    What I learned on 70000TONS, Year 1

    by WizardBeast » Sat Jan 29, 2011 12:55 pm

    1) First i must say that THIS CRUISE RULED!!!!!!!!!!!! RULED RULED RULED. i think everyone who went this year wants to go again!

    2) it sucked for non-smokers. the indoor venues had poor ventilation and everyone chainsmoking at bars and venues made it hard to breathe and resulted in headaches and stinkiness. i want smokers to still have their places to light up, but not the whole of the ship esp. indoors.

    3) socializing takes planning. i spent more time watching the bands than i thought (which was great, but it was less time hanging with everyone than i wanted). the idea to meet at karaoke on weds. night at 1:30 am was brilliant cuz that's when we got a big group together. would have liked to have had meals w/peeps and more hanging out with others!

    4) plan better for the excursion. we wasted lots of $$ on cabs trying to find people only to return to the ship not having run into anyone and not having anything planned. whoops! sounds like many groups had fun - wish we had joined!

    5) don't get so damned wasted at the pre-party! it was fun but resulted in a very sucky Monday for Nick and me. i easily drank more at the pre-party than the whole rest of the trip combined, and those drinks cost more than the damn cruise drinks!

    ok there were a lot of things....but these are the top 5 things i hope will be better for next year after having the experience! other than that, bring it all back on, i had WAY more positives than negatives but because i am a continuous improvement engineer at work i am always thinking of things to do better!!!!!

    Next time, you should go scuba diving with us. It was easier then I expected, considering I had never done it before.

    Don't talk to Jon Shaffer about politics. Only fun thing about it was seeing a wasted Jeff Loomis waltz (literally) with a member of Blackguard into an elevator from the corner of my eye

    I ran into a very wasted Loomis with the Blackguard guitarist as well. He was so trashed and all he could say to my buddy and I was "Where can I get some booze?" Luckily, we got him to take a pic with us. As you can see, he looks like he's having a great time :D

    Image

    Haha, such an awesome way to meet one of my favourite guitar players of all time.

    OMG, yea Loomis-(read the thread of epic events of my Loomis encounter)

    on the 3rd deck, there were 2 HILARIUOS pics of Loomis all trashed with this big dumb smirk with 2 chicks pulling down his shirt-i laughed my ass off-Bierwulf saw it and couldnt stop laughing either.

    I did little socializing, I wish I had done more. I also wish I saw more karaoke, heard that was a lot of fun.
    I agree that the smoking indoors was pretty annoying for non-smokers.

    1) Booze in Miami was waaaay overpriced and the dogs shit on the sidewalk in southbeach.
    2) Compared to Europe, the metal scene in the US (and in my hometown in particular) fucking BLOWS.
    3) Nothing in this world is perfect.... but this cruise was damn freaking close.
    4) You guys are the best. I think the world of everyone and would give any one of y'all the shirt off my back (even a Slayer shirt :headbanger: )

    Guess I know where to talk politics next time. But I think we'd be preaching to each other's choir though.

    Schaffers air boxing during the Blind Guardian second set was awesome lol.
    Seeing that guy wasted and goofy definitely made me a fan of his. I liked Iced Earth before, Demons and Wizards as well, but I never really found interested in the members.
    Dude definitely made a new fan out of me. I wish I had gone and partied with him on the boat.

    I even bought him a drink afterwards - just because we were the "two guys with taste" (quoting Blind Guardian's Hansi)

    For some reason the smoke didn't bother me and I didn't seem to notice it. And I despise smoking with an utter stinking passion. I guess I was just so high on everything else that I kinda blacked it all out. :lol:

    It seemed waaaay too easy to lose part of your group when a show ended even though you had plans to go to the next one together. Granted Bangers (Karhl) needs to be kept on a lease, but maybe we should get a bunch of walkie talkies or something. Yeah it sounds stupid, but since we don't have to ability to make calls without obtaining a 2nd job, those would work wonders. But it would also feel like a freaking chore and kill some of the spontaneity. Oh well, just a thought :mrgreen:

    I did learn that karoake can be fun. Never did it before in my life and when I saw it on the interniery, I didn't think much of it. But after wandering in there on the first night with nothing to do and being mentally wired, it was a total blast. Ended up there every night for at least 4-6 hours after shows.

    I also learned that my crazy brain will override my body and allow it to function on 4 hours of sleep over the course of 4-5 days. I feared the worst when I finally went to sleep Tuesday morning at 6am, thinking I was going to screw up my entire Tuesday. But 2 hours later I was eating breakfast and ready to go :mrgreen:

    1 - Don't drive from Nashville to Miami, ever. FLY.

    2 - Catch more karaoke. I heard way more cool moments in there than I saw.

    3 - Sneak more liquor on. It was too easy.

    Things I learned:

    - Know how much your cabinmates can drink, and how they behave when they are wasted.

    - Learn the lyrics to sing along.

    - Not bringing such a big luggage (even though it wasn't heavy)

    - Buy your merch on day 1, even if it's at 11pm! =D If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have gotten my 70000 Tons Survivor shirt!!

    - Learn some Finnish and Swedish. German would help as well.

    - It's better to go to Mexico with somebody else. I went alone and it wasn't THAT much fun =( All my cabinmates had passed out!!

    - Save more money for the excursions and shit...

    - Wear steal toes shoes in concerts. Being 5'2'', people stepped on me =(


    I didn't really mind the smoke in the karaoke venue until the very end. But my clothes did stink like hell! It was very unpleasant the smell on my hair as well.

    We smoke, but I'll jump in to agree that it pissed me off seeing people lighting up in what I thought were non-smoking areas. Was the Chorus Line supposed to be nonsmoking? I swore I saw some no smoking signs around but some people obviously did not care. We at least tried to keep it to the designated areas (the ones with ash trays, since, you know, gotta put them out and not LITTER). I am definitely one who likes to be able to leave the smoke behind when I want to (since I only smoked for part of two days the whole time), both at my own home and wherever I go. It's great to enjoy a smoke when allowed, but geez. Sometimes even us smokers wish we could come up for some fresh air or avoid having it blown in our faces. :heavydrink:

    2. The last day i bought booze with my own card ( i wasnt 21) meaning i probably could have purchased it the whole trip :|
    3. Dont get too wasted in Mexico , i wasted ATLEAST 200 bucks on booze in mexico in like and hour. :cry:

    I actually quit smoking. The last cig I had was at Miami Beach at 1:30am on Saturday morning. I took 4 packs of cigs with me on the cruise and smoked just 1 pack the entire 6 days I was in Florida....i gave the other 3 away yesterday. I am on a diet now and taking supplements and also working out.
