I just received this from Holland-America and thought I would share the information with everyone out here on Cruise Chat. It is as follows:

January 8, 2007 Valid passport or other accepted document* required for all air travel to or from the U.S.
June 1, 2009 Valid passport or other accepted document* required for all travel to or from the U.S. (air, sea or land)
Although the requirement to possess a valid passport for sea and land border crossings has been extended to June 1, 2009, the government can accelerate this date based on meeting certain criteria

the rest of the message was:

Please note that effective January 8, 2007, all cruise guests entering or re-entering the United States by air are required to have valid passports. U.S. cruise guests who travel by air to embark in Vancouver for Alaska cruises and Canadian cruise guests who travel by air to embark in U.S. ports are required to have valid passports for all cruises terminating on or after January 8, 2007. Foreign nationals should contact their respective governments to obtain details regarding current passport requirements.

All cruise guests must present the required documentation at embarkation. Cruise guests without required documentation will be denied boarding and no refund will be issued. Holland America Line will strictly enforce this requirement in compliance with the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.

To help ensure your positive travel experience with Holland America Line, we encourage you to make sure that you are prepared to meet these pending passport requirements.

A good plan is to have a passport sooner than later.
If you need to fly back to the U.S. due to illness or family emergency you will need a passport.
We never expect emergencies to come up but they do happen.
