CRUISE TRAVEL FOR U.S CITIZENS
Carnival highly recommends that all guests travel with a passport (valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel). This will enhance the debarkation experience as delays may be expected upon return to the United States for those without one. Additionally, this will enable guests to fly from the U.S. to meet their ship at a foreign port should they miss their scheduled port of embarkation and allow guests that must disembark the ship before their cruise ends due to an emergency to fly back to the U.S without significant delays and complications.
