    The Liberty sails in January 2016 from Galveston/Texas for 7 Night Caribbean Cruises. Sounds like we get another Ship in 2016....

    This should be expected, and I'm excited to be going again after a few years!!

    Although, considering there are more bands on this boat we might either get more bands announced in bulk or when we get closer to the date they might give us one daily or two per week.
    Who knows, but I'm pretty sure we'll all still have fun.

    we never really get announcements on holidays, sometimes close by them but usually not on exact holiday dates...

    Either way, I am just counting down the days....272 Days 2 Hours 7 Minutes 13 Seconds!!!!!

    Last year Easter was 31 March 2013 and the eggs where pre-booking announcements.Once booking begins announcements are few and far between until summer is over.

    We had gotten 3 announcements on pictures of eggs around easter last year.

    Summer months are definitely slow for announcements as Andy goes to a lot of the festivals... Once summer is over we will get more!

    Seeing Gloryhammer 3 times in three days, and getting to hang out with them all so much as they were always wandering around the venues was fun. Almost like a 70k vibe.

    And I'm thinking the possibility of Mr and Mrs Statsman attending 70k in 2015 has probably increased from minimal, to approximately 25%.......

    I'll know early July whether the possibility of doing 70k 2015 is real or not.

    Wondering if there will be any announcements between now and then? :P

    Will we get another band before 200 Days To Departure! ?

    253 days to go, 44 bands to go.

    That is a band every 5.75 days.

    And the 53 day gap between announcements is the third longest in 70K history! Only got the 60 day break between announcements in 2012 from July to September, and the mighty 175 day gap last year to beat!

    I'm guessing we'll get another non-announcement on facebook next week to celebrate 60 days of no announcements.

    No announcements don't bother me, I'm just tired of seeing the "300 Days To Departure!" At least update the thread title. 252 days to departure.

    Same here Bro!

    If I get a chance to speak with Andy next cruise, the most important question I wanna ask him is WHO was it that came up with those great clues in year one. If it was someone who no longer works for UMC, he just needs to pick someone on current payroll with a creative mind and start coming up with gems like those again. If it was Andy himself, I wanna know what happened to the day-to-day/weekly passion he had for entertaining those who love the event he created. Much of the magic of this experience has been lost by the simple watering down of the build-up process that kept us all guessing and chatting about what/who to expect.

    C'mon Andy! Whatever changed, dig deep and try to find it again Skipper!! We miss the greatness that you and your event exploded onto the metal world with! :headbanger:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me
    :shred:Book 'em ANDO!! :headbanger:

    Does anyone know if there are any media sources that have interviewed andy about his strategy to band announcements? Or even the criticism he gets?

    Just made my 3rd payment. Although 2 months without any substantial contact, I know my fellow Canadian is organizing my hard earned $$$ the best he knows how.
    PSSST.... Bolt Thrower is a 2 setter for me. Poland also has a terrific talent pool of death metal that will be a huge hit onbroad, just sayin
