Default Birth Cerificate rules

Will a cruiseline accept birth certicate with a madien name.
Example: Smith - Madien name but Jones - married name on Driver Licence.
Do you need marrage licence too? How does it work? Ed

An interesting aside . My wife's first name on her birth certificate is not the same as on every other legal document she has .My parents also each had 2 different first names on legal documents .

No problem mainly because birth certificates are not change to married name. The thing they look for is the birth date being the same. The requirements to apply for a passport even do not require a copy of marriage license. Just make sure to have current state id with.

totally agree with Donna on this one, get a passport, the most acceptable form of id in the world. It is good for 10 years. Think about the possibility of something happening that you have to fly home from a foreign cruise port, you can't if you don't have a passport

My vote is with Lisa and Donna. Get a passport and never worry again. Just remember every 10 years to get it renewed 6 months before it expires.

I think the main thing is that your name on your ID matches your travel reservation. IF it doesn't be prepared to show a document trail which shows that you are the person they are supposed to let on that ship!.


Add me to the list of those who don't have 2 pieces of ID which show the same name. I had to correct a birth date issue with the Quebec Birth Registry (FUN - there was a discrepancy between my birth date and my baptism date ~ add to the fact that religious documents are no longer accepted). Then I have a complicated maiden name, together with the fact that I hyphenated my married name.

.... I always make travel arrangements to match my passport.
