When entering the casino, clubs, bars, etc, is it necessary to bring your passport or will a State ID work?

Are there any other places where the passport is needed or will state ID's be good pretty much everywhere else?

Do you mean on the cruise or in port? When are you cruising? After Dec. 2005 you will need a passport in all areas outside of the US excpet Mexico. After Dec. 2006, you will need a passport for Mexico too. On the cruise you don't have to worry about this for the casino, clubs, etc... just keep your ship ID with you at all times.

Just a point of clarification - the US Gov't has now modified their original phase in plan for passport requirements and the Dec. 2005 deadline no longer applies. Here is the updated amendment:

As of December 31st, 2006 a Passport or other accepted document will be required for all air or sea travel within the Western Hemisphere. As of December 31st, 2007 a Passport or other accepted document will be required for all U.S. land border crossings.

You will need your sign n sail card in the bars, casino to purchase drinks. It is also your room key as well. Your SnS card has your ID age in it, so no other ID is needed on the ship, though I carry my DL as well, cause I look young for my age, and my DL is also the magnetic caard that opens my room safe, so I take that with me as well. Then in port, I carry my SnS card (you need it for your room, and to get off and on the ship) and my passport. I never take a chance in a foreign country of traveling without a US passport. It leaves the ship with me.

Thanks for all of the advice. I'll keep this all in mind, as this is the first time I will be leaving the country other than to Canada.

Great advice about taking your passport with you when you get off the ship in the ports of call. Many cruisers get so used to using their room key on the ship that they neglect to take their passport with them into the foreign countries which are visited.

I have never needed more than my room key to reboard a ship, but I still want to have my passport with me.

What do you do about securing your ID and/or S&S card when you are swimming, either on the ship or at port?

you can have the purser punch a hole in it and wear it on a lanyard around your neck or on your arm like a braclet if you get the accordion kind of lanyard the casino gives them out

Thanks. I was planning on dropping by the casino, just to get rid of the loose quarters I may have of course, so I'll get one then. Naturally, I don't expect to be in there longer than 2 minutes. hahahahahahaahahaahahahaha
