A lot of people like to get their passports stamped in as many countries as they can, just for fun. Is it possible to get your passport stamped in, say, St. Maarten, even though you don't need a passport to enter if you're on a cruise ship that goes there?
How about St. Thomas (a U.S. territory) Will they accomodate us "stamp collectors"?
We got our passports back in Europe two years ago, because I remember having to show it--along with cruise card--to enter ship terminal at Athens and other ports. In fact I can't remember a cruise in recent times when they've been held.
Also, St. Thomas would simply be a US stamp, wouldn't it? No glamor there.
My current passport's five or six years old and it's the lamest one I've ever had as far as stamps are concerned. Most places I've been haven't bothered lately--although I suppose it's true that most would do it if you asked. Also, in our "new world" they may start getting more serious about it generally.
