    Last year disappointments, regrets and surprises!

    by cycosurgeon » Sat Oct 22, 2011 1:45 am

    What regrets do you have about last year's cruise? Disappointments? What surprised you about the cruise and bands? What did you learn from last years cruise that will help you this year?

    Disappointments

    Missing out on a 70,000 hoodie and I was in line early and for a long time!
    Rage playing mostly new stuff
    Gamma Ray and Rage playing the same sets both times.
    No money for booze ( Folk metal you can't understand isn't as much fun sober! )
    Only seeing one Sacred Steel shirt, no Wizard and no Paragon shirts! The Euro's let me down
    Trying to get into the Bay Area Thrash bands but just couldn't. Exodus & Death Angel bummed be out so much I skipped Testament
    Cozumel was pretty lame and dirty.
    Seeing Iced Earth's first set and Matt singing like he was in an IE cover band and making up/changing some harmonies.
    Not seeing Nevermore because I had seen them so many times, and it turned out to be one of their last shows.
    No Unleashed singer! But at least some metalhead told me ahead of time so I could adjust my schedule.



    Regrets:

    Missing pre-party, but now that tattoo Frank's new band is playing this year's it will be double my pleasure!
    Missing Obituary ( But seeing Obituary in broad daylight is pretty lame! )
    Not socializing at all ( but I was pretty miserable from motion sickness and an ill timed cracked tooth. )
    No time in Miami ( flew in before the departure time and went from Jet lag to motion sickness for days )
    Not doing the rock wall cause of said motion sickness and pain.
    Not getting Chicharrones in Cozumel
    Being too motion sick to see the 2nd Saxon set.
    I kind of regret not talking to band members at all, but I usually respect their peace and sanity. Kai alone in the casino took a lot of will power.


    Surprises:

    Shooting hoops with Fernando from Moonspell!
    Hansi, Kai and drunk ass Jon all doing Valhalla!!
    Warrel Dane hitting a lot of the high notes on Sanctuary stuff
    Sabaton shows ( Saw both, same set, same jokes, but same fun! Their energy was just so addictive, and the damn pool stunt!)
    How good the crepes were in the little deli. Food was better than I was expecting. Was expecting Old Country Buffet really.
    Raven ( Surprised how good they rocked and how loud the fuckers were )
    How easy Hansi makes doing the stuff he does look.
    Other then seeing one fight, the cruise seemed pretty peaceful. Hopefully more extreme bands this year doesn't change that.
    All the cool animals my rooms clean up person could make out of towels
    That they let people into the sit down restaurant not all formal and shit. Didn't think I would get in.



    Learned:

    Make some time for booze and socializing
    Cruise gives motion sickness pills ( didn't know that last year )
    Fly in earlier and go to the pre party so my body has time to adjust.
    That even seeing bands I don't like can be fun at times
    That as good as last years line up was, I didn't think it could be beaten, but this year looks even better for me.

    Sure there are more...

    I'm don't have time to do a big list:

    One regret that comes to mind is not recognizing all but the singers of my favorite bands. Kind of embarrassing. Thankfully there's a thread for that now.

    Yeah, there was one created right after this years cruise. But it's descended into the dark abyss.

    I regret that I heard about it right after I'd booked my vacation to Barbados and couldn't do both. That said, Barbados was amazing and I definitely wouldn't trade that week for anything.

    Disappointments: Running out of bier... TWICE? :evil:
    Regrets: missing karaoke, losing my ass in the casino, missing Unleashed due to sea sickness, missing Marduk on the pool deck due to exhaustion, and missing Forbidden, Death Angel, and Destruction due to scheduling conflicts.
    Surprises: How receptive the bands were to the fans off stage, being caught on camera by band members holding cameras, and the boarding process and how awesome it was. I will never have that feeling again. You first timers are in for something BIG! It can't be put into words.

