It’s Our Space. Join Us!
MARCH 6-13, 2021
A full ten years after our initial 2011 sailing, we’re looking forward to our eleventh voyage in 2021! Right now we’re going full steam on JoCo Cruise 2020, adding new guests and managing a staggering array of details to make it better than ever. So at this moment we can only say the dates for 2021 and confirm we’ll be sailing out of Fort Lauderdale for a Caribbean cruise. Destinations, guests, scheduled events and other details will come into focus over the next 14 months – and we look forward to sharing them with all of you!
2021 BOOKING HAS BEGUN!
(December 12, 2019 at 12:12 pm EST)
When we launched booking for JoCo Cruise 2020, half the ship was booked in the first month and certain cabin categories were sold out – so booking early is your best opportunity to secure the cabin of your choice, with a modest deposit. You can read our pricing page for details on available cabins and our FAQ page for our cancellation policy for the full refund period details and cut-off date.

We depart on our adventure!
HALF MOON CAY
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.)
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!
Beautiful St. Croix awaits us with its beaches and history (Alexander Hamilton!) close at hand. Hitch an excursion, enjoy a laid-back day on the beach, or explore Fort Frederik.
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!
AT SEA SOME MORE
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!
The quaint yet bustling capital city of the Bahamas. Enjoy shopping in the historic town, have a fun beach day on Paradise Island, or trace the footsteps of legendary pirate Edward Teach a.k.a. Blackbeard. (Which is easy to do, because he tracked sand around EVERYWHERE.)
