Default documentation

We are cruising Carnival Victory to the Western Caribbean in October - first time cruisers!! Yippee!!!
My question in this (actually have lots of questions, but this will do for now):
My husband has 2 kids from previous relationship that we are bringing with us along with our younger 2 kids. His kids have their mother's last name. His son is 20 and will be no problem. However, his daughter is 17 and he has primary placement but joint custody with the mother. Our travel agent gave us a form which we gave to the mother to have signed and notarized. We did this back in April and we still have not received the form. My husband told our travel agent that we were having problems with her signing this. She called Carnival and called us back and said that Carnival said it wasn't needed. My stepdaughter's birth certificate has my husband's first initial and last name on it. Will that be sufficient or do we really NEED that slip from the mother? HELP!!!

I have never had this problem, but with what I have heard, I would not go to the dock without paperwork. It would not be the first time, that someone was told something by carnival. and then it not agree with what is really going on. The laws have changed over the last couple of years to keep one parent from taking a child out of the country without permission. I think a good rule to go by is to have to much paperwork at check in than not enough.
