Before You Board

  • The United States Transportation Security Administration recommends that you do not pack fragile or expensive items (such as jewelry) in checked luggage. 
  • Weapons, illegal drugs, and other items that could interfere with the safe operation of the ship or the safe and secure environment of our guests and crew are prohibited. If these items are confiscated, they will not be returned. 
  • The following are examples of items that guests are not allowed to bring onboard and they will be confiscated upon being found: 
    • Firearms & Ammunition, including realistic replicas 
    • Sharp Objects, including knives and scissors* 
    • Illegal Drugs & Substances 
    • Aerial Drones 
    • Candles & Incense

NOTE: The only exception to this policy are curling irons and hair straighteners. Matches and normal lighteners are allowed onboard. However, “torch lighters” and novelty lighters that look like guns are not allowed onboard. Torch lighters emit a powerful concentrated flame and therefore are prohibited. 
    • ***Alcoholic beverages that are purchased in ports-of-call or from shops onboard will be stored by the ship and delivered to you on the last day of the sailing. Alcoholic beverages seized on embarkation day will not be returned. 

Please dress comfortably and for the weather.  We recommend “Smart Casual” for the day events, and “Evening Chic” attire in the evening for dinner and events.   Please remember to dress appropriately for daily Mass and prayer services.  

    • Smart Casual includes the following: 
      • For women, a skirt, pants, or jeans with a casual top. 
      • For men, shorts or jeans with a shortsleeved sport shirt. 
    • Evening Chic includes: 
      • For women, a cocktail dress, or skirt, pants, or designer jeans with an elegant top. 
      • For men, pants or designer jeans with a dress shirt, button-down shirt, or sweater with an optional sportcoat or blazer. 
  • During the day and in port, shorts, flip-flops, and bathing suits are permitted everywhere except the main restaurant or specialty restaurants.  You may wish to pack a sweater as air conditioning in some venues on the ship can be cool.   

As we approach the time of the sailing, we will be communicating this information with you via email.
