Go to the website of your cruiseline and go to their section on documents/requirements or their FAQ or even call them.

But if you depart from Honolulu and come back to Honolulu and stay in the Hawaiian islands, I don't see how you'd need a passport.

I always travel with my passport; you never know what will come up. However, you should not need a passport to travel the Hawaiian Islands since Hawaii is a state. I would check with your cruise line and your cruise documents to see if/why you would need one.

It depends on which cruise you go on. Some of them stay in the state and just circle around the Hawaiian Islands. Others of them go to Kiribati outside the state and then back in. Probably you wouldn't need a passport, but call the cruise line to be certain.

Probably not, since you're not leaving the country, but it depends on the cruise line. I'd call the cruise line to double check that you don't need it. Also remember it's a good idea to bring your passport with you whenever travelling.

Maybe a birth certificate and D.L. will work. Now you really need to prove who you are.

If you're looking at one of the Norwegian cruises that circle the islands you won't need it. It's a US flagged ship. If you're travelling on a different line that is flagged somewhere besides the US you will be required to stop in a foreign port and may need your passport. This is due to the Jones Act or the Passenger Services Act.

The more important issue here is that everyone that travels should have a passport these days.
