    I've been doing research on the passport cards but I just want to make sure I have this correct. As long as we cross into Canada by land (amtrak, shuttle, bus, crawl) we may use the passport cards and not a real (expensive) passport? We may board the ship with these as well? We're only heading back to L.A. after a stop in San Francisco so there are no other foreign ports. It would cost us $700 - $800 for passports, I believe since we are a family of 6. If we choose to get passports, we may have to push our cruise from 9/13 to 5/14. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    As long as there is no air travel involved and you remain within the Western Hemisphere, you may travel with Passport Cards. And the Passport Card is a "real" passport, jut not acceptable for air travel or outside the Western Hemisphere.
