We understand that your vacation can be a yearlong investment, but can be ruined in a second. While you can't prevent an unexpected storm from closing the airport, you can do something to help cover your travel investment - and that's to purchase travel insurance.
CruiseDeals.com recommends Allianz plans - they offer insurance designed just for travelers. They can provide coverage for many of the things that can go wrong before, during and after your trip. Travel mishaps occur every day...why not be prepared if one happens to you.
Due to heightened security for travelers out of and into the United
States, you must check that you have the proper documentation for travel abroad. We
strongly recommend that you secure a passport that is valid for six (6) or more months
after your departure date.
That said, many cruises that originate and return to the U.S. only require a certified copy of your birth certificate and a photo ID from a recognized issuing agency, such as the Federal Government or your state Driver's License Bureau. However, we still suggest that a Passport is your very best option, especially should you need to return to the U.S. via air in the event of an emergency.
For one, you certainly don't want to spend your first hours on the ship standing in a long line at the shore excursions desk, hoping that the ones you want aren't already sold out!
You'd much rather unpack, check out the ship and hit the pool deck or a lounge early knowing all your excursions are already taken care of. Relax knowing that everything you want to do is paid for and waiting for you upon arrival!
Now you can purchase your excursions directly from our exclusive, preferred provider Shore Excursions Group, where each and every Shore Excursion is licensed, insured and chosen personally by their expert travel staff.Start Exploring TODAY
After you've made your final payment for your cruise, you are requested to go online to submit all your travel documentation as well as secure your boarding passes. This will save you quite a bit of time at check-in when you arrive at the pier. You can also use this time to pre-arrange some of the many options that cruises offer, such as reservations at the specialty dining venues, spa appointments, and show tickets, just to name a few. It also helps you know that you're prepared to show the appropriate travel documents at arrival to avoid any surprises at the pier. Visit our Online Check-in and Cruise Line Info Directory and then select the cruise line on which you'll be sailing.
