I booked a cruise this weekend for the Carnival Paradise going to Ensenada and Catalina Island. We leave in 4 weeks from today so it was kind of a last minute decision to take my daughter for her 16th birthday. I have my passport but she does not and it's going to be a close call getting it back, even if I have it expidited I'm told. Can anyone tell me if I should really push to get it? Carnival says I can take her with just a birth certificate and her I.D. but says that I should have a passport too. I would hate for something to happen and then I have a problem with the fact that she doesn't have a passport. Any advice would be helpful...should I really try to get the passport or just take her with her i.d. & birth certificate? Thanks!
