Do Cruisers need a Passport?
In Febrary 2008, The Department of Homeland Security issued
the final rules for travel in the Western Hemisphere, known as the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative.
The short answer is in fact: most passengers cruising from/to the United States
meet the conditions for an exception, and are therefore not
now, nor will they ever be required to present a passport to cruise.

Large panoramic picture of Navigator of the Seas
I took this
series of photos as we pulled out of Miami on Explorer of the Seas. The picture is
5613x1111 pixels and just about 1 megabyte. You can clearly see all the balconies
and windows on the starboard side of the ship. See if you can find your room!
