    Yeah. At least there is a fair chance a new post here from the team will be meaningful. Unlike the drivel they post on facebook constantly :lol:

    Sadly, no :(

    At one point (I think it was after the 1st or 2nd cruise?) they VERY BRIEFLY had an online store, but for unknown reasons it disappeared never to be seen again.

    EDIT: It was December 2011 it "opened" but only for maybe a month or two:

    Thanks for the info! Hopefully, they see these posts and reconsider *fingers crossed*

    In the 70K Discord channels, someone said the 70K forum is not effective regarding breaking news as of late? Couldn't understand what they meant by that

    Once upon a time, things like band announcements etc would happen first here on the forums THEN on places like facebook, instagram etc.

    But the last post from the Skipper here was when he announced the dates etc back in May. He never even bothered to make an official post here about the destination being Bimini which was officially announced on other channels like the website, facebook, etc.

    Heck, some trust-fund kids rode jet skis from Miami to Bimini, recording it all for social media, of course.

    Upon arrival they were promptly arrested by the Bimini authorities for illegal entry. :lol: :lol:

    The fastest "cruise ship" in the Western Hemisphere, Bimini Superfast (a converted ferry), makes a daily gambling run to Bimini and back: there's a casino onboard and also one in Bimini. Doesn't take them too long to make the transit. :D

    Yeah. At least there is a fair chance a new post here from the team will be meaningful. Unlike the drivel they post on facebook constantly :lol:
    "Sailors! Wouldn't you like to relax in the\Caribbean sun enjoying bands on the pool-deck?"
    "70K, wouldn't it be nice if you gave us some bands and booking codes?"

    It would be comical if it wasn't so sad.

    Even though I've never been, I'm on the Monsters of Rock cruise's mailing list.

    Just received their WEEKLY. UPDATE. EMAIL.

    It saddens and frustrates me that that cruise has got its shit together so good. Sailing END OF APRIL. Full lineup announced with a bunch of bands I would have loved to see on 70k (Burning Witches, Nestor, Stryper, Wig Wam, Reckless Love, Queensryche, Saxon). Weekly email updates with MEANINGFUL information......

    Meanwhile we've got no prices, no bands.... just daily social media updates with zero useful content that are only serving to frustrate and alienate cruisers more and more every day....

    It's frustrating for sure. I was pretty intent on going, but I'm not so sure anymore.

    On another note, I saw Queensryche open for for Judas Priest back in March. Holy sh*t they were good.

    It was my first time seeing them so I'm not sure if they INTENTIONALLY made their live sets harder, faster, and "more metal" when touring with Judas Priest but that's what they did when I saw them. I was completely blown away. I had only heard them on the radio beforehand where it's kinda soft and gentle. I had no idea they could blow the roof off the place like that live.

    I think the difference is MORC is done by a company (On The Blue) that is in the business of charter music cruises. They typically do at least 3 or 4 per year (MORC, Cruise To The Edge, OTB Cruise which used to be the Moody Blues cruise, etc.). They may get back to another Megacruise one day. They also have a less complex task because most of their cruisers WANT a lot of repeats with some new ones mixed in. They seem to have an in with a lot of those bands because of that.

    I'm under the impression that booking for 70K is more a one man show.

    Just received their WEEKLY. UPDATE. EMAIL.

    It saddens and frustrates me that that cruise has got its shit together so good. Sailing END OF APRIL. Full lineup announced with a bunch of bands I would have loved to see on 70k (Burning Witches, Nestor, Stryper, Wig Wam, Reckless Love, Queensryche, Saxon). Weekly email updates with MEANINGFUL information......

    Meanwhile we've got no prices, no bands.... just daily social media updates with zero useful content that are only serving to frustrate and alienate cruisers more and more every day....
    I think the difference is MORC is done by a company (On The Blue) that is in the business of charter music cruises. They typically do at least 3 or 4 per year (MORC, Cruise To The Edge, OTB Cruise which used to be the Moody Blues cruise, etc.). They may get back to another Megacruise one day. They also have a less complex task because most of their cruisers WANT a lot of repeats with some new ones mixed in. They seem to have an in with a lot of those bands because of that.

    I'm under the impression that booking for 70K is more a one man show.
    Yeah that's the problem.

    Andy insists on doing everything himself when he's made it abundantly clear to everyone that he can't keep up with it. In 2020 he promised responsibility delegation and more, but look where we're at now.

    Tomorrow is one month until the payment plan cutoff date. I wonder if they'll have to change their Payment Plan terms again.
    Give me Behemoth and I'll be ecstatic

    All we can do is wait. Obviously we are unhappy with how Andy is managing things and I completely understand people's frustration. I like to think good things are worth the wait, though

    My main concern is that the only other time we've waited this long or longer was 2020. When we ended up with 24 bands from the USA on the lineup. 48 sets worth of music, of which I saw 6 I think?

    The longer we have to wait, the more I think skipper is needing to dig deep to complete the lineup. And to me that means, US bands that don't have to travel internationally, and don't have to plan in advance as much as the internationals do.

    While there are a few US bands I'd like to see, I cannot think of one that would make me go "HOLY SHIT!" so I really don't want (but really DO EXPECT) 25+ american bands on broad.

    Full Metal Cruise this morning announced the initial lineup for their "encore" cruise they are doing September 20th, 2023. Immediately after their previous sailing because that one has sold out already.

    That's right - Full Metal Cruise have two cruises NINE MONTHS AFTER 70k 2023. Both have initial lineups and one has sold out already.

