    Leslie from FL Asked

    Do I need to provide a Dr's note or any other kind of documentation if I'm cruising prior to my 24th week of pregnancy?

    Ahoy, Leslie!

    Having four children over the course of a decade, I did much traveling while pregnant, and since I was the type that looked pregnant from the moment I found out, it seemed I was always proving (or disproving) others' assessments of my condition. To be on the safe side, I highly recommend that you obtain a medical statement from your doctor with how many weeks gestation you are at the time of travel -- and it's probably a good idea to get it notarized as well. Simply tuck the document in with your passport and keep it with you as you embark/disembark.

    More than likely, no one will ask you for your documentation. Yet, it's always a good idea to play it safe than hit a snag when it may be too late to obtain such proof. (Take it from me...I was almost denied boarding a plane once because I had lost my doctor's letter.)

    I hope this helps you plan, and congratulations on your upcoming departure and your arrival -- in that order. It sounds like you have planning a Disney vacation down to an art! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
