    i’m planning a bahama cruise for May 2022, what travel documents will i need? passports?

    Hi Rebekah!

    So excited to hEAR you will be setting sail next year for an adventure at sea with Captain Minnie! Every time Guests tell me about their plans for cruising, it makes me think of Aladdin and the song “A Whole New World.” Maybe it’s because the lyrics, “I can show you the world, shining, shimmering splendid!” Disney Cruise Line has enabled my family to explore exotic destinations around the globe, which makes the ship more like a magic carpet! 

    So you’ve grabbed the planDisney lamp and rubbed it to find out what is the appropriate travel documentation for your sailing. This past year has felt like we’ve all been in an “itty bitty living space” so it’s exciting  to imagine traveling to the Bahamas, right? 

    Currently, a passport is not required for U.S. citizens sailing on Disney Cruise Line itineraries leaving from a U.S. port and returning to the same U.S. port. This is the case for your itinerary to the Bahamas. Just to be on the safe side, be sure to check the Passport and Travel Documentation information on Disney Cruise Line's website for the most up-to-date details on what the necessary documents are. 

    For your sailing to the Bahamas, all Guests 16 and up will need to present an original or copy of their state-issued birth certificate AND a government-issued photo ID. Children 15 years of age or younger only need an original or copy of their state-issued birth certificate. 

    I wouldn’t be a proper Genie if I didn’t remind you to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. It’s the essential tool for checking times for activities and entertainment, dinner menus, deck plans, and so much more! This app is as precious as the lamp was to Aladdin in having his wishes answered! 

    Rebekah, no need to travel all the way to Agrabah if you have more cruise planning questions: call on your Genies at planDisney. “You ain’t never had a friend like me” and my fellow panelists. We will do our very best to grant the answers to your questions.

    WISHing you a fabulous voyage!
