Sea Monkey Send-Off

We asked our event organizer friends Team Pandy to come up with a social event for Sea Monkeys the night before we sail, to help kick things off in the proper fashion—a sort of “pre-cruise shore excursion,” as it were. They’ve put together the Sea Monkey Send-Off, happening Saturday, Feb. 17th, 6 pm – 9 pm at the San Diego Comic Art Gallery, in the city’s Liberty Station area. more…

Loreto

Two More Sea Days!

La Paz (Pichilingue)

(Day 5 – Thu. Feb. 22)

A tranquil way of life abounds in La Paz, which means “peace.” Among its simple pleasures: strolling the palm-shaded malecón, lazing on the beautiful beaches of nearby Pichilingue Peninsula, snorkeling sapphire seas at lovely Los Islotes, home to a colony of inquisitive sea lions.

The Oosterdam will disembark at the walk-off port of Pichilingue; free shuttles will be provided to the downtown La Paz area.

San Diego, CA

(Day 1 – Sun. Feb. 18)

Our port of departure has the sun, the beaches, and the climate to die for. And is, of course, home of San Diego Comic-Con. Lots to do before or after we sail, including a visit to The San Diego Zoo, or just kicking around the Gaslamp District, which has a boggling number restaurants and hangout spots. Beaches? Yep: Coronado, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla. Not a bad start.

Sea Day!

(Day 2 – Mon. Feb. 19)

The sea days are when JoCo Cruise really shines. In addition to the Official performances, there’s a host of other onboard activities, gaming and writing events and panels, Shadow Cruise events, and JoCo Cruise’s famous “Office Hours,” where Official guests host informal gatherings in a wide variety of venues. Some of which may just be bars.

Cabo San Lucas

(Day 3 – Tue. Feb. 20)

Maritime desert climates, beaches galore, crystal-blue surf, and big game fish along the southern coast of rugged Baja California. Find classic Mexico in San Jose del Cabo, the old town, and a resort-fringed coast nearly always slathered in sunshine. Wear sunglasses on Lover’s Beach, and forays to Las Playitas — a series of mini-beaches tucked into weathered coves.

Loreto

(Day 4 – Wed. Feb. 21)

This seaside village awaits us with its malecon, ocean and shore adventures, and enough quaintness to fill a seaside mountain-sized burrito. Not a common cruise ship destination, Loreto is ready to welcome Sea Monkeys with open arms.

In the afternoon/evening we’ll be throwing a big music festival where everyone can get together for awesome shows (including Jonathan’s big “full band” set). The town of Loreto will also be holding a food festival where Sea Monkeys can sample the cuisine from numerous local restaurants and vendors.

Two More Sea Days!

(Days 6 & 7 – Fri. & Sat. Feb. 23 & 24)

The sea days are when JoCo Cruise really shines. In addition to the Official performances, there’s a host of other onboard activities, gaming and writing events and panels, Shadow Cruise events, and JoCo Cruise’s famous “Office Hours,” where Official guests host informal gatherings in a wide variety of venues.
