RCI is requiring passports for cruises returning after Jan 8. So that
makes the rest of the discussion moot for them (I haven't seen
anything from Celebrity, I assume they are doing so as well).


Hi Dillon,

As a matter of clarification, the above is not correct. Royal
Caribbean dropped the passport requirement after the law was changed.
The cruise lines lobbied heavily for this law change.
From Royal Caribbean:


Yeah, I got that fax after I posted it.

But in mid October they did say they were requiring them.


Domestic Sailing Requirements:

U.S. Citizen Passport Requirement

Air Travel

Effective January 8, 2007, passports will be required for all U.S.
citizens flying to or from all international destinations. This
includes all areas of the world in which our ships sail, such as the
Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Asia, Central
and South America.

"Cruise Travel

As early as January 1, 2008, subject to U.S. Government amendment,
passports will be required for all U.S. citizens cruising to or from
all international destinations. This includes all areas of the world
in which our ships sail, such as the Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, the
Caribbean, Mexico, Europe, Asia, Central and South America.
Until that time, the following travel document requirements apply:

International Travel
A valid passport is required; visas are required where they
apply. This includes Europe, Asia, Central and South America.

Domestic Travel
For domestic travel which includes: the Bahamas, Bermuda,
Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico, a passport (valid or expired) is
highly recommended.
In the absence of a passport, a birth certificate (original or
a certified copy), plus a picture ID card issued by a federal, state
or local government agency is required.
A voter registration card or Social Security Card are not
considered to be proof of citizenship.
Children under 16 years of age do not require a picture ID.

Best regards,
Ray
