    In all seriousness.... I actually wonder if UMC is not tits-up. A year with no revenue of any kind, and RC canceling cruises until spring.

    I hope not, of course.. but ....

    They just paid someone to stand back up the website, probably as part of some behind the scene upgrade (speculation on my part, but it would not surprise me). Also they are still paying the social media team. I fear for that possibility that they might go under as well, but I would think, for right now at least, sign point towards no.

    If the web site was still DOA or the social media team had gone silent, I would be more inclined to agree.

    Yeah it sucks not to have any info even though it's less than a month until the supposed 2021 cruise. As someone who has studied and worked in the media field this is very annoying. Even some short message of acknowledgement at some point would've been good. But yeah, Andy just being Andy.
    I understand that they have to wait until a certain point or to wait for the cruise line to cancel before announcing due to insurance things and possible artist agreements. That was the same with most Finnish festivals last summer because they had to wait until the government officially banned all events. But still, it's been pretty clear for a long time that we won't sail for 70K in January 2021, maybe in best case sometime in later 2021 if there will be a 2021 cruise and not just postponing it to January/February 2022.

    Also interesting point is the question of the cruise line and/or ship. There was no announcement made that we would have again sailed on Indy in January 2021 even though the ship is in the background photo. If you assume that there won't be a 2021 cruise then next one is 2022. If you look at RCC's cruises on sale at the moment for the next year aka January to February 2022, you'll see that Indy will sail from Orlando (Port Canaveral) and Freedom, Oasis and Symphony from Miami & Allure and Odyssey from Port Everglades. (I didn't count the RCC ships that are smaller than Indy) So if the cruise continues to be on RCC's ships and from Miami/Port Everglades, we likely won't sail on Indy again. Of course it's possible that RCC will still relocate ships to different ports, but who knows... I'm just hoping that there will be a 70K cruise in 2022 and that I'll be able to attend. :headbanger: :D

    I hope not, of course.. but ....
    They just paid someone to stand back up the website, probably as part of some behind the scene upgrade (speculation on my part, but it would not surprise me). Also they are still paying the social media team. I fear for that possibility that they might go under as well, but I would think, for right now at least, sign point towards no.

    If the web site was still DOA or the social media team had gone silent, I would be more inclined to agree.

    Given the current evidence, I would suspect that UMC is alive and well and practicing thier normal brand of 'don't say shit until we have EVERYTHING squared away and fuck'em if they bitch' style of communication.

    You know, if UMC had kept their corporate legal entity in Canada, they'd be eligible for all sorts of assistance this year. I wonder how that tax shelter in the Bahamas is working out for them.

    similar situation , I have been staying at home a lot , would rather error on the side of caution . Hoping to maybe get the vaccine in February and maybe gradually ramp up some limited activities in March . EVERYONE STAY WELL AND SAFE !

    Good to see you are taking care and being safe.

    Latest word is that Australia will see the first vaccines being rolled out March next year.

    I suffer quite a bit from allergies so i'll be very much adopting a wait and see approach. I WILL get vaccinated, as long as the cure isn't worse than the disease so to speak!

    Still clinging in vain to the hope that I'll be able to get to Sweden next year (August) for Sabaton open air :(

    I wish I'd be there too! Hey, check this out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUCW2caH0nk
    Some good things can happen even when some things does NOT sound so good. This band has already been funded for the first album. Oh my, I want this band on cruise! Merel has been there already!

    I was ready to go to Sabaton Open Air but.. Hey, maybe Tuska.. Oh shit. You know maybe go to shop without a mask.. There were some extreme people who tried to.. go to cruise. Well, that's a bad idea. Greetings to Andy and other guys I know!

    Starting to get the no cruise blues. Usually around this time I'm ramping up for the 70K trip. Looking at flights, hotels and listening to nothing but 70K bands until cruise day. I really need a proper vacation and it just isn't going to happen for a while. When/If 70K returns, it will be an extra special event. Looking forward to it.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Unless I'm mistaken, this music festival event is the only one in the world where there has been ZERO communication to fans.
    Sailors are sitting around wondering WTF?
    I've seen updates from Hellfest and Roadburn to name a couple, but here, it's crickets.
    On the Farcebook page there's the 'remember when' pics which is just annoying.
    But nothing since March 13th.
    Not even a 'hey....we're working towards something else...we're with you.....hang in there'....2021 info....' nothing.
    Maybe on Jan 7th the day of sailing we'll finally get an update! :lol:
    I reckon it's pretty weak.
    Not bothering to even check in and give us all something to think about and plan 2022 or later 2021 is so wrong imo.
    I know! I know! It's the Skippers way...well, that's piss poor.

