Default Military ID question

My brother and I are leaving on a cruise in March. He will be using his Military ID as a form of ID. I know that it is accepted but should he try to get his birth certificate. He doesn't have a passport and will basically be coming from Iraq to the cruise. I am doing most of the leg work and am just looking for the fastest and least time consuming method.

His military ID is enough because it proves he's a US citizen.

Matt---
You may want to check into that with the cruise line.
No offense to Phoebe, but a military ID does not prove you are a US citizen. You can have a green card and be in our military.

While a US Military ID card does not prove his citizenship, (indeed we do hav a number of people in our military that are not US Citizens), it does prove he has a right to be in the USA and is sufficent. Now the Cruiseline may want something because of the foriegn port requirements but you need to check with them on that. My son used his ID but also had his BC with him.

My brother used his military ID for his honeymoon back in April, 2002. He brought what he thought was his birth certificate, and when Carnival told him it was not his birth certificate (it was the form from the hospital) he used his miliary ID and had no problem. In fact, he was no longer in the military and he could still use it for Carnival.

Alrighty then here's ALL the info from Carnivals own website.

Travel Documentation



Proper travel documentation is the responsibility of the guest and is required at embarkation and throughout the cruise. Guests traveling without proper documentation will not be allowed to board the vessel, and will not be refunded the cruise fare.

Documents must be presented at the time of embarkation.

United States citizens need at least one of the following

• A passport (valid or expired for less than 10 years)

• An original birth certificate and photo I.D.

• A state-issued certified copy of a birth certificate from the

Department of Health and Vital Statistics and photo I.D.

• A U.S. Military ID (no dependent IDs)

• Valid, unexpired U.S. Multiple Re-Entry Visa, if applicable

• Aliens eligible to apply for admission under the Visa Waiver Pilot Program must have a valid unexpired passport

• Original Naturalization papers

U.S. Permanent Residents need:

• A valid Permanent Resident Card

Canadian citizens need at least one of the following:

• A valid passport

• An original birth certificate or certified copy of a birth certificate and photo I.D.

Non-U.S. citizens need:

• A valid passport

• A valid, unexpired U.S. Multiple Re-Entry Visa, if applicable

Non-U.S. citizens eligible to apply for admission under the Visa Waiver Pilot Program must still have a valid, unexpired passport.

For sailings calling on Canadian ports of call, certain foreignnationals must obtain a Canadian visa in addition to the multiple-entry visa.

For sailings calling on Bermuda, U.S. Alien Residents will need a valid passport (or a birth certificate and official photo ID) in addition to their Alien Resident Card.

Non-U.S. citizens must contact the appropriate consulates, U.S. Embassy and U.S. Immigration office to inquire about necessary travel documentation. Carnival assumes no responsibility for advising guests of Immigration requirements. All Non-U.S. citizens and U.S. Permanent Residents must surrender their passport and/or Permanent Resident cards at time of embarkation. These documents will be returned upon completion of the Immigration inspection.

Guest planning to debark in Mexico for more than 24 hours must obtain a Mexican Tourist Card from either a travel agent or a Mexican consulate prior to their departure. Additionally, guests debarking with children must have a notarized affidavit from any absent parent indicating permission to travel with the accompanying adult.

In addition to the above requirements, all guests 16 years of age or older, must provide an official photo I.D. It is important that guest names on travel documents (passport, Permanent Resident card, birth certificates, etc.) be identical to those on the cruise and airlines tickets. If not, proof of name change (i.e., a marriage license) OR a valid driver’s license or government issued photo ID (i.e., U.S. Military ID) must be presented.
