We are taking that cruise. I believe that I read passports are NOT required.

My quick googling confirmed you did not need one. I found it on an airline site, but didn't dig far after I saw the dates were during the school year.

You do not need a passport to fly to San Juan, as Puerto Rico is a US territory.

I would never travel out of country anymore without my passport. Just my own preference.

Any guesses on when DVC will release point charts though? I know people don't like to use points for cruises but we have some we need to use before they expire, and I like the thought of the cruise being 'paid off' immediately...

My family is excited about the 12 night on July 14th from Venice to Greece. We love the fact that they are going to many different Greek Islands. And of course ones I have not been to! We spent a month in Greece in '07 when we did the Med cruise but we only went to islands most never travel too...

The fact that there is only ONE cruise for this itinerary...hope it doesn't book fast. We can book tomorrow the DVC person said at 8am but I am on the West Coast....5 am....yuck!!

Wish I knew the pricing...

Called DVC and no points yet until tomorrow...but the same basic cruise for this summer, with some different ports of course, is 569 per adult (first 2) and 252 for 3rd adult. If it stays about the same I will have enough points...
If more then points for some but then I have to pay in full the cash part...really don't like that...
What to do, what to do?

Passports are not required if your coming from the U.S. since PR is a U.S. territory.

Denise, Member Services at DVC said you could book tomorrow? If so, that's great news! I am going to try to book the 10/11/14 Southern in the morning...is it 8am EST?

Thinking seriously about booking the Southern Caribbean cruise. Is anyone else concerned that the dates available are right in the middle of hurricane season? I typically wouldn't be that concerned because I know the ship would go somewhere if a hurricane crosses it's path but in this case I would be booking this cruise specifically for the ports offered.
