What is TCM Classic Cruise 2016?
Join TCM hosts, special guests and fellow movie lovers for the sixth TCM Classic Cruise, November 12-19, 2016! We’ll set sail aboard the majestic Disney Fantasy for seven nights—watching films, speaking with the actors and talent who made them, hearing stories from behind the scenes, enjoying special presentations and sharing the experience 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 a classic movie paradise at sea.
Voted the #1 Large Ship Line in the 2015 Condé Nast Traveler Readers Poll, the Disney Fantasy offers modern technological advancements alongside Art Nouveau allure to create a masterpiece of design and engineering. The newest ship to the Disney fleet features staterooms designed to ensure the ultimate in comfort and relaxation for guests of all ages.
And the ports of call are just as magical. Feel the sand between your toes and the sun on your shoulders as we sail from Port Canaveral with stops in San Juan, St. Maarten and Disney’s Castaway Cay. The most populous city in Puerto Rico, San Juan offers a rich history as well as incredible natural attractions. In St. Maarten, visitors have a chance to experience two rich cultures (France and the Netherlands) as well as the island’s host of idyllic recreational and relaxation opportunities. Castaway Cay is Disney's private island paradise, offering beautiful beaches and a wide array of tropical leisure activities.
We're thrilled to bring you this unique classic movie lovers vacation, and can't wait to see you on board!
What proof of citizenship do I need to bring?
In order to board the ship, all guests are required to provide proper travel documentation. Guests unable to provide proof of citizenship will not be permitted to sail.
Sixthman highly recommends all guests travel with a passport (valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel). Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking cruises that begin & end in the same U.S. port, travelling with a passport enhances your disembarkation experience, as delays may be expected upon your return to the U.S. if you do not have one. Additionally, passports make it easier for you to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port should you miss your scheduled port of embarkation, or need to fly back to the U.S. for emergency reasons.
The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) allows U.S. citizens (including children) sailing on cruises that begin and end in the same U.S. port to travel with one of the following WHTI compliant document:
- Valid U.S. Passport
- Original or suitable quality copy of a State Issued Birth Certificate
- Certificate of Naturalization
- Passport Card
- Enhanced Driver's License (EDL)
- Trusted Traveler Program Membership Card, e.g., Nexus Card, Sentri Card or Fast Card
A government-issued photo ID is also required for all guests, including children 16 and over. For more information, a complete list of WHTI-compliant documents or to obtain a passport application, visit www.travel.state.gov.
For more information or to obtain a passport application, visit www.travel.state.gov.
If you are not a US Citizen, please call US Immigrations at 1-800-375-5283 to be sure your identification will be satisfactory.
Please note that the name on your ticket (First and Last Names, Middle names are not required) must match the name on your passport or you will need to provide an original copy of proof of change of name (marriage license, etc).
These are recommendations based on the current U.S. government policy. (This information could be updated without notice.)

What information will I need to book my stateroom?

Sixthman Username: You'll need to login with (or create) a Sixthman Username to book. If you've traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the TCM Classic Cruise 2016 Pre-Sale you have a username. You can recover forgotten login credentials here, or contact us or try our live chat for immediate assistance. If you or a guest needs a Sixthman Username you can create one while booking.
Guest Permissions: If you were a Lead Passenger on a prior event and are sailing with the same guests, your guests will be in a dropdown list for you to add to your stateroom. If you're sailing with someone who has a Sixthman Username but has NOT sailed with you previously, have your guests login to their Sixthman profile and add your username to their 'Approved Lead Passengers' list in the 'Guest Permissions' section. They'll then be on the dropdown list for you while booking.Naming Guests: You can add your guests later but fees may apply. See "Can I make changes to my reservation?" here for more details. You are obligated for the full cruise fare of the occupancy level you select during the reservation process even if you do not add guests to fill your entire cabin. If you wish to add guests beyond the capacity of the occupancy level you select during the reservation process you may do so based on availability for the additional cruise fare associated with the transaction.
Multiple Credit Card Payments: If you are paying with multiple credit cards, you will need all of the credit card numbers (with expiration date and card verification number) as well as the name and billing addresses for each card.
How do I make a reservation?
Placing a reservation is easy! You can book a cabin online at TCMcruise.com/booknow, or over the phone by calling 877-223-7030.
PLEASE NOTE! Lead Passengers, if you or your guest(s) needs a Sixthman Username you can create one while booking. If you and your guest have Sixthman Usernames, have your guest add you as an Approved Lead Passenger in their account. You'll then see your guest in Your Authorized Guests list and you'll be able to add them as a guest in your cabin while booking!
Anyone who has traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the TCM Classic Cruise 2016 Pre-Sale has a username and will not need to create one. If you don't know your login credentials, you can recover them here.
