One person in our group does not have a passport and cannot obtain one in the time frame needed. (We leave tomorrow on Grandeur going to Cozumel.) Anyway, he just got his birth certificate yesterday and found out that his name is spelled differently on it than it is on his driver's license. The clerk typed up an amendment on regular white paper and said it did not need to be notarized. Do you think he will have any problems?

Too bad about no passport. My aunt found out on receiving her birth certificate that the name she had always used (Doris) was listed as ElDoris on the birth certificate. None of her ID matched the certificate. They let her go anyhow. I don't know that that will be your experience, but it worked out for her. Good luck.

I'd have it notarized or have another one FedExed that is correct. Why did they wait until the last minute?

sorry for the situation
But to be true to the subject they have been reporting problems with birth certificate very often IT IS TIME TO GET A PASSPORT PEOPLE!!!

She can get a new licence with the new name on the certificate??
after all the certificate is the official document she can get a new id in order with the name on the certificate

This ship has sailed. Hopefully we'll hear how the cruise was and not about being denied boarding.

I agree that a passport is the way to go; however, this gentleman is 60 something years old and has a felony on his record from way back in his younger days, and a convicted felon cannot get a passport.

Anyway, he got the clerk to notarize the amendment to his birth certificate and all went well, as he was allowed to board the ship.

That isn't always true. There are lots of people with felony convictions who have passports. It depends on the circumstances. They can't have one while serving a sentence or probation/parole but a passport can be issued after that.

But, I appreciate your letting us know that his cruise wasn't ruined by this.
