    FRIENDLY REMINDER PEOPLE!!!!!

    In years past there have been submission issues with the survey.

    People have taken time to make huge comments, only for them to be lost because submission of the survey failed.

    TAKE A COPY OF YOUR COMMENTS. Either copy them to the clipboard, or write them out in word or notepad or something first.

    How can I pick minus one instead of one on the “band announcement process” question?
    It seems that it’s where most of the negative feelings towards UMC come from, and it lasts 11 months out of 12 (you could say the same thing about rain and Seattle, where I live).

    I don’t recall seeing this question in previous years, but since I’ve been hit with the “sorry, we’ve lost everything you’ve just spent 20mn answering” bug, I’m not sure when was the last time I actually filled a questionnaire (this year worked fine; many things worked fine this year compared to previous years - shit, I should have mentioned that).

    They stick 60 metal bands on a ship.

    Heya

    I wasn't on this last cruise in any way shape or form, but, I wanna ask, has the lines for the band merch improved this time around?
    My last sailing adventure was the 2015 cruise and the lines were already long at 7am!

    Maybe, official 70000 tons shirts/merch should be included in our tickets, or a select/option....like, you select this type of ticket, for the cabin and a 70k official package that awaits you in your cabin upon arrival.
    Select your shirt size etc.

    The Inferno Festival made this happen in 2017. As each year, I'm sure.

    Yay, I can finally complain about how utterly awful the square pizza was this year!
    That square pizza at Sorrento's was fucking horrible. Was like eating a slab of half burnt cardboard. Gave it a few tries but could never even get through one slice. Eventually I just started moving on when I saw a square pizza being served.....but it seemed by day 2 that's all they were serving there.

    Sorrento's pizza like a half burnt cupboard! haha

    I wonder though, is that out of 70k's control?
    Royal Caribbean might need to do something about that. Maybe.
    I reckon ya gotta be utterly tanked to enjoy one of their pizzas!
    Replace them with Pizza Pizza!

    For this year and last year, the only 'issue' I made a comment about was regarding the booking tiers, or rather the seeming lack thereof at this point. I know I'm not the only one that feels this way, but it's frustrating not being able to get the room one requested, let alone the deck, because some 3-time survivor was able to submit their info 0.0235 milliseconds faster than me.

    I thought the process was somewhat better this year. Those who wanted to invest the time to wait in line for a number got first pick of the merch, and they deserved it. I got #610 and missed out on a few things I'd have liked, but that's fine because I didn't wait on line.
    The critical thing is that I hope no-one got completely discouraged by the process and simply took their wallets, purses and money elsewhere. That's bad for the bands who brought merch who miss out on potential sales and it was a BIG problem last year.
    This year, with the range of numbers on the screen (say, "Now serving 500-599") instead of just clicking up with single numbers, I think was a lot better.
    I personally think the screens should have said, say, "Now serving 1-599" instead, to make SURE no-one and their merch-money felt left out, but Robin M., who is in charge of merch, disagrees.

    This CANNOT be done because it would require Royal Caribbean to assume the responsibility -- and the liability -- for lost or stolen shirts, plus the room stewards are already overworked.
    Also, all merch sales MUST be processed through Royal Caribbean's point-of-sale systems so that the cruise line gets their venue "cut," just as venues on land collect a cut from merch sales at shows.

    Believe me, this has all been discussed at great length on the "70,000 Tons of Merch Complaints" Facebook Group. I think the merch folks do a great job, especially considering what they're not allowed to do.

    One area where the merch stuffed up initially this year was the numbering system and the 'preview area'.

    There was confusion as to whether the line was processed by number of ticket, or order.

    That is to say.

    You were first in line, and got #1. You went to the preview area to peruse the merch.

    Meanwhile persons #2 through #10 didn't preview. They knew what they wanted and went straight to 'the start'.

    Initially the security person was asking for "ticket 1! ticket 1!" etc but was eventually told to just go by the order of the queue.

    So I think that system is fine, if everyone is clear how it works. 100 people at a time, if you want to peruse the merch, do so with the understanding that you have to re-join the queue where it ends when you are ready to order.

    This helps save time because in those initial stages mentioned above it was VERY frustrating to stand with number 40 (or whatever I had), within a few people of the head of the queue but have to wait and wait and wait while the guy was going "number 12. Number 12. WHERE IS 12?.....*waits* ok number 13. Number 13. NUMBER 13?? Oh there you are, come on through..." etc.