    Disappointments: Not getting a 70K t shirt
    Regrets: Being a lurker in the forum, so not meeting up with any of you awesome folks.
    Surprises: How much happier I was by having gone alone, and how many awesome, friendly people I met. The towel animals were pretty awesome, too :deathhorns:


    Kevin in that hat does look really funny :lol:

    This pic males kevin and that other guy look 7' tall!


    They are standing on the outer lip of the pool area. It was raised up above the deck a bit. Does certainly make them look quite tall. I think I see Tom from Viathyn in the pic too

    All right I'll give a couple a shot:

    Disappointments:
    Missing an Unleashed set because I was busy chasing my cabin mate around while she was on her acid trip and other antics.
    How it felt like embarking on a quest every morning to find somewhere to get coffee while hungover as hell.
    The food, only food I actually enjoyed was at Johnny Rockets - the rest I was really unimpressed with.

    Regrets:
    I wish I had booked direct flights. Joey and I got really cranky with each other on the flights :lol:
    Missing the forum breakfast.
    Missing Tyr's set in the smaller club (I can't remember the name - Chrome room or something?)
    Getting off the boat.
    Staying in Fort Lauderdale, cab rides were soooo expensive. Although the limo ride with Forbidden was definitely a highlight :beerbang:

    Surprises:
    Hanging out with Amon Amarth on the first night. For two hours. In the viking crown lounge. Un-fucking-believable.
    How amazing some of the bands were that I caught sets of that I hadn't been into previously, Sabaton and Rage I was very impressed by.
    The people I met and some of the lasting friendships and more that developed afterwards.
    Karaoke was a blast. So many funny moments :)
    The atmosphere of it all, none of us knew what we were getting into and was one of the most amazing experiences I can remember.

    I want to go baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacccccccccckkkkkkkkk :cry:

    Talking to you before you left the viking crown lounge about that was awesome. "He cant sing and neither can I!" was your reasoning when you told us what you were singing.

    The only regret I have is that I require sleep.
    There were shows that I could not stay awake for.
    I made it till 4 AM the first night but the next nights I wasn't up much past 1 AM.

    I'm a stud muffin of epic proportions :death: :death: :death:

    And kudos to Erik for giving up the hat, which Ralph Santolla wanted, but I took back from him to give to Debb. Who proceeded to bitch and moan that it was stretched out too much. :lol:

    Disappointment: tearing my ACL during the first band, first song, first mosh pit
    Regret: booking my flight home on Friday therefore missing the Testament post-party show :cry:
    Surprise: the boat didn't sink
    Learned: the metal scene in the USA sucks AND blows. I need to move to Europe.

    Best time of my life and wouldn't have traded it for the world. Everyone - bands, crew, forumites, Germans..... so awesome I can't even put into words how much fun it was. You guys are the best (even Kevin).

    No Disappointments. Best vacation and experience that I have had the pleasure of doing.
    ok, some disappointments. Saxon, the ship running out of beer, and running out of Coke.
    Regrets. Not socializing enough and not taking more pictures of the cruisers, also the pounding headache I had on the last morning plus being thrown off the ship at 8:00am.
    Surpises. Sabaton, Testament, Exodus, Death Angel, Iced Earth, and Blind Guardian. The whole experience.
    And since I have never been able to post pics on this site I will have to post a pic of Deb's hat on Kevin on the FB page of 70000 Tons of Metal. LOL

    That's entirely up to Debb. But I'd say World Peace has a better shot than her remembering where it is and remembering to pack it, not losing it at the pre party and then having it available onbroad.

    :lol: we both had our moments, but it was better than spending 300 bucks more than we did. Mostly I was just a sarcastic prick, which I'm sure you weren't too happy about. The site of snow didn't make me a happy flier either :mrgreen: Once Megan left the hotel I was in a much better mood.

    Other than not getting any merch (a never ending thorn in my side) my only regret / disappointment was that we had just missed the YOUR BOAT SUCKS! YOUR BOAT SUCKS! moment in Cozumel. :mrgreen:
