I do hope in the future if you plan to travel out of the country again, you will make sure of this. Just because a US citizen can go into Canada without a VISA, does not mean other countries can. And vise versa-I understand Americans need VISAS to visit Russia-but that does not mean a person from the Eukraine Or Poland would need a VISA to visit Russia.
If the cruise line knows to turn you back at the dock for not having a right visa - I am pretty sure they can make an effort to know the same details when the customer is booking the ticket. Dont you think that is logical???
