I am traveling in February , this is our first cruise and we don't have passports. Should we consider getting them or are they totally not necessary?

They're really nice just in case. Much like trip insurance, it depends on your comfort level with risk.

If you do not think you will cruise or travel outside of the country much, then you may not need them. However, if you do plan on going on more cruises, it is well worth it. Much easier than carrying original birth certificates. We took my mother on her first cruise to see if she would like it before I got her a passport.

The past 4 years we have been Disney cruising. Fyi when we got off Wednesday and went thru customs when we were disembarking they did request our passports.

Just be aware that if an emergency occurs (sickness, injury or death of someone in your traveling party or someone at home, etc.) and you need to fly home from outside the US, you have to go through the US Embassy. In an emergency situation, you want to be able to book a flight and go, not spin your wheels while dealing with paperwork and bureaucrats.

Personally, we don't cruise without passports or travel insurance. Yeah, it costs a little upfront, but it more than pays for itself in piece of mind. And if you do end up needing one or the other or both, you'll be SO glad you have them.
