    Hey you guys should jus tmove here... The oil industry is actively reacruiting US people for work here, beacuse we don't have enough people to fil jobs. Great weather ( 30c today!!) lots of your favourite cruisers live here or around here..

    Kate could easily find an engineering job. We have no baseball though ( the AA league folded this year) .
    Hockey, mountains, and all us awesome Canucks!

    You'd have to learn metric.


    i know metric. i also speak french. i love beer. i dig hockey. i totally love Trailer Park Boys. don't care about baseball these days. people think i'm canadian anyway.

    good to hear companies might be recruiting......maybe i'll pen a move to canada in my 5 year plan. nick is down.

    Looks like 12 categories are sold out now. It's going much faster than I expected it too.

    YES 12!
    Its great, and there are only 13 bands announced!


    Wow, looks like this will sell out pretty damn SOON. Not UMC'S version, the real one. :D

    If the wife and/or I decide to go, we'd do any double room (barring the Suites unless we won the lottery lol), and there are currently potentially 600+ of those still available.

    Can definitely wait a fair while longer before we book.

    My guess is that a number of categories will continue to sell out over the next week as UMC work through all the newbies that have requested to book now that sales have opened up.

    Once that rush is over bookings will slow to a trickle again unless/until some uber-awesome names are added.

    My guess is it won't sell out until December/January - if at all.

    Wonder if Andy is wishing he did a power-metal-focused 'Weenie ride to Rainbows' instead of a Barge to Hell for the bleating moaning extreme metal sooks now?

    Well I believe Andy and his crew using alot of Sun Tzu - art of war... in booking version.=) Soon we will probably see Arch Enemy and Dimmu Borgir coming to Barge to raise the sales (sails=)

    However I got Turisas and that was all that was needed for me to book :deathhorns:

    Pissed of whishlist for the cruises:
    Turisas, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Dalriada, Motorhead, Vader, Arch Enemy, Abinchova, Northland, Sear Bliss, Watain, Slayer, Raubtier, Immortal, Xandria, Fear Factory, Rammstein, Running Wild

I don't know Magnum at all, but what I have of WT (just have the album The Heart of Everything and especially like the song Frozen!), I like. I like a fair amount of female fronted bands/music, but my top 2 favorite female singers hands down are Tarja and Liv Kristine, with Lori Lewis & Charlotte Wessels being third and fourth.

    Thanks Laura :D

    I adore Liv Kristine - had the pleasure of seeing Leaves' Eyes and Attrocity when they toured Australia back in around 2006 I think it was.

    Saw them in a club where there was a crowd of barely 100 people I reckon. Liv was awe inspiring. Sang like an angel.

    Cannot wait for her new solo album - and Leaves' Eyes would be someone who would definitely get me seriously contemplating booking 70k 2013 too :headbanger:

    Considering how quick 70K is going, I have a feeling I'll be seeing more forumites than I was expecting on Barge - the ones more prone to procrastination :lol:

    Damn! I was hoping to wait until after Metalcamp to book 70k 2013. The way cabins are flying off the shelf, I might have to shell out the $$$ earlier than I planned.
    Fortunately the Bentz!'s live high on the hog and the sections we'd be interested in are not sold out yet.

    Hopefully Barge sales will pick up. We need announcements for that to happen. Gotta bring on more heavy hitters. I'd love a Weenie Ride to Rainbows cruise!

    Saw Leaves' Eyes once. Bored the crap out of me. I could hardly hear Liv. She was way too soft spoken and couldn't project her voice very well.

    Yay - another Liv Kristine fan! Cool you got to see her in such a small place. I adore her as well - I have all of the Leaves' Eyes (except the most recent - need to get that!) and Theatre of Tragedy recordings which I love. She is just so incredibly beautiful in my view and there is a very special, soft, sweet quality to her voice that is magical to my ears. Songs like For Amelile, Norwegian Lovesong, Scarborough Fair & Irish Rain in particular often bring tears to my eyes.* I've never seen her - would love to someday. I had Leaves' Eyes on my 70K 2012 sig wish list - I think they'd be a great 70K band.

    Tarja's singing and in particular the song Sleeping Sun does that to me as well (which was somewhat embarassing when I was at Wacken by myself and I got all teary-eyed when she sang that.... ;) )

    Looks like 70k is selling pretty well, guess band announcements don't really matter, seeing how Barge don't sell as well and have plenty of better line-up so far :roll:


    lmao I had a dream last night that we were making our way to port...but there was still no destination and the rest of the bands would be a surprise. I guess that means umc has me hook line and sinker :?

    I think the addition of what are often referred to as 'hot topic' bands (Lacuna, In Flames, Dragonforce) will fill a lot of cabins with newbies.

    And I'm not too sure I want to be on a boat filled with those kind of fans :P Don't get me wrong, I like Lacuna and Dragonforce, but those 3 bands in particular attract fans that I would not describe as 'metal' fans.

    And Laura - agree with you totally on Tarja too!! :D

    There is a 'crowd sourced funding' project for a fan-version of her upcoming live release that I'm considering putting money down for. Just need to decide what I want:

    The entire interior is almost sold out. Only K remains.

    I'm going to make a wild prediction of December 16th sold out.

    Barge is why I say December 16th. Certain people just getting back from barge and are still on that high and who have the spare income to burn will book 70k so they can do it again in a couple months.

    In my experience Lacuna and Dragonforce tend to draw a very young teen crowd on their own at least in comparison to most of the shows I attend. Now this being my first cruise I don't know, but am I correct in guessing that it draws a little bit older group, hence weeding out some of the folks you are referring to?
