    Being the nervous/glass half empty type of person that I am...I noticed that the last announcment was before the first cut off for refunds...I'm starting to wonder if there was a rash of cancellations that happened not long after the Bodom announcment and it's causing some problems. I know the chart lists most sections as sold out but I'm wondering how accurate that is.

    The positive thinking side of me is hoping it's just them working and waiting for some bigs bands to confirm or sign contracts and we will all be laughing about how worried we we're next year at this time.

    I wonder why would they have problems like this after the success of the last cruise, honestly I thought they would get a bigger ship this year. There was a lot of speculation that this is a scam, our group was kinda skeptical too... this year we were afraid that the cruise will sell out too fast

    I try to stay positive but really stink at it, and having Nightwish, Cannibal Corpse and COB as some of the biggest bands on the cruise so far worries me. But after the first cruise I still have faith, plus the Caymans looks a lot better than Cozumel.

    Well if you didn't leave the port area, don't blame Cozumel.
    There is so much more to do there, local food i better and so on.
    But I had the advantage of going there often on a regular basis,
    so I got to know the place pretty good.

    Are you a beer man?

    Part from the "big" brewery I've been talking about in the "george town" thread, are you aware of any other active breweries?
    I'd like to try as many local Cayman beers as possible in the few hours we're there.


    I am a beer man, but not in your sense of the word I guess :lol:

    I tried making it into the town but I was too damn tired to do it. :lol: I had fun, just wasn't impressed with the area. Hopefully Georgetown is nicer. The island of Cozumel would do well to make a good first impression though rather than make us have to find the nice places ;)

    I'm not "worried" in the least, just getting aggravated at their poor business plan - there are cabins not sold out, why not announce bands ASAP to draw the most interest and allow for people organizing vacation dates from work if needed?

    Even if somehow we did end up with only 28 bands, this lineup already looks comparable to last time. It will be a great time, and the bands are only half the equation in that.

    Also, the complaining about big bands is starting to get to me...Nightwish is MORE headliner material than any artist on board last year in terms of drawing power and records sold. You might not like them, but I think everyone needs to acknowledge their status. I seriously doubt they'd have anyone much bigger than Nightwish. UMC can pay the fee for the concert, but the marquee bands like Motorhead or whatever would milk a lot more money to be on the cruise for a business week.

    Even if somehow we did end up with only 28 bands, this lineup already looks comparable to last time. It will be a great time, and the bands are only half the equation in that.

    Also, the complaining about big bands is starting to get to me...Nightwish is MORE headliner material than any artist on board last year in terms of drawing power and records sold. You might not like them, but I think everyone needs to acknowledge their status. I seriously doubt they'd have anyone much bigger than Nightwish. UMC can pay the fee for the concert, but the marquee bands like Motorhead or whatever would milk a lot more money to be on the cruise for a business week.


    I wonder how the pricing goes with the bigger groups to play the cruise now that you mention it. Considering there's 2 shows I expect the larger groups expect to be paid for at least 2 shows but I wonder if they do actually bill it as a 'business week' as you put it?

    even bands like a vacation once in a while, and a *free* cruise must certainly figure into the numbers

    After their gig in Chicago in April, Fredrik from Amon Amarth told me that they basically broke even on the event. So even for bands of their recognition level, it really boils down to bands playing two gigs in exchange for a vacation.

    For me, this goes to fuel my theory that UMC is having a harder time than many of us think booking bands to play these cruises.

    That's actually a bad sign...cause most labels ( especially ones that have bigger bands ) don't want to just break even, especially not for just 2000 people or less.

    If I were in a full time touring band, I'd consider this the perfect vacation... I've known many bands that have taken shows they've lost money on for the chance to get paid enough to cover most of the cost of a trip somewhere they wanted to visit... dudes in bands are just dudes, too.

    Yeah but I think a lot of the bands on the cruise have to worry about making labels money and booking agents too.

    I was thinking of making these cruises some sort of annual thing for myself but man, the lack of communication.
    The fact they won't even bother to make a thread and tell us to shut up and be patient :p. ANYTHING!

    It becoming an annual thing was an option for us - if not both of us, then at least one of us every year.

    Not now though - maybe we'll do it again sometime in the future, but yeah I've wasted too much time checking the site pointlessly for updates, become too annoyed and frustrated...

    Maybe we should make a thread titled "WHO WON'T BE DOING THIS AGAIN?"

    Maybe *that* might make them realise that they way they are behaving and treating us is just plain wrong. :roll:

    Well if you didn't leave the port area, don't blame Cozumel.
    There is so much more to do there, local food i better and so on.
    But I had the advantage of going there often on a regular basis,
    so I got to know the place pretty good.

    I tried making it into the town but I was too damn tired to do it. :lol: I had fun, just wasn't impressed with the area. Hopefully Georgetown is nicer. The island of Cozumel would do well to make a good first impression though rather than make us have to find the nice places ;)
    I haven't been to Cozumel but did go to Georgetown a few years ago. I thought the port area was nice and though we didn''t get a chance to shop in town, the town looked nice, clean, and safe as we drove through to get to the dolphin and sting ray experiences. Isn't the island British controlled? The buildings in town looked clean and newer.

    The beach area I saw was nice. You just have to get out of the very touristy areas. Would like to explore Cozumel more at some point
