After you receive your booking ID number and register with Royal Caribbean, you are still able to add on special events through our website, as we will still have access to your reservation.
I have a crown and anchor membership; will I get credit for this cruise?
Yes! You are welcome to call or email us with your membership number and we’ll be happy to add that to your reservation and notify the cruise line.

I am traveling with an infant/toddler, do I still need to pay full price for him or her?

Travel Documentation & Regulations

Will I need a passport? What if I do not have a passport? Am I able to use a passport card?
While a passport book is strongly recommended, you are able to use your original birth certificate (with raised seal) in conjunction with a photo ID (i.e. driver’s license) for this cruise. If your name has changed and differs from the last name on your birth certificate, please bring your original marriage license or other proof of name change. Real ID’s or any other form of documentation other than what is listed above may not be used. Please note that any individuals who would need to fly out of a foreign port would not be able to do so with their birth certificate or passport card.
Can I use my birth certificate/name change documentation (marriage certificate)?
While a passport is recommended, you are able to use your original birth certificate (with raised seal) in conjunction with your photo ID (i.e. driver’s license) for this cruise. If your name has changed and differs from the last name on your birth certificate, please bring your original marriage license.
I read that 6 months validity is needed when using a passport for this cruise, is that true?
It is recommended that your passport has at least 6 months validity, however you are still able to board the ship using your passport up to its expiration date. Please note that while you are able to use a passport that expires within 6 months of the sailing date, you will be unable to use your passport to fly out of a foreign port, should that be necessary.
I will be traveling with a child 15 years or younger, is a passport required or can the minor use their birth certificate to board? What documentation is needed for the child?
While a passport is strongly recommended, the child is able to use their original birth certificate (with raised seal), no other documentation is necessary. However, in the event that the child’s guardian must stay in port in an emergency situation, the child will be unable to fly back to the U.S. using his or her birth certificate. A passport is strongly recommended for this reason. Children 16+ need ID plus his or her birth certificate.

Experience Packages

What is the Entrance Experience?
The Entrance Package was built for those guests who would like to join their friends or family members on the cruise but may not necessarily want to participate in all of the fan experiences. Entrance package holders have perks and are still able to attend some events, including the welcome aboard show and our photo sessions with the players! Entrance package holders are also able to participate in the silent and live auctions and have the ability to purchase special events! Entrance package holders will receive a Cruise lanyard which will identify them as part of our group.
Do I need to purchase an experience package for my infant/toddler?
Children under 5 years of age at the time of sailing do not need to pay for an experience package and will be able to attend all events with their guardians.

Kids 6-12 may purchase a Bronze package at 50% discount. No child discounts are available on silver or gold packages.

Can we mix and match packages on our reservation?
Yes! Guests within a reservation can mix and match packages to suit the individual experience preferences for each guest.
Can I upgrade or downgrade my experience package throughout the year?

Yes! Guests are welcome to upgrade or downgrade packages at any time before sailing. *Guests choosing to downgrade their experience package must purchase the package at the current rate.
