Train's Sail Across the Sun cruise returns for a 7th edition! Join us February 17-21, 2023 as we sail from Miami to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic on Norwegian Pearl. Join the pre-sale now so you don't miss your chance to sail!
Joining the pre-sale is like virtually saying "I've got to be on this ship!" And getting involved in the pre-sale is easy! Join at sailacrossthesun.com/presale.
All Sail Across the Sun 2020 guests are automatically included and do not need to sign up for the pre-sale.
You can book a stateroom at or after your booking time, and you get early access before we go on sale to the general public.
What's an Earliest Booking Time?
It’s just our more fun way of saying “Tuesday at 2:45pm” or “Wednesday at 11:00am.” But really, it’s just what it sounds like! Your Earliest Booking Time (or EBT, since we’re all old friends now) is your first chance to book your stateroom. We spread them out over several days to provide you the best possible guest service experience during the booking process.
Sail Across the Sun 2020 alumni will be given the first chance to book!
This group will be automatically assigned and emailed an EBT. Booking times are assigned in order, sorted by most times on Sail Across the Sun, then by order of booking last year. Note that EBTs will be spread throughout several days so that we may provide you the best possible guest service experience as you make your reservation.
Sail Across the Sun 2020 Cancelled Guests will be given a chance to book after 2020 alumni.
This group will also be automatically assigned and emailed an EBT. Booking order is determined by the date you booked your cancelled 2020 reservation.
Alumni that missed Sail Across the Sun 2020 will be given a chance to book next.
This group must join the pre-sale and booking order is determined by number of Sail Across the Sun sailings, number of Sixthman events, most recent year, then by order of booking for their most recent SATS.
New Sail Across the Sun guests who join the pre-sale are the final group to be included.
This group will be assigned a booking time in the order that they signed up. Note that there will be multiple groups of new guests - those who sign up before the initial deadline and then those who sign up after.
Once the pre-sale ends, the general public will be able to book.
Please Note: Being a part of the pre-sale does not guarantee that staterooms will be left for purchase when it’s your time to book. If the event sells out before your booking time arrives, you will be able to join the Waiting List at your booking time.
A full website with complete pricing information will be available before the pre-sale bookings begin.
ALL DEPOSITS AND PAYMENTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. If you wish to protect your investment, we strongly recommend the purchase of travel protection. We've teamed up with Travel Insured to offer two levels of protection: a standard insurance policy and a 50% Cancel for Any Reason add-on policy.
To review both insurance coverage policy details, please go here. If you have cruise insurance and need to cancel for a covered condition, you can make a claim with Travel Insured to recover any lost payments.
Each guest needs a Sixthman profile to create, manage, or be added to a reservation. Create your Sixthman profile.
If you have traveled with Sixthman previously or signed up for the Sail Across the Sun Pre-Sale, you have a profile 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 877-379-9177).
Use your Sixthman profile to sign in throughout the year to update your personal information, make payments, add guests, or make changes to your reservation. To manage your reservation, sign in here.
Remember, at time of booking, you acknowledged 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 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).
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, traveling 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 state certified copy of a Birth Certificate as listed below.
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:
*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 travel.state.gov.
For more information or to obtain a passport application, visit travel.state.gov.
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.
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.
State certified, U.S. Birth Certificates only, most of which say 'Certified Copy.' Photo copies are not valid. Color, size, layout and flowery-but-official-looking-border on certificate may vary from state to state.
Do not bring your hospital certificate. If it says 'this is not a legal document.' Then it's not a legal document. We like you but we don't want to see your feet.
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!

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.
