We are taking my mom for her 77th birthday on a NYC to Bahamas cruise (NCL Dawn). She has an original birth certificate and a valid state driver's license with photo. Our agent says she should bring a marriage certificate, but the one she has looks not to be from the state of NY, but from the church. Given that its been 40+ years since her marriage, finding an original may be difficult.
Is this necessary or should we try to get her a passport? Our cruise is set for 9/28.
"Technically" she needs proof of her name change which a marrage certificate shows but 'practically' they know and only an idiot would make a fuss over it. Should be no problem at all and on the off chance you get a nutcase at the check in just demand to see a supervisor.
