The following are tips to help you prepare for your cruise:
Here are some useful tips on passports we thought were helpful.
• As of June 1, 2009 you need a passport for air, land and sea travel to and from the Caribbean, The Bahamas, Bermuda, and Central and South America. Basically everywhere including the United States if you are from Canada.
• If you don’t have one – it takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months to get one. If you go right to the passport office it will take approx. 2 weeks to receive it. If you mail it in it will take up to 3 months.
• It’s a good idea to photocopy the front page of your passport and carry an extra passport photo of yourself. Keep this separate from your passport. If your passport is stolen or lost you will have everything you need for a new one.
• Always keep your passport in a safe place. On your person when moving around and in a hotel safe when you are at the hotel.
