First, congrats on taking the BIG step. My wife and I have been together for 32 years and it took us 27 before we took our first cruise.
As far as a passport, if you do the Caribbean all you need is a drivers lic and birth cert. BUT if your cruise tickets are in a different name like your wife's maiden name, you need a marriage license to verify her name was once something else. Iwas at the airport and witnessed this whole fiasco with a young newlwed couple. Believe me hassles are not what you want on your honeymoon. However, yes a passport is much better but remember your wife can't get the new one until she is married.
Good Luck

Your travel agent could easily have booked your cruise using your maiden name which is the correct thing to do since you are not yet married. Have the agent contact the cruise line and tell them to change your name on the booking to what it is now so that the name on your tickets and travel documents will be the same as your birth certificate and driving license. You have plenty of time as your tickets will probably not be printed until at least a month before your cruise date.
Have a great life together, and cruise often. Bobby .

Just to let you know that if you have a passport in your maiden name you just need to send it with a certified copy of your marriage license to the issuing passport office and they will add an amendment of the name change. There is no cost for this. The downside is that you have this passport for the next 10 years that still shows your maiden name in the front.
