Important Passport Information New Passport Regulations from the U.S. Government Proposed federal regulations would require all cruise travelers to the Caribbean (including The Bahamas) and Mexico to have valid passports when entering or returning to the United States on or after December 31, 2006. Therefore, guests who are booked on sailings on or after December 28, 2006 need to obtain a passport for each member of their family and provide us with the passport number at least 75 days prior to vacation commencement. This past cruise I booked only 30 days prior to sailing. Wonder how this will affect late bookings in 2007?? No last minute passports for anyone either!!
