Yes you can sail out into the middle of the Ocean and return without passports... But touch another nation's shore and you better have Passports and with some nations, Visas also.

i read somewhere that a "cruise to nowhere" doesnt require a passport. If the ship never enters another port you may not need a passport even if the ship leaves US territorial waters

My question would be: Why not have a passport?. In the world in which we live it is the best form of ID. If you have it, it is good for 10 years and costs under $100. If you decide to go out of country you need one. If you decide you need to go to Chile, or anywhere else, tomorrow you can go with a passport. If you don't have one you WILL WAIT.

Maybe....depends on where you live or are willing to go to....I can drive down to Houston and the passport office will process it while I wait....for a fee of course....but I've seen this done many times....folks book a dive trip down to Cozumel or Cayman but don't consider the passport...then get into a last minute scramble. They just drive down to Houston and pay the expedite fees, return with a new passport.

Well... it ain't under US$100, but I agree, everyone should have one.

There they go, raising the price after my last renewal. Still, not a bad deal!