    Rant over haha

    Agree with you there mate.

    I think they have certainly missed a number of opportunities. I'm used to Andy's shit communication skills after 10+ years of this though :P

    Would have taken some organising, but what else have him and his team been doing this past 12 months:

    - organise a virtual event on the dates of the cruise. Wouldn't have even needed to be a 'full' 'festival'. A few bands that were meant to be on in January, playing a few tunes, hanging out online with fans.

    - organise a stop-gap something-other-than-a-cruise, like other rock/metal cruise offerings are doing.

    Agree with you there mate.

    I think they have certainly missed a number of opportunities. I'm used to Andy's shit communication skills after 10+ years of this though :P

    Would have taken some organising, but what else have him and his team been doing this past 12 months:

    - organise a virtual event on the dates of the cruise. Wouldn't have even needed to be a 'full' 'festival'. A few bands that were meant to be on in January, playing a few tunes, hanging out online with fans.

    - organise a stop-gap something-other-than-a-cruise, like other rock/metal cruise offerings are doing.
    What are you talking about man? How about a simple, 2021 is boned....we are working on a new plan?

    Virtual festival? Something stop/gap? No harm in wishing for stars I suppose, but acknowledging the reality that the cruise isn't happening is a 'pretty' low bar to to meet and UMC has failed at that in spectacular fashion.

    The question at this point isn't 'Is the cruise cancelled?', it's

    1) Will we get an acknowledgement of this before the supposed sail date, after the cruise date, or will this issue just be ignored...forever.

    and more importantly

    2) When will details of a 2022 or other follow up cruise be announced (assuming one will happen at all)

    I SOOO want 70K to get on track in 2022 and am really hoping that Andy can pull it together, but with the lack of communication I am very worried about a 2022 cruise. That being said, a 2 sentence statement from Andy that could help that all go away...and he knows that and is staying silent to the point of ridiculousness. Nothing to do but wait and see, but common Andy...give us something here...

    Don't challenge him like that - he'll find a way :P

    Aussie dollar is up a heap against the US compared to this time last year. Cruise would have been so much more affordable. :(

    Happy New Year, forum people!

    Sad to think we won't be having our precious boat this week. Curious to see if Andy would make an announcement in the following days.

    UNDER 24 HOURS TO GO! THE HYPE IS REAL.....ly depressing

    First time since 2011 I have not been in the USA around this time of year for the cruise. It just feels....wrong

    So the header graphic on the website has changed, and the dude holding the jamaican flag has changed.

    Interesting.

    Still think we are a looooong way off sailing again. Vaccine needs to not only be widely deployed, but deployed wide enough and for long enough to show that it works.

    I think a sailing this time next year is still not a 100% sure thing.

    Well, now that the ship has returned to port, everyone debarked and safely returned home maybe Andy can now officially announce that the cruise is cancelled without risking to pay a cancellation penalty to RC ? :o

    At Sea and in life, unpredictable storms can arise and we have to stand our ground and wait for the high winds to pass. We did this last year and we will once again confront the winds with the loudest Heavy Metal growl imaginable. We are ready for the 10th Anniversary Voyage and together with you, our trusted Sailors, we are confident that we will guide our ship through any stormy Sea.

    Sailors! Are you Ready to celebrate our Tenth Anniversary of 70000TONS OF METAL, The Original, The World’s Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise?

    Survivors and New Sailors alike, save the date! Round 11 will take place from January 7 - 11, 2021, sailing from Miami / Fort Lauderdale to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and back.

    As always, we’ll have plenty of special surprises in store for you as we sail to a Caribbean dream destination for a Headbanger’s ultimate Heavy Metal vacation.

    For those of you that are new to 70000TONS OF METAL, we hope that you can join our Survivors from our International Heavy Metal Family - The United Nations of Heavy Metal At Sea!

    Watch out for bands, Survivor Pre-Sale and Public Sale dates which will be announced SOON!

    Stay safe, rough Seas ahead!

    Your Skipper

    Don't know what its like overseas but these new mutant strains are causing a lot of problems here in Australia. Can understand the apprehension of cruise lines.

    I received an offer a couple days ago from Holland America about multiple Alaska cruises starting early July.

    I notice they've changed the logo on the homepage by removing 2021 from it. They also appeared to have changed the coloration slightly.

    First time since 2011 I have not been in the USA around this time of year for the cruise. It just feels....wrong
    just now as we didn't wanna cruise anymore this shit happened.
    so we decided to come back in 2022 or 2023, whenever the next cruise will happen...
    see y'all there.....
