What is TCM Classic Cruise 2013?
Join TCM hosts Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz for our third TCM Classic Cruise! This year we sail aboard the Disney Magic for five nights—watching films, seeing the actors and talent who made them, hearing stories from behind the scenes, enjoying special panels and sharing it all with other passionate movie fans. With multiple TCM-themed daily events and activities, you’re bound to make new friends as you savor this unique vacation experience. It’s classic movie paradise at sea.
We’ll sail from Miami aboard the Disney Magic, December 8 - 13, 2013, with stops in Nassau and Disney’s private island Castaway Cay. Voted the #1 Cruise Ship in the 2013 Condé Nast Travelers Readers Poll, the Disney Magic offers world-class dining, a luxurious Spa & Salon and concierge service to make your trip unforgettable. The ship’s spectacular style and grace bringing you back to the golden age of travel, and the state-of-the-art theaters take you back to Hollywood’s golden age through unparalleled projection, excellent site lines, surround sound and theater seating.
And don't forget, you'll also visit two beautiful islands! Feel the sand in your toes and sun on your shoulders as we make stops in Nassau, Bahamas and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. In Nassau, guests will experience Old World colonial charm and island recreation at this important commercial and cultural center in the tropics. Castaway Cay is Disney's private port-of-call paradise, offering a wide array of tropical leisure activities, such as snorkeling, boating, swimming and sunbathing.
We're thrilled to bring you this unique classic film vacation, and can't wait to see you on board!

How is the booking order determined during the pre-sale?
Alumni from prior TCM Classic Cruise sailings will be given the first chance to book. This group was automatically assigned and emailed an Earliest Booking Time. Earliest Booking Times are assigned in order, sorted by number of TCM Classic Cruise sailings, most recent year, then by order of booking for their most recent TCM Classic Cruise. Note that Earliest Booking Times will be spread throughout several days so that we may provide you the best possible guest service experience as you make your reservation. You will have FEWER people in front of you this year, even if you have to wait longer for your Earliest Booking Time to become active.
Guests from the TCM Classic Cruise January 2013 sailing who cancelled or were on the Waiting List will be given a chance to book next. This group must register for the pre-sale and booking order is determined by the date you booked your cancelled 2013 reservation or waiting list entry.
New TCM Classic Cruise guests who register for the pre-sale are the final group to be included. This group is randomized before earliest booking times are assigned. Note that there will be multiple groups of new guests - those who register before the initial deadline and those who join after.
Once the pre-sale ends, the general public will be able to book. The public on-sale date for TCM Classic Cruise 2013 is June 3.

How do I let someone add me to their reservation?

Once you save it, they'll appear in Your Approved Lead Passengers list. You're all set, the lead passenger can now add you as a guest in their cabin!
What is a Sixthman Username, and how do I create one?
