STUFF TO REMEMBER WHEN YOU CRUISE:

  1. Bring your passport!!!! Check your expiration date now. The rule is that you must have a valid passport that doesn’t expire until six months following your return date (May 9, 2019). A word to the wise: Just using your driver’s license and birth certificate is never a good idea because those are only valid if you leave and return to the same port. What if you get sick and have to fly home? Not returning to the same port are you? Don’t risk being unable to get home.
  2. Advise your credit card company you’ll be out of the country.
  3. Stop your newspaper service or have a neighbor pick up the papers.
  4. Be sure your cell phone will operate overseas and check on the cost.
  5. Make copies of all your travel documents, your passport, credit cards, etc., and leave them with someone reliable in case of loss. Or if you can do so securely, email them to yourself. Give that person a copy of your itinerary and emergency shipboard phone numbers (see your cruise documents).
  6. Put a copy of your itinerary in your suitcase, especially when flying.
  7. Change the appropriate email, phone messages.
  8. Check the weather and pack accordingly. BITS AND PIECES
