SetSail Pass & SeaPass Card

Recommended Posts

I have a TWO PART question.....

Do I need a hard copy of my SetSail Pass during Check-In or would the SetSail Pass in the Royal App suffice?

Also, do I need to take any additional identification (ie. passport, driver license, etc.) when getting off the ship for an excursion, or do I just need to take my SeaPass Card?

The one in the Royal App will work.  Make sure you screen shot it just in case your internet is acting wonky when you get to the port and won't let you get to the barcode.

SeaPass and photo ID when getting off the ship.  SeaPass proves you belong in the port, photo ID to match the name on the SeaPass.

Taking a screenshot is a great idea, remember being turned away at airport security because I had no signal and could not get the boarding pass to show up on my phone

What a relaxing and stress free day that was 🙂

Pro-tip..make your boarding pass screenshot your screen saver so you don't even have to unlock the phone to get to it.

While there are some people who have stated on other threads that they take their passports off the ship, most vacationers i have spoken to leave such documents in their stateroom safe.@AshleyDillo expressed the majority view that ID and Sea Pass are sufficient.    In my opinion, you would only take your passport if you were taking a long 3rd party excursion and were worried that you'd miss the ship and need to fly to the next port, or that you'd have a medical emergency and need to be evacuated.   I am more worried about pickpockets than an emergency, so I leave my passport in the safe.

Whatever you choose to do, have a great cruise!

I always carry paper copies of everything besides having it on my phone. I'm both old and old school! You just never know.

My wife is the same way. She carries a manila envelope in her backpack with everything pertaining to the cruise; SetSail Passes, payment receipt from our travel agent and shipboard activities/excursions, our activities calendar...... But I trust in knowing she's got it just in case that one time we need them.

I've been on 3 cruises, this will be my 4th... all different lines... but I have never taken my passport ashore, and I usually dont even bring my license on the cruise because I have the passport. I'll have to think about it this time around.

I've only cruised once, and only to Nassau & Coco Cay, but they were checking photo IDs in Nassau at the port security check when we re-boarded, before you got into Royal's own area.

This has been happening more and more, take some type of photo id with you, if you don't trust taking your passport take your drivers license. On San Juan 2 weeks ago, I saw people (Significant other's that had their photo ID) having to run to the ship and get the photo id for the other person before they could pass security.

Only 2 places I know where this is not needed is Labadee and Coco Cay.
