Travel Documentation

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the required travel documents. The requirements described below are required by U.S. and foreign governments which are subject to change without notice. 


The United States Government requires ALL guests travel with a current Passport “Book” that is valid for at least 6 months beyond your return date following this cruise. Your Passport “Book” must contain enough blank pages for entry and exit endorsements and any required visas. 


Passport “Book” must be VALID through at least JANUARY 7, 2020.


Even though the U.S. Government offers a Passport “Card”, it is not valid for this cruise itinerary. A current U.S. Passport “Book” is required to travel. It is important to note that the airlines and Princess Cruises will deny boarding for guests who do not possess the proper citizenship documentation.


If you are extending your stay in Europe following this cruise, you will need to ensure that your Passport “Book” is valid 6 months beyond your scheduled return date to the U.S.


It is the sole responsibility of the guest to identify and obtain all required travel documents for the entire cruise vacation and have them available when necessary. These appropriate, valid travel documents are required for boarding and re-entry into the United States and other countries. Passport “Books” are required for all international air travel to and from the United States. Names on passport and cruise reservation must match. 


As a reminder, guests who do not possess the proper documentation will be prevented from boarding their flights and the Emerald Princess as well as entering a foreign country.


The airlines and cruise lines will not offer refunds to individuals who fail to bring proper documentation and are denied boarding.
