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 you and any guests you bring (Up to 4) on the cruise, tickets to the GACUBash event the day before sailing near the port of departure, loot bags with swag from the event (Pins, cards, etc.) and 24/7 access to the GACUCon Cruise event space, games and equipment. All the other amenities on the cruise can be enjoyed at your leisure.

What is the food situation, is food included for the cruise duration?

Food is included, the ships actually have several types of food options running at pretty much 24/7 which is nice including room service food orders as well. But also inside the ship and once in the ports, there are exclusive restaurants where you do have to pay to eat.

Are there fees or taxes additional to the prices shown?

We've added in all the taxes and fees in those prices, that's all of it except for "gratuities" which is paid after the cruise, like tips for the staff aboard the ship. It's approximately $14.50 a day per guest, since it is a set tip for the cruise you really don't need to tip staff or carry around cash while aboard the ship which is nice.

If I only have 3 people in my room, will a fourth be added in?

Nope, if you book it for 3, then 3 shall be in the room unless you tell us you need to add a 4th at a later date but aside from that the rooms are all yours for you and your guests. No strangers.

Do I need a passport?

It's is easiest if you do have a passport, however since this is a "closed-loop cruise" US citizens have another option if your passport isn't ready.  U.S. citizens on closed-loop cruises (cruises that begin and end at the same port in the U.S.) will be able to enter or depart the country with proof of citizenship, such as a government-issued birth certificate and laminated government issued picture ID, denoting photo, name and date of birth. A U.S. citizen under the age of 16 will be able to present either an original, notarized or certified copy of his or her birth certificate, a Consular Report of Birth Abroad issues by DOS, or Certificate of Naturalization issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

If I don't have a passport how can I get one?

When will early bird prices end?

Early bird will be ending by November but that is $100 per guest ticket for our event. The actual pricing itself for the cruise and monthly payments change near the beginning of each month based on Royal Caribbeans room pricing which sometimes goes up or down and is outside of our control.

Is there a list of activities for the Non-Gamers?

There are so many things to do on the cruise. So for the non-gamers in need of a vacation here are some of the things you can do aboard the ship: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruise-ships/navigator-of-the-seas/things-to-do
Most if not all of those things to do are included with some exceptions like spa time, alcoholic beverages, gambling or other premium activities, though to be honest on a cruise there is so much that is included you really don't need to do any of them unless you absolutely want to.

Does the cruise to any islands or land locations?

Yes! Actually what's really great is the private island we stop at first called Cococay just had some upgrades and we do stop in Nassau Bahamas as well so you get two port stops aside from any time you want to hang out in Miami prior to or after the cruise.