    After everything we've been through the past few years, I genuinely didn't think it would be as bad as this again :cry:

    The fact that we are 130 days out and still do not know prices let alone bands, makes it EASILY the 'worst' apart from 2020. And its literally'only' a few weeks until we start approaching THOSE levels for latest we've known prices (107 days out)

    PURE SPECULATION NOT BASED ON ANY FACTS, but my thinking is that they are having to throw around money to entice enough bands to complete the lineup.

    And that is why WE dont know prices yet because THEY haven't finalised how much they need to charge us to cover the cost of how much THEY are needing to spend to complete the lineup.

    To be really honest.... same here for me.
    And its been to most frustranting 70k so far. I was used to the wait, but i did put too much expectations that they would've taken that time to make things more organized for us.

    I'm seriously disappointed with how things are happening this year and about to give up going because I have to call my vacations until next monday and, so far, I just can't trust 70k right now. Travelling from outside US to the boat takes a lot risks when it comes to flight prices and exchange rates... and without knowing how much the cabin would cost just makes it impossible for me to plan it ahead... and flights keep getting more and more expensive by the day

    Same here mate. The exchange rate is dropping daily meaning that a cabin now, at past prices, would be about $500 MORE for me now than if I could have had it all paid up 3 months ago.

    The good thing about only going as far as Bimini is that we can sail with 30 bands and let the others motorboat to the ship for the return.

    Yeah, I'm thinking along those lines too. I think that's another part of why MORC pulls in a lot of acts that 70K doesn't. Their cabins are always more expensive for the literal same cabins. Which likely means higher guarantees for the acts. Fingers crossed it's not too insane.

    All this waiting around really sucks! If it really is about having to book 60 bands, i'm over that shit! If it's about price and not being able to book bands....then I would rather have half the bands with 5 great headliners for the same price!! For me and my wife the boat and the camaraderie with fellow metal-heads (plus booze) is more important! SELL ME TICKETS!!

    i'm getting really annoyed by those hype posts on social media.

    the first time they posted 'prepare your wishlists' was in january or february... and for what? just to keep asking every 3 or 4 days which bands we would like to see?

    i would like to know sales start date, prices... this is just getting out of hand, i feel like the target of a really bad joke.

    the first time they posted 'prepare your wishlists' was in january or february... and for what? just to keep asking every 3 or 4 days which bands we would like to see?

    i would like to know sales start date, prices... this is just getting out of hand, i feel like the target of a really bad joke.
    I'm running out of witty comebacks at this point.

    Yeah their latest one about 'many bands already have made history on 70000tons' I just replied with something like 'yeah and many bands have already been ruled out for the next one'

    :roll:

    EDIT: I just modified it, to add a link to the 'ruled out' post here hehehehehe

    The fact that we are 130 days out and still do not know prices let alone bands, makes it EASILY the 'worst' apart from 2020. And its literally'only' a few weeks until we start approaching THOSE levels for latest we've known prices (107 days out)

    PURE SPECULATION NOT BASED ON ANY FACTS, but my thinking is that they are having to throw around money to entice enough bands to complete the lineup.

    And that is why WE dont know prices yet because THEY haven't finalised how much they need to charge us to cover the cost of how much THEY are needing to spend to complete the lineup.
    I never thought about it like that before. You make a great point though. With all the stupid U.S. COVID regulations, plus the high cost of travel right now, that's got to be a tough sell. I wonder how many bands that applies to though. I mean, of the 60 bands, there are probably more than half that will do it for basically nothing. You're really talking about the top 20-30% of the bands. But still, that's not insignificant.

    I feel for you guys who need to travel international to attend. Having the cruise so early in Jan is enough of a PITA, but getting the info on cost and bands this late really just makes it that much more tricky for the international attendees.

    At LEAST this one isn't EARLY January like the last one was!!!!! To get affordable flights I had to actually be flying on Christmas Eve.

    Late January is better for us.

    By way of comparison, Return flights to miami leaving Jan 26 returning Feb 4 - looking at around $1,800
    If the cruise was early January like 2020 and I wanted to fly out Jan 1 say and return Jan 8? About $5,000

    As I have announced it on Facebook few weeks ago, I have decided to not, at least for a while or not, continue to be a part of the cruise. There are many reasons for that decision. But I will continue to be a part of the forum, in case I change my mind later :mrgreen:

    - For few years now I wanted to do other trips, but never had the money to do them as 70K costed me too much to be able to do more trips in a year.

    - Now that I have an electric wheelchair - well, not at home, only when I'm going outside -, I also have the possibility to go to the shows in other venues in Switzerland, not only the Z7 at Pratteln as until 2020. That means that I can do more shows will that cost me more also, with transportations and hotels.

    - Then, I noticed that walking too much isn't that easy for me and, at this point, I don't want to travel with my wheelchair, it is far too difficult.

    - Even if I loved to be on the ship, to discover some bands I didn't know, do several shows every year since 2013 and meet some old and new friends, I understand now that I haven't anymore the motivation to continue to not be able to do more than around 15 shows in the best of the case, because it is too difficult for me.

    - And finally, I have to admit that all the patience we must have until October, plus the stress while waiting the booking code, etc... break my full motivation. I also must confess that since I have moved to the Italian part of Switzerland, traveling isn't that easy either, too much to do a big trip every year, as I have to go to Zurich or Milano for the flights and it is simply too far to go with Uber or others.

    But as I said in the top of the message, it is still possible that I will be back later :deathhorns:
