    Hi, my child’s Canadian passport expires in November and we’re sailing in August to the Bahamas. Do we need a new passport or can we still sail with it?

    Greetings, Josephine! Thank you for cruising our way with your question.

    A Disney Cruise is the perfect family vacation! There is something for everyone to enjoy on board while you sail on a luxurious ship and visit incredible destinations. Since the ocean is calling, let’s dive in and ensure your travel documents are shipshape for travel.

    Passport requirements can vary depending on the destination. For Bahamian cruises, it's not necessary for passports to have a six-month validity after the trip. I recommend visiting the Travel Documentation section on the Disney Cruise Line website for the most accurate and up-to-date information. Navigate to the Already Booked tab and scroll down to the Before You Go section, where you'll find the Travel Documentation link. Remember to keep your citizenship documents handy in your carry-on bag. They'll be scanned one last time before you enter the terminal for boarding. 

    Josephine, your daughter is in for a treat at the kids’ clubs! To ensure she gets the most out of her experience, I highly recommend visiting during Open House hours on the first day. This will give you both the opportunity to meet the counselors and explore the fantastic spaces together. The counselors are experts at making even the most hesitant sailors feel at ease. For a preview of the daily activities, just open the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Once connected to the ship’s Wi-Fi, it becomes your ultimate guide to the magic.

    I hope this helps set the course for an unforgettable voyage! Feel free to reach out if you have any more questions or need further assistance. My pals and I love to help!

    SEAS the adventure!
