That's exactly right. It wasn't Carnival's requirement. Passports are required when flying into any country.
For those who did not have passports, and had to return to the US, Carnival is giving them a full credit for a future cruise.
RCI just waved goodbye, and even said afterwards that passengers will not be receiving credits or refunds.
