Hey I just wanted to know if anyone who is a permanent resident of the United States have recently traveled on a cruise to the Bahamas with just a greencard and a drivers license and NO PASSPORT.

I would visit Bahamas Immigration site and confirm with your cruise line the information listed below.

 

Generally, all U.S. citizens are required to present a valid U.S. passport when traveling to The Bahamas, as well as proof of anticipated departure from The Bahamas. Those traveling to The Bahamas on a cruise may use another Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) compliant document. However, we strongly recommend visitors obtain a passport before travel in case of an unforeseen emergency that requires a cruise passenger to disembark and return by air. U.S. travelers coming for tourism will not need a visa for travel up to 90 days. All other travelers will need a visa and/or work permit. Please visit Bahamas Immigration.

Why risk it? You never know what might happen - best be prepared. Bring your passport and always carry at least a photocopy of your title page.

I agree with the advice to go to the immigration site for the Bahammas to get the correct, up to date information. You may get outdated or wrong information from a forum like this, and then you might be denied entry, which would be too bad.

I agree, it doesn't pay to take a chance.  I know, though, that passports now are very expensive.

We just renewed our Canadian passports for 10 yrs, and paid $120 each I think it was. That's pretty inexpensive ID at only a dollar a month, in my opinion.

I agree.

And it lets you pretty much travel anywhere in the world, at any time.

Try doing that with only a birth certificate!
