JoCo Cruise 2018 Booking Opens Saturday, February 25
TL;DR: JoCo Cruise 2018 – February 18-25, 2018. Full ship charter again. Out of San Diego again. Booking opens February 25.
So, then, the bullet points:
- February 18-25, 2018
- Sailing on Holland America’s Oosterdam (sister ship to the Westerdam)
- Sailing out of San Diego to the Mexican Riviera; specific ports of call TBA (but will NOT be the exact same itinerary as 2017)
- We once again will have the whole ship
Booking for JoCo Cruise 2018 will open at 3 pm Eastern on Saturday, February 25th. Complete pricing information can be found on our JoCo Cruise 2018 Pricing page.
As in previous years, your initial booking assigns you a “provisional” cabin in the category you have selected. And as in previous years, you’ll be able to request your preference of location, placement near specific other passengers, etc. (While we can’t guarantee we can fill every request, we will do our best to accommodate everyone.)
Actual cabin assignments will be made in the following order of preference:
- Anyone sailing on JoCo Cruise 2017 who has booked JCC2018 on or before March 11, 2017 (i.e., before or during JoCo Cruise 2017).
- Everyone else who has booked JCC2018 on or before March 4, 2017.
- Cabin selections for bookings made after March 4, 2017 will be filled thereafter on a first come, first serve basis.
So as you can see, the earlier you book, the more likely it is you’ll get your preferred cabin type and placement.
Pricing and Discounts
The JoCo Cruise 2018 Pricing page should answer all of your pricing-related questions, and includes deposit/payment deadlines, our cancellation policy, and available discounts. They are stackable, and summarized here:
