    No Independence on the port schedule for Cozumel either.
    That's alarming. I can't help but think that there's trouble in Paradise. I figure a cancellation would not be announced until every possibility is exhausted for UMC.

    I've known since Skipper's thank you address at the end ok 70k 2019 that we'd run into trouble !
    He made a mistake when announcing the changed dates and announced January 7th-11th instead of February 7h-11th ! That would have been the logical choice as not in the middle of a week and closer to the customary dates and not as close to holiday season as early January !
    But he was too damn proud to admit his mistake and still stands by it. But it explains why he's been scrambling all year long without giving any real info to try to make it happen nonetheless on those (wrong) dates. I'm now fully prepared to see the thing cancelled as he realizes he can't make it :'(



    ...



    Yeah this theory is pure bullshit as the dates would collide with that of Monsters Of Rock also on the Indy... just making some fun, we need it ;)

    The cruise is listed here: https://www.cruisemapper.com/ships/Inde ... =itinerary
    Not anymore.
    That’s...interesting.
    Well it is still here: https://www.cruisetimetables.com/cruise ... -2020.html

    You know that the internet is not a 100% reliable source of information, right?

    Also, if the cruise would be cancelled (and I'm very certain that it is NOT), then the RCCL website would start selling tickets almost right away for a regular cruise those dates. They don't want their ship to be just laying in port for 4 days not generating revenue.

    Do you really think that a site like cruisemapper would be informed of the cancellation and basically post it (by removing the cruise) before there's info anywhere else?

    This also explains why Andy picked the dates he did. If you look at the Independence's schedule for January there is only 1 itinerary that is 4 days. If you look at February there are 2 itineraries that is 4 days. Both of those itineraries in February are not available for 70K due to 1) Rock Legends booked one of them and 2) the Feb 13 cruise is right after Monsters of Rock and they will not book charter cruises like this back to back.

    I do think that Andy is having trouble booking bands this year. While the cruise takes place just after the holiday travel season anyone traveling that weekend before is doing so at the tail in of it. Airfare prices are higher that weekend. No only is that impacting survivors but is impacting bands and 70K as well. Also, with the US visa troubles that are occuring at the moment, that will impact bands who 1) have members coming from countries that require a US visa to enter and 2) some bands will play the cruise if they can make it part of a North America tour which would require work visas.

    After attending the past 5 cruises I am at the point where there isn't really anything they can announce that would really blow me away. While I will always like plenty of the bands booked my real drive is hanging out with all of the wonder friends and friends to be during the cruise week. Unfortunately, I am in a position now that I will most likely not be returning to the cruise in 2020. If Andy would have started announcements and sent booking codes out in July/early August, I was ready to sign up. Between then and now priorities in my life have taken a pleasant shift. Plus I really think UMC's lack of communication is very disrespectful and has really worn me thin.

    Did RCCL call cruisetimetables.com and tell them it's off? Of course not. But they're pulling their info from somewhere, so it's odd that it has suddenly disappeared when it was there before.

    At this point, it obvious that something has gone wrong. Whether that's an indication that the cruise will cancel (unlikely) or it's just a significant delay (more likely) remains to be seen. Either way, the clusterfuck continues...

    Is it though? I mean that is the huge problem we have, we just don't know shit.

    Is it all a marketing stunt?
    Is it just because Andy likes it this way?
    Is there a problem?

    No one knows because UMC does not say anything meaningful at all!!

    We know that they do start announcing bands without having booked all 60 of them. So even having problems booking all the bands should not stop them.

    No idea here... It really is frustrating to see us as customers standing figuratively before UMC's doorway and SCREAMING to get any information what so ever and then being handed over the Pool Girl Calendar without any further comment. Very sad the whole situation.

    The cheapest cabin is 1300 US? 1700 CAD?

    That's a lot of dough.

    The suite prices are drunk.
    The delta per person from 2019 varies from -$200 to +$266.
    So booking a J3 with 4 people will cost you $1064 MORE total, while booking a GS with 4 people will cost you $800 LESS total.
    But booking the SAME J3 with 3 people will only cost $99 more, and the SAME GS with 2 people is the same price, while the price for a J4 with 2 people went DOWN $200 total.

    So, currently 8pm Saturday 21st September in Vancounver.

    How do they do this now?

    Smash through the opening bands over the next 24 hours, concurrently sending out Gold and Silver survivor emails.

