    Now this would all be well and good if I had the money to cover a contractual guarantee. That or charging a much higher entry fee to pay such bands. Then again, Incantation might be cheap to get. They used to come down here for something like $300-$400. Plenty of time to figure it out I suppose.


    Unless you get a really good deal I don't think it's worth it tbh. I think it was obvious that most were there first time round to get to know people before the cruise. I appreciated the effort you put into the organizing but I didn't see a single band that night. Too many people to meet. Having a place to get together before the cruise is most important, but if a big band doesn't work, I wouldn't worry about it. We have 40 of them a few days later!

    To be honest, getting some bigger name band to play something like this might just be more hassle then I care to deal with. Then again, who knows. We'll see how things take shape this time around.

    I wake up & see both Gnoff and the Captain changed their avatar pics. I think that's more exciting than the cruise announcements. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I'm also requiring Donn to bring a bevy of his coworkers over as inbetween band entertainment. Wouldn't mind seeing how strong his pimp hand is with those broads either. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Definitely in (+1) for 2012, the cost will be the only thing that could stop me from making this a mandatory annual excursion. Seems like it's cheaper to fly from central Europe than Eastern Canada.

    I'm asuming you have thought of this already, but isn't she at the age of being "easily bribed" ? You could kick up her birthday party/gift a notch or two prior or after the cruise as a good will gesture. I would have easily done that if given the option as a kid. Heck, I'd even be more apt to do it now. MORE STUFF is better than less stuff on a birthday, no matter what day you get it.

    Unless she's one of those high maintenance types who demands everything done on the actual "day". :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thankfully I don't have any issues myself as our' daughter is January 8. Otherwise the wife would be riding me on a guilt trip for eternity (not that it would actually work, I would just tire of hearing her whine about it). :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    From an Australian news site this morning (NOT an April Fool's thing thankfully haha):

    The Australian dollar's stellar run has continued overnight, with the currency hitting a new high of 103.73 US cents in foreign trade.

    And there are now predictions that it could reach $US1.08 by the end of the year.


    The higher it goes, the more affordable next year's cruise becomes for us Aussies :cheers:

    How would you exactly go about "rounding up the troops" for something like this :?

    Oh yes, I can picture it now. You, Dallas and Karhl, (um, scratch Karhl, there's no way you could get him to stand in 1 place for more than 5 minutes).

    You and Dallas Imageon a street corner handing out vegemite tubes with the 70K logo on them.Image

    Or you could just smuggle 50 Image with you onbroad. I'm sure their accent would be easier to pick up than Karhl's.

    I'll be quite happy with 1$AUD = 1$USD. But anything better than that is good! However, when our dollar goes up it seems to make petrol prices go up. I don't like that. :evil:

    I think all the Aussies that went this year are planning to make it next year. Taking into considertation of people that we told about it last year and were asked to be potential cabin mates last year and said no or weren't sure who have now seen our pictures, read our countless status updates about the cruise and all the friends we made... I think we'll get to 200 easily. :D

You could kick up her birthday party/gift a notch or two prior or after the cruise as a good will gesture. I would have easily done that if given the option as a kid. Heck, I'd even be more apt to do it now. MORE STUFF is better than less stuff on a birthday, no matter what day you get it.

    Unless she's one of those high maintenance types who demands everything done on the actual "day". :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thankfully I don't have any issues myself as our' daughter is January 8. Otherwise the wife would be riding me on a guilt trip for eternity (not that it would actually work, I would just tire of hearing her whine about it). :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    hahah yeah dude she is gonna be the big 1-0!!! we missed her b-day last year because of the cruise and couldn't in good conscience do it again. We will be back for 2013!! :cheers: :headbanger:

    Still, I'd be careful myself, avoiding those strong sort of set in stone statements.

    I think this comes from being an engineer for a long time thus reading and re-reading requirement specs trying to avoid getting trapped in a corner you don't want to be in.


    Damn I'm a huge nerd, I should type something funny, but then, I don't have a sense of humor either :lol:


    Haha, that's what a decade or so of dealing with project managers and salesmen does to a nerdy soul. No commitments, no regrets. I can't see the price rising too much this year and I hope I can make this an annual sanity check. Now, let's get some bands announced and open the wicket!

    LOL - yeah, we contemplated taking our 11 year old daughter with us next year!!

    Biggest issue for us is that it is the first week of the school year, and its Year 7 which is kinda important.

    You'll be in fine company. There were heaps of Antipodeans abroad last year - Andy said there were 150 Australians, and I met a few kiwis :)

    There were 150 of us? That's insane! We should try for 200 next year!


    i quite sure that there will twice as many Dutch on board at least. (that would make it 170)
    then again, everybody has gone home with awesome stories more people want to come..

    the real question then is: who who will be the lucky ones that have booked on time?
