    Default Finally, a cruise ship originating from santo domingo

    IT'S ABOUT TIME......

    MSC Cruises is having a 7 night cruise originating in Santo Domingo on Wednesday December 19 thru Wednesday December 26. The name of the ship is the "LIRICA" and the starting price is $629. U.S per person.
    You will actually be on the ocean liner Christmas Eve and Christmas day.

    Itinerary as follows......

    Wednesday, December 19, 2012 Depart from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
    Thursday, December 20, 2012 La Romana, Dominican Republic
    Friday, December 21, 2012 Philipsburg, Netherlands Antilles

    Tuesday, December 25, 2012 Road Town, Virgin Islands

    I haven't posted the travel agency's contact info because that would be construed as advertising.

    And with that itinerary you should not need a USA visa.
    Lots of "Sankys" & "Sankyettes" can have a nice trip!

    You just stay on board.... no need for a visa if you don't "land".

    I expect (hope) the cruise line factored that in... the visa deal

    Here is the fine print requiring pasenger to obtain all necessary visas

    12. TRAVEL DOCUMENTS The Passenger shall comply with any governmental travel requirements, laws or regulations for all ports of call on the Cruise Ship's itinerary for both Immigration, Customs and Vessel Security purposes. All Passengers must present for inspection the Ticket and Contract, a valid Passport and any visa, entry or exit permit, required by any port on the Cruise Ship's itinerary. Passenger is responsible for checking with the embassy or consulate for every country to be visited on the planned itinerary to determine what visas or other travel documentation are necessary. The Company reserves the right to deny boarding to any Passenger who lacks the necessary proof of citizenship or other required travel documentation valid for the entire duration of the scheduled voyage. Guest who fail to have the required documents will be denied boarding and such guests shall not be entitled to any refund nor shall MSC Cruises have any further liability to such guests. For your safety and convenience, Passengers are advised to check with the U.S. Department of State or their local government to review any travel advisories which may have been issued for any ports on the cruise itinerary.

    Doesn't work like that on a cruise. Ships purser holds all passports. Immigration comes on board and clears all the passengers documents in pursars office. No immigration to pass on the dock usually, other than a possible check for contraband. The cruise ship won't let you sail unless you have documentation for ALL ports of call.

    When shall we start interviewing prospective travel partners, CCCCCCCC?

    British need not apply...

    Might be a good idea to have somebody prescreen the crush of applicants......

    Perhaps dv8 and SKing can lend a hand?
    We'll need impartial advice.....
