Each year we welcome friends aboard to bring you amazing entertainment and to share in the fun. Some are alumni from past voyages, others are first timers. Throughout the week you’ll see them on the stage, wandering the ship and doing meet-and-greet “office hours.” Get to know the musicians, comedians, writers, and other creators joining us.

THE ENTIRE SHIP IS OURS

This is a chartered cruise, which means we call the shots! We pick the destinations, the entertainment, all cruise programming, food and drink menu items (and their naming), the in-cabin entertainment and nearly everything else you can think of. Over a year of planning goes into each cruise, and there’s extensive coordination with the ship’s crew to make this experience one of a kind.

DO YOUR THING, AS ONE OF US

We take pride in our event’s inclusive culture and community. JoCo Cruise is a place where differences are celebrated, dreams nurtured, and a good time is had by all. Express and be yourself, and join the family!

NOT YOUR [STODGY BORING RELATIVE]’S CRUISE

We create many of our own events and rules onboard that run the gamut of the non-traditional and unexpected, from our poolside Fancy Pants Parade, to our Mustache, Fez & Tiara social, to literally hundreds of hours of passenger-organized events and activities (a.k.a., “the Shadow Cruise”). We also have themed days (including cosplay, formal and jammies day—all of them are totally optional!). Decorate your cabin door, hit up a themed dance party, craft some decorations and new clothing for the onboard statuary, and wander through towel animal menageries.

GAMING, GAMING, GAMING!

JoCo Cruise has evolved into a tabletop gaming wonderland! We assemble over one ton (literally, we weighed them) of games into a game library in the main dining room, with 24-hour access. You can play at specified dining tables, or take games anywhere on the ship that isn’t hosting an event. There are learn-to-play sessions, and we even have “Cardboard Concierges” during main gaming hours who can help you find the game you’re looking for, or introduce you to games that you’ll love based on the type of things you like to play. If you’re feeling timid about joining in on a game, we have Friendly Fez “Join In!” signs at gaming and dining tables to lead you to people who welcome new players (or help you to invite new people to your game.)

500+ HOURS OF EVENTS & PROGRAMMING

Between main stage entertainment, workshops, crafts, panel discussions, live podcasts, readings by authors, musical performances, comedy shows, office hours, gaming events, land excursions and shadow events – there’s more hours of programming than there are in a week. No matter what your interest, we have you covered!

DON’T FORGET, IT’S STILL A CRUISE!

With all this awesomeness, you might forget that you’re on a first-rate Caribbean cruise. Pristine beaches and soaking in tropical culture and cuisine is part of the adventure. Back on board you also get all-you-can-eat buffets, full dinner service in a swanky dining room, room service, pools and hot tubs and tons more at no additional cost. Want to upgrade? There’s excursion adventures like snorkeling, kayaking, horseback riding, off roading, guided tours and more.
