Boarding / Embarkation

Passenger Boarding

We’re sailing from Port Canaveral in Orlando, Florida. You will need to have your cruise documents and government-issued photo ID (driver’s license or passport) ready when arriving at the Port’s security checkpoint. For information about parking at the port, directions, or other port questions, please visit the Port Canaveral website: https://www.portcanaveral.com/Cruise

Passenger boarding details will be announced closer to our sail date!

Needed Travel Documents

Passports are not required, but are strongly recommended. If you choose not to bring a passport, you must bring TWO forms of identification: 1) an original, raised-seal, state-issued (not hospital issued) birth certificate AND 2) a driver’s license. The two documents must have matching names. If for some reason the names do not match (ex., marriage, divorce, etc.), you will need a copy of a legal document(s) explaining why (ex., marriage certificate, divorce decree, etc.). Any discrepancies may result in delayed or denied boarding.

Important Reminders for a Smooth Embarkation!

  • Keep identification and cruise documents handy. Put your passport and SetSail Pass in your carry-on bag. Do not pack them in your luggage. You will need to produce these documents several times before boarding your ship.
  • Assist security. Heightened security measures at the Port help to ensure your safety. Please cooperate with security personnel to expedite boarding.
  • Tag your luggage. All luggage should have a cruise line tag attached indicating your name and stateroom number. Porters outside the cruise terminal can provide tags and help fill them out. Please be sure to tip your porter!
  • Carry valuables. Carry on any valuables, breakables, personal items and medications, along with your passport and cruise documents.

Assistance Boarding the Ship

If you need assistance boarding the ship, please notify us in advance so we may request to have a Royal Caribbean staff member to provide wheelchair assistance. Please be aware that once you are on board the ship there are no wheelchairs available for passenger use. If you would like to have a wheelchair or scooter to use during the cruise, you may bring your own or rent one from an approved wheelchair and scooter rental provider:

Non-folding wheelchairs and scooters will only fit in Handicap Accessible cabins. If you are not in an accessible cabin, your wheelchair must fold. Wheelchairs left in the hallway are considered hazards and will be removed by the ship’s crew. See Wheelchairs Onboard

What Passengers Think

This was my 5th RLC out of 6 and will be on the next one in 2019. It is the only way to do a cruise and one of the best ways to have an over the top rock ‘n roll experience. There are three venues with shows going on from 10 am to past 12 midnight – every day! Once you’re done for the night, the convenience of your cabin is just steps away. The RLC lineup speaks for itself. There is so much talent, legends and upcoming rockers, on the ship! The people, your fellow rockers, are all there for the same reason – rock ‘n roll! Don’t be surprised if you run into a few rock stars on the elevator or just hanging out watching a show.

My husband and I took a chance and booked our first ever cruise in December 2011 after listening to a radio commercial about a cruise with ZZ Top, George Thorogood and John Kay playing and cruising with us (among many other great bands!). This was “Woodstock on Water”! We have been on every one since and have made many new friends who we correspond with throughout the year and look forward to seeing every year. There should be a different word than “Cruise” to describe this because it does not compare to a standard cruise by any means. Seeing- greeting-hugging-taking pictures with so many of our idols – PRICELESS!! Pam and the NAHA staff do an outstanding job and we always book as soon as each cruise booking opens – no need to wait to see who will be rockin’ us! If you like classic and southern rock and have not booked this cruise, do not wait or you’ll miss out. It sells out earlier every year. (Love to all the Dfers and FB Rock Legends Cruise Fans and FB Rock Legends Cruise Party’ers!)
