The only exception to this policy is when parents are traveling with their children in different staterooms.

Guests originating or terminating their cruise in a foreign port will also be subject to inspection by U.S. Customs officials.

Safety & Security
The ships have been designed with your complete safety in mind, equipped with modern stabilizers and built to the world's highest standards of shipbuilding quality. Our ships comply with all safety codes and pass annual testing inspections with the highest marks.

When in port during a cruise, our unique computerized security system takes a reading of each guest's stateroom key card at the gangway to identify you and inform us when you leave the ship and when you return. A government issued photo ID card is also required for boarding and re-boarding. All personal items are scanned by an x-ray machine when boarding to ensure the safety and security of our guests.

Inoculations
Requirements for inoculations often change. Crystal Cruises will inform you of the health requirements; however, it is your responsibility to have all required vaccinations with signed International Certificate of Vaccination. We recommend that you contact your personal physician with any health concerns. Failure to comply can result in refusal of passage by international Customs and Immigration authorities.

Air Transportation / Luggage:
Transfers, porterage and luggage handling are part of our all-inclusive Crystal Air/Sea Program. If you choose to arrange for air travel independently, you may purchase embarkation and disembarkation airport transfers from Crystal Cruises.

When making your own air arrangements, we recommend allowing a minimum of four hours between your flight arrival time and the ship's sailing time. Specific Port and pier information and embarkation times are stated on your cruise ticket. Port authorities sometimes change the location of the pier or berth number, so be sure that you actually see your ship when you arrive at the port/pier.

When disembarking at the end of your cruise, do not plan to leave the ship for at least three hours after it docks at your final destination. Customs and Immigration must conduct various inspections before guests are allowed to disembark. The duration of this process varies in each port. please also take into account the time needed at the airport for airline check-in procedures before booking your departing flights.

If you are making independent reservations to fly home after the cruise, please have your travel agent contact Crystal Cruises' Reservations for flight departure guidelines, which vary based on the distance between the pier and the airport.

Boarding & Valuables:
At embarkation ports, the ship is usually available for guest boarding at 3:00pm. The exact embarkation and sailing times are specified on your cruise ticket. Please note that you may not board earlier than the time stated. All guests must carry a government-issued photo identification card in order to embark.

Keep in mind that you must be on the ship at least one hour prior to sailing. Once you are on board, our Six-Star crew welcomes you, assists with your hand luggage and shows you to your stateroom. Your luggage is delivered to your stateroom.

Valuables
While in transit to and from the ship, personal items and valuables such as jewelry, medication, tickets, passports and visas should be packed with your hand luggage and kept wit you at all times. Once on board, each stateroom and penthouse is equipped with a personal safe. Because you must assume full responsibility for valuables kept in your stateroom, we recommend that items of special value be placed in the complimentary safe-deposit boxes at the Reception Desk.

Clothing Suggestions:
Throughout the day, our guests wear a casual mix of active resort wear. Dining room attire is casual during the day; however swimsuits are not appropriate. If you do not wish to change for an afternoon meal, alfresco dining on deck is available.

For days in port, be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes. Check with your travel agent for special items you might want to pack for your destination and the time of year you are traveling.

Each evening on a Crystal cruise has a specific dress code, which applies to all public areas of the ship after 6:00pm. Guests find that the occasional formal evenings create a special atmosphere in contrast to the other more casual evenings on board. The three codes of attire are casual, informal and formal. Typically, 10- to 14-day cruises have three formal nights. The number of informal nights is usually based on the number of days at sea, and casual nights are based on days in port and the time of departure.

Formal Evening Attire
We recommend evening dresses and gowns of fashionable length for ladies, and a tuxedo, dinner jacket or dark suit and tie for gentlemen.

Informal Evening Attire
Informal attire is appropriate for most evenings on board. For ladies, evening dresses, cocktail dresses or pantsuits are suitable. For gentlemen, we suggest a jacket and slacks; ties are optional.

Casual Evening Attire
On casual evenings, a more relaxed attire is accepted, such as casual dresses and pantsuits for ladies, and sports shirt and slacks for gentlemen. Ties and jackets are not required.

Guest Immigration Form:
Guests must take full responsibility for securing the required travel documents at least one month prior to departure. Failure to comply may result in refusal of passage by Customs and Immigration authorities.

Passports / Visas:
Guests must take full responsibility for securing the required travel documents at least one month prior to departure. Failure to comply may result in refusal of passage by Customs and Immigration authorities.

Visa information may also be obtained through the local embassy or consulate of the country you will be visiting. It is your responsibility to obtain all necessary visas. Visas must be obtained regardless of whether you plan to go ashore or remain on board while in ports which require visas. Everyone must be cleared by local Immigration authorities upon arrival in port, regardless of the length of the ship's call.

International guests should contact their travel agent for details on passport and visa requirements. Please note that failure to comply with requirements may result in refusal of passage by authorities.

Onboard Guest Services will provide a Release and Indemnity Form to those guests who will be bringing onboard oxygen equipment. These forms must be returned to Onboard Guest Services in their entirety two weeks before the cruise begins. Due to storage limitations, we can only allow two guests per cruise to bring onboard oxygen equipment.
