    For the 'S' band, I'm guessing SUFFOCATION with the last ever shows with their retiring singer Frank, along with the new singer.
    I think that sounds more likely than Slayer or Savatage.

    Would Slayer be that welcome? They actually rate relatively low on the combined wishlists - maybe because a lot of people think they are too big so didn't bother naming them?

    But yeah if you look at where Slayer rate compared to other S bands:

    17 - Symphony X
    51 - Stratovarius
    82 - Saltatio Mortis
    83 - Sodom
    94 - Skalmold
    105 - Saxon
    106 - Skeletonwitch
    118 - Satyricon
    119 - Savatage
    128 - Serenity
    129 - Slayer

    (and in case you are wondering, Suffocation comes in at 380th).

    well this one should be a newbie (by logic) - Slayer may be a little pricey (seeing as they are headlining HellFest in 2019) ... Savatage sounds like a good canidate for wish list bands ... but I'm thinking off the grid ....... and if Slayer is on I would think beach Party announcement final slot :givebeer: :cheers: :beerhorns:

    Pretty sure we're not getting Slayer, and I'm kinda glad. I can't imagine the mad dash for cabins that would ensue, and I think even the largest venues on the ship would get packed with just about everyone on the ship. Can you imagine 3k people crowding the top decks? Lmao!
    The trick is to program a second heavy-hitter at the same time.
    If SLAYER played at the same time as BLOND GUARDIAN, I don't think anybody would care about the other band (NAPALM DEATH made that comment in 2015).

    When Slayer played the Motorboat, Tom and Kerry weren't feeling the boat thing and flew home in Nassau. I don't think they'd do another one but maybe because... $$$

    Wouldn't even need a heavy hitter.

    Slayer if it happened - both shows in the theatre (ala Blind Guardian, 2011), schedule a couple of weenie power/symphonic bands in the Ice Rink and Lounge.

    Would easily be able to accommodate the crowd I reckon.

    Still I don't want it to happen though :P

    No change to the Gold/Silver system.

    They better spin up some extra compute for when the sales open!

    (and in case you are wondering, Suffocation comes in at 380th).
    I think Slayer appears that low in the whislist, because they are too big, people dont even mention them. Just like Metallica, Ozzy or Iron Maiden.

    Pretty sure 97% of the cruise would love to see Slayer

    Nope. Guaranteed. Nope.

    I think that sounds more likely than Slayer or Savatage.
    I mean the suspense is litterally killing you when you’re suffocating, and the first sentence is just introduction to the punch line.
    It might even be unintentional trolling, contrary to my first reaction.

    Enough time for a beer, then. Let’s do the forum meet’n’greet in a bar this time, like in previous years.


    Hold that thought. Sounds like a plan.
    I like the idea a lot. If I manage to do the almost impossible and get a room during public sales, then I hope you would welcome me as a newbie to this meet and greet. Would like to meet you guys in person!

    Concerning the line-up. So far my wife and I are really happy with the announced bands. Really looking forward to what is still coming and getting more and more excited about the cruise!

    If SLAYER played at the same time as BLOND GUARDIAN, I don't think anybody would care about the other band (NAPALM DEATH made that comment in 2015).
    Actually I would prefer Blind Guardian any time over Slayer.

    Nope. Guaranteed. Nope.

    I wouldn't mind them, and I'd probably catch a set. But I can tell you for sure they are not THAT popular.
    I'm one of the 3% who couldn't care less about Slayer.
    Same here, never liked their music and can't stand their "look at how brutal we are!!" crowd either.

    Seems like they've changed the naming of the cabin categories. Last year we were in an "Ocean View G Quad" and now I'm not sure if that's the equivalent for an Ocean View 3N or 1N. The descriptions are identical and so is the size, but the former is more expensive. Anyone know why?

    That’s what I meant - each audience wouldn’t care about the other band playing at the same time, therefore optimizing the stages, and making everybody happy.

    Location, location, location.
    Based on a quick look, it looks like the cabins between the two elevator/stair sections are more expensive than the ones either forward or aft.

    Lots of changes. Seems the redesign of the ship lead to a re-working of the cabin categories. And yeah, proximity to elevators (or at the front of the ship so a "better" view) seems to mean more expensive even for a cabin that is in all others ways the same.

    Hard to compare prices due to all the categories changing, but here are the prices for 2018.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20170715191 ... rivate.php

    That $USD44 increase per person in the taxes, charges, etc in hard to argue with though :(

    And I too am another of that "3 percent" that would rather eat pizza than attend a Slayer gig.

    Check the RCI website about sofa beds, it looks like some of the new designations are based on 0/1/2 extra sofa bed space.
    No sense in paying for a sofa bed you’re not going to use, unless of course that’s all that’s left. More money for them, I supppose.

    Exactly that. So sick of hearing "Slaaaaayeeeerrr" at every gig I go to. Not so much in the UK, but in NZ it's common even to hear "Play some fucking Slayer!!!" at gigs of international bands. Ugh.

    Of course 70k is doing the booking at the same time that we'll be broading a plane :bitch: If you ever want to know when booking will start just ask when we're leaving town lol.

    So some of the standard interior cabins are the same price as larger rooms with a balcony... Wtf RC :?

    The booking pages is on a separate domain, book70000tons.com, this year, so maybe they have done something to avoid the site kneeling.

    Well, I'm set up to book with three friends. I'm going more to see people I haven't in a long time than I am for bands this time around, and I'm looking forward to having a good time on broad.

    But, UMC, don't think this means all is forgiven.

    I'm a little tired of being given short notice, or no notice, no information, and then (most assuredly) greeted with overloaded servers all because you know you're going to sell out every year. These announcements (which have started to fall away again) have NOT been worth the wait. No one is shitting their pants. Fuck, how many of these bands have I seen playing in the last two years in my city, and we don't even get that many shows?

    I'm going to give more newbies a chance and calling 2019 my last year for a while (though I may still visit Miami to hang out beforehand). I truly hope the cruise only gets better, but that means their customer service gets better too.

    And a +1 from me for all of the above. (well okay, most of the above - eg I'm not set up to book with three friends).

    Zero chance that Slayer would ever do the boat ,is 70k sells out without them ,why in the World would they spend the money to book them.
    For the same reason I think Andy started 70000 Tons. Because it was a dream, and he thinks it would be a great thing to do.

    Slayer is sacred, period. They're just old and way past their prime without Hanneman and Lombardo. If they get announced, awesome! If they don't, then that's allright, too.

    I cannot wait to become Gold survivor next year. I hate seeing all of these so-called Platinums getting all the cheaper cabins :lol:

    LOL - I'll never say never again :P

    Probably will end up going in 2020 but it will depend on many factors - like the vibe on the boat in 2019 and what "special" things Andy has in store for the 10th cruise.

    Enough time for a beer, then. Let’s do the forum meet’n’greet in a bar this time, like in previous years.


    Hold that thought. Sounds like a plan.
    I like the idea a lot. If I manage to do the almost impossible and get a room during public sales, then I hope you would welcome me as a newbie to this meet and greet. Would like to meet you guys in person!
    Of course you'd be welcome. Anyone on the Forum is welcome, and it's not like we're strict with that either.
    Concerning the line-up. So far my wife and I are really happy with the announced bands. Really looking forward to what is still coming and getting more and more excited about the cruise!
    I'm good with it. I'm not shitting myself but there are some solid bands in there.

    Booking will be a web-server nightmare, though.
