Martinique Now Requires a Passport From Cruise Passengers

By ,   September 29, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

Cruisers planning on visiting Martinique will now be required to bring a valid passport in order to disembark the ship. A lot of Caribbean islands don't require passports as long as the voyage begins and ends at a US seaport, but Martinique will be an exception.

Carnival Cruise Line has sent out a letter to passengers who are booked on sailing to Martinique. The company sent out the following email to guests who are booked on the November 9 voyage on Carnival Pride warning them about the new requirement:

“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.”

CruiseMapper currently provides cruise schedules and information for 3 Martinique ports - Fort-de-France, Les Anses d'Arlet, and Le Marin.
