FROM CARNIVAL'S WEB SITE:
Carnival requires guests to provide proper travel documentation in order to
travel. The passport requirement does NOT apply to U.S. citizens traveling to or
returning directly from a U.S. territory.
Non-U.S. Citizens must contact the appropriate Consulates, U.S. Embassy, and
U.S. Immigration office to inquire about necessary travel documentation.
Carnival assumes no responsibility for advising guests of immigration
However, it's HIGHLY recommended that all guests travel with a valid passport
during their cruise. It is also recommended that all guests travel with a
passport valid for at least 6 months beyond completion of travel.
This will enable guests:
1) Fly from the U.S. to meet their ship at the first port should they miss their
2) Disembark the ship before their cruise ends due to an emergency to fly back
to the U.S. without significant delays and complications.
When traveling with a minor and both parents/legal guardians are not
cruising, Carnival strongly recommends bringing an original, signed letter from
the absent parent/legal guardian authorizing the minor to travel with you. This
will expedite processing by the Department of Homeland Security. Please note
that a notarized letter to this effect is required if debarking with children in
Even though a guest has completed registration using FUNPASS, it's still the
responsibility of the guest to bring all required travel
Any guest without proper documents will not be allowed to board the vessel and
no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. Carnival assumes no responsibility
for advising guests of proper travel documentation.
