Can you use a cert copy on your cruise, and does it need to have a raised seal on it? My girlfriend has a cert copy but it doesn't have the raised seal. It is legit, but I don'r know if it will be okay with carnival.
Going on the valor(april 23rd)!! Looking forward to a great cruise.
We too are cruising on the Valor on the 23rd of April!! We'll see you aboard.
I have read that the birth cert must have a raised seal, however, it's best to call Carnival and ask them. If that's the case, at least you have a couple of months to get the required documentation, if you find out for sure right now.
Good luck, and once again, we'll see you aboard!
My original b.c. had a huge raised seal and my baby footprints. My newer one the raised seal is barely visable. Anyway, my name has changed twice since birth and how a birth certificate can or has been used as identification is beyond me.
I now have a passport after much procrastination.
