    Passport card is another form of id. Can be used in Carribean but not in europe. Embassies honor it if you loose your passport. Its the size of a license so it was handy to carry. When we traveled we left our passports in the safe on the ship and just carried the card. In retrospect we probably didn't need it in europe but being newbies taking kids we felt safe .

    So this Saturday the State Department is bending those rules on their third annual Passport Day in the USA - a day when all regional passport agencies and passport acceptance facilities, including post offices, will be open on the weekend when they are normally closed.

    For this day only, U.S. citizens can apply directly at passport agencies without making an appointment, and both routine and expedited processing service can be requested.

    Danadog, have you been to Bonaire before? If not you will love it! I went a few years ago and it was great! Have dinner at "Richard's by the Sea" one night if you can... the food is great and it's right on the water with a beautiful view of the sunset!!

    Just heard tonight, my son got his renewed passport in 21/2 wks. We booked a cruise for December ande his passport was due to expire in less than six months from return date of cruise. Cruiseline warned must be valid for 6 months past arrival home.
