Do I need an enhanced driver's license or state ID card if I am going on a cruise?

Whether you can use an enhanced driver's license or state ID card depends on which ports you will be visiting. Foreign ports may require a passport for entry. Please note that due to emergencies, such as weather conditions, cruise ships may make unscheduled stops at foreign ports that require documents other than an enhanced license or state ID card to go ashore. Contact the cruise line or your travel agent for specific information.
