    We sail on March 4th just noticed that when I booked my reservation online I used "Jeff" instead of "Jeffrey" that is on my passport and DL. Will that be an issue?

    I'd call DCL and change it so that the documents match the booking. I suspect that it is not DCL trying to be picky, but rather that homeland security might be!

    Save yourself trouble at check in by making everything agree now.:goodvibes

    I agree, call and change it now rather than having to explain when you get there. While it may not be an issue better to not risk a delay at the port.

    I agree, call and change it. I know with airlines things have to be exact right down to your middle name.

    Someone I know made a reservation as Jim but his actual name is James. He was going to be denied boarding but after an hour of talking to one manager after another they finally changed his name in the system. Morale of the story, give DCL a call asap.
