In Texas a parent can get a Texas ID, similar to a drivers license but without the test, for their children. You just need the proper documents such as a birth certificate. Perhaps your state offers something similar.
As previously stated, if you are departing and returning to the same port, a closed loop cruise, you should only need the birth certificate. One other thing to consider is if both parents are not traveling on the cruise, Carnival requires a consent slip giving permission for the children to travel. I don't know the details but if it is something you need you can call Carnival and get the exact information.
