Theme Days

2020

[October 1, 2019] Are we done announcing things in this email? No, we are not! Here's the official list of the JoCo Cruise 2020 Theme Days:

  • Day 1 (Sat. Mar. 7): Welcome, New Monkeys!
    An annual tradition, on Day 1 we plan numerous activities designed to welcome our first-timers into the JoCo Cruise experience. Make a particular effort on this day to seek out new Monkeys and help show them what a great decision they've made by joining us!
  • Day 2 (Sun. Mar. 8): Heroes Day
    Heroes come in all stripes. Some wear capes, some wear lab coats; some achieve great renown, some just quietly help others without fanfare. On this day, celebrate your own favorite heroes as you choose to—cosplay as them, hold a Shadow Cruise event to tell others about them, or whatever floats your proverbial boat.
  • Day 3 (Mon. Mar. 9): Cosplay Day
    Today is the day to really let your cosplay flag fly! While you're welcome to cosplay any and all days of the cruise, this is your day for pulling out all the stops.
  • Day 5 (Wed. Mar. 11): Formal Night
    See notes below.
  • Day 7 (Fri. Mar. 13): Jammies Day
    Everyone's running out of clean clothes anyway, so today is one big day-long celebration of the fact that nobody can make us put on “real” clothes if we don't want to!

Formal Night “Rules”:

  • Formal wear is encouraged, but not required, at dinner.
  • “Formal wear” is defined VERY flexibly. Tuxedo and cocktail dress? Fine. Sport coat and slacks? Sure. Starfleet uniform? Awesome. Full Scottish regalia? Bonnie. Your best t-shirt? Skrelnik. You get the idea.
  • Fezzes, tiaras and mustaches are encouraged—but again, not required. (The wearing of fezzes and tiaras on Formal Night has become a JoCo Cruise tradition for many.)
  • The only restriction: no full face masks (per HAL regulation).

2019

(Per an e-mail from THO, September 6, 2018)

Here are the Theme Days for this year's cruise. Passengers are encouraged to embrace each day's theme as they deem appropriate; theme-styled dress/cosplay is welcomed, but never required:

  • Day 1, (Sat. Mar. 9): Welcome, New Monkeys!
    We'll be holding events specifically designed to make our first-time Sea Monkeys feel welcome and to help them ease into the swing of things. Make a particular effort on this day to seek out new Monkeys and help show them what a great decision they've made by joining us!
  • Day 2, (Sun. Mar. 10): Science!
    Science is awesome, and deserves to have a whole day to celebrate it. (It deserves more than that, actually; but there's only so much we can do on a theme cruise.)
  • Day 3, (Mon. Mar. 11): Cosplay Day
    We have a bunch of terrifically talented cosplayers every year, and today is your day to really pull out all the stops. Sky's the limit; show off your best!
  • Day 6, (Thu. Mar. 14): Formal Night (also Pi Day)
    See notes below.
  • Day 7, (Fri. Mar. 15): Jammies Day
    Everyone's running out of clean clothes anyway, so today is one big day-long celebration of the fact that nobody can make us put on “real” clothes if we don't want to!

Formal Night “Rules”:

  • Formal wear is encouraged, but not required, at dinner.
