We are non-US citizens looking to do a 7 night western cruise in September 2012

On my last Disney Cruise in 2002, I remember having to get up really early a couple of days to do passport checks/immigration

Is this still the same?

If so, can you tell me which ports and the times we have to be up (roughly)?

Thanks

It actually depends now on what country you are from. As far as know they allow Canadians to keep there passports and leave the port just like Americans do. All others surrender there passports and have to go through immigration on the ship before the ship is cleared.

And is that just in Fl on the last day? No other early starts?

Hi, this is not true anymore, I sailed in Feb 2010 on the western, I'm british and we did not surrender our passports, or have to go to a early meeting on the last morning. As far as I could tell no one of any nationality had to surrender their passports either.

Just sailed on the 4 night Bahamas, same experience. Did not surrender passport and no early meeting. Also from the UK.
