US Citizens are encouraged to travel with a valid Passport, although a valid Driver License and Original Birth Certificate (with a raised seal) will suffice.
Non-US Citizens are required to have a valid Passport.
Visas are not required for US Citizens, but may be required of other nationalities. You can check the visa requirements HERE.
Guests from countries that require a visas MUST obtain a valid visa before leaving home. Laws do not allow a guest who requires a visa to board the ship without required visa(s). SPECIAL NOTE: Even if you’re told you won’t need a visa if you plan to stay on the ship, this is NOT TRUE. If a visa is required of your nationality, you MUST have a visa even if you plan to stay on the ship.
United States Permanent Residents who possess an Alien Registration Card (Green Card) do NOT require a visa.
These travel documentation requirements are government regulations and policies. They are subject to change without notice. It is the sole responsibility of each guest to identify and obtain all required travel documents and have them available when necessary. These appropriate valid travel documents (such as passports and visas) are required for boarding, entry into other countries, and reentry into the United States.
We strongly recommend that all guests travel with a passport that’s valid for at least six (6) months beyond the end of their cruise. This greatly assists guests who may need to fly out of the United States to meet their ship at the next available port should they miss their scheduled embarkation in a U.S. port; guests entering the U.S. at the end of their cruise; and guests needing to fly to the U.S. before their cruise ends, because of medical, family, personal, or business emergencies, missing a ship’s departure from a port of call, involuntary disembarkation from a ship due to misconduct, or other reasons.
The name on your VACAYA reservation must match the name on your passport or other identification documents.
Guests who do not possess the proper documentation may be prevented from boarding the ship.
Unfortunately, no refunds will be given to individuals who are denied boarding due to improper documentation.
