SEACruises strongly recommends that all guests
travel with a passport that is valid for at least
six (6) months beyond the end of their cruise. This
greatly assists guests who may need to fly out of
the United States to meet their ship at the next
available port should they miss their scheduled
embarkation in a U.S. port; guests entering the
U.S. at the end of their cruise; and guests needing
to fly to the U.S. before their cruise ends, because
of medical, family, personal or business emergencies,
missing a ship's departure from a port of call,
involuntary disembarkation from a ship due to misconduct,
or other reasons.
Guests who need to fly to the United States before
their cruise ends will likely experience significant
delays and complications related to booking airline
tickets and entering the United States if they do
not have a valid U.S. passport with them.
U.S. citizens taking "closed-loop" cruises
are not required to have a passport, but will need
proof of citizenship such as an original or certified
copy of a birth certificate, a certificate of naturalization,
a passport card, an enhanced driver's license (EDL)
as well as a government-issued photo ID. Children
are also required to bring proof of citizenship,
and if 16 and over, a photo ID is also required.
If a cruise begins and ends in different U.S. ports
or begins and ends in a foreign port (such as our
Alaska cruises and Hawaii cruises) a valid passport
or other recognized WHTI-compliant document is required.
A valid passport is required if you are traveling
on any of our Europe cruises.
there is an emergency during the cruise and you
need to fly back to the U.S. you will NOT be allowed
to board an airplane without a valid passport. That
is why it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This rule may change at any time. For up to date
information please see: http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html
name on your passport MUST match the name on the
cruise line manifest given to us at the time you
