Before The Cruise

Choosing to arrive in Miami the day before our departure date (or a few days prior) can help to avoid any potential flight delays, lost baggage or other problems that could occur. Need to arrive on the day of departure? We recommend that you schedule your flight arrival in Miami for no later than 4:00pm ET, or Fort Lauderdale for no later 3:00pm ET.

Guests will be able to begin boarding around 12:00pm ET and must be on the ship no later than 7:30pm, as we will set sail at 8:00pm ET.

After The Cruise

We recommend that you arrange your return flight to leave Miami no earlier than 12:00pm ET or if you are flying out of Fort Lauderdale, no earlier than 1:00pm ET.

Passport

At the time of booking, you acknowledged that the laws that regulate the necessary travel documentation are subject to change and that it is your responsibility to be aware of what is required for travel.

View the latest information from Norwegian at ncl.com/traveldocs.  Below are recommendations based on the current U.S. government policy. This information could be updated without notice.

Please note: The name on your ticket must match the name on your passport or you will need to provide an original copy of proof of change of name (marriage license, etc).

U.S. Citizens

Sixthman highly recommends all guests travel with a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel. Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking cruises that begin & end in the same U.S. port, traveling with a passport enhances your disembarkation experience, as delays may be expected upon your return to the U.S. without one. Additionally, passports make it easier for you to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port should you miss your scheduled port of embarkation or need to fly back to the U.S. for emergency reasons. If you do not have a passport you can use an original or state-certified copy of a Birth Certificate as listed below.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) allows U.S. citizens sailing on cruises beginning and ending in the same U.S. port to travel with one of the following WHTI-compliant documents:

  • Valid U.S. Passport
  • Passport Card
  • Enhanced Driver's License (EDL)
  • Original (or state-certified copy of a) Birth Certificate PLUS a government-issued photo ID*
  • Certificate of Naturalization PLUS a government-issued photo ID*


*A government-issued photo ID is also required for all guests. For more information, a complete list of WHTI-compliant documents or to obtain a passport application, visit travel.state.gov.

For more information or to obtain a passport application, visit travel.state.gov

Non-U.S. Citizens

All Non-U.S. Seasiders must carry a valid passport, and if necessary, a multiple-entry visa is required for entry into the United States (i.e. B-2 Visitors Visa), or a visa waiver. Please check with the proper agencies and authorities (such as your local immigration office) before you sail because we can't board you without the proper documents. Travelers from the 38 Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries* must have a machine-readable passport to enter the U.S. without a visa. All VWP travelers are required to obtain an electronic travel authorization before boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the U.S. under the VWP.

If you are a non-US Seasider and are uncertain that you have the correct documentation, please call US Immigrations at 1-800-375-5283 to check if your identification will be satisfactory.

Alien Residents of the United States holding an Alien Registration Card (ARC or "Green Card") (Form I-551) may travel to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda (see Visa Restrictions on Bermuda), and the Caribbean with just their valid ARC and Proof of Identity. However, it is recommended that these guests also carry their passports from their country of citizenship, if available. In some instances, ARC holders may still be required to have sailing permits and/or visas to enter countries NCL visits in these areas.

Please note: travel anywhere else in the world requires a valid passport from the country you are a citizen of and subsequently subjects you to any documentation, visa, and health requirements of all countries visited.

What if I do not have proper identification?

There is no Jedi Mind Trick around this, you MUST have proper identification to board the ship. If you arrive at the port without proper identification, this may result in being denied boarding without compensation. Nobody wants this to happen!

Birth Certificates

These are ACCEPTABLE:

State-certified, U.S. Birth Certificates only, most of which say 'Certified Copy.' Photocopies are not valid. Color, size, layout, and design may vary from state to state.

These are NOT ACCEPTABLE:

Do not bring your hospital certificate. If it says 'this is not a legal document.' Then it's not a legal document.
