    Hello, we are planning a family trip and my husband is a USA resident but his passport is expired. Could he travel with only his USA green card? Our trip is from Galveston Tx round trip and it goes to Progreso and Cozumel Mexico.

    Hello, Adamarie! You’ve asked a great question, and I’m happy to help.

    Good job proactively ensuring your citizenship documentation is in order. I remember one cruise when my husband misplaced his birth certificate, and I was so nervous he wouldn’t get a replacement in time. After that trip, we made sure everyone had a passport. 

    While having a passport is always a good idea, legal permanent residents of the United States can use a valid original Permanent Resident Card to sail on a closed-loop cruise. Photocopies are not accepted, and the card must be valid for the duration of your cruise. For detailed travel guidelines, head to the Disney Cruise Line website, click "Already Booked," and select "Travel Documentation."

    U.S. citizens in your travel party have two options for documentation. They can present either an original U.S. Passport or an original/copy of a state-issued birth certificate along with a government-issued photo ID. It's important to note that children aged 15 and under don't need a photo ID.

    How exciting that you're planning to celebrate the holly jolly Christmas season with Mickey and the gang! There's plenty of Christmas cheer for both the young and young-at-heart. Last holiday season, there was a festive tree-lighting ceremony, hugs with Santa Claus, story time with Mrs. Claus, and a merry deck party. It's going to be a season to remember!

    Please feel free to revisit us as your Very Merrytime Cruise approaches. We are here to help you plan a family vacation to remember.  

    SEAS the adventure!
