REQUIRED TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION
Please make sure you have the correct documentation before boarding the ship! If you are a US Citizen, passports are highly recommended, but you may also use a Birth Certificate (original or certified copy) and Government-Issue Photo ID. US Residents will need a copy of your Green Card. Non-US Citizens will need a passport, and possibly a Visa, depending on your country of citizenship.
It is YOUR responsibility to make sure you have the correct documentation to board the ship. For more information about passport requirements, please visit www.getyouhome.com and www.travel.state.gov.
If you have any specific questions about your situation, or if you are not a US Citizen, please call US Customs and Border Protection at 877-CBP-5511 or 202-354-1000 to be sure your identification is satisfactory. Whet Travel is unable to verify whether your documents will be acceptable for boarding, and is not responsible for denied boarding due to incorrect documentation.

ALCOHOL AND DRUGS ON THE GROOVE CRUISE
DRUGS Don’t be shocked when you see a SWAT team and a bunch of dogs at the port as you get on the ship. We had a couple of people get arrested a few years ago and none last year so let’s keep it that way. ALSO, when the ship docks in Miami at around 7am on Monday morning, Customs or Miami Police WILL BRING DOGS onboard and go through the hallways and can arrest you in your stateroom if the dogs find anything. There is no worse way to start or end a vacation than in jail. NCL/Whet Travel have a zero tolerance policy with drugs. Don’t be dumb.
ALCOHOL NCL does not allow alcohol to be brought onboard except one bottle of wine/champagne (which is charged a corkage fee of $15-$30 depending on the size). As many of you noticed on the last cruise, NCL has more sophisticated scanners to find liquids in suit cases (including ‘rum runners’). There were several hundred Groove Cruisers that had to wait HOURS as NCL scanned suspect suit cases one by one by hand and threw away tons of alcohol. And yes they even check your shampoo bottles and water bottles that you ‘think’ they won’t notice. We have a better process in place to collect suspect luggage so it should go much smoother if your luggage is pulled aside…otherwise it will be at your stateroom by around 5pm.
