Hi
Can any one tell me if the comment below from the RCI website means that I need more that my passport to board as the green card will be taken from me at the airport.

Non-U.S. Citizens:
Valid passports and visas (when needed) including the original copy of Alien Registration Card (ARC or "green card") and any other travel documentation required because of alien status in the United States or with respect to any country on the itinerary.

Many thanks
Andrew

Please provide more details. Where do you live? Where are you cruising out of? What country are you a citizen of?

I'm not sure why you think your green card will be taken from you at the airport. If you are a non-U.S. citizen living in the U.S. you need your green card at all times. Unless you are leaving the U.S. to board the cruise and not returning to the U.S. after the cruise, in which case I know nothing of the legalities involved. It would seem if you are not returning then your passport should be all you need.

Sorry,
We are from the UK, Crusing out of port Canaveral Oct 14th.
I can remember flying to the US previously and having to fill out a green card/form on the plane which US imigration took off us when we landed.

The "green card" RCI is referring to is a resident alien card for non-U.S. citzens residing in the U.S. All you should need is your UK Passport and any visas required for your cruise.

Yes, we were talking about two different kinds of green cards.
Your passport is sufficient.

As you are from the uk......
you will still have to fill out the green form you mention ( unless you have a visa ) as it is to do with the USA visa waiver scheme but last time I was at gatwick airport they seemed to have some by the check-in desks so you could fill them in if you wanted to before or on the plane.
I'm pretty sure that Dave Beers is correct ( as usual )with his explanation of the green card which as he says will not affect you.....enjoy your cruise.
