Pat, I agree. There should be some way you would think, to be able to get them stamped somehow. I have an old passport from when I went to England, and I like having the stamps in there.

O.k. I found this blog of someone wanting the same info on passports. After skimming through some of the replys, it seems if you are willing to seek out the local immigration office in the port where you are, you might be able to get them stamped there. I found a couple of these replys...

I thought I would get lucky


"I thought I would get lucky with Royal Caribbean when Guest Relations told me to drop off my passport the following day, and if local authorities OKed it, they would get my passport stamped at Grand Cayman, Ocho Rios and Cozumel. However, the next day I showed up at Guest Relations a different person said, sorry, they don't offer that service.
I was able to get my passport stamped at Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios on my own (Cozumel I was on a day-long excursion and didn't have time.) Interestingly, I got the same Welcome to the Cayman Islands stamp with a turtle that everyone has (undated by mistake, as this was 08.00 local time), and in Ocho Rios I didn't get a stamp "for as long as vessel remains in port" but a regular stamp allowing me to stay two days!"

Nassau, the Bahamas


DCL Wonder 4-night cruise. 2009-FEB-09.
In Nassau, go straight towards to the main exit. Right before you reach the main exit, note the tall yellow tower, the immigration office is right behind it. If you can't find it, ask the officer checking passenger's boarding passes and IDs where it is, they'll gladly tell you (2 minutes walk from the main exit / entry). The officer was very friendly, I offered him a "drink" but he politely refused. I was there by myself, but brought 3 passports with me (wife's and daughter's). In, stamped, and out in less than 5 minutes.

I've had some success with leaving my passport with Guest Services onboard the ship. They cannot guarantee that the local immigration officers that board the ship will stamp passports, but so far I've had a pretty good track record (only one or two ports where I couldn't get stamps).

I imagine this can also vary depending on the willingness of the Guest Services staff to do something like this.

Yes it is scary - but you are given no choice sometimes. When my brother and I flew to Cartagena in December to catch up with the Celebrity ship we missed in FLL (don't ask) they kept our passports upon boarding the ship and said they had to leave them with the Colombian port authorities for processing, bla bla bla but assured us we would get them back before the ship sailed away.

Trust me I was down at that desk every two hours asking for our passports. We got them back, with a stamp. So all was well - but scary.

Also - we had stamps in St Petersburg, Russia last summer - just one that they would flip thru to find upon our next entry/exit through the Russian passport control building shipside.

My old passport had some great stamps from land vacations we did- Thailand, France, Greece, Brazil, Bermuda, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and more.

Current passport only has Bermuda and Mexico. Haven't had any luck on the last couple of cruises getting anything stamped but, then again, I really didn't try very hard and didn't feel comfortable leaving my passport with the guest relations desk.

The last time I was in Grand Cayman... just last November, when you are on the pier, there are customs officials there, set up at a table... they stamp your book for you.

I wouldn't have a problem leaving my passport with guest relations... I always have a photo copy of my passport with me anyway...

When you turn in your US customs declaration card, you can ask the officer to stamp your passport.
