Passport & Visa Information
A passport is a U.S. citizen’s key to international travel. Due to a surge in passport applications, you should apply several months in advance, especially if you need visas for your foreign destinations. Travelers should ensure their passport is valid at least six months after returning home and has two or more blank pages, or some countries may not let them enter. Note that passports for children under 16 are valid for five years and adult passports for ten years, so check expiration dates carefully. We recommend all cruise ship passengers have their passports with them in case of emergency, even if not required.
