Sailing from Miami on Norwegian Jade

Frequently Asked Questions

What is The KISS Kruise VIII?

The KISS Kruise is back for an eighth mission at sea and we want YOU to join us for our next rock 'n roll adventure! We're setting sail from Miami on Norwegian Jade, October 31 to November 5, 2018. Come one, come all you salty sailors of the KISS Navy!

How can I participate in the pre-sale?

Getting involved in the pre-sale is easy! Register at thekisskruise.com/presale.

Registering for the pre-sale is like virtually saying "I've got to be on this ship!" Those who register will be emailed an Earliest Booking Time after full festival details are announced. You can book a cabin at or after your Earliest Booking Time, before we go on sale to the general public.

Please Note: Being a part of the pre-sale does not guarantee that cabins will be left for purchase when it’s your time to book.

How is the booking order determined during the pre-sale?

The KISS Kruise 2017 alumni will be given the first chance to book. This group will be automatically assigned and emailed an Earliest Booking Time. Earliest Booking Times are assigned in order, sorted by most times on The KISS Kruise, then by order of booking last year. Note that Earliest Booking Times will be spread throughout several days so that we may provide you the best possible guest service experience as you make your reservation.

Alumni that missed The KISS Kruise 2017 are next. This group must register for the pre-sale and booking order is determined by number of The KISS Kruise sailings, number of Sixthman events, most recent year, then by order of booking for their most recent The KISS Kruise.

New The KISS Kruise guests who register for the pre-sale are the final group to be included. This group is randomized before earliest booking times are assigned.

Please Note: Being a part of the pre-sale does not guarantee that cabins will be left for purchase when it’s your time to book.

What is a Sixthman Username?

Each guest needs a Sixthman Username to create, manage, or be added to a reservation. Create your username while registering for the pre-sale.

If you have traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the The KISS Kruise VIII Pre-Sale, you have a username and will not need to create one.  If you don't know your username, you can recover it here. You can also contact us and we will be happy to look it up for you (try our live chat feature or call us at 877-379-9183).

Use your Sixthman Username to login throughout the year to update your personal information, make payments, add guests, or make changes to your reservation. To manage your reservation, sign in using your Sixthman Username here.

What type of identification will I need to board the ship?

At time of booking, you acknowledge that the laws that regulate the necessary travel documentation are subject to change and that it is your responsibility to be aware of what is required for travel.

View the latest information from Norwegian at www.ncl.com/traveldocs.  Below are recommendations based on the current U.S. government policy. This information could be updated without notice.

Please note that the name on your ticket must match the name on your passport or you will need to provide an original copy of proof of change of name (marriage license, etc).

U.S. Citizens

Sixthman highly recommends all guests travel with a passport valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel. Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens* taking cruises that begin & end in the same U.S. port, travelling with a passport enhances your disembarkation experience, as delays may be expected upon your return to the U.S. if you do not have one. Additionally, passports make it easier for you to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port should you miss your scheduled port of embarkation, or need to fly back to the U.S. for emergency reasons. If you do not have a passport you can use an original or suitable quality copy of a Birth Certificate as listed below.

Starting January 22, 2018 you will need an alternate ID to FLY if you have a driver’s license or ID issued by any of the following states:
Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington
Please note that ID requirements for cruise travel have not changed. Review up to date ID requirements for cruise travel HERE.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) allows U.S. citizens (including children) sailing on cruises that begin and end in the same U.S. port to travel with one of the following WHTI compliant document:

  • Valid U.S. Passport
  • Passport Card
  • Enhanced Driver's License (EDL)
  • Original or state certified copy of a Birth Certificate*
  • Certificate of Naturalization*
  • Trusted Traveler Program Membership Card, e.g., Nexus Card, Sentri Card or Fast Card*


*A government-issued photo ID is also required for all guests, including children 16 and over. For more information, a complete list of WHTI-compliant documents or to obtain a passport application, visit www.travel.state.gov.

Non-U.S. Citizens

All guests must carry a valid passport, and if necessary, a multiple entry visa is required for entry into the United States (i.e. B-2 Visitors Visa), or a visa waiver. Please be sure to check with the proper agencies and authorities (such as your local immigration office) before you sail because we can't board you without the proper documents. Travelers from the 38 Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries* must have a machine-readable passport to enter the U.S. without a visa. All VWP travelers are required to obtain an electronic travel authorization prior to boarding a carrier to travel by air or sea to the U.S. under the VWP.

If you are not a US Citizen and are uncertain that you have the correct documentation please call US Immigrations at 1-800-375-5283 to be sure your identification will be satisfactory.

Alien Residents of the United States holding an Alien Registration Card (ARC or "Green Card") (Form I-551) may travel to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda (see Visa Restrictions on Bermuda) and the Caribbean with just their valid ARC and Proof of Identity. However, it is recommended that these guests also carry their passports from their country of citizenship if available. In some instances, ARC holders may still be required to have sailing permits and/or visas to enter countries Norwegian Cruise Line visits in these areas. Please note that travel anywhere else in the world requires a valid passport from the country you are a citizen of and subsequently subjects you to any documentation, visa and health requirements of all countries visited.


What if I do not have proper identification?

There is no Jedi Mind Trick around this, you MUST have proper identification to be permitted to board the ship. If you arrive at port without proper identification, while Sixthman will assist you in contacting the appropriate agencies, we cannot guarantee that you can successfully attain proper identification from the port, and this may result in being denied boarding without compensation. And this makes us sad.

Can Sixthman book my hotel, airfare, rental car or shuttles?

We realize that your vacation begins the moment you book your cabins and we wish we could look after your entire journey.  However, the only part of your trip we can truly impact is the part that happens when you step on the ship.  In years past, we have tried to manage the experience with hotels, airlines, rental cars, shuttles and we just can’t get them to care like we do.  We will collect as much data as we can and refer you to hotels, airlines, rental cars, and shuttles so that you can make your own choice.  We will see you on the ship and put our energy into making it the greatest vacation you have ever had!

When should I plan to arrive and depart from Miami?

When booking flights we recommend that you arrive in Miami no later than 12:00pm, or in Ft. Lauderdale no later than 11:00am on October 31. Return flights should be arranged to leave Miami after 12:00pm on November 5, or leave Ft Lauderdale after 1:00pm.

**Please allow additional time for customs clearance for international flights.

How do I get to the Port of Miami?

Taxi Service

Taxicabs are available at all cruise terminals. The fare between the Miami International Airport and Port of Miami is currently a flat rate of $24. For other destinations, the cab fare is $2.40 upon entering the taxi and $2.40 per mile thereafter.

Norwegian Shuttle Transfers

NCL offers shuttle service from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale Airport to the Miami port, as well as return shuttle service. These transfers can be purchased after you have received your reservation number (approximately 4 weeks prior to sailing). Transfers reserved more than ten days before sailing 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 at a slighter higher rate of $20 per person for MIA and $25 per person for FLL.

For more information about Norwegian Shuttle Transfers, please call their Reservations Department at 800-327-7030. You'll need to make sure to have your reservation number and flight information available to purchase the transfers.

Parking

Parking is available in facilities located in front of individual cruise terminals. No reservations are required to park at the Port of Miami. Long-term parking for a regular vehicle occupying a single space is $20 per day. Short-term parking is $7.00 if you are coming to see someone off, but is not intended for overnight parking. All Cruises in the current itineraries would fall under Long Term Parking.
