I wonder if anyone can help on the matter of visa requirements for cruises. I am a British Citizen living in New York, both my husband and I have valid working visas for the US in our British passports. Do we need to make special arrangements for entry into Puerto Rico, or any of the islands we are visiting (St Thomas, Dominica, Barbados and Aruba) or will we just be fine with bringing our passports along?
Is there anyone I could call to give me concrete advice?
I suggest calling the British Embassy in New York or the U.S. State Department. They will be the ones who will give you the concrete information you need. A message board may not be the best source for this.

Pooky, if it works the same for us Dutchies, you fill in a green waver visa paper, given to you at your airport, to be handed at immigration in the USA, a part of that waver visa will be put in your passport and be taken out when flying back home. Your TA can answer that question too.

Jacqueline - From what I can tell form your post I shoudl be fine with what I ahve. I actually have a visa for the uS so I don't fill out the green form I fill out a white one when I arrive in the US - which is already in my passport but I will phone the Embassy in NYC to check.
