Frequently Asked Questions

Ingress at Sea II

Is it possible to play while in port?

Yes! While we are not an official Niantic Mission Day (yet) we will have mission banners in each port as well as an abbreviated mission for those who wish to enjoy longer excursions.  Make sure you check with your provider to ensure you have international service prior to departure.  Many US domestic plans allow you to utilize your data overseas for a daily fee.   If you are a non US resident, sim cards may be available in port (or more easily) often times fellow Ingressors will be willing to hotspot you.

Can I purchase the Ingress at Sea II cruise through any other company?

No. If you were to purchase the cruise through any other company, you would not be able to participate in the private onboard group activities.

Do I need a passport or visa?

US Citizens require a passport book with a minimum of 6 months validity post the return of your sailing and the corresponding visa required for entry and exit from the country.

It is important that the name on your reservation be exactly as it is stated on your passport or other official proof of nationality. If your name has changed since your document was issued (e.g., marriage or divorce), it is required that you update the document with the new name or provide an official supporting document (e.g., a state, county or province issued marriage license, divorce decree or legal name change document) of the name change. All documents must be the original or a notarized copy. Additionally, if you are using an identification (e.g., driver's license) and a citizenship document ( e.g., birth certificate), then BOTH documents must match the name on your reservation. Otherwise, it may result in delay or possible denial of boarding.

For International Sailings - Non-US Citizens will require a passport with a minimum of 6 months validity post the return of your sailing and the supporting visa for entry and exit from the country, if applicable.

Yes, Royal Caribbean works with cellular networks to provide the ability to connect your device through "cellular at sea". These roaming rates to utilize your device are determined by your cellular provider. Prior to your sailing, it is recommended to contact your cellular provide for more information on these rates and special packages available.

Where can we smoke on the ship?  Can I smoke on my verandah?

For the comfort and enjoyment of our guests, our ships are designated as non-smoking; however, we recognize that some of our guests do smoke. Therefore, to provide an onboard environment that also satisfies smokers, we have designated certain areas of the ship as smoking areas.

Cigarette, cigar, e-cigarette and pipe smoking is permitted in designated outdoor areas. To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted, guests will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays that are provided for use. Outdoor areas near restricted areas, food venues, and kids play areas and pools will not allow smoking.

All Royal Caribbean ships are equipped with North American standard, 110 volts AC and standard European 220/230 volts AC outlets.

Are there places to plug in my phone, ipad, etc.?

Yes, there are outlets in each cabin for both domestic and EU appliances. Pack an EU charger or travel adapter if you'd like to charge in public areas.

Preparing to sail

How do I check-in for my cruise?

Online Check-In opens 90 days before your cruise and must be completed no later than 3 days prior to sailing. Completing the Online Check-In process for all the guests in your reservation will save you from having to fill out forms at the pier.

Royal Caribbean International requires guests to be checked in no later than 60 minutes prior to the scheduled sailing time*. Guests arriving late will not be permitted to sail. This supports government regulations in some ports that require cruise lines to submit a departure manifest 60 minutes prior to sailing. Guests are requested to complete Online Check-In no later than 3 days prior to the cruise in order to expedite the pier check-in process. 

Once you have completed the Online Check-In process, you will receive a SetSail Pass. It indicates that you successfully completed the check-in process for you and those guests listed on your SetSail Pass. If your cruise documents are available, you can access them through your reservation dashboard in your My Cruises Account. If your documents are not yet available, check back soon. You should also receive an e-mail when your documents are ready.

What documents are required to do my online check-in?

In order to complete Online Check-In successfully, you will need the following:

  • Passport for each guest you are checking in online.
  • Return flight information or travel plans.
  • Onboard Expense Account Information (i.e. credit card and the reservation informaton that is authorized to charge against the account.)
  • You will also need to establish an Onboard Expense Account with either a credit card number or cash.
What clothes should I pack?

Light, casual clothing or “resort casual” is the norm during the day. Don’t forget your swimwear, cover-up, sunglasses, and sun hat. If you plan to participate in yoga, Pilates or other fitness classes, we suggest sneakers and loose cotton clothing or other comfortable attire. Athletic shoes are required for fitness activities. Average temps range from 55 to 67 during the day in these ports. 

Your preference of button downs, pants, capris, skirts or dresses are recommended for smart casual dinner attire. Along with dress shoes, fashion sandals, flats, or comfortable heels. After 6:00 p.m., jeans, t-shirts, shorts, and bare feet are discouraged in the ships' public areas.

The ship has two gala nights for optional evening attire at dinner.  Typically, on these two nights, there is a range from business casual to formal wear. 

Although all cabins are air conditioned and individually controlled, we are not able to control the temperature in the public spaces such as the dining room and lecture rooms, which may be cool, so a scarf and sweater or light jacket is recommended.

Be sure to pack toiletries and incidentals such as conditioner, lotion, and sunscreen along with electronic cables and chargers. We also suggest bringing a travel electric converter adapter for charging in public spaces. While blow dryers are available in each cabin, you may want to bring along a curling iron. 

What if I have a special occasion to celebrate?

We love to help you celebrate! If you have a birthday, anniversary, etc, please let your group agent know at least 30 days prior to sailing and we will notify the cruise line of your special date and they will deliver something special for you for dessert one night in the dining room. Special occasion packages are available for purchase and can be viewed on your Royal Caribbean account. 

Does Royal Caribbean have wheelchair accessible cabins? 

Our accessible staterooms are designed for guests with mobility disabilities and other disabilities that require the use of the features associated with accessible staterooms. Accessible staterooms range from 159 square feet to 298 square feet, offer a five-foot turning radius in sleeping areas, bathrooms and sitting areas for easy maneuverability.

Accessible staterooms are held for people with disabilities until all other non-accessible staterooms in that category are reserved. Upon reserving an accessible stateroom, we require our guests acknowledge the need for the accessible stateroom by completing a Guest Special Needs Form.

If a guest is booked in an accessible stateroom and they do not have a mobility disability or other disability that requires the use of the features that are provided in the accessible stateroom, they may be moved at any time to another non-accessible stateroom in order to accommodate a guest with a disability.

Please note we investigate and take action on potential misuse of accessible staterooms where there is good cause to believe that such staterooms have been booked fraudulently.
