Hi everyone! My husband and I will be going on our first cruise this fall to the Bahamas on The Dawn. We are so excited as we've wanted to go on a cruise forever. It is an anniversary cruise for us.
Anyway, just a few questions. Do we need a passport for this trip? I've read so many different things and some of the sites say you just need a driver's license/birth certificate, etc. I think the new procedure goes into effect this December but I want to make sure we won't need passports.
Are you permitted to bring your own beverages on board the ship? I've seen some posts where people say they've brought 12 packs of soda with them. My husband drinks A LOT of soda and I was wondering if anyone has ever brought their own or would recommend buying the soda card.
Last, has anyone taken this trip in October before? Any comments on the Carribbean in the fall?
Thanks so much to all!
