a passport that is valid for at least six (6) months

cruise; and guests needing to fly to the U.S. before
their cruise ends, because of medical, family, personal
or business emergencies, missing a ship's departure
from a port of call, involuntary disembarkation
from a ship due to misconduct, or other reasons.

are not required to have a passport, but will need
proof of citizenship such as an original or certified

a passport card, an enhanced driver's license (EDL)
as well as a government-issued photo ID. Children
are also required to bring proof of citizenship,
and if 16 and over, a photo ID is also required.

need to fly back to the US you will NOT be allowed
