    No one seemed to have a problem with the guy wearing the Justin Beiber shirt that he was having all the bands sign.

    The fun police was there to make sure we were all taking the black metal band serious.

    Yeah, they are everywhere. I was wearing a Lady Gaga t-shirt at Metalcamp and at least a dozen persons came to me and told me I'm not allowed to wear that on a metal festival. I'm not? Fuck that.
    At least on 70k no-one said anything about my lime green "Hello Cthulhu" t-shirt. :lol:


    My friend/cabinmate was wearing a teal hoodie one night and one serious German fellow came up to him and said "zat shirt is not metal, you are not metal". It provided for some good laughs after so I'm kind of glad it happened.

    I like most genres of metal - with Power (goblins and knights), Prog, Thrash, and whatever Maiden falls into. being my far favorites.

    I like some bands from Death Metal but not a big fan but the Barge has a good line up and even bands i'd want to see

    I hardly take any music seriously at all - especially Power metal. I think theres nothing more fun than attending a show and being in the crowd. If you love death metal that's awesome, it's still a form of metal. IF you like crappy pop music that's fine I'm probably going to make fun of you :cry: and you can make fun of me because you don't like the music i like - it's all in fun.

    That being said, I hope the Barge does awesome for all the people that are going on it they deserve as good a time as possible.

    70k is much much more for me and i dont really care which one does better as long as they both do good.
    So far i think the 70K line up is great - a bunch of my wants already announced and 29 more to go.

    and i'll say this again - bringing a plastic sword to a Rhapsody concert was one of the best decisions i've ever made.

    Oh, good grief.... :P
    Those comments of mine from last night were pretty random - well, at least I started out by saying it was a general blab :lol:
    I should have known better than to go online after partying it up big-time for several hours at Taste of Chicago last night (was in the 14th row for one of my very favorite non-metal bands Death Cab for Cutie - awesome).

    Hmmm.....so where to begin to clarify what I was trying to say? Don't know'!! :lol: Ok...

    I'm not *personally* into dissing other peoples' tastes, even in a joking way. It's just not me, never was, never will be.

    When other people do it, am I offended or *really* dislike it or the people that do it? HECK NO!!! I said last night that I found it really tiresome - which was actually overstated since I usually just ignore it and could really care less. But even the word tiresome is very different than, say, offended. It's more the idea of a joke that just gets kinda stale (in my humble opinion) after being told too many times. And haha - sorry in advance if that comment offends anyone. :lol:

    Memnoch - I relate to your wide diversity of music taste for sure. I look at my very eclectic tastes in music and art and the like as being a reflection of many different facets of my personality, moods, desires, and so on. I especially love to experience polar opposites very close together as I did recently with seeing Ministry and selections from Orff's Carmina Burana in the same weekend. Another was coming home from 70K this year and seeing violinist Joshua Bell at Orchestra Hall the next day. (where it was so silent in the hall you could hear a pin drop and the music was nothing short of sublime).

    Regarding wearing non-metal shirts at metal shows - I think that is really fun actually and it seems silly if anyone gets offended by that. There was a guy at Hole in the Sky with a Ramones shirt on. I got a kick out of that especially since the guy only looked to be about 20 (also I'm a HUGE Ramones fan and saw them more than 30 years ago. :lol: ). I almost wore my Eminem shirt I bought at Lollapalooza last year (HUGE Eminem fan as well :P ) on 70K this year, but I decided against it - not cause I'm self-conscious about liking Eminem, but I decided I really don't care for the shirt - :lol: - which is basically a HUGE image of his face on the front - which is kinda obnoxious. :lol: hmmm....maybe I should wear it on Barge. But no....I bought a killer B-52s shirt at their gig a week ago which I'll take instead.


    .....ramble, ramble....

    I really can't take most things I listen to seriously. They are all ridiculous in their own ways, but who cares? I like having fun with my music and with my metal lifestyle.

    Another sold-out category, interior K triple. I guess there aren't that many cabins in that category, but a sold-out section is a sold-out section. :beerwink:

    Not counting JS and GS, which can be various sizes depending on how you buy them, there can in the case of all other cabins filled to the max limit be 2565 persons in the cabins

    Plus from minimum 116 to maximum 182 in the JS + GS

    So max number of ppl onbroad in cabins would be 2747


    This means since there are suposedly 2,000 fans we can have up to 747 band members with management with them?
    Say we have 42 bands and they are all 10 ppl, that's 420.
    So 327 press and other VIPs?


    Yes, I'm bored


    *and with that, statsman turns off his calculator for the last time, and retires*

    Just joking!

    :D

    Your max figure is pretty close - according to wiki there is capacity of 2744 passengers on the Majesty.

    Checking at RC page I realized where UMC gets profit from... cabin fares are between two and four times more expensive than a regular cruise
    Nice :bangers:

    That should help cover the "presumably" massive cost to rent the ship and pay the bands and pay for marketing and pay for techs to set up the stage and pay everyone's salary and whatnot, yadda, yadda, yadda... :lol:

    Maybe

    also I'd say from knowledge and being familiar and having a success story

    No matter it's still UMC and it's the same ship leaving from the same place, I think many still think "oh it's the first cruise, it'll never work blah blah blah" just as many did before the first 70k


    i think that plays a part too. i personally wouldnt mind being on a half empty ship if it turned out that way

    No chance it will be fully booked, even if they sell the last tickets on a discount (but you will never get to know this). But the idea of a metal crusie is now taken up all over. Starting yesterday a "full metal cruise" starting in Hamburg, Germany in 2013 for 7 days (more or less a Dover channel crossing). With Doro and Gamma Ray already confirmed, takes place. :bitch:

    70K has already established a name for itself, and as far as I know everyone who's been on it has raved about it. Barge sounded like it would be much heavier than it is so far, so maybe that also scared off a lot of people? Also, time of the year probably has something to do with it, too.

    Not counting JS and GS, which can be various sizes depending on how you buy them, there can in the case of all other cabins filled to the max limit be 2565 persons in the cabins

    Plus from minimum 116 to maximum 182 in the JS + GS

    So max number of ppl onbroad in cabins would be 2747


    This means since there are suposedly 2,000 fans we can have up to 747 band members with management with them?
    Say we have 42 bands and they are all 10 ppl, that's 420.
    So 327 press and other VIPs?


    Yes, I'm bored

    Damn! You were bored today :lol:. My brain shuts off after 3:30 pm :lol:

    Also Barge and Mayhem cruise collides on the same dates, now Mayhemcruise has a lifetime festival ticket (on land) offer aswell. I do think 70k has better lineup than Barge where only Behemoth its a top band for me. Well the one who live will see !
    http://parethardrock.se/

    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

    Really? Maybe they're having trouble with ticket sales and trying to sweeten the deal to get people to go. The headliner for Mayhem Cruise is Lamb of God so they may have some difficulties if the Randy Blythe situation doesn't get resolved.

    Headcount comparison of sold categories 70K vs BTH.

    70K 400+ in front, but its not TOTAL despair for Barge in that the sold out categories represent 22% of total capacity. Given that there is obviously band members, press, some cabins booked in the non-sold-out categories, etc I would take a stab and say BTH is probably about 40% booked.

    70K is already at 40% just on the sold out categories, so it would be around 60% already I reckon.

    The Wacken Full Metal Cruise is nearly sold out in 10 Days, only some Suites left. Maybe some European Metalheads booked it instead of "our" Cruises....