    Open booking for Golds. Morning of Monday 23rd.

    24 hours later open booking for Silvers. Morning of Monday 24th.

    24 hours later open bookings to the public, so they've at least got the best part of a day to take advantage of the payment plan.

    Possible, batshit crazy, but possible.

    Gold emails should have already been sent for a booking opening Monday 9am PST, like last year, where they were sent exactly 60 hours prior. I actually received mine a few minutes before Andy announced them!

    Also, note that the price list wasn’t announced. In fact, NOTHING has been announced since February.
    No new post in 26h either, so they really don’t seem to be in any kind of hurry.

    Since October 7th is the cutoff date for many fees, I am guessing that this will become the new cutoff date for benefiting of the payment plan - pay 25% at booking time, then 25% on October 25th, and after.

    Gold emails should have already been sent for a booking opening Monday 9am PST, like last year, where they were sent exactly 60 hours prior. I actually received mine a few minutes before Andy announced them!
    Plenty of cases when we've had much less notice though.

    70K 2014, I got my gold email 4pm Australian time April 1st, with bookings to open 5pm EST April 1st. Doing my math I think that is only 15 hours notice.
    70K 2016, email received 5pm June 25th, bookings opening 3pm EDT on June 25th.

    So yeah, less than 24 hours notice is likely.

    Indeed, for 2016 and 2018 I also received my booking code the day before. 2017 was 2 days before.
    I don't think booking codes being sent *this morning* for booking on Monday is likely, though.

    Maybe :mrgreen: just open booking and send out the mails at the same time.

    Can’t see them announcing anything on a Sunday or Monday.UMC is bound by contract to do certain things and slapping a price list up by September 25th was probably one of them.Plus the list is all over the place price wise,not even worth trying to figure out how the cabin with 3 sq. ft more space and a balcony (3B) is cheaper than one without (1M).They made mistakes last year but the whole pricing scheme is “drunk” as stated above.

    6 days till the 100 days mark.
    Last year, we got a 100 Days post on October 23.
    By then, we knew 35 bands.

    I would open a “guess the number of bands announced by the 100 days mark” thread, but I think everybody is tired of this bullshit.

    That kind of guessing game actually is what keeps me sane. If nothing is going on from UMC then we will need something going on in the forum. ;-)

    Aloha sailors

    Frustrated sailors...

    Just got back from the pub with a stack of metal mates (a friend's farewell - who's moving to Helsinki).
    Everyone there - we were all talking about this cruise and everyone but 1 or 2
    convinced this thing is over. It's cancelled.
    A couple of us sticking it out til it really is.
    Flights - hotels - awful exchange rates - all of that discussed.
    Depressing.

    What did we have this time last year? 38 bands?

    This year, 0.

    I don't see it happening.

    All of us complaining about the lack of communication, the silence, at the pub.
    Instead of a awesome vibe, a 10yr celebration vibe, metal vibe, it was a sour vibe.

    The effect this silence has on us, just a dozen metallers in a Sydney pub...not to mention worldwide.

    Doro (US girl) not the singer, was mentioned and how the beach party was still going ahead etc.
    Scratching heads, no one has answers.

    EPICA is confirmed, we all believe.
    SO WHY NOT JUST COME OUT WITH IT ALREADY?
    Grrrrrrrr

    Getting on the train to come home, was fucking depressing. We all should be hyper.

    93 days to go - zip.

    Hardly a 10yr celebrating mood.

    People say oh It'll the 10th of the 10th....why is anyone's guess.
    I see no logic in that.

    So many piked.

    I personally believe that we'll get something in a day or few...still holding onto that, like Stallone hanging on that cliff in that movie
    Cliffhanger. HA HA ha ehh ....uh.....emm...yeah.....

    QUESTION 1:

    1 - NO. Definitely not booked flights already. Would I have, if bookings were open and we had some bands already? Probably not - would be holding onto the hope that prices will drop and will look actively to book Nov/Dec.

    2- NO. Will head to Europe if 70K is cancelled. Maybe for a short trip in January to catch a tour or two (like the Elvenking/Brothers of Metal tour!) and with a plan to head there again (or maybe even Japan!) later in the year. Because, I could do both those things for the cost of 70K!

    3 - I imagine there will be a few there to beach party in January. But like your shindig today, it would be more of a wake than a party :cry:

    Not applicable for me, since we'll probably drive down to Fla. from Atlanta.
