If she changed her name and it isn't the same as on her birth certificate, she should bring it just in case. The name on your Drivers License should match the name on your birth certificate.

I never could figure out why women feel the necessity to change their names when they get married, it just causes lots of problems like this.

The only reason I could see Carnival asking for a marriage license is because a new bride has changed her name and it doesn't match the one on the driver's license or passport. Other than that, I doubt that Carnival would give a rap.

Self-appointed moralists haven't succeeded in bullying the cruise industry to the extent that the cruise industry would require unmarried adults of the opposite genders sharing the same quarters to produce certificates of matrimony in order to board ship, or force cruise lines to assume that three or more adults sharing cabin space are planning hanky-panky. I doubt that they ever will.

We went on two cruises last year and although I did bring it, no one asked for it and I did not have to produce it.

My B.C. and my drivers license do not have the same last name and I was never asked for or was it even suggested that I bring a marriage license. I thought the only time they wanted to see a marriage license was if the bride and/or groom were not old enough otherwise to cruise without someone over 25 in the room. I have since applied for a passport so I guess I won't have to consider this on my next cruise.

I say, take whatever is required so you don't miss your ship.
Enjoy your cruise!

My mom was told to bring her marriage license to show the change of name. because her drivers license doesn't match her birth certificate.

Just cruised last week on the Victory. Brought the marriage license, but wasn't asked for it. None of the married females in our party (8 of us) were asked for a marriage license.

I have been on 4 cruises w/ Carnival and have #5 bookd for April. I have never been asked to produce a marriage certificate. The only thing I can think of is if your drivers license of ID still has your old name and you booked the cruise under your married name. As someone stated, if they tell you to bring it, then bring it for safety's sake. I just don't see the rationale.

This isn't quite the same thing, but when we went on the Glory a few weeks ago, my uncle's name had been misspelled by the cruise line itself and they still let him through even though his name on the books and the name he had on documents weren't the same. Its good to take precautionary measures, but carnival is usually forgiving. Except in extreme circumstances.

You be able to get a copy of the marriage certificate at the office of vital records in the town that she was married in if that is at all possible. I know that foe most people say you do not need it but if you can get it and it can save you hassel then why not do it, beats missing the ship if they do ask for it. Just my opinion.

My passport only has my maiden name on it and so I always keep a certified copy of my marriage license paper clipped inside my passport just in case. If your sister was married in the area she now resides, it should be as simple as a quick trip down to the courthouse to get an "official" copy of her license (It has to have a raised seal on it). She simply needs to be able to have a documented papertrail of the name change, and it is my understanding that they can deny you boarding if your documents are not in order and if you do not have documentation explaining the name changes. She could take a chance, but if she has 20 days until her cruise, hopefully that will be enough time to get it and honestly it isn't worth taking the risk of being turned away at the port. Best wishes for a great cruise to both of you.
