Do most people travel with passports or certified sealed copy of original birth certificate? New to this first trip is Sept. 8th on Fantsay to Costa Maya & Cozumel Mexico.

I have no idea of the percentages for each....both are still good in September of this year....but you are going to need passports to do any travel anywhere outside the U.S. borders in the near future so I strongly urge you to take the plunge and get the passports. Why let your future travel plans be encumbered by not having passports? They are good for 10 years for adults.

Another thing to consider is that if you have to leave the cruise early and fly home to the U.S. you will need a passport to fly home. You never know if this might need to happen.

It took us 13 weeks to get our passports in the mail (along with our birth certificates) My brother paid the extra cash and got his in a few short weeks. Bite the bullet and buy them. Better safe than sorry.
And enjoy the cruise!

I made a point out of watching people show their ID on our last cruise...I'd bet at least 80% had a passport. I agree totally with Dave. If you're going to be doing any considerable traveling over the next few years, get a passport. Eventually you're going to be required to have one anyone!

If you ever want to travel again once, outside the U.S. by air or sea after the end of this year. Everyone who ever leaves the U.S. should have one even this year. Look through some of the posts from the past for reasons.

Cheers, Neil
