Please note that this information could change at any time without notice. You need the following documentation if you are US Citizen:
- A passport that is valid for at least 6 months after the date of your Cuba sailing.

For your convenience, Royal Caribbean can facilitate your Cuban tourist visa at the embarkation terminal for a cost of $75 per person, which will be charged to your onboard account on Day 1 of the cruise. You will complete a simple form at the terminal, be handed your visa, and you will be responsible for presenting it to Cuban authorities upon arrival in Cuba. Should you lose your visa, a new one can be purchased onboard at an additional cost of $75. If you prefer to secure a Cuban tourist visa by other means, please be sure to do so prior to the cruise. Then at the embarkation terminal, simply decline to have Royal Caribbean facilitate the visa for you. You will mark that you decline on your form, and you will not be charged. If you intend to remain onboard the ship while in Cuba, no visa is required.
- A Travel Certification document. This is a U.S. government document that you will use to certify the reason for your travel to Cuba, under one of the authorized categories of travel. Please download it and bring two printed, completed copies per traveler to the pier on embarkation day. An instructional document is available to assist guests in completing the Travel Certification document.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) Passport Requirements became effective June 1, 2010, for land and sea borders. While the WHTI requires a valid passport for land and sea travel, a final ruling was issued allowing leniency for “closed-loop” cruises, i.e., sailings that both originate and terminate in the same U.S. port.
U.S. citizens taking “closed-loop” cruises are not required to have a passport, but will need proof of citizenship such as an original or certified copy of a birth certificate, a certificate of naturalization, a passport card, an enhanced driver’s license (EDL) as well as a government-issued photo ID. Children are also required to bring proof of citizenship, and if 16 and over, a photo ID is also required. t and Bermudian citizens are required to have a passport for air, land and sea travel.
Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking “closed loop” cruises, we strongly recommend all guests travel with a passport (valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel). Having a passport will enable guests to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port in the event they miss their scheduled embarkation or to fly back to the U.S. if they need to disembark the ship mid-cruise due to an emergency.
For more information, a complete list of WHTI-compliant documents or to obtain a passport application, visit http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html.

Please understand that the Cruise Line will strictly enforce this requirement to be in compliance with this important U.S. Government mandate.
Non-U.S. Citizens: You will need a valid passport and, in some cases, a visa. If you live in the U.S., you will also need the original copy of your Alien Registration Card (ARC or “Green Card”) and any other documentation the countries on your itinerary require due to your alien status.
