Lineup Updated!

Have you looked at the JoCo Cruise 2019 lineup lately? We’ve just added a whole bunch more names to our list of performers and guests for this year—some old friends, and some new faces (who are, as The Simpsons says, are just friends you haven’t met).

Poke around at your leisure and see what’s in store for this year!

JoCo Cruise 2019 is Nearly Sold Out!

Word to the wise: JoCo Cruise 2019 has been selling with unprecedented speed (for us, certainly), and as of this writing, we have fewer than 20 cabins left available. Do not delay if you want to guarantee your spot on board! (And if it does sell out before you get the chance, you can at the very least join our wait list to be notified if/when any cabins become available due to cancellations and such.) Don’t miss out!

They Might Be Giants join JoCo Cruise 2019!

Yes, even as we lie in a joyful stupor recalling our time together on JoCo Cruise 2018, we are already hard at work making 2019 the even MORE best ever. We’ve made this big announcement in a few places, but just in case you missed it: They Might Be Giants will be joining JoCo Cruise 2019!

(Days 6 & 7 – Thu. & Fri., Mar. 14 & 15)

Enjoy the plethora of activities on board (panels, gaming, crafting, and dozens of other options); 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!

Fort Lauderdale, FL

(Day 1 – Sat. Mar. 9)

Half Moon Cay

(Day 2 – Sun. Mar. 10)

Half Moon Cay is Holland America’s private island in the Caribbean, and an all-time favorite beach and relaxation spot for JoCo Cruise. Sun, fun, pristine white sand beaches, plus trails to wander and (of course) food and beverages. It’s also a protected nature preserve, giving you as close to the Castaway experience as you can get without actually being stranded there.

San Juan

(Day 5 – Wed. Mar. 13)

San Juan was one of JoCo Cruise’s most popular port stops ever. Was it because of the city and people’s rich history and culture? Maybe. Was it the special excursion to Arecibo Observatory? Perhaps.

For 2019 you’ll still have an opportunity to enjoy everything that San Juan and its environs have to offer; later that day and evening we’ll be holding our annual Land Concert there. [details forthcoming]


(Day 4 – Tue. Mar. 12)

If dreams had dreams, they would dream about Tortola. We sure as heck are!
