What are Royal Caribbean’s Passport Requirements

A valid passport is a requirement for all international sailings and air travel. You need enough blank visa pages within the passport for visa stamps. Royal Caribbean recommend that your passport expiry date not occur within six (6) months following the end of your cruise.

The ship will collect your passport to speed the clearance formalities at each port of call, so Royal Caribbean suggest you bring a few photocopies of your passport's personal information page, including the picture, and that you carry one of these photocopies with you each time you leave the ship.

What if my last name is different to my children’s last name?

Should the last names of the parent and minor child travelling with them differ, the parent is required to present the child's valid passport and visa (if required) and the child's birth certificate (original, a notarised copy or a certified copy). The name of the parent(s) and the child must be linked through legal documentation.

What if I am a Non Parent/legal guardian travelling with minors aged 17 years and under?

Adults who are not the parent or legal guardian of any minor child travelling with them are required to present the child's valid passport and visa or the child's birth certificate (original, a notarised copy or a certified copy) and an original notarised letter signed by at least one of the child's parents.

This original notarised letter signed by the child's parent(s), needs to outline authorisation of the adult to take the child on the specific cruise, supervise the child and allow emergency medical treatment to be administered. If a non-parent adult is a legal guardian, the adult must present a certified certificate of guardianship with respect to the child.

I have different surnames (last names) on several documents - is this OK?

If a woman has several surnames on different documents such as birth certificate and driving licence, then she must bridge the difference with other documents, such as, a marriage licence and/or divorce paper. The additional bridging documents must be the original or a certified or notarised copy.

What Visas will I need?

You will need to contact the Embassy (Consular Services) of each country on your sailing itinerary for specific visa requirements, information, forms and fees for your nationality. More information can be found here.

What about inoculations and general health?

All guests must ensure that they are medically and physically fit for travel. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide guidelines as to which vaccinations are required in each country. In many cases inoculations are recommended but in some circumstances, they are required. Royal Caribbean recommend that you check with your GP for guidance.

Do I need to purchase travel insurance?

Yes. It is highly recommended all guests take out appropriate travel insurance policies once a reservation has been made.

Please note Australian Medicare, New Zealand ACC and private health insurance will not cover you for any medical costs or emergency evacuations on board, even on domestic cruises. Insurance policies may also protect your possessions on board; provide cancellation cover if certain circumstances cause you to miss the cruise or a pre-paid tour; and provide other forms of protection. It is your responsibility to select the most appropriate policy from an insurance provider.

Can I cruise with Royal Caribbean if I am pregnant?

Pregnant guests are welcome but cannot be entering, or have entered, the 24th week of pregnancy on the first day of their planned cruise or cruise tour. Guests will be required to fill out a Public Health Questionnaire at the pier attesting they have not entered the 24th week. Please inform your Global Journeys Cruise Advisor if you will be pregnant at the time of travel.

Does Royal Caribbean supply oxygen on board the ship?

If you are dependent on oxygen or require oxygen therapy, you must supply your own oxygen, and meet certain requirements prior to boarding. Please let your Cruise Advisor know your needs when you make your booking and let them know quantity, type and delivery schedule. All types of oxygen are permitted on board. Each ship has a different storage policy; however you will be able to keep some or all of your cylinders in the stateroom.

What if I suffer seasickness? Should I cruise?

For any medical advice, please consult your doctor prior to boarding. Your location on board and proximity to the water can help reduce the effects of seasickness. The lower you are to the water line, and the closer you are to the centre of the ship, the less movement you will experience. When looking out at the water, keep your sight on the horizon line.

Before you leave
Where do I find my cruise reservation documents?

You will receive electronic cruise documents (eDocs) from 45 days prior to sailing once your reservation is finalised and paid in full. Once your cruise documents become available, you can access them through your reservation dashboard in your Guest Account. Details will be provided by your Global Journeys Cruise Advisor.

When can I check-in for my Royal Caribbean cruise?

Online check-in opens 90 days prior to sailing and closes 3 days prior to the sail date. Once the full balance on your booking has been received, you will be able to log into Royal Caribbean's Online Check In and print your SetSail Pass. Details on how and when to do this will provided by your Global Journeys Cruise Advisor.

What is the benefit of Royal Caribbean's online check-in process?

Completing your check-in online for all the guests in your booking will speed up your boarding time. Guests who do not complete online check-in will be required to check-in manually at the pier, which can take a little more time.

I am having trouble completing the online check-in, can I call you to complete it for me?

We are unable to complete the check-in for you, as you are required to read and accept terms and conditions. You’re welcome to contact your Global Journeys Cruise Advisor and we can provide troubleshooting assistance if needed.

Your luggage will be delivered to your stateroom on the first evening of the cruise. We suggest that you pack all your medications in your carry-on luggage.

We advise that you pack at least three days of extra medication in the event of an unexpected change in the itinerary of the voyage. Remember to pack an adapter to suit the US and European electrical power points. Also consider a change of clothes in your carry-on luggage in case your luggage doesn’t arrive before dinner
