We are taking our adult kids on a cruise in the fall. Our son's girlfriend has a passport with her married name (she's been divorced for awhile) but her drivers license has her maiden name. Does she need to change her passport to her maiden name? Her passport is still current. She doesn't go by her married name.

I'm just guessing here, but I would make sure the name on the Passport matched the name on the reservation.

Bingo!

As long as the name on the reservation matches the name on the ID being used that's what they're looking for.

Use whichever ID that matches the name she books the cruise in. If the name on her DL is her maiden name take her BC along with the DL and she is good to go.
