Q

What completed travel documents do I need to board the ship? Are there other important requirements to prepare for boarding day?

A

As policies continue to evolve with the latest public health guidance, required documents are subject to change at any time. Travel document requirements vary based on your country of citizenship and your port of departure. Be sure to check on your own country’s departure and re-entry requirements before traveling. Booked guests will be advised of the latest requirements for their port of departure before sailing.

 

For Cruises Departing from U.S. Homeports

You will need to have the following documents when you arrive to board the ship.

Note: Guests sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, have required documents in addition to those listed below. To learn more, visit Getting Ready to Cruise from San Juan.

  • A Passport Book or Passport Card, valid for at least six months after your cruise, is strongly recommended. If you do not have a Passport, you may present a state-certified U.S. Birth Certificate (not a "baby feet" hospital certificate or baptismal paper). Guests age 16 and older that present a Birth Certificate will also need to provide a valid Driver's License or picture ID issued by the government.
  • COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card that shows you received the final dose of your vaccine at least 14 days before sailing. This is required for all guests age 12 and up. Kids age 5 to 11 who have been vaccinated may present proof of full vaccination and follow the protocols for vaccinated guests. Read more at the main vaccination requirement FAQ.
  • COVID-19 Test Result: All guests age 2 and older — including those who have been vaccinated — will need to present a printed copy of their negative COVID-19 result. Vaccinated guests must take this test (antigen or PCR test accepted) no more than 2 days before boarding day. Kids age 5 to 11 who have been vaccinated may present proof of full vaccination and follow the testing protocols for vaccinated guests. Unvaccinated kids must take this test no more than 3 days before boarding day. Kids departing before December 17, 2021 can show a PCR or antigen test result; guests departing after December 17, 2021 must show a PCR test result only.
