1st timer here. VERY EXCITED! Chased the Dead for many years, went to the Sunsplash in Mo Bay in '88, love the live music scene. I do have a few questions. Do the shows "sell out?" I've been dyin'to see Galactic for many years and would hate to miss the show. Does teh music last all night. At The Sunsplash, I have very fond memories of music from 6pm til 11 am the next day. Days don't get much better than waking up to Gregory Isaacs & Sly & Robbie! How many shows run at once and can you move from show to show? Many more questions but I'll just start with these few. Thanks in advance.

My wife and I will be embarking on our 5th JC in a row and we have yet to miss a show because of crowd capacity. There are other shows going on throughout the ship in several venues. Galactic will have a pool deck set and then they usually close out the Theater on the final night. I have seen the Jam Room go until Sunrise more than once so yeah, the music does last all night! Welcome aboard! Jam Cruise is a life changing experience!

Welcome to the Best time you will have!!!.

As for moving between different shows on the ship it is very easy and you are never more than 2 min from more music. Well it usually takes about 10 as you always stop and talk to your 3,000 closest friends :shock:

On days at sea the music starts at 11am and the jam room until 5-6 ish the next day with the disco closing at 6. Then head up to the pool deck and you just might find Zach Deputy sitting on the pool deck with a guitar giving an impromptu show for 15 people.

Don't worry you will find enough music and fun :D :D :D :D

There are links to past years' schedules in the FAQ Thread, to give you an idea of the number of venues, set overlaps, and how late/early things run. Here's last year's schedule. We are on a new ship this year though, so the venues will be different.

oh ya and there are no 'tickets' and you can move among and between shows and all around the ship as much as you want whenever you want. You could even watch Galatic's pool deck set from a hot tub :D Prepare to be blown away, and love every second of it :DANCE: welcome aboard!

You may live somewhere where it's legal, however, it's not legal in Florida. To get on the boat, you go through customs/security, just like at the airport. Also, this is a public forum. You should consider that when you type things.

How strict are they on smoking on the Boat? Do many people do it openly? Not saying I'm smuggling anything...

Just a question that will make my decision on this.

THIS....Also, this is a public forum. You should consider that when you type things. Find someone who has been on the boat at a show, I see someone I know from the boat at every show I go to.

If this is the question that will make your decision, then you should stay off my ship! :P We're here for the MUSIC and the jamily/family and the tropical sunshine and Caribbean waters and fun activities and the theme night dress up parties and the LOVE. If, while experiencing all of these amazing things your thoughts are focused on 'can I light up a joint' or 'this sucks but would be awesome if I could smoke' then you should not be on this ship. IMHO. YMMV. How many times do people have to say 'this is a public forum' ? Don't ask don't tell is the policy here. If you feel you MUST have an answer then find someone who has been on the cruise and ask them personally :roll: I dont mean to rant, but really I am just offended that this would be a decision point for someone. If you are concerned about this for a truly medical reason, then please see the part of the T&Cs that I posted previously regarding Medical conditions and talk to C9 about it.
