In addition to the Passport and Visa requirements indicated on this page, guests are asked to bring with them a 2nd official form of identification in the way of a laminated driving licence or identification card issued by a federal, state, provincial, country, territory or municipal authority if their sailing itinerary makes port calls in Croatia.
A valid passport is a requirement for all international sailings and air travel.Ensure sufficient blank visa pages within the passport for visa stamps. For your protection, we recommend that your passport expiry date not occur within six (6) months following the voyage termination date. Since the ship will collect your passport to speed the clearance formalities at each port of call, we suggest you bring with you a few photocopies of your passport's personal information page, which includes the picture, and that you carry one of these photocopies with you each time you leave the ship.For additional passport information and visa requirements for your journey visit www.tollvisasdirect.com/royalcaribbean
Royal Caribbean International strongly recommends that all guests travel with a valid passport during any cruise. This greatly assists guests who may need to fly out of non-scheduled ports should they miss their scheduled embarkation because of medical, family, personal or business emergencies, missing a ship's departure from a port of call, involuntary disembarkation from a ship due to misconduct or other reasons.
Please contact the Embassy (Consular Services) of each country on your sailing itinerary or the visa service of your choice for specific visa requirements, information, forms and fees for your nationality. A valid passport is required with at least 6 months validity; visas are required where they apply.

Guests on consecutive sailings must ensure they have the proper travel documents for their entire cruise holiday.
As detailed in our brochure, all guests must ensure that they are medically and physically fit for travel. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide guidelines as to which vaccinations are required in each country. In many cases inoculations are recommended but in some circumstances they are required. We recommend that you check with your GP or a Travel Medicine Specialist certified by the WHO for guidance. Other information resources can be accessed at the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs website at www.smartraveller.gov.au and the World Health Organization website at www.who.int/vaccines-diseases/.
Family Legal Documents
Should the last names of the parent and minor child travelling with them differ, the parent is required to present the child's valid passport and visa (if required) and the child's birth certificate (original, a notarised copy or a certified copy). The name of the parent(s) and the child must be linked through legal documentation.
Non Parents/legal guardians travelling with minors aged 17 years and under
Adults who are not the parent or legal guardian of any child travelling with them will be required to present the child’s valid passport and any applicable visas (or for domestic Australian sailings a certified copy of child’s birth certificate) and an original, legally affirmed or notarised letter signed by at least one of the child’s parents/legal guardians.
The letter must authorise the travelling adult to take the child on the specific cruise and must authorise the travelling adult to supervise the child, sign applicable sports waivers and permit any medical treatment that must be administered to the child, which in the opinion of the treating doctor needs to be carried out without delay.
A letter can be legally affirmed or notarised by a practicing solicitor, notary or commissioner of oaths, who may charge a fee for this service. A form should be completed for this purpose and obtained from our office. If such evidence is not produced, the minor(s) concerned will not be permitted to board the ship and undertake the cruise.
Different Surnames (Last Names):
If a woman has several surnames on different documents such as birth certificate and driving licence, then she must bridge the difference with other documents, such as, a marriage licence and/or divorce papers. The additional bridging documents must be the original or a certified or notarised copy. Adults who are not the parent or legal guardian of any minor child travelling with them are required to present the child's valid passport and visa or the child's birth certificate (original, a notarised copy or a certified copy) and an original notarised letter signed by at least one of the child's parents. Adults who are not the parent or legal guardian of a minor travelling with them must present an original notarised letter signed by the child's parent(s), authorising the adult to take the child on the specific cruise, supervise the child and allow emergency medical treatment to be administered. If a non-parent adult is a legal guardian, the adult must present a certified certificate of guardianship with respect to the child.
It is the guests' responsibility to identify and to obtain all the necessary visas before leaving home, unless otherwise instructed below. Depending on nationality, many countries still require an entry visa. A visa for Cambodia and Vietnam is required for many nationalities, but it may not be the only visas required for this sailing based on your nationality. For Cambodia and Vietnam, the ship's personnel will assist each guest required to secure a visa for Cambodia and Vietnam and charge the guests' onboard SeaPass account a single nominal fee. These visa fees include a small processing charge by our local representative.
