Know Before You Go

Travel tips to help you prepare for your adventure.

  •  Consider packing your swimsuit, sandals, sunscreen, and maybe even a good book in your carryon so that you can enjoy a warm sunny day by the pool after you board the ship in Miami. Your checked bags will be delivered to your room later that evening.
  • Download your complete packing guide here.
  • Don’t forget to pack things like cash, cell phone chargers and your wallet. USD are accepted in all ports.
  • When you’re onboard, the right look will vary by venue but below are a few types of suggested attire you’ll see, grouped by type.
    • → Casual Attire: You’re on vacation – relax! Jeans, polos, sundresses and blouses are welcomed. Please keep swimwear to the Pool Deck. Shorts are welcomed for breakfast and lunch.
    • → Smart Casual Attire: Dress to impress with collared shirts, dresses, skirts and blouses, or pantsuits. Jackets, sport coats and blazers are optional.
    • → Formal Attire: Make it a night out in your best black-tie look – suits and ties, tuxedos, cocktail dresses or evening gowns.
  • If you’re planning to visit the onboard fitness center, be sure to bring a set of workout clothes and shoes.
  • If you’re planning to ice skate, please pack long pants and socks. All skaters are required to wear long pants and socks for your comfort and safety.
  • Many countries in the Caribbean, prohibit wearing camouflage clothing or carrying camouflage bags. We recommend you avoid packing either of these.
  • Passports are required so please make sure yours and your guests’ are up to date.
  • Always keep your passport handy and secured and do NOT pack it in your checked bag. You will need it when boarding the ship in Miami.
Cruise Ship
  • When departing Miami, don’t forget to put your cell phone in airplane mode if you don’t have an international plan.
