A useful collection of the most Frequently Asked Questions about JoCo Cruise.
Here’s an archive of news we’ve shared via email. If you haven’t been receiving updates, there’s instructions on how to register in this Google Doc.
This is a handy guide for people new to the JoCo Cruise experience, to help you get an overall sense of the event and to find easy ways to dive in and “get into the swing of things,” so to speak.
The window for ordering merch online has closed for 2019, but there will be a limited amount of JoCo Cruise merch for sale in the ship’s shops. JoCo Cruise merchandise ordered online will delivered directly to your stateroom.
We’re bringing an ’80s shopping mall’s worth of classic arcade game machines, and they’ll be 100% free to play, all week long! Find them in the Billboard Onboard lounge on Deck 2. Our console gaming “home base”, featuring over 40 consoles, will be up on Deck 10 in the “EXC” area.
We assembled over one ton (literally, we weighed them) of games into a Game Library in the Main Dining Room, with 24-hour access. Includes games provided by JoCo Cruise, plus contributions on loan from your fellow seafarers.
Fan-run, active group where you can usually find veteran cruisers who are happy to let you know the skinny.
Your best place to start if you’re trying to find roommates for the 2019 cruise. (NOTE: Currently, Hotmail accounts may not work properly with the listserv; we are working on a solution to this problem.)
Of course the performers, hangouts, and events won’t be exactly the same in 2019, but here’s the 2018 Sched to give you a pretty good idea of the sorts of things you can expect.
As with above, while 2019 won’t have the exact same artists and events, here’s the 2018 booklet gives you a good overview of the overall event. (You’ll receive a printed copy of the 2019 version of this Guide on Day 1.)
