Correct. I wrongly assumed OP was American, since it shows Daytona Beach a s home location.

Just wanted to be extra clear & specific because you can live in Florida and not necessarily travel on a US passport ;p Also for future readers who might actually use the "search" feature:')

On a separate note, if you are doing any day tourism in Seattle prior to or after your cruise, you may want to look at Seattle CityPASS option. It is good for nine consecutive days, so we used it a day before before and the day we returned. The site shows the locations, but we used it for Chihuly Garden, the Space Needle, Seattle Aquarium, and the Argosy Harbor tour. The individual price would have been much higher, and the pass was easy to use.

My family just came back from Explorer of the Seas RT from Seattle, Aug 10-17. The passport check was the loosest ever. When getting off the ship at each port, we were told by the cruise people to have photo ID along with the ship card, but we were never asked to show the photo ID by the port people, even when going on and off the ship at Victoria.

 

When returning to Seattle, we didn't have to fill out the blue custom form. The agents didn't stop anybody to check the passport or ask any question. They just stood by the door and asked everybody to hold up the passport open at the photo page, and everybody just walking through at normal speed. (That's for all passports, regardless of the country.)

We had the same experience on our recent Caribbean cruise...they did say you only needed the blue form if you went over your customs limits, but no clue where to get the form in that case...we did not go over. They just glanced at our Passports and off we went.

 

We didn't have to show our DL in port either, just a quick glance at our ship's card.

Same here...just off of Carnival legend from Seattle to Alaska.. never a check of any ID on any ports, nor when we debarked in seattle. We had our passport cards out for debark and they barely glanced at them as we walked by.

I agree on the quick check of the passports in either Victoria, Canada or Seattle. However, if you take a tour from Skagway to Canada, they do look at passports both entering Canada and returning to the USA.

On our May sailing, passports were checked before we exited the port in Victoria and disembarking in Seattle after the cruise.
