Princess Cruises' Ruby Princess is sailing a 3 night "sampler" cruise from Auckland this Christmas and a common question is, "Do I need a passport on a domestic cruise that sails around NZ only?" The answer is no, you don't!
Most guests will use their current passport however you only require government issued photo identification. Other than a passport or drivers licence, either an 18+Card (evidence of age document) or Super Gold Card with photo is acceptable.
Minors under 18 years of age may also present an original or certified copy of their birth certificate or a school card with photo.
Guests that are not legal residents of NZ must present their passport. Remember, failure to present the appropriate photo identification at check-in will result in denial of boarding.
Please contact us if you'd like more details on the above or would simply like to know about other close to home cruise options in the future.
