Passports

We are going on a Eastern Carrib. cruise on the fantasy next July. Will we need a passport for St Maarten and St Thomas? I have mine but the kids don't.

I was thinking that we won't since its the US Virgin Islands.

St Maarten is not part of the US Virgin Islands. Half of the island is Dutch (St Maarten) and half is French (St. Martin).

Your cruise probably also includes a stop at Castaway Cay, which is in the Bahama's.

Just to be clear, there are both US Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands. Saint Thomas and Saint John (along with Saint Croix) are in the US Virgin Islands.

And St. Maarten is in neither.

OP, to answer your original question, check out this recent thread on passport requirements for "closed loop cruises" (cruises that begin and end in the same US Port).

I got one just for peace of mind, it all depends on how comfortable you are with not having them in case of emergency.
