All guests must be on board BY 3:30pm! The gangway closes at 4:00 pm sharp after which NO ONE may board. Miami airport is approximately 30-45 minutes from Port of Miami. Plan accordingly!

Passports are not required for U.S. citizens, but are strongly recommended. If you choose not to obtain a passport, you MUST have an original, raised-seal, state-issued (not hospital issued) birth certificate AND a driver’s license with you. The two documents must have matching names. If for some reason the names do not match (marriage, etc.), you will need a copy of a legal document(s) explaining why (marriage certificate, etc.).


Keep identification and cruise documents handy. Put them in your carry-on bag. Do not pack them in your luggage. You will need to produce these documents several times before boarding the ship.

Assist security. Heightened security measures at the Port help to ensure your safety. Please cooperate with security personnel to expedite boarding.

Tag your luggage. Complete and attach the luggage tags provided when you complete your online check-in. If you don’t have luggage tags, Porters at the cruise terminal can provide additional tags.

Carry valuables. Carry on any valuables, breakables, personal items and medications, along with your photo ID and cruise documents.

Follow signs. Digital directional signs with ship names and terminal assignments are updated daily.
