Travel Documentation

We highly recommend all guests travel with a Passport that is valid for at least six months beyond Jam Cruise 18. Although a Passport is not required for U.S. citizens cruising in and out of PortMiami, traveling with a Passport eases your experience by ensuring boarding and avoiding delays. Passports also allow for travel back to the U.S. during Jam Cruise 18, in case of the unexpected. Failure to possess the required travel documents may prevent you from being able to travel; in such event, no refunds shall be provided to you. Be sure the name on your ticket matches the name on your Passport. If you have questions regarding your travel documents, you should contact Customs and Border Protection.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Jam Cruise has a strict zero tolerance policy. You will be embarking Jam Cruise in PortMiami and passing through security run by Customs and Border Protection, a division of Homeland Security. Your person and your luggage can and will be searched. Forget about your right to privacy, you are passing through a port where all local and federal laws apply and are strictly enforced. Every person and each piece of luggage will be inspected by dogs trained to detect explosives and contraband. Anyone found to be violating the law and/or in possession of illegal substances or prohibited items (weapons, illegal controlled substances, etc) will be arrested and banned from all future events.
