Default Bahamas Immigration Forms

Hi everyone,
Just got my documents for my next cruise, Sept. 5 on the Fantasy... <document dance> I noticed that Carnival included the Bahamas immigration forms. All the posts I've read about this give me the impression that even if you fill them out in advance, at the port they will make you fill out new immigration forms. Is this true? What's everyone's experience with these forms? Should I bother to fill them out now?

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Fill them out, date them the day of the cruise (noy 30 days early) you just may save yourself 5 minutes on check in.

oh that's a good point. When we filled the forms out and mailed them in, we had to do it all over again at the port. I didn't even think about forward dating.

Thanks PapaBill, I will remember that when we get our docs.

In my experience, the bahamas forms are included in the ticket package. Fill it out, passport number being paramount, they rip it out when you check aboard along with all the other forms and that's the end of it. All you need to go ashore is your ship's ID and a government photo ID. The bahamian islands aren't really picky about who visits.
