MARCH 5-12, 2023

We’re looking forward to our twelfth voyage in 2023! While we currently can only officially announce the sailing dates and ports of call, in the coming months we’ll be adding new guests, events, details and managing a staggering array of details to make it better than ever. We look forward to sharing them with all of you!

2023 DESTINATIONS

DAY 1

FORT LAUDERDALE

MARCH 5th
depart @ 5pm

We embark on our adventure!

DAY 2

AT SEA

MARCH 6th

Enjoy the plethora of activities on board (panels, gaming, crafting, and dozens of other options), or just chill by the pool or in your stateroom. Your day is yours to do as you please; we’re not the boss of you!

DAY 3

AT SEA

MARCH 7th

Once again enjoy the plethora of activities on board (panels, gaming, crafting, and dozens of other options), or just chill by the pool or in your stateroom. Your day is yours to do as you please; we’re still not the boss of you!

DAY 4

SAN JUAN,
PUERTO RICO

MARCH 8th
7 am – TBD

We return to the charming and historic city of San Juan, site of the infamous and epic 2019 rain-drenched land concert. This time you can spend all your time exploring everything that San Juan and its environs have to offer.

DAY 5

ROAD TOWN, TORTOLA

MARCH 9th
7 am – 3 pm

We’re excited to return to Road Town, Tortola–the capital of the British Virgin Islands. In addition to the island’s own attractions, Tortola offers excursions to the many small islands of the Francis Drake Channel. Beaches, snorkeling, a distillery, beautiful parkland, and the original Painkiller cocktail (at the Soggy Dollar Bar on the island of Jost Van Dyke) await!

DAY 6

AT SEA SOME MORE

MARCH 10th

Continue to enjoy the plethora of activities on board (panels, gaming, crafting, and dozens of other options), or just chill by the pool or in your stateroom. Your day is yours to do as you please; it’s abundantly clear by now that we’re not the boss of you!

DAY 7

HALF MOON CAY

MARCH 11th
8 am – 3 pm

Holland America’s private island in the Caribbean. It’s an all-time favorite beach and relaxation spot for JoCo Cruise that’s also a protected nature preserve; it’s as close to the Castaway experience as you can get! (At least, while still having a bar, beach chairs and a ship to leave on.)

DAY 8

FORT LAUDERDALE

MARCH 12th

We return to port.
