Help first time cruiser

Hi never cruised before I leave on Friday going to Canada Ireland France then the UK my question is do you have to go through customs and passport control at every port you visit? I seen some places say leave your passport on board so this confused me. Also anyone who’s been to Cobh Ireland can let me know what the disembarkation is like for the port of call.

What cruise line?

Oceania sailing on the Marina

We did a cruise that called on cobh, Ireland. Not sure what you mean by disembarkation. If you are just visiting the port, the ship docks and you can walk the town. If you are disembarking the ship and traveling home I not aware of the procedure there. Have a great cruise! Cobh iraeland was a beautiful place.

Make sure you have copies of your passport and leave them in the cabin. Bring your passports with you.
