Took a cruise in May to Mexico with Carnival. I'm married and just took my Birth Certificate and Driver's License. I had no problems with the difference of names. Both doccuments list DOB and of course first name. Iv'e never seen a requirement of marrriage cert. listed on carnival's web site for needed doccuments. Check with Carnival or you TA directly to find out for sure.
its one of those "iffy"things, sometimes customs will ask for the marriage certificate, usually not, but bring it along just in case. If you have the time to get a passport, get it, belive me it is so worth the cost.
No problem there. We just travelled (flight and cruise) as a family, but our ID's were in 3 different names; my maiden name, my husband's name and my son-from-a-previous-marriage's name. No questions asked.
my advice to you would be to take your birth cert., marriage cert and drivers licence (or passport) this way you will be covered with three governement issued documents and should have no problems. my other advice would be to double check the requirements with your cruselines for each port of call in regard to your citizenship status. i work for an airline and we see all sorts of problems. so i would definitely get it from the horses mouth then you know and are sure of any and all requirements.
What do you mean this isn't how they eat onboard?

My TA told me not to worry about the name difference. She used my married name for booking--it's the same on my DL. My BC has my maiden name but she said not to worry--like someone said earlier they know names will change and everything else matches.