    This numbered system seems to me like a bunch of horseshit. Granted, I have not been on the cruise since this system was implemented, but if I wanted merch, I shouldn't have to take a number then spend the rest of the day waiting my turn and missing all the bands and potentially getting skipped over. Why not just wait in line like everyone else? Keep the line moving. 10 minute limit for browsing. Choose what you want and get the fuck on with your day! Missed out on your favorite band's shirt? Too bad. Have a nice day!
    I've never heard of another festival that does this, but this is 70000 Tons of Metal. And for a 3000 capacity event, this seems like a mishandled and OVER-organized system. Next thing you know there will be fitting rooms. Is this a METAL event, or not? Get your shit and get the fuck out of the way. That's how merch booths work. How this was forgotten is beyond me.

    The only reasonable suggestion is now that the 70K team is growing, why not have multiple merch points? Have your 70K t-shirts at every merch point, but designate band merch all over the place.
    For example:
    Merch point 1: Folk Metal - Deck 4 - Boleros Lounge
    Merch point 2: Death/Black Metal - Deck 4 - Schooner Bar
    Merch point 3: Headlining acts - Deck 4 - Outside Casino Royale and Playmaker's
    Merch point 4: Lesser known band + Premium 70K merch (hoodies, hats, patches, etc.) - Deck 14 - Viking Crown Lounge
    ...and so on. The program that is printed will have more information regarding where to find particular band's merch and when. Being prepared for this in advance would help the 70K team be more organized and would shorten the wait times.
    Just my 2 cents since I won't be getting a survey this year. I hope to be back next year and the merch is first come, first served like it used to be.

    Sorry, but you haven't seen the system in action so you don't know what you're talking about. It's still first come first served. This year, the usual overnight crowd stayed up overnight and got their merch. I got a number as soon as I got up, and when my number was called I went to the booth. I was in line for like 40 minutes, got what I wanted, got out. Boom. Easy. It's the best I've ever seen it. Yeah maybe you miss a band you liked, but you were going to anyway under the old system. Every thing you said about "too bad you missed it" is still true.

    There ARE multiple merch points for the festival merch. They take far less time and are perfect for people who just want a festival shirt. But making multiple points for ALL the band's merch? That's WAY WORSE for metalheads. I like ALL KINDS OF METAL, as do most of the friends I know who buy merch. You want them to spend the entire cruise in multiple lines?

    Hey, you are absolutely right that I have no idea because I haven't been there. But I have a small idea because people are still bitching about it. If the merch area(s) were a great success this year, then WOOHOO! :cheers: I'm genuinely happy to hear that!
    You bring up some valid arguments, and from what I'm gathering, this festival for some reason is going to have challenges with satisfaction for some guests every time. My whole thing is that cruisers are still looking for that magic solution to this, but I'm not sure if there is an ideal process or solution to it. And a numbered system seems stupid to me. It doesn't work at the grocery store and I don't see how it would work here.
    I don't expect every cruiser to spend the entire cruise in multiple lines. But if there were multiple merch points, each line would be shorter. And again, this is a THREE THOUSAND capacity cruise! This isn't Wacken, so I don't understand where the problem is. If there is no problem and I'm misunderstanding some people's gripes, please say so and I'll delete my posts. No need to make a problem where one doesn't exist. :smash:

    I’m not going to mess with any merchandise until they clean out the shops selling stuff nobody wants like purses and perfume and replace it with the cruise and band merchandise. I’ve never seen a process work so hard to NOT take my money as the merchandise sales process.

    I was happy when I found out Night Demon was still selling 70K themed shirts online. I ordered one of them

    In restrospect, this year’s experience has been subpar for me, compared to the 4 previous years:
    - the sound sucked in many places (too loud in many cases - I don’t wear earplugs -, too weak on the pool deck stage, except for OBITUARY, where the sound was excellent). I had to move closer to hear NAPALM DEATH, whereas in 2015 they tore the pool deck apart (different boat, though). I had few issues in previous years.
    - the lineup was weak for my tastes
    - the 40mn delay on the pool deck messed up my schedule, and made me go to bed early (3am, before NEO), disgusted by so many sound checks
    - the schedule was bad for me anyway, too many conflicts or inconvenient hours (I missed many bands I wanted to see)
    - I like death metal, but way too many bands of that style made me jaded, I would stop by a band and leave after 5mn, because I just had enough of DM, and it sounded all the same at that point. In previous years, bands like BENIGHTED or DYING FETUS were a feast for me.
    - the drink prices went through the roof, I almost doubled my bar tab compared with previous years
    - the lack of specialty beers in large bottle (Chimay, Fin du Monde...) is not new, but makes me regret the previous years even more, given the exorbitant prices for mediocre beer.

    Again, this is comparing with previous years. I’ve given some of this feedback in the poll.

    Looking at 2020, I can’t take vacation days that early in the year, unless I forego vacation days this year.
    That means WAITING FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS before taking vacation, and we all now how this ends.
    This year’s delayed announcements already cost me 25000 expired miles.

    So yeah, it would take a lot for me to book again.
    I know, we all said that some point, it’s like a rite of passage!

