#First #Gamecruise - Recap of GaCuCon 2017

Frequently Asked Questions
I've never been on a cruise what should I expect?
You should expect one of the more relaxing experiences you've ever had mixed with the productivity of a conference and enjoyment of a game/comic convention. The first day is mostly checking in, enjoying some culinary delights and exploring the ship. We will make sure to properly orient you to the ships activities, amenities and GaCuCon features exclusively for GaCuCon guests.
What do I get included with my GaCuCon cruise ticket?
A room for two on the cruise, ticket to the GaCuCon land expo, loot bags on the ship in your room from all exhibitors, access to the GaCuCon Cruise guest only events and all the other amenities on the cruise at your leisure.
Do I need a passport?

Yes! This cruise leaves US Waters so all passengers are required to have their passports to board the ship. Make sure your passport is valid and if you need to renew it or get a passport as a US citizen please visit this site - https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html

If I don't have a passport how can I get one?
Please visit this site - https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html Unfortunately we cannot get you on the ship without a valid passport so we really stress you handle this as soon as possible to prevent issues. That said, we are unable to refund you on the day of the cruise if you cannot board due to your passport since the room is paid for and cannot be resold in time. So please make sure your passport is ready for GaCuCon 2018!
Are kids allowed?
Of course as long as you are their legal guardian and over 25 years old! So you are more than welcome to bring the family to GaCuCon and enjoy the event.
Is there an age limit for cruise passengers?
Guests are required to be 21 years old (on embarkation day) to travel. Guests under the age of 21 must be accompanied in the same stateroom by a parent or guardian 25 or older.
Can I reserve groups of rooms to be with my friends?
It is possible, let us know in the comment box that you wish to have multiple rooms together and we will see if there is availability to make it happen.
Can I reserve a room just for myself?
Yes you can, however here are the Carnival Cruise Lines terms and fees as rooms are intended for a minimum of two guests. Single Occupancy Reservation will require 200% of the per person deposit. The total deposit amount will never exceed the cruise fare.
Where/ how can I reserve a room on my own?
Click this link http://bit.ly/2uNB5ao and go to the Carnival Cruise website to buy the room yourself. Remember you will still need to get the 1 Player ticket with us.
Are there group discounts?
If you plan on booking more than 5 rooms let us know and we will see what discount we can offer since it fluctuates based on the ship and time of year.
