Have you already reserved a cruise?
While you are counting down as you wait for the day of the cruise, here are some things that every passenger ought to know.
It is important for every passenger to check that his passport is valid for six months from the date of sailing. You can update your personal information about the passport in your account. Holders of a foreign passport should check visa requirements for the destination countries at the countries’ embassies.

Overseas travel insurance is very important. We advise every passenger to purchase insurance for injury, luggage, and cancellation of the transaction, from an insurance company or health fund.
