Come to kickball in Jamaica. Sleepers vs. Ragers. Be a Rager. You will make lots of new friends. LOTS.

yeeeeeessssssss trust us we're your friends. Had a first timer last year who kept saying to me "how insane this is" and that was only the first day before we had even heard a single note of music!!!!!! and another who described it as a life changer.

Make sure you have plenty of room on your credit card to put down for your drink tickets and incidentals when you get onboard.

Bring some ginger pills or wristbands, or ear tabs for nausea, as the seas can and do get rough from time-to-time.

Plan on some rainy or windy and cold nights on the pool deck. (pants/sweatshirt recommended)

If it looks like peas and carrots on your pizza, it is... choose something else.

Never eat the frozen french fry on your salads.

The upcharge restaurants are worth a try, and easy to get a reservation on port evenings.

Make sure you have two different kinds of flip-flops. (Inevitably, one pair will be too slippery to wear on the pool deck and on the shiny floors.)

Meet JamCruisers before the boat sails. You'll need their expert advice along the way.

I got a really good piece of advice last year. Bring tennis balls to roll out your feet at night. You will likely walk an average of 20 miles a day. Bring a pedometer. It makes you feel really accomplished by the end. :)

Just wanted to check in and say hi. I booked a room yesterday for me and wife. We'll be in 12147 (I wanted to do the Master's Camp thing). Looking forward to meeting a lot of new friends and having a blast!

I couldn't agree more! The most important thing you can bring is a pair of balls.
With regards to costumes, start working on them at least 2 months in advance. Right after Halloween is a great time to get deals on unused/used costumes, so plan ahead. You WILL feel left out if you don't try!
Welcome to the best party ever imagined! Enjoy your stay!
