A Disney Cruise Line port will soon require guests to have a valid passport to go ashore.
Guests traveling to the souther Caribbean port, Martinique, must have a valid passport to leave the ship and explore the port. Martinique is a popular destination for Disney cruisers.
Carnival Cruise Line recently sent out a message to those travelling to Martinique on the Carnival Pride this November. The message reads:
“Dear Carnival Pride Guest,
We have an important message to share regarding travel documentation requirements for Martinique.
Officials in Martinique have informed us that all cruise visitors to the island must have a valid passport in order to go ashore. This requirement will be strictly enforced by local authorities. If you do not already have a passport, we encourage you to obtain one before your voyage.
Thank you for your understanding. We can’t wait to welcome you aboard for a fun and memorable cruise.”
The Disney Wonder sails to Martinique on the 7-night Southern Caribbean Cruise from San Juan. The Disney Fantasy sails to the Disney Cruise Line port Martinique on the 9-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise out of Port Canaveral.
Disney Cruise Line’s website shows that passports are required for the 7-night cruise detailed above, but it does not state that passports are required for the 9-night Easter Caribbean Cruise. This will be changed soon.
