The JoCo Cruise 2019 FAQ

A useful collection of the most Frequently Asked Questions about JoCo Cruise.

2019 Email Updates

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.

New Monkey Handbook

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.

2019 Merch

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.

Arcade & Console Game List

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.

Tabletop Game Library

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.
