TRAVEL PROTECTION INSURANCE
Travel Protection insurance is highly recommended to help protect your investment and provide assistance in a travel emergency. This is especially important if traveling abroad. Did you know that the U.S. Department of State recommends travel insurance for anyone traveling abroad? It’s true — in fact, they think travel insurance is so important they even say so in every U.S. passport. Just take a peek inside your passport. Your Cruise Planners agent is able to provide you with a quote for Travel Insurance and you must accept or decline this Insurance in writing.
ONLINE CHECK-IN PRIOR TO YOUR CRUISE
Cruise lines require that you pre-register and check-in for your cruise through their website no later than three days prior to sailing. If you have not completed online check-in you will be required to complete the information at the pier at least two hours prior to the published sailing time. All guests must be checked in and onboard the ship no later than 90 minutes prior to the published sailing time or will be refused the ability to sail and may not be entitled to a refund.
Air travelers with forms of identification (ID) that do not meet the REAL ID ACT requirements will have to use alternate ID forms (passport, military ID, or permanent resident card) to pass TSA security checkpoints—even for domestic travel. Please visit www.travel.state.gov or https://www.dhs.gov/real-id for the most updated requirements for travel documentation. Visas are required when they apply.
