Here is a list I pulled off the internet..I pared it down a bit.. but, if we all brought all this, we would pay a fortune in baggage fees, but scan the list and see what is appropriate for the 2 of you, that makes sense.

The Essentials
  • airline tickets or e-ticket confirmation
  • cruise documents
  • passports and visas or proof of citizenship (if needed)
  • vaccination certificate (if required)
  • driver’s license and auto insurance card – in case you decide to rent in one of your port of call

  • 3 copies of airline tickets, cruise tickets, passports/visas, itinerary – the first set to be left on your carry on bag, the second set to be left in your checked luggages, and the third set to be left with someone at home. Alternatively, you can scan the documents and email an electronic copy to yourself so that you can access them from any computer through the internet.
