    Our 3-night Bahamian cruise from Port Canaveral is in December 2024, and my 11-year old daughter’s US passport expires in March 2025. I’ve read that some countries require the passport to be valid 3-6 months after the trip, so will it still be valid?

    Hi April,

    Thanks for sailing by planDisney with your question! I know you and your family are looking forward to your December getaway. When my daughters were young, we loved taking a pre-holiday vacation. You've inspired me to give that meaningful tradition another try!

    I confirmed with a Disney Cruise Line Cast Member that for your closed-loop (departing and returning to the same port) Bahamian cruise, all documents, including passports, must be valid for the entire length of your cruise. So, no worries that your daughter's passport is expiring after your cruise is complete. I recommend renewing her passport when you return home from your cruise so you can begin planning your next adventure!

    Your Very Merrytime Cruise aboard Disney Wish will be so festive! Make sure to check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app as soon as you board the ship to discover all the jolly activities in store for you. I like to select the heart icon next to activities I don't want to miss so the app will remind me 15 minutes beforehand. I especially love meeting Captain Minnie in her holiday attire!

    April, I hope this information sets your mind at ease. You will be on your merry way before you know it!

    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
