    Going on cruise in Dec - as an international visitor do I need any other paperwork other than my passport to do the onshore excursions (Bahamas & W/Caribbean cruises). Have asked this Q before but never got an answer - please help, it is getting closer

    Hi, Annette!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Disney Cruise!  In addition to a valid passport, many countries require an entry visa based on your nationality. It is each guest's responsibility to identify and obtain all the necessary visas before commencing the cruise. Because requirements may vary, you should contact your local consulate or embassy for more information on required travel documentation for the port of embarkation and all ports of call during the cruise.

    If your country participates in the Visa Waiver Program, you are now required to have a valid machine-readable passport and obtain 72-hour advance travel authorization via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to boarding carriers by air or sea to the U.S. under the visa waiver program. For a list of applicable countries and registration requirements, ESTA information is accessible online at

    I hope this helps navigate you in the right direction, and if you think of other questions, please let me know. I'd be happy to help again. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
