    Ooh, you might be right! The time does feel just about right for an announcement. Guess I'll need to check back here over the weekend.

    Top 7 Reasons to consider booking for 2017:

    1. Nice variety of metal bands but no (or very few) crappy metalcore bands*
    2. Labadee/Haiti beats the fuck out of Falmouth. What a lousy port that was. (Would still love to go to Grand Turk. :D )
    3. Good chance I'll love at least a few bands on the bill, like a lot of bands on the bill, and maybe discover some new ones
    4. Even if you end up HATING the lineup, the cancel fee is only $100 (for a while)
    5. 3,000 metalheads from all over the world, from 70+ countries!....or at least, territories that Andy counts as countries!
    6. Thirteen bars that NEVER close......except when they do. (Still the biggest-drinking cruise in the world.)
    7. The camaraderie with all those metalheads on board and the global diversity is unmatched on any cruise, anywhere.

    * "crappy metalcore" is a tautology :lol:

    There are only 7 reasons NOT to get excited about round 7:
    1. July
    2. August
    3. September
    4. October
    5. November
    6. December
    7. January

    But yes seriously, what's the deal with the absence of metalcore (not that I'm complaining, to the contrary)?
    Is it because;
    a) It's a US-only phenomenon
    b) It's an age thing

    So a serious 7 reasons for me:

    1 - Not dicks about letting you film gigs. Only ever been told off once by security (at the first Delain showin 2013 if I remember correctly)
    2 - Always bands I like onbroad that have never toured Australia - Tyr, Haggard, Rhapsody of Fire, Twilight Force to name but a few!
    3 - Discovered some bands that have gone on to become favourite bands of mine that I only ever checked out because they were on the 70k lineup - for example Haggard, Sabaton, Tyr, Abinchova
    4 - The truly wonderful people I've got to meet.
    5 - Pretty much can guarantee getting a barrier position easily if you want it, for any show
    6 - Only festival I go to where you can retire easily to a comfy bed if you want a quick nap between shows
    7 - Its a cruise ship in the caribbean with bands, booze and beautiful people. What's not to get excited about??!!??
    Upcoming Gigs:

    I'll bite.

    7. High-fiving random people all the time.
    6. My young kids get to see their favourite bands play before bedtime, with great sightlines nearly always available for short people.
    5. The hot tub in front of the pool deck stage is a fucking party.
    4. Great diversity of music, including a lot of bands that never tour near me.
    3. All of you. You know what I mean. So many new friends, so many more to meet.
    2. Getting to drunkenly inform your favourite musician that you named your dog after him (Henjo Richter in this case - he took the compliment graciously I think).
    1. The fact that as soon as it's over I'll be getting excited for 2018 because it's going to be that good.

    1. The cruise family
    2. Pre-cruise activities back on South Beach again
    3. Winter in Florida >> winter in Finland
    4. My mum wants to go
    5. The new destination looks pretty damn nice
    6. Hopefully I'll get a wish list band or two
    7. The frequent cruiser benefits

    1 and 2 are pretty much tied together. Sure, there are some people in the family I'm not that fond of, but all in all we're a pretty spectacular bunch of people. And while I do love a proper winter, getting away from it for a couple of weeks is great. And winter in Southern Finland tends to suck. And yes, the main reason I'm (most likely) going is that my mum wants to go. Labadee looks nice. I'm not holding my breath over getting any real wishlisters onbroad, but a few old school death metal bands and some girlie metal would be nice. I'd say my number one wish atm is Draconian and they were just announced for the Winter Days of Metal festival, so I'll get my chance to see them there.
    And, yes, number seven on my list is the frequent cruiser benefits. :lol:

    I missed the shenanigans on South Beach - good times, I take it? Probably still going to get a hotel in FLL and carpool down to the beach party. Just for convenience of getting to port in the morning.

    Weighing in on the metal core thing. I find this interesting too. It just draws a different kind of person right? I love Parkway Drive, but I wouldn't want to see them on the boat. I saw them last time they were here and the crowd was so different from an average metal show. It wasn't good.

    I think the answer is "Yes" :). Warped Tour is cheaper, at least for the fans.

    2015 actually had one or two smaller metalcore bands (Adaliah and someone else from Florida?). I would love to have a couple metalcore acts on board this year, but I think I'm a minority, and also the odds of getting someone I really want to see probably suck (I can think of a couple acts who would probably do the boat for free, though. Or at least do it for Jager).

    I think it's a bit of both. Metalcore is almost exclusively a North American thing, and the primary demographic is younger.
    Since most of 70K's clientele comes from outside NA, it makes sense not to include too many bands from a genre without truly global reach...and where fewer fans have the financial wherewithal to afford 70K's not-exactly-cheap price-tag.

