Image

    I also hear that Skipper no longer lives in Vancouver. Maybe there was a delay in moving?

    Eh...

    Well like I said earlier, each day without paying for your cabin in advance is interest in your bank account, not theirs (survivors get a 5% discount if they pay cash up front).
    It sounds silly to voluntarily lose money for whatever non-business reason, so that’s probably not what’s happening here.

    It's somehow funny to keep reading theories about why he's putting off the announcements...

    What if he's waiting for 06/06 because satan?
    What if he's waiting for 07/07 as last year?
    What if he's waiting till 7 months to go?
    What if he's waiting till exactly 200 days to go?
    What if he's waiting till France win the world cup?

    Keep'em coming, he must be having a laugh :D

    I just had a radical thought. What if announcements are delayed because he has decided this year to announce the entire line up all at once.

    I have no idea if he would do something like that, but it could explain the delay.

    He doesn't typically get the last band until like 2-3 weeks beforehand, so chances of this are very slim. I'm not even sure how I feel about it! I like the guessing game. Keeps the hype going the entire time.

    I wasn't listening, but if Andy really said like this (quoted from metalstorm.net):
    "the booking system needs to be revamped and the current gold and silver status doesn't work anymore. The cruise had become an almost inclusive event and it's getting harder and harder for new people to be able to book a cabin. "We need fresh blood""

    Doing that and also keeping old sailors in thoughts is a really tough thing to do. It might mean like 20% of the cabins are available only to the new guys. Last year I was happy to get in (not cheap) as a single person but it was close (I guess I got the last place). Now when I've worn the 70ktons shirt lots of people have been asking "did you really go there, how". If there would be the European version on "70ktons" I bet I'd be trying to go there every year. Of course original 70ktons was so much more special. A getaway from freezing Finland. :viking:

    For people living in south make some "Northern Heavy Cruise" where is ice cold outside and the shore is ice frosty. Bring the skates for pool deck shows. We've had shows at ice rink where is hot! For us from Northern Europe and Canada the 70k could be as usual. When our local winter is colder, we have a place for some getaway trip for music :bangers:

    Yes. He had the secret list of bands on his phone but he lost it, so now they're scrambling to call everybody, because he doesn't remember all of them. :D

    Gee, did I put down July 13th for my guess? That was a typo, and I really meant July 23rd. Please put me down for July 23rd :mrgreen: .

    He doesn't typically get the last band until like 2-3 weeks beforehand, so chances of this are very slim. I'm not even sure how I feel about it! I like the guessing game. Keeps the hype going the entire time.

    Not that I see much of a good reason for delaying announcements due to the World Cup, but I'm wondering if maybe, since it IS a worldwide phenomenon (except in the US), Andy is holding off 'til after it's over. Why compete with something that big and potentially distracting?

    The history so far:

    2019 - 202 days to go (and still counting down)
    2018 - 213 days to go
    2017 - 211 days to go
    2016 - 224 days to go
    2015 - 313 days to go
    2014 - 301 days to go
    2013 - 215 days to go
    2012 - 280 days to go
    2011 - 402 days to go

    Well like I said earlier, each day without paying for your cabin in advance is interest in your bank account, not theirs (survivors get a 5% discount if they pay cash up front).
    It sounds silly to voluntarily lose money for whatever non-business reason, so that’s probably not what’s happening here.

    200 days and 23 hours to go now.

    Godflesh wrote:As long as we’re reaching: how about Andy is waiting for France’s victory Sunday morning to announce GOJIRA as the first band (or not if they lose)? This will also coincide with 200 days.

    - First post during the night: “200 days to go!” with the “SOON...” graphic
    - After the game: “They are the champions”, or alternatively announce DIMMU BORGIR.

    Edit: I just saw that Mr.Kito (I assume that’s you) also mentioned a possible World Cup delay on FB, but not specifically GOJIRA, #5 on the wishlist, equal to NE OBLIVISCARIS - if Australia was playing a World Cup final in 3 days, wouldn’t you also wait until then to announce them if you were Andy?

    If that turns out to be true, it would mean that if England, Sweden, Brazil and France had all lost in the quarterfinals, we would have had announcements on July 7th!!! (I can’t see a famous metal band from the other 4 countries)

    Well, it didn't happen, but I'm not technically wrong so far... Andy DID wait until after the World Cup, France DID win, and GOJIRA still DOES have a chance to be announced... They're headlining a couple of festivals this year and are well billed in the big ones, BTW.

    What if he's waiting till 7 months to go?
    What if he's waiting till exactly 200 days to go?
    What if he's waiting till France win the world cup?

    Keep'em coming, he must be having a laugh :D


    What if he's waiting until 10/1 because that's when he completes the online course he's taking: Concert Promotion 101
