Passport Information

Passport scrutiny has become more strict as of late. Please check your Passport now for its expiration date. Your Passport must be valid for at least 6 months past your departure date for the last country you visit. Not 5 months and 28 days... but a FULL six months. For our Queen Mary 2 Crossings, that would be 6 months past the sailing date from Southampton... and a bit more just to be safe. If you don't have a full 6 months past your departure date, please renew now. You are solely responsible if you get turned away by Immigration for failing to have an expiration date a FULL 6 months past departure date

This is sure to be a voyage that you will never forget! Don’t miss your chance to experience this magical Jazz Age Transatlantic crossing.
