I will be cruising to Bermuda with my 13 year old son. Wondering what documentation will be required to enter Bermuda. My son has a different last name than I do. I would think that if I have his passport, a letter from his Dad, and his birth certificate, I should be okay. I assume I will also need all these things just to get on the ship.
I would suggest this notarized documentation.... may or may not be asked for, but better to be prepared.
CONSENT FOR MINOR CHILDREN TO TRAVEL
I (we):_____________________________________________ _________________
authorize my/our minor child(ren):_______________________________________ ____
to travel to:_________________________________ on:_________________________
aboard Airline/Flight Number:________________________________________
and/or Cruise Ship:_____________________________________________ with:
__________________________________________________ __________. Their expected
date of return is _______________________.
In addition, I (we) authorize:______________________________________ to consent
to any necessary routine or emergency medical treatment during the aforementioned trip.
Yeppers.....you should be good to go now and you do not need to take the birth certificate off the ship when in Bermuda...just your boarding card and photo ID for anyone 16 years and older...under 16 years of age, no photo ID needed to debark or embark ship while in Bermida, but you may want to bring that notarized document with you when leaving the ship, just in case you are asked for it.
Have a GREAT cruise !
PS... looks like the minor child has a passport and that "trumps" a BC and BC is really not necessary at all. Some will encourage you to carry passports off the ship, some will say bring a copy of passport when off the ship in a port of call..... really your call on this. I would just follow what the cruiseline suggest in your daily paperwork provided to you with suggestions and requirements of what is needed when debarking ship.

if he has a passport, birth certificate isn't necessary. If you share custody with his dad then a signed,notarized letter with your name, his name your son's name, date of sailing, ships name and destination is what you will need
