Yup, definitely need the expedited service. I recently did the regular service to renew my passport and it took a solid 5 weeks. Fortunately, it showed up 2 weeks before my trip to the Netherlands (speaking of which).

You do not want to show up to the airport, only to be denied boarding by the airline. OR to show up in country, only to be denied by immigration and sent back home.
