Because we went there after the Bahamas. Same as showing passports at the end of your cruise to get back in the country.

But on a close circuit cruise if you are a US citizen, you don't need a passport to get in the country, just a raised seal birth certificate and drivers license.

Maybe it was your excursion? Because we went to Key West and, at the time, none of us had passports.

Edit to add. Raised seal birth certificates worked too! Just we needed our paperwork.

What did you use for them to sign with? Sharpies?

EDIT: Doh! Just saw your replies. Sharpies it is.
Great idea... Love the plate

Ty for this tip

Very good to know! I will have to make sure my sister gets her passport before next July, just in case.

rubber door stop to hold the door open when moving luggage in and out
magnetic clip to keep current navigator on the back of door (we always seem to misplace it otherwise)
high lighter to mark activities in the navigator
bathroom air freshener
printed address labels for our disembarking tags
one dollar bills to tip room service etc.
thank you cards to write a note with our tip cards and for our table mates
suction cup hooks to hang in the bathrooms and closet doors
candy/treats to give our room host each day
disposable shower cap, tooth brush and razor
pre-written address labels for postcards and postcard stamps
travel mugs and large zip lock bags for those trips to the beverage and goofy fast food in the morning

We order room service the first night, getting a coffee carafe, container of sugar packages, carton of milk, salt and pepper and wine glasses. We keep all in the cabinet for use during the entire cruise. We usually get a bowl of fruit too and use the empty bowl to dump our pocket stuff in one place when we come in the room.. Husband seems to misplace items, i.e. pins, lip balm, sun glasses if we don't have a designated place I can move them to.
Thank you! These are most of my favorite -- now all in one place!
