Domestic Travel
• For domestic travel which includes: the Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico, a valid passport is required.

• A voter registration card or Social Security Card are not considered to be proof of citizenship.

Disney Cruise Line Recommendation
Disney Cruise Line strongly requires that all guests travel with a valid passport during their cruise. This greatly assists guests who may need to fly out of the United States to meet their ship at the next available port should they miss their scheduled embarkation in a U.S. port; guests entering the U.S. at the end of their cruise; and guests needing to fly to the U.S. before their cruise ends, because of medical, family, personal or business emergencies, missing a ship’s departure from a port of call, involuntary disembarkation from a ship due to misconduct, or other reasons.

Guests who cruise on or after January 2007, who need to fly to the United States before their cruise ends will likely experience significant delays and complications related to booking airline tickets and entering the United States if they do not have a valid passport with them. For additional passport information visit www.travel.state.gov. Or if you prefer, contact Passport Express at www.passportservices.com/celebrity for applications and assistance.

Non-U.S. Citizens
Non-U.S. citizens will need a valid passport and, in some cases, a visa. If the guest lives in the U.S., he/she will also need the original copy of his/her Alien Registration Card (ARC or "Green Card") and any other documentation the countries on the itinerary require due to his/her alien status
