Top 11 Frequently Asked Questions
1) Do I need a Passport?
Sixthman recommends everyone get a Passport, but U.S. citizens are only required to show proof of citizenship (such as an original or certified copy of a birth certificate) and a government-issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license). U.S. Alien Residents need a valid Alien Resident Card. Canadian citizens must present a valid passport. Non-U.S. citizens need a valid passport and a valid, unexpired U.S. Multiple Re-entry Visa, if applicable. U.S. citizens may present a valid U.S. passport when traveling via air, land or sea between the U.S. and the Western Hemisphere countries.

4) When will I receive our Cruise Documents / Tickets?
All guests will receive a Reservation Number approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the date of your departure date. The Reservation Number email will contain both your CONFIRMATION NUMBER (issued by Sixthman) and your RESERVATION NUMBER (issued by the cruise line) and a link to complete your "E-Documents” and print them out. Each person in the cabin must have his or her own E-Document printed out. These documents are your boarding passes and will be necessary to board the ship.
5) Registering with cruise line?
All guests are required to register with the cruise line to confirm their information prior to boarding the ship. Once you receive your RESERVATION NUMBER from Sixthman (approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the departure date), you can register at the cruise line’s website and reserve Shore Excursions, Spa Appointments, Transportation to & from the port etc. Sixthman will send more details and instructions via email 4 – 6 weeks prior to sailing.
6) When can I purchase shore excursions?
While visiting ports on your cruise itinerary, the cruise line offers a variety of tours and activities to you for an additional fee. Guests can purchase these in advance online to guarantee their spot or they can purchase them onboard the ship. Guests may book online by registering with the cruise line using the following links. You may need your Reservation Number, the Ship Name and/or the date of sailing to login.
7) What time does the ship DEPART on the day of sailing?
Your cruise will depart approximately at 4pm local time on the day of departure and all guests are required to be onboard 2 hours prior to departure time. Please plan to arrive to the port no later than 2pm local time.
What time does the ship RETURN on the day of arrival?
The ship is scheduled to arrive approximately at 8am local time on the day of arrival. Once docked the ship must begin the immigration process of clearing thru Customs & Boarder Patrol Agency. Guests can expect to be able to start getting off the ship at approximately 8:45am local time. We advise all guests to book flights that depart NO EARLIER than 12:00pm local time to allow for delays in arrival.
8) Are there Hotel or Flight discounts?
Guests are encouraged to visit their event website and select “Getting There” to educate themselves on the Hotel and Port locations. Any group hotel rates that Sixthman has secured will be listed there. Sixthman does not secure flights for guests due to the volatility of prices throughout the year. We advise our guests to make their own arrangements to arrive to the ship and we will welcome you and take great care of you once you arrive.
9) Getting to and from the port from the airport?
Ft. Lauderdale Note: All cruisers flying into the Fort Lauderdale Airport and traveling to the Miami Cruise port need to plan for approximately 45 minutes travel time between ports.
Taxis: We've found that Taxis offer the best value and convenience for guests traveling to and from the port to the airport. Rates vary per city, but on average taxis are $24 flat rate (for up to 4 people) while a bus or shuttle is $15-18 per person each way and involves waiting on the bus or shuttle to be full before leaving. Taxis from Ft. Lauderdale airport to the Miami seaport will be approximately $50.
Cruise Line Shuttles: Norwegian offers shuttle service from the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale Airports to the Miami port, as well as return shuttle service. Transfers reserved 10 or more days before the cruise can be purchased for $15 per person each way from MIA and $20 per person from FLL. Transfers reserved at the airport on the day of sailing or on the ship for a return shuttle can be purchased for $20 per person for MIA and $25 per person for FLL. You can purchase a Norwegian transfer tickets once RESERVATION NUMBERS have been issued 4 to 6 weeks prior to sailing by calling Norwegian at 866-931-6743.
For additional options and for sailings NOT on Norwegian please check the event site under the “Getting There” section for more information about shuttles.
10) Are there any Pre-Cruise Activities?
Sixthman does its best to secure a location for guests arriving the evening before to gather and mingle with other cruisers. The pre party is often located at a restaurant or bar close to the port. The exact location and information will be included in your monthly e-mail updates as we get closer to the event. We try to have the emails out between 2 to 4 weeks prior to sailing.
