Day 3 – February 1, 2023
A beautiful Caribbean morning found us with the boat stranded on the beautiful Bimini. A small paradise full of restaurants, gift shops and the most beautiful beaches you could have glimpsed. Sit and sunbathe on a deck chair, enjoy a drink and observe the majesty of the Freedom Of The Seas in the distance. An image that costs to describe with words. The option is to stay on the boat and rest, since the shows will resume when the ship returns to sail at 5 in the afternoon, when in the Pool Deck Evergrey, they arrive at the platform, New setlist compared to his previous presentation. It was Vicious Rumors turn, at the Royal Theater, an amazing show remembering the classy power metal
After 10 pm, Kreator was doing his thing in the Pool Deck, riffs of the fuck and a frontman who takes possession at superhuman levels. Not for something are the parents of the thrash metal. In the Ice Rink; Obscura providing a correct performance. The moment arrives in the Ice Rink; Cancer. These masters of classic metal taught how to travel to the most oppressive confines of sadness, and return to the world of mortals with a victory under their arms. The capacity to transmit despair, fear and anger makes you enter a trance from which it is hard to escape.
Day 4 – February 2; 2023
Everything good has an end, and arriving to the last day of the cruise, The morning started early with the amazing Iron Savior, detonating the Pool Deck with its overwhelming power Metal. Nice way to start the day with a crushing sun and a lot of adrenaline. At 11:30 we return to the Pool Deck, with a sun to rajatabla to witness the second set of Amberian Dawn. On the last day, people have a tradition of dressing up, so it is quite common to witness pogos with people disguised as pirates, Pikachu, a huge dinosaur, unicorns and many more bizarre. Even Jesus made his appearance. You can not be more epic than that. Around noon the infamous «Belly Flop Contest» is celebrated, where overweight people throw their bellies in the pool and undergo the scrutiny of a jury made up of members of the participant bands

Incredible mixes for a historic, relaxed jam and among friends and acquaintances of the entire metal community. You can not ask for more. In the Ice Rink a different proposal: Jungle Rot, The show was very explisive and varied, putting a share of thrash to the cruise. Going to the Ice Rink to enjoy a bit of the presentation of Atrocity. Death Metal to the badges with a lot of attitude and a frontman who literally leaves everything on the scene, screaming like a sick person. A waste of violence and intensity for one of the hottest shows of the night.
Cynic appeared in the Royal Theater, practicing a very melodic Progressive Metal, with dyes to Dream Theater, it was one of the few proposals entirely Prog of the ship. With a show very focused; the band gave a superb performance, both instrumentally and vocally. A very heartfelt performance for songs that raise their intensity live, transporting you to a land where emotions sprout everywhere. Very high note for Cynic.
