Default Booking last minute

I am traveling on the Sensation on Nov 11 and did not book the cruise until Oct 28, The TA says I will not receive my travel docs in time and will have to pick them up at the port. I am worried about what information I am missing since this is my first cruise. For example I did not know I had to deposit cash in a ship shore acct and would not have had it. Is there anything else I should know

Way to go Sally on booking the first cruise. If you need some help I'm available Nov. 11.

In addition to what Mike said, be sure to tip the baggage handler at the pier about $1 per bag.

The information you'll need for your documents is your personal information and a person's name and address for a contact in case of an emergency. I hope you have a passport, if not make sure you have an original birth certificate with a RAISED seal. No copies unless they've been certified by the state with a RAISED seal.

Happy sailing,