    BTW, I had the same experience as with OBITUARY on the pool deck with SEPULTURA, where the sound coming from Andreas’ guitar was filling the whole deck, it was fantastic. I guess this happens when bands bring their own sound engineer.

    Napalm Death pool deck in 2015 was the loudest set I've heard on 70K, it felt like my head was going to come apart.

    Bloodbath pool deck volume was way too low and Mors Principium Est pool deck was low and none of the speakers along the front of the stage were even on..

    All of these responses are interesting to read.

    I didn't go to Cozumel last time, but I remember reading some negative reports in the forum back in 2011 regarding the shore activities and shopping/sight seeing/local vendors etc.
    I wonder how it'll be this time.

    Just trying to think back to the cruise we all got to choose our destination....was Cozumel in that list of choices?
    If so, how much did it get the votes %??
    Interesting...
    Gracias

    Cozumel is a bit like a much larger version of Grand Turk, but without the convenience of a beach Right There at the port.
    There is a much bigger vendors' and shopping area by the port. They are a bit more "pushy" than the ones at Grand Turk but nowhere near as bad as the "straw market" at Labadee (or God help you, Nassau). There are also more choices so some prices would reflect that competition.

    There are many more excursion opportunities in Coz because it's a much bigger island than Grand Turk, and we'd also have the option of going to the Mexican mainland for some excursions -- like the ruins at Tulum, etc. (Book anything like that through Royal Caribbean, though.)

    I was there in October 2017, and I liked it. I'd rather be going to CocoCay (new dock and facilities) or Grand Turk, but Coz is one of the better cruise destinations. But we will NOT have the place to ourselves like we did at Grand Turk.

    For this year and last year, the only 'issue' I made a comment about was regarding the booking tiers, or rather the seeming lack thereof at this point. I know I'm not the only one that feels this way, but it's frustrating not being able to get the room one requested, let alone the deck, because some 3-time survivor was able to submit their info 0.0235 milliseconds faster than me.

    What's the sound of beating a dead horse?
    I guess, you'll be safe for next year at least - but I won't be relaxed until I'll get my booking done

    I'm actually excited to go to Cozumel. This year I wasn't so thrilled since we went to Labadee in 2017. The locals looked quite unhappy and they closed all the bars pretty early. They were also removing the beach tumblers too soon. I understand Haiti is going through hard times, probably the reason why they did not seem too glad to see us

    This year’s delayed announcements already cost me 25000 expired miles.

    So yeah, it would take a lot for me to book again.
    I know, we all said that some point, it’s like a rite of passage!
    Now I have to schedule an expensive trip to France in May 2020, making #RoundX even more unlikely for me.
    It still feels like I’m trying to delay the inevitable, though.
    The struggle is real :cry:

    I think I submitted my survey twice. I got this weird ad at the end of the first survey, thought it didn't go through then did it a second time. Another silly ad showed up :roll:

    This thread turned back into a pumpkin (non-sticky).
    Last year, this happened on April 12th.

    Also last year the Artists page was cleared on July 31st, this year on February 16th.

    - the sound sucked in many places (too loud in many cases - I don’t wear earplugs -, too weak on the pool deck stage, except for OBITUARY, where the sound was excellent). I had to move closer to hear NAPALM DEATH, whereas in 2015 they tore the pool deck apart
    Napalm Death pool deck in 2015 was the loudest set I've heard on 70K, it felt like my head was going to come apart.

    Bloodbath pool deck volume was way too low and Mors Principium Est pool deck was low and none of the speakers along the front of the stage were even on..
    ACCEPT played without any amplifiers on stage in the theater, and they sounded OK (better than on the weak pool deck stage).
    It was an eerie (perhaps even unheard of?) experience to see such a naked stage, but they probably figured out what was going on - “We don’t need our amps, because we have Justin Bieber’s sound engineer on the console, drowning everybody with decibels”.

    ACCEPT was the best band on the boat for me, real pros, that’s when you can see those 40 years of experience mattering.

    It felt like having AC/DC onbroard (and yeah, they sounded like them sometimes), you know they’re going to sound good, no matter what.

    The pool deck has actual speakers along the front of the stage, not talking about monitors or amps. The other stages don't have these.

    I want to do it all! I'm so excited about Cozumel I need to plan ahead my activities. What is that deep sea submarine tour? Can't find any information about it. Most definitely will do some snorkeling, hell I'm even considering some diving

    This one:

    Reviews well on Trip Advisor. The few 'terrible' reviews are hilarious - one was from someone not even on it (a diver that alleges he almost got run into by the sub!).

    Megathread? LOL

    Really need to change the name of this thread to anything but MEGATHREAD. MegaCruise and MegaDave Mustaine own MegaAnything at this point. https://megacruise.com/

    Dave should take notes from Gene Simmons and put a patent on the word "MEGA".
