Q

What are the top things to know after I have booked a Royal Caribbean cruise?

A

Gathering Documents

Make sure you have the proper forms of identification needed for your cruise. Give yourself plenty of time to obtain or renew your passport, if necessary. In order to make the boarding process as simple as possible, we strongly encourage you to visit RoyalCaribbean.com/onlinecheckin to check in online and print your SetSail Pass no later than three days prior to your sail date. Additionally, guests should look into any visa requirements for their itinerary. Learn more about required travel documents.

Vaccination Guidance

While COVID-19 vaccination is not required for most sailings, a few countries still require vaccination to cruise. Additionally, some countries require you complete COVID-19 related travel authorizations before setting sail. Learn more.

Testing Requirements

Pre-cruise testing is no longer required to sail, with a few exceptions. Guests on transatlantic sailings, a sailing that departs from Australia, or a sailing that visits Colombia, will be required to complete pre-cruise testing prior to boarding day.

To learn more about specific testing requirements for your sailing, please visit our Testing Requirements FAQ.
