Q. Do I need a passport to cruise?
A. No. A passport is not needed to cruise on a closed-loop cruise (a cruise beginning and ending from a U.S. port). However, I do recommend for my clients to get a passport card. You can obtain more information on this card by visiting the U.S. Dept. of state @ http://travel.state.gov/passport/ppt_card/ppt_card_3926.html
Q. I’ve never cruised before, what type of cabin should I book?
A. I always suggest first timers go with an inside cabin. Its usually the least expensive and allows you to reduce the viewing/feeling of the ocean, in the event you get motion sickness.
