Required Travel Docs
Carnival Cruise Lines requires guests to provide proper
travel documentation in order to travel.
The documentation is required at embarkation
and throughout the cruise and is the responsibility
of the guest. Due to the heightened level of
security, this policy is being strictly enforced.
Any guest traveling without proper documentation
will be denied boarding the ship and will be under full penalty, and, therefore, will not be offered a refund or a replacement cruise.
The following requirements are for sailings from a United States port to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada/New England, Hawaii, Alaska, Panama Canal and Mexico.
