Movie lovers, ahoy! TV network Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has brought its annual cruise back for a 2020 sailing.

Updated January 29, 2020

General Info

The 2020 cruise sails from Port Canaveral (Orlando) to Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Castaway Cay (Disney's private island) from October 4 to 10, 2020. This charter will take over the 2,500-passenger Disney Fantasy.

TCM 2020 cruise fares range from $1,990 to $13,090 per person, based on double occupancy, but several cabin categories (including the least and most expensive) have already sold out.

Lineup and Highlights

The lineup for the 2020 TCM cruise has not yet been announced, but it will be hosted by Ben Mankiewicz.

In 2019, headliners included multiple award winner (and Hollywood Walk of Fame star recipient) Cicely Tyson; actress Diane Ladd; classic TV and movie star Mitzi Gaynor; movie critic Leonard Maltin and Randy Haberkamp, managing director of preservation and foundation programs for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Popular hosts of Turner Classic Movies including Alicia Malone, Dave Karger and Eddie Muller joined Mankiewicz onboard.

Expect events such as classic film screenings on the ship's big screens and theaters, panel discussions, trivia, dancing, music and themed activities.

Onboard Vibe

Get ready to be surrounded by fellow film lovers: this ship is going to be all movies, all the time, for the entire cruise. In fact, Disney cruise ships were chosen specifically because their theaters can accommodate high-quality video and audio screenings of films.

From behind-the-scenes stories through interactive panels to special presentations, the experience is described as a "classic movie paradise at sea."

While some movies might be kid-friendly, there are no movie selections specifically for children, so families with young ones might not be able to participate fully.

Who Would Like It

This cruise is meant for classic movie buffs who want to socialize with other movie lovers over panels and behind-the-scenes insight

How to Book

This cruise is run by Sixthman, a theme cruise operator owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.

Onboard Credit: How to Get It, Where to Spend It
Free. Money. Are there two more beautiful words in the English language? While money doesn't grow on trees, increasingly it can be found somewhere else -- on the high seas. Call it an incentive, call it a bonus; whatever you want to call it, onboard credit lets you spend more freely with less guilt. You've paid your cruise fare, and now you can splurge on those enticing extras -- Swedish massage, specialty restaurant, an excursion to snorkel among shipwrecks -- without busting your budget. Not many need convincing as to why onboard credit -- money automatically deposited into your onboard account-- rocks, but finding out exactly how to get it and where you can spend it is a bit trickier. We found eight ways to hit the OBC jackpot and offer even more suggestions on how to burn through it, although you probably have your own ideas already.
What Not to Do at Cruise Ship Disembarkation
It's disembarkation day. You've had an excellent cruise, so don't let a mistake on your very last day drag the entire experience down. From unexpected charges and forgotten items to empty stomachs and overweight suitcases, cruise ship disembarkation can be riddled with pitfalls. But if you avoid these rookie mistakes, you can hold on to your happy cruise buzz for just a little longer. Here are nine things disembarking cruise ship passengers should never do.
7 Places to Cruise Without a Passport
You've decided you want a vacation, but there's a problem -- you don't have a passport. Maybe you've never had the time, money or desire to travel abroad previously, or perhaps your old passport has expired. Whatever the reason, you still have choices. One option is to take a closed-loop cruise -- a round-trip sailing that leaves from and returns to the same U.S. port. For that, you need only a birth certificate and a driver's license (or other acceptable, government-issued photo ID). You can't cruise just anywhere on a closed-loop sailing, but the choices are more interesting than you might expect. Below, we've compiled a list of seven places to visit without a passport, from scenic Alaska to the beachy Caribbean.