    Then again, it's also possible that Andy just doesn't like metalcore. :lol:

    7. actually there are at least 70000 reasons to get excited
    6. 60 bands and even more shows
    5. for me it's just round 5, so my round 7 will be in 2019 hopefully
    4. 4000 crazy metalheads (don't forget the bands)
    3. music+drinks+hot tub moshpits = metal fun ^3
    2. Meeting again all that friends from the last cruises
    1. That unique undescribable atmosphere


    Now what about some band announciations!?!

    I would LOVE for Violence to be on board, but unless something has changed that I am not ware of...the band is no more. Both of the guitarist are now in Machine Head, and I don't believe Sean (the singer) is doing anything right now. Here is hoping I am wrong, I would love to see Violence play again some day. Last time I saw them was around 2002 or so. I don't believe they have done anything since.

    You people think metalcore is a U.S. thing primarily? Better let those people in Brussels with some of the longest running labels for the genre know, as well as the Italian scene, and the German scene, and the British scene, and almost EVERY OTHER country as well as the people running festivals around Europe exclusively catering to the metallic hardcore and hardcore scenes.

    For the record, I'd think most of you should know better...

    Good info, but then, why aren't there any metalcore band in any wish list? Statsman, can you confirm?

    Personally, I only saw a metalcore band live twice:
    - Once, I found myself by accident at the exact center of a As I Lay Dying show moshpit right before it started. *BIG MISTAKE* :-) The show was good, though.
    - I watched a Killswitch Engage show from a VIP bar recently. Good show, but boring IMO.

    Well its hard for me to quantify as I don't know exactly which bands are metalcore or not.

    BUT, looking through the combined wishlists that I have for some of the bands I consider metalcore like: Parkway Drive, Bring Me The Horizon, Trivium, Bullet For My Vallentine, Killswitch Engage, Unearth, Asking Alexandria.... there are very few requests.

    2 for Unearth, 2 for Trivium, 1 for Killswitch and none for any of the others I list above.

    I would have put Killswitch Engage (whom I'm finally getting to see at the end of August :D) and Asking Alexandria on my wishlist, but I know for a fact that they are not the kind of band that would draw large crowds on this cruise. They also just don't feel like they fit, for whatever reason.

    Americans seem much more protective of the genre's boundaries and appear less likely to cross them then they're European brethren. In the U.S. there's very little cross over between a Killswitch Engage crowd and an Iced earth Crowd. Based on what I've witnessed at European festivals, it seems these bands both enjoy much larger cross-over appeal.

    Thanks for holding off on those booking codes and announcements Andy!! Britain has voted to leave the EU and it looks like the markets are going into a bit of a free fall right now. British pound is down 10%, Canadian and Australian dollar dropped heavily overnight....and it looks like many other global currencies are tanking as well.....

    I'm kicking myself for not opening a US dollar account and buying the money for the trip ahead of time....If the dollar keeps plunging it looks like this trip could end up costing us quite a bit more than it would have if we could have had everything booked a week or two ago...... :bitch:

    Start announcing some wishlist bands TODAY though and all might be forgiven! :beerwink:

    Gotta say, I'm pretty happy about it :D

    Although the Australian Dollar has rebounded a little bit today, its still worth 3 cents less almost than it was at its highest point yesterday.

    In other news, 222 days to go!

    We are now closer to sailing than we were when we got the first announcement for this year (which occurred with 224 days until sailing), and are only 7 days away from the 'record' set by the 2013 cruise when the first announcement occurred with 215 days to go.

    I'm expecting an announcement this weekend (ha ha ha ha, such an optimist).

    We're getting perilously close to the 4-months-to-pay-before-the-end-of-October mark.

    ...hadn't we already had a few announcements last year at this time? seems like i had already decided to take the proverbial plunge and go. hoping the delay just means BETTER bands! but agreed, hoping for some announcements very, very soon. so antsy!! :metalguy:

    Yes....but only just.

    First ten bands got announced on the 25th with bookings opening on the 26th. So at this time we knew that Iced Earth, Lacuna Coil, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Dragonforce, Delain, At The Gates, Firewind, Turisas, Moonspell, Children of Bodom would be on broad.

    Guess we're setting a record this year! Whoo~!

    I had figured for the past two weeks that an announcement was due any day now, especially since someone caught that October 27 was the last day for payment plans... maybe today?

    Yesterday's Facebook post from 70K was trolling/teasing pretty hard....asking us to fill in the blanks..."What do we want _____, When do we want it _____ ;) "

    If we don't get something this week I'll be surprised....but then again I've been thinking that for the past three weeks... :lol:

    Maryland Deathfest is about to announce the first set of bands and sell early bird tickets this Thursday.

    I'm doing both, so this isn't a big deal, but for some they might have to choose between one or the other.

    Hmm, this makes me think we'll see something before Thursday, based on the timing of the "big 10-band dump" last year.

    "What do we want?"

    Transparency!
    "When do we want it?"

    NOW!
