As I understand it is not accepted if valid for 6 months or less. I would fill in a form today to get your passport renewed or you will not get to travel.

The obvious answer is to renew it now. You can renew up to nine months before the expiry date without losing anything, your new passport will have 10 years from the expiry date of the old passport.

You normally have to have 6 months still left on your passport. I recently renewed mine for the same reason. It took one week in my case and your new passportr will be dated to 22 Oct 2018 so you dont lose anything.

All answers are actually incorrect. There is no such thing as a 6-monnth rule within the EU. As you are visiting France and Italy on this cruise you will be with in the EU. Italy requires that you passport is valid three months beyond length of stay; and Spain requires that EU nationals are only required to produce evidence of their EU nationality and identity in order to be admitted to any EU Member State. This evidence can take the form of a valid national passport or national identity card. Either is acceptable. Passports held by EU nationals need only be valid upon entry to and exit from Spain.

I'm sorry but you are all incorrect. For Spain your passport just has to be valid - same for any EU country. EU nationals are only required to produce evidence of their EU nationality and identity in order to be admitted to any EU Member State. This evidence can take the form of a valid national passport or national identity card. Either is acceptable. The FCO website states "A valid British passport must be held for entry to and exit from Spain. There is no minimum passport validity requirement but you should ensure that your passport is valid for the proposed period of your stay." The 6-month rule is a myth perpetuated by Travel Agents so they do not have to learn the various rules for each specific country.

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Do You Remember The Cruise?

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you remember the BBC television show that featured singer Jane McDonald and helped launch her television career?Well, whatever you thought are about that, she is currently on our television screens on Channel 5 presenting a new series about cruising. Have you had a chance to watch it yet?If you haven’t, I would recommend that you try to and catch up on the first two programmes – there will be 4 in total.To be honest I though it may be a bit cheesey!But I have to say that I ...
