Just wanted to say hello! This will be me and my wife’s first JC. We have watched in awe for years…and this year we couldn’t stand it any longer – we had to join in!

I am not sure what is more exciting, the anticipation of being on the boat with ya’ll, or planning all of these ridiculous theme nights! Zebras, 80s, oh my! My motto is everything green is great!

Looking forward to meeting you all and dancing for 5 days straight! :DANCE:

I'm a first timer, and I am so excited to get on the boat. I can't believe I'm actually going. Looking forward to meeting new friends and lots of great music. Not so sure about the costumes and theme nights, but I guess it will be more fun to participate, so I will give it a shot, but I'm definitely built for comfort and not for speed, so I'm a little stressed about trying to keep up with you crazy kids

Don't stress, no stress! In or out of costume, you are still participating, so just do what makes you feel good. :) See ya on the ship. :DANCE:

Don't worry, I'm a very low stress person, so I guess I should add in context, my version of stress is more of at a loss for what to throw together to make a costume, but there is little to no actual stress involved ;)

Good Advice Tai.
I'm not much for dressing up for anything anymore. Perhaps I'm just old, but I'll take pleasure in seeing what everyone does and compliment them all.
As this is our first JC, maybe we'll see the error in our ways and do better next time.
For now, it will be a great trip.....and a learning experience and a massive fucking party.

Cheers

This is my 2nd JC & I will say I wasn't totally prepared for the costume & theme nights. Some of our Jam-family really get into it & go all out!! So that being said, the best thing about JC is you don't "have" to do anything. Just be yourselves, enjoy the sights, music & fun & you'll have a ball!! I've got some small contributions to add to theme nights this year....either way it's a funked up FANTASTIC experience! Welcome aboard! We're all glad to have you!! Woohoo!!!
