Finally convinced my inlaws to do their first cruise. They booked an Alaska trip in Sept '06. They are Canadian from Victoria BC and are wondering if its really necessary to apply for passports for this particular cruise. If they catch the cruise bug (like my husband and I) then they said it would be a consideration for future cruises.
Anyone American or Canadian done this Alaska trip without one?

The Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 requires that by January 1, 2008, travelers to and from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Panama, Mexico and Canada have a passport or other secure, accepted document to enter or re-enter the United States.

Just remember that the prices in the US just went up so once everyone traveling out of the country has to have one the prices may rise again. And that is in both countries. And using a passport makes everything so much quicker.

Snorkel Mich is right on about getting passports. They are going to need them eventually so they may as well beat the mad rush and get them now.

As your in-laws are Canadian, a passport for travel into the U.S. is not required, yet is highly recommended by the Canadian government for the return to their country. The Web site of the Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau explains this further: Consular Affairs - Before You Go
