Default Passport Requirements?

According to the link listed below the Dept of Homeland Security has changed their minds about passport requirement for the year of 2006. Is this true?

nc,

I also saw this article in our local paper. They seem to change their minds about once a week!

My best advice is to go ahead and get a passport. You're going to need it eventually, and it makes things go so much easier when you have one.

There is a rumor that the cruise lines may require the passport even if the government does not. Is that true? Also when do the new passports with the electronic strip come out?

NOTE: We will probably go ahead and get the passport.

I emailed my travel agent just the other regarding our upcoming Caribbean cruise in February. She said passports would not be required.
