Southern Caribbean Island Now Requires a Passport from Cruise Line Passengers

Travelers planning on visiting Martinique on a cruise, including Disney Cruise Line, will now be required to bring a valid passport to disembark the ship. Many Caribbean islands do not require a passport as long as the cruise starts and ends at a U.S. port, but Martinique will now be an exception.

This news was first reported by Cruise Fever, as they received a letter sent to Carnival Cruise Line passengers that stated, “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.”

Martinique is a southern Caribbean island and a territory of France.
