Special Updates
Regarding 2021
and 2022

As the pandemic situation continues to evolve, many of you understandably have questions and concerns, and we are working hard every day to get you clear answers. For now, here’s current information we have about some important topics regarding our 2021 cruise (which, as you’ll see below, has now become our 2022 cruise). If and when we have more news, we’ll update this page accordingly. Rest assured we are doing our best to unravel these complicated issues in a way that best serves our community.

Thank You and [Virtual Cruise To Be Named Later]

Last updated: July 24, 2020

First: we’re grateful for the overwhelming support we’re receiving from the community in the wake of postponing to 2022. It was a hard decision, and we’re relieved that everyone seems to agree that it was the right thing to do. (Frankly we’re just flat-out relieved.)

Second: we’re also encouraged by the enthusiastic, spontaneous discussion we’ve already seen online for a “virtual cruise” of some sort during our original 2021 sailing dates. Funny you should mention…THO has already been pondering just such a thing! (Among numerous other plots and schemes.)

There won’t be any specifics from our end for a while—I mean, we just moved an entire cruise forward in time, that’ll take a lot out of you! But while we consider the framework of such an event, we 100% encourage you to continue with your inspiration, creativity and Shadow Cruise brainstorming.


Yours in cruises,
– Jonathan and The Management

JoCo Cruise 2021 Rescheduled for 2022

Last updated: July 23, 2020

The safety and well-being of our attendees, crew and performing guests are of the utmost importance to us in the JoCo Cruise Management. As such, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to reschedule JoCo Cruise 2021 to March 5-12, 2022.

All existing bookings originally on JoCo Cruise 2021 have automatically become 2022 bookings. Passengers in these bookings who have a User Account has been emailed with complete information regarding this change. If you believe you should have received this email and did not, please contact us at [email protected].

Booking for JoCo Cruise 2022 will open far earlier than in previous years. When we launched booking for 2020, half the ship was booked in the first few weeks, and certain cabin categories sold out very quickly, and since the existing bookings for the 2021 cruise are transferring directly to the 2022 dates, cabins will be that much more scarce. So you may want to start to think about your 2022 plans sooner rather than later, as booking early will be your best opportunity to save a spot, for a modest deposit.

We will give everyone on the JoCo Cruise Mailing List a big, loud heads-up when booking will open for JoCo Cruise 2022, so please join if you haven’t already. And if you’ve sailed with us previously and have a JoCo Cruise User Account, we’ll send you a specialized link for booking JoCo Cruise 2022 that will automatically carry all applicable booking discounts. 

But in the meantime, please feel free to see our 2022 Pricing Page for prices and availability, discounts, deposit schedule, etc.

The Home Office is also brewing up various ideas in the coming months for different shenanigans, hijinks, tomfoolery, and goings-on to help us all pass the time between now and Go Time. And everyone is invited! Once again, the best place for updates regarding this will be theJoCo Cruise Mailing List.

JoCo Cruise 2023 Future Cruise Credit

Last updated: July 23, 2020

In response to JoCo Cruise 2021 being rescheduled to 2022, the Home Office has announced our JoCo Cruise 2023 Future Cruise Credit (23FCC) program, intended to provide an opportunity for those individuals who had bookings on JoCo Cruise 2021 but are unable to sail aboard JoCo Cruise 2022 to sail with JoCo Cruise in 2023.