How will the TCM Classic Cruise onboard the Disney Fantasy be different from a traditional Disney Cruise Line experience?
This is the TCM Classic Cruise with all of the activities (film screenings, panel discussions, trivia, dancing, music and themed activities) that you've come to expect on a TCM Classic Cruise. We have chosen the Disney Fantasy as our host ship as Disney Cruise Line is world-renowned for their hospitality, accommodations, service and styling. Plus, the ship’s venues, technical equipment and technical crew are among the best available for the type of experience that TCM provides.
Most Disney themed entertainment will be suspended for the TCM Cruise.
How does automatic billing work?
Enroll in automatic billing, and relax knowing that your future payments will be made automatically. When you book, we'll calculate an even monthly payment plan and you'll choose the day of the month you want your payments to be processed. It's that easy! Be sure to read the Automatic Billing FAQs for the answers to all your questions.
How do I let someone add me to their reservation?
To let someone add you to their reservation, you'll need to have a Sixthman Username and add your lead passenger to Your Approved Lead Passengers list. Create a Sixthman profile here, or login to your existing profile. Then, in the Guest Permissions section, click the "Add New Lead Passenger" button and enter your lead passenger's username. 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?
Each guest needs a Sixthman Username to create, manage or be added to a reservation. Click here to create your Sixthman Username. Your username should be something that is easy for you to remember such as your name or nickname.
If you have traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the TCM Classic Cruise 2016 Pre-Sale, you have a username and will not need to create one. If you don't know your username, you can recover it here. You can also contact us and we will be happy to look it up for you (try our live chat feature or contact us).
Use your Sixthman Username to login throughout the year to update your personal information, make payments, add guests, or make changes to your reservation. To manage your reservation, sign in using your Sixthman Username here.
How does travel insurance work?
Sixthman offers you a leading travel insurance plan through our partnership with Travel Insured International. Travel Insured specializes in providing quality coverage and superior customer care and claim service to our Sixthman guests. When you add our plan to your trip, you protect yourself from your policy's effective date through your return home. Your prepaid trip costs are protected against Trip Cancellation or Interruption due to an unforeseen accident or illness to you, your traveling companion or a family member. You also receive Emergency Medical Protection, Baggage Protection, Travel Accident Protection and Worldwide Emergency Travel Assistance available 24/7 during your trip.
Remember that sometimes unwelcome events occur to disrupt great trips:
- You are protected, up to full trip cost, if bad weather causes your common carrier to cease operating for 24 hours or more.
- Illness or injury to you or a traveling companion or immediate family member causes you to cancel or interrupt your trip.
- Missed Connection coverage can pay your expenses (up to $500) to rejoin the cruise or tour when you miss the departure due to a three-hour or more flight delay.
- Emergency Medical Expense covers you if you need treatment in a foreign hospital for a sudden illness or accident. We guarantee your admission!
- Trip Cancellation can cover terrorist events, a job layoff (if employed for 1 or more year) or jury duty.*
- Assistance will be there if you lose medications or a passport, or need help canceling lost credit cards.
This coverage must be purchased before your final payment due date. Coverage for all benefits except trip cancellation will begin on the departure date. The trip cancellation benefit will begin at 12:01 AM on the day after Travel Insured receives your application. For pre-existing conditions to be covered you need to purchase Insurance within 21 days of your deposit (other restrictions apply).
Travel Insured also offers Cancel For Any Reason 50% Protection. The Cancel for Any Reason option is only available when specifically requested on the original application and the appropriate premium has been paid. The Cancel For Any Reason benefit must be purchased within 21 days of your initial trip deposit. This benefit allows the insured to receive a refund of up to 50% of covered trip costs on reservations cancelled up to 48 hours prior to departure for any reason outside of the covered circumstances.
This is a summary only containing highlights of the plan. Download an Insurance PDF for complete terms, conditions and exclusions that apply. Please Note: Residents of Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Texas and Washington have separate Certificates of Insurance in compliance with state requirements.
We know you might have questions about what is and is not covered so we encourage you to read the Insurance PDF or call Travel Insured at 1-866-684-0218 and specify you are calling about Sixthman Travel Protection.
What if I want to book a single occupancy stateroom?
Guests traveling by themselves in their own cabin are responsible for the double-occupancy rate of the stateroom. Single occupancy staterooms will be charged Taxes and Fees for only one guest, and will receive a discount of $250.00 off the second cruise fare.
If you place your single occupancy reservation online please contact us upon completion so we can add the single occupancy discount.
Note: Due to the stateroom configuration on the Disney Fantasy we are not able to offer a roommate match program this year.
