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 your passport 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

Vaccination Policy

Vaccination is required for our private group at Ahoy Vintage Cruises for the October crossing with Dandy Wellington.
