API is Advanced Passenger Information. This information is required by us, cruise lines, and airlines. What does it include?
- Date of birth
- Country of residence
- Passport number
- Passport expiry date
- Passport issue date
- Passport Country of Issue
- Passport Place of Birth (Town/City)
Next of Kin (note, this cannot be someone who is in your travel party):
- Next of Kin's name
- Relationship to you
- Telephone number
In many instances, this information is required in order for your travel documents to be released. You can add this yourself via the check-in link on the Cruise Line system.
If API is required, we will contact you approximately 30 days prior to departure.
It is your responsibility to add the required information to your booking. Passengers do have to complete their own API themselves.
Visit our Useful Supplier Links for API article to find the link to your cruise line's online manage-my-booking system.
We may be able to help you to complete your API. If you are sailing with MSC or Fred Olsen, and you are struggling to add the API information, you can send your details to our team by emailing email@example.com - don't forget to include your Iglu booking reference number.
