Passport renewal processing time in November? Passport card?

Jump to last reply

I I have been vascillating on whether to take a Caribbean cruise in the second week of December, due to tentative plans & invitations. Think I have arranged my schedule so I can go 12/9 - 12/17. I just realized that when I didn't take one last year, I also didn't renew my passport. Of course, I have to renew it anyway. But now I would really have to run get a photo done tomorrow, print the ap and get it sent on Sat. if I expect to go anywhere in 2012.

How long do you think it will take to get a renewal for my passport in November? The passport website says 4-6 weeks, people on Fodors reported getting it in 2 weeks in mid-October via regular ground mail. I will be paying for a trackable 8 x 10 envelope anyway. Should I send it 2 day/overnight,? pay the passport ap $60 expedite fee, and/or $12 Overnight return? Do I need the expedited services? Did I cut it too close?

Also does anybody get the Passport Card?

Thanks as always for your feedback.
