JCCC5 has all-in-one pricing: all stateroom costs (cruise fare, taxes/fees, and gratuities) and access to all exclusive JoCo Cruise Crazy entertainment events are included in our quoted prices. IMPORTANT: as always, you MUST book through to participate in the exclusive JoCo Cruise Crazy entertainment and events. No exceptions. (see our FAQ for a complete explanation of our policy.)

Early Booking Discount

Book by May 23, UPDATE: extended to May 27, 2014, and you’ll receive a $75 per berth discount off the full retail price. Your discount will be applied automatically to your total balance owed. No muss, no fuss! UPDATE: clarification: this discount only applies to berths booked by May 27, 2014. If, for example, you’ve made a single-person-occupancy booking, and then later (after May 27) add three more passengers, those three passengers will NOT receive the Early Booking discount. However, if you’ve booked a quad occupancy cabin (and made the deposit for four passengers) but so far only have your own passenger information entered, and then later confirm and add information for the other three passengers, then those passengers WOULD receive the Early Booking discount.

Returning Monkey Discount

Anyone who has sailed on any previous JCCC will receive a $35 per berth discount off the full retail price, per berth. This applies to all passengers in the Returning Monkey’s room, even if not all of them are Returning Monkeys. Neat!

Single Occupancy and 3rd/4th (5th, 6th, etc.) Pricing

For single occupancy of staterooms, an additional Single Occupancy Surcharge is required, as detailed in the Pricing Table.

3rd/4th/etc. The first two bookings in any cabin are charged the full cruise price. Subsequent passengers within that same cabin are charged at the specified rate for each stateroom category.  3rd/4th passenger prices include the JCCC5 exclusive entertainment costs, and apply to all 3rd/4th passengers in a given booking. (And, in the case of the Family and Presidential Suites, to all passengers up to 8 and 14, respectively.)

Child/Infant Discount

Children under the age of 3 as of the date of sailing (January 31, 2015) are eligible for a $250 per-child discount, which will be applied towards the total balance owed. JCCC management will apply the discount after you complete the initial booking process; the discount will not appear on the checkout page, but will be manually applied later.

All cabin categories and prices listed above are subject to availability. (i.e., the fact that they are listed above does not necessarily indicate that a given cabin is definitely available; going through the actual booking process will accurately indicate current cabin availability)

Some cabins in “sold out” categories occasionally become available (due to cancellations, inventory adjustments, etc.). If your preferred cabin category is not currently available, you may email us and ask to be placed on the wait list for any given category. We will notify you (on a first-come, first-served basis) if any cabins in your chosen category become available.

Cancellation Policy

The JCCC5 Cancellation Policy can be found in the JCCC5 FAQ.

Because JCCC5’s contract with Royal Caribbean allows no exceptions in its cancellation policy, no exceptions will be made to JCCC5’s cancellation policy under any circumstances (including but not limited to: personal financial issues, adverse weather, or being denied boarding by Royal Caribbean for any reason). JoCo Cruise Crazy recommends purchasing trip insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances that could impact your ability to sail on JCCC5.

Cancellation Refund Policy

If you cancel your booking, any refund amounts due to you will be remitted by check, which will be mailed to the address of record for your booking.
