Due to new U.S. Department of Homeland Security regulations for cruises departing
from U.S. ports, all cruise lines are now required to submit a final departure manifest
at least 60 minutes prior to departure. As a result of this new regulation, guests
departing on cruises from the U.S. are required to provide registration information
prior to embarkation.
What should you do?
The easiest and most convenient way to provide this information is to complete your
online registration process on each cruise line’s website at least three (3) days
prior to departure. Guests that do not complete the registration process prior to
embarkation will be required to check-in at least 90 minutes prior to the published
sailing time or they will be subject to denied boarding (no refunds will be provided).
Don’t Forget Proper ID:
In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will no longer be accepting oral
declarations to satisfy the requirements for identity and citizenship documentation.
Guests must present the proper travel documentation at embarkation. For complete
information on the required travel documentation, please visit the U.S. Government
