I am needing some help. I am not working with a travel agent. I know know big mistake on my part.
I will be traveling with my cousin this December on a western Caribbean cruise we will embark out of New Orleans the ports of call are Costa Maya Mexico, Grand Cayman Islands, Saint Thomas Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and Cozumel Mexico. This will be my cousin first time to cruise, her son, and husband will also be going. None of them have passports. I told them when they booked in May they should get them. But they did not get the passports. Now we are less than 45 days way. I know it is better to have a passport. But it as if they don't want to get one. So, my question is can they just go a official birth certificate? If so how does that work, will they be able to get off at all the ports? Will it take them longer to board the ship. An help would be great thanks.
