We did Feb 5th on the Magic. It was our 2nd time using our BC's, and both times we had no issues.

Thanks! My husband and I and our two girls are going on our first one in June and since we don't travel much we didn't want to spend $500 on passports if we didn't need to.

We're sailing in September with family. We're a little older (69 years old) and although we haven't needed a passport for anything other than this cruise, we decided to get them. Should something happen to one of us and we had to fly back to U.S. soil we wouldn't be able to re-enter FL or anywhere in the U.S. without a passport. We probably will never use it again...but better safe than sorry! So looking forward to our FIRST cruise on the Dream with DD, DSIL, DGD, two DGS's, sister and SIL's mom.

We cruised last week on the Magic and 5 out of the 7 of us had their passports. Also, we didn't have travel insurance.

With that being said, for our next cruise I will try and get the other 2 kids their passports and get travel insurance. Not that we needed it for this cruise, everything was perfect. I just stressed about it so much during the last few days leading up to our cruise that I promised myself I would cover everything next time. I worried about every possible scenario.....weather delaying flights, luggage getting lost, kids getting sick on ship.... I am normally a laid back person but after reading posts on the disboards I was completely freaked out!!!

I wasn't as worried about the passports as I was about the trip insurance.

As I said, we are getting the passports to "cover our rears"!!! Should we have to leave the cruise due to illness, etc. and fly back to the U.S., you CAN NOT re-enter without a passport...according to everything I've read. Hopefully it will be an expense that we really didn't need to incur but at our age, I'd rather be prepared!

I have never heard this before. You have to bring marriage certificate too? What if you have one of those passport cards that look like a driver's license, do you need that, your birth certificate and marriage license?

On Disney cruises they have never asked for a marriage certificate. Royal Caribbean did tell me to bring it when I booked a cruise with them.

My DH, DD & I took a Disney cruise in 2007 with just birth certificates and I did not need my marriage license. Since that time I chose to get passports when my DD & I cruised Disney again in 2011 and have them now for my next cruise this Oct. It really is easier to check in with passports, but not necessary at this time.
