“A travel document is an identity document issued by a government or international treaty organization to facilitate the movement of individuals or small groups of persons across international boundaries. Travel documents usually assure other governments that the bearer may return to the issuing country, and are often issued in booklet form to allow other governments to place visas as well as entry and exit stamps into them. The most common travel document is a passport, which usually gives the bearer more privileges like visa-free access to certain countries. However, the term is sometimes used only for those documents which do not bear proof of nationality, such as a refugee travel document.”
Some general information coupled with specific cruise guidelines are:
Manulife and Travel Guard Insurances are available directly with Luxury Corporate Cruises. Prices depend on age and the cruise / travel costs. It can include emergency medical, trip cancellation and interruption, loss/damage of baggage and personal effects, baggage delay and flight and travel accident insurance. Some limitations and exclusions may apply. We strongly recommend everyone purchase insurance. Waivers must be scanned to us if you do not want to purchase this insurance.
Everyone must each individually check with your own physicians on this matter and ensure you follow up accordingly please.
Guests must take valid Passports that do not expire within 6 months of the sailing return date. We also encourage you to take a photo copy of your Passport and pack it in a different place from other ID and also take Drivers License and Certified Birth Certificates as back up ID.
As shown on most Guest Invoices, this is your responsibility. Please see a variety of websites to ensure you have all the proper traveling papers you need. Again be sure to check on your own what travel documentation you need or ask us for assistance.
Sometimes travel accounts will automatically be charged gratuity. Some tipping charges need not be pre-paid but must be paid onboard. Others include tips in the costs.
Usually there is only an added charge that will be applied to cruisers only if the price of fuel exceeds a pre-determined dollar value / barrel.
Early Booking Online?
Almost always, each cruise guest can check in online at 24 hours after final payment has been made. We encourage cruisers all to do this as early as possible and the cruise lines require some online information mandatory or can deny boarding. We suggest you make certain you are checked-in and onboard no later than 90 minutes prior to the sailing time or again, depending on the ship, you will not be permitted to sail. This is government regulation. Once you have checked-in online, bring your identification documents with you to the cruise terminal. You will receive a card to board the ship. This card is important. Do not lose it, as it is all that allows you to embark and disembark in ports, open your ship stateroom, and pay for charges onboard ship.
Go online to book excursions of choice anytime after booking until before sailing. You may also book onboard but the best options sell out fast. These are optional purchases. You may choose to do sightseeing on your own instead as well.
These are memberships given to anyone who has sailed on Cruise Lines before and opted to apply for them. If you have these numbers please provide them to us or ask that we search for them. These should be shown on your Guest Invoices if you have a membership.
