    I am going on a cruise that will stop in the Cayman Islands & Castaway Cay. I don’t have a passport but i have my birth certificate and driver’s license. My birth certificate has my maiden name. My married name is on my license. Will this be ok?

    Hi Kristin,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! How exciting to be planning a Disney Cruise Line vacation. Travel documentation is certainly an important part of your planning, so let’s get you ready.

    For round-trip cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean, you can use the original or a copy of your state-issued birth certificate AND a government-issued photo ID. Your cruise reservation should be made under the name of your photo ID, not your birth certificate. And yes, it is acceptable that your birth certificate and photo ID last names do not match. 

    Kristin, when you disembark at any port, including Castaway Cay, please remember to take your documentation and your Key to the World Card as you will need both to disembark and to embark at the end of the day. 

    You are going to have an amazing day at Castaway Cay. Each time I visit this little slice of paradise I appreciate it even more. On my recent visit, my friends and I enjoyed Pelican Plunge and I highly recommend it. It’s an easy swim over and the water slides are so much fun, even for adults!

    I hope this information helps you rest easy so you can focus on other planning, like deciding what to wear for Pirate Night. Let us know if you have other questions; we are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
