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

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.

sck5 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

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.

Of course you do. A passport is the negotiated documentation to show citizenship when in transit between one sovereign nation and another.
When only roughly 30% of US citizens have passports at all, this type of question isn't surprising.
