Default visa requirement for south african citizen

Hi,

We are cruising RCCL Allure to eastern caribbean in September.

My wife is a South African citizen with a multiple entry US visa - according to Bahamas and St. Thomas government websites her US visa should be OK for them. St. Maarten website says she is OK for the Dutch side where we dock, as long as we are gone within 48 hours!

My question is - do you think RCCL will be OK with this at check in (we are going to take print outs of the local websites info), or will they freak out at the sight of a non US/UK passport?

Anyone been in a similar position?

Thanks,
Chin14

I have no first hand experience with getting/needing a visa, BUT what anyone on this board "thinks" is irrelevant. Call RCCL and ask them. As for "freaking out" because of a non US/UK passport, no, I don't think they will freak out. People from all over Europe, Australia, Japan etc. go on cruises out of the US, so the issue per se isn't that your wife has a non-US passport; it's the visa situation. Again, call Royal and ask them.
