I have booked a Baltic Cruise for August, I just sent in passport renewal and daughter has to do a passport name change.

Question is if I find air right now to Copenhagen I like can I book it without passport numbers and supply the info when they arrive?

Yes. You can.
Booking overseas flights using soon-to-expire passport

I don't remember ever needing to supply a passport number when booking overseas flights or accommodations. Travelers are identified by name, and a passport may be requested by the airline or hotel when checking in, to verify identity. For international flights, the airline desk will only require a passport for the purpose of verifying that you will be admitted to the country of destination. (The airline is responsible for flying you out, if immigration does not admit you, and they are very fussy about that)

Countries that require a visa may require that at least 6 months validity remains on your passport, but other than visa issuance, your passport is valid and accepted as ID right up to the expiration date.

Your daughter does not HAVE to get a new passport with name change in it. She can continue to use her old one, and carry a copy of marriage license in case someone questions a discrepancy between passport and other identity documents.

I've been asked to enter passport number and expiration date many times for intl fights.

Never for accommodations though.

me too...always had to enter passport information.

The OP should have a copy of their passport and could enter it while awaiting the renewal.

Some airlines request a valid passport number when booking a flight. I guess Air China is one of them.

Must be nice to have that American passport privilege when visiting Europe.

People with third world passports have to plan their trips months in advance and have valid passports when applying for visas at the embassy of the destination country. Even if they live in America.

I really don't get why European nations allow Americans to visit visa-free. What sets them apart from a Chinese or an Indian or a Thai?

Are there reports of Americans coming to Europe and committing acts of terrorism?

Not being flippant. I am just guessing.
