Do you need a passport for a cruise? - February 9, 2010, 01:59 AM

Do you need a passport to take a cruise?

My other question, is if I wanted to vacation somewhere in May, where would be a good place to go where it would be ungodly hot. Im assuming my the cheap rates for Cozumel, Mexico, it must be really damn hot, because its cheap. I dont want to spend a ton of money, but at the same time want a comfortable trip.

If your going to Mexico on a cruise I do believe you need a passport. I can give you an email to a travel agent she hooked up last year to Cancun Mexico all inclusive 800. bucks it was not a cruise though..

It depends where you go? If you are going to the Bahamas, Carribbean, BVI, etc, you are going to need a passport for most islands

Yep. I got the passport card. You can use that to travel to Canada and Mexico. The islands are good too so long as it's by boat. If you are going to fly anywhere, get your standard passport.

Took a Caribbean cruise last new years ('09). Only needed my passport to go through customs on the way in and out. Otherwise, everybody was issued a ship ID card that would let you into the port.

You need a passport for all cruises. Call the cruise company to be sure, but I've heard they changed the rules so you do need one now

IMO always good to have a valid passport anyway, even if you have no plans to use it.

Backup ID incase you lose your drivers license, etc.....

I was just in Cozumel last September. You'll love the water. You'll need your passport or passport card to leave and enter the U.S.. Please note that the passport card can only be used if you are entering the U.S. from "Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry." You do not need to bring your passport with you when you leave the ship. There should be a safe in your room that you could use to store your passport. All you need is the ship card to get back to the ship. The ship card will be issued to you at check-in after you clear the Customs. Have fun!!

Also you may need it even if going to somewhere that doesn't require it.
Example you don't need one in Aruba but because you go through Cuba we had to have it there.

Well you didn't in 96

You definitely need a passport. The Jones Act prohibits cruise ships from leaving a US port and returning to a US port without visiting a foreighn port first.

If you disembark at the ports, yes. If you never leave the ship... maybe not.

Nope when you get on the cruise ship you're required to show a passport regardless of whether you plan on getting off the ship or not. No passport, no cruise.

When you do get off in the ports, you dont take your passport. Liek someone else said...your "cruise card" is your golden ticket to get back on the ship.

Bingo. It's what I'm using right now. Passport trumps Drivers License everywhere.

And they're good for 10 years!
