Passport vs. Passport card?
 
I'm going on my first cruise and I was wondering if I need one, both or none. We are booked for November 27,2011 and will be sailing the Western Carribean with Carnival Glory. Our ports of call are Cozumel, Rotan, Belize and Grand Cayman.

Thanks in advance,
The Witvoet's

Get the passport. It will work in any travel situation. The passport card is only good for land crossings from Mexico or Canada. If, for some reason, you are stuck out of the country and need to fly home the passport card will not work. You will need to get a passport.

Get the passport. You won't regret it.

Take care,
Mike

I guess it's worth the extra cost. I am just peeved that the prices went up so much from last year. Oh well, a one time expense....

Better to get a passport or bring your passport because it is more safe that way. I don't know much about passport card although they say that its kinda needed in certain areas or countries only.

Passport regulations
 
Hi! I am also a first time cruiser. We are booking the 9 day Labadee, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas cruise in February. My question is, my original birth certificate has my father's first name, middle INITIAL and last name. Is going to be ok when we send them off to be processed? I don't want any hangups when we start this process. Thanks!
