Vision of the Seas Passport Requirements

All Vision of the Seas passengers must carry a valid and appropriate Passport.

US Citizens embarking on closed-loop cruises, (which begin and end at the same U.S. port), and who go on to destinations in Canada, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Mexico, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, or Bermuda may re-enter the United States using other forms of proof of citizenship. Accepted proof of citizenship documents include an original government issued the birth certificate or a certified copy, and a government issued picture IDs such as a driver’s license, a Certificate of Naturalization, or a Consular Report of Born Abroad Certificate. Baptismal records and hospital-issue certificates are not accepted.

Our Recommendation

We strongly recommend all guests travel with a valid passport during the cruise. This will help guests in the event they must fly out of the United States to join their cruise ship in the event that should they miss the scheduled embarkation; those entering the U.S. at the end of a cruise; guests who must fly to the U.S. before the cruise ends, due to personal emergencies, missing a ship departure, non-voluntary debarkation from a ship resulting from misconduct, or any other reason.

Guests who must fly to the U.S. before the end of their cruise are likely to experience complications and long delays resulting from unexpected booking requirements for airline tickets to re-enter the U.S. if they have no valid U.S. passport.
