Default Passport Expiration

I thought I read somewhere that your passport cannot expire within 6 months of the cruise.

Is that true?

Thanks,

Brian

This is not "necessarily" true. You can still cruise, especially the Caribbean, with a passport that expires in six months or less. As long as it doesn't expire before or until after your cruise, you are OK.

The only problem is that some countries, especially those requiring visas, require that your passport be valid for six months at the time of entry to that country.

If you have at least 90 days before your cruise then it's worth it to get your passport renewed but if you are just cruising the Caribbean and your passport is still valid, then do it after you get home.

Take care,
Mike

I have a cruise the middle of September to Alaska and will be sailing from Vancouver, so I know I need a passport. Mine does expire in October. Am I still safe? The trip ends up in Seattle.
