JoCo Cruise 2016 Cabins are Selling FAST

Mere days after opening JoCo Cruise 2016 booking to the general public, we’ve surpassed our 2015 total, and the pace hasn’t slowed down much. Many cabin categories are sold out, others are hanging on by a thread (all Suites and Interiors will likely be booked soon), and it’s highly unlikely we’ll be able to get more if/when we sell out.

What we’re trying to say is that unlike past years, we might sell out early. Possibly within the next few weeks. So if you are seriously considering joining us for 2016, there really is no time like the present.
