Planning your next Disney Cruise Line vacation? If so, you may want to make sure you have your passport as the French island Martinique (a popular port destination for Disney Cruise Line) will soon be requiring all guests have a valid passport in order to go ashore.
The news comes from a special message sent to guests of Carnival Cruise Line’s Pride ship regarding necessary documentation for their upcoming departure on November 9. In the message, Carnival writes of the French island’s new rules.
“Officials in Martinique have informed us that all cruise visitors to the island must have a valid passport in order to go ashore. This requirement will be strictly enforced by local authorities. If you do not already have a passport, we encourage you to obtain one before your voyage,” says the message originally shared by Cruise Fever.
Currently, Disney Cruise Line only has two ships that sail to the Southern Caribbean island, these include the Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy on a 7-Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from San Juan and a 9-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral.
According to the Disney Cruise Line website, the company already requires guests sailing the 7-Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from San Juan to have passports prior to sailing. However, the 9-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral does not require the international ID.
