WHO MAY SAIL?

Please make sure that everyone in your stateroom is eligible to sail.

1.  Pregnant guests who will enter the 24th week of estimated fetal gestational age at any time during the cruise will not be allowed to sail.  A pregnant guest who will have not entered the 24th week of estimated fetal gestational age at any time during the cruise, must submit, prior to departure, a form from her attending physician certifying that her gestational status is in accordance with this policy, and that the expecting mother is fit to sail. Because the safety of the pregnant mother and unborn child is our number one concern, Royal Caribbean will not accept any agreement or recommendation from the guest and/or her physician that the policy be waived.  

2.  Adults aged twenty-one or older may sail. The cruise line shall refuse boarding to any guest under the age of twenty-one unless the guest is:

a. traveling with a parent or guardian in an accompanying stateroom

b. traveling in the same stateroom with their spouse (legally married couples must present an official marriage license prior to or on embarkation day)

Guests not conforming to these policies will be denied boarding and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued.  Sorry, there are NO EXCEPTIONS to these policies.

WHAT KIND OF TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION WILL I NEED?

Proper travel documentation is required at embarkation and throughout the cruise and is the responsibility of the guest.  Any guest traveling without proper documentation will not be allowed to board the vessel, and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued.

U.S. citizens are encouraged to show a U.S. passport.  A PASSPORT is the easiest form of ID and is recommended.  If you do not have a passport, you should be prepared to provide a valid government-issued photo ID (i.e. Driver’s License) and proof of U.S. citizenship in the form of a government-issued (not hospital-issued) U.S. birth certificate. 

It is important that guest names on travel documents be identical to those on the cruise booking.  Otherwise, proof of name change (i.e. a marriage license) AND a valid driver’s license or government-issued photo ID must be presented.

If you would like to order a passport or just renew one, there is still time.

WHAT ABOUT SHORE EXCURSIONS ?

If you would like to purchase a shore excursion through Royal Caribbean, you may do so at the Shore Excursions desk on board the ship; however, due to some excursions having limited availability, we recommend that you reserve your excursions online prior to the cruise. To search for an excursion online, you will need to know the name of the ship  and your reservation number.  All questions regarding excursions should be directed to Royal Caribbean.

Please remember to allow yourself enough time to get back to the ship before the "All Aboard" call.  The ship will remain on Eastern time throughout the sailing.  It is best not to rely on your cell phone or other electronic device for the time.  The ship will not wait for late guests.

WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

Casual attire is the order of the day, both on board and ashore.  During the daytime, most anything goes since we know you're probably headed to the pool or out for a fun Shore Excursion.  Casual shorts, jeans, tops, and sundresses are welcome everywhere. 

Resort casual dress gets you into every venue at night, too. Some people like to add a jacket, or when celebrating a special occasion, get all decked out. This, too, is welcome everywhere. Some people prefer nice jeans. They're welcome in many of the restaurants as well, but not in all.

Since you may opt to check your luggage with the porters the night before we return home, don't forget to bring an overnight bag packed with a change of clothes, prescriptions, and other must-have items.
