I don't know what drives the procrastination and ambivalence with getting a passport. It's like those who wait until the evening of April 15 to make a frantic dash to the post office with their tax return. Why do they do it?
People are going to be required to have a passport and everyone needs to accept it, get over it, and get one! I fully support RCCL and their policy of requiring a passport next year regardless of the U.S. government timetable change. I hope all of the lines follow suit.
