Default Passport for Carnival Spirit

A group of 16 of us are sailing on the maiden voyage of the Spirit, thru the Panama Canal, in April 2001. Just received a call from our T/A advising passports are necessary for this cruise. Since it takes 4-6 weeks to receive your passport, I thought I would give a heads-up to anyone on the boards who might be joining us. Bon Voyage.

Hi Binkey,
If anyone you are cruising with doesn't have a passport, here is a link to go about getting them. We were able to get ours in 2 weeks in August 2 years ago, I guess it just depends on how busy they are?? Be sure to let us all know about Spirit when you get back!

Thanks so much for the link Donna! Fortunately only one of us needs a new passport, but we just got lucky. Will definitely post a review once I return.

Donna~

Our T/A told us that it would be ok to get an official birth certificate and bring that along rather than a passport. Will this work? Please let me know. Our cruise in on May 27th.

Thanks!

Hi Dori,
I noticed a previous post that is going on Spirit through the canal and they were told to have passports, don't know if this is something new? As far as I know, if you are cruising in the caribbean, your birth cirtificate and a picture drivers license is all you will need. If you think you may travel more in the future, I recommend going ahead and just getting passports, they are just so much more easy to travel with. May be a good idea to double check with your travel agent.

Here is a link to some information about passports, hope this will help:
