Default Notarized letters of permission

So, our anniversary cruise has turned into a bit of a group since our son is bringing his friend (15) and our daughter is bringing her boyfriend (19).
I know that we need a notarized letter of permission for the 15 year old friend but now I've gotten to wondering whether we'll need one for the 19 year old? (My inclination is no, but then again I don't want to be the family standing there at the pier saying "what do you mean we need his parents permission") I guess to be on the safe side we should just have his parents do one.
I'll ask our travel agent on Monday but was interested to see what the mates think!

I honestly don't think you'd need one for the 19 year old, but just in case I'd ask the parents for one anyway, better safe than sorry. If he was 21, then I'm sure there would be no problem.

He is an adult and just needs the same documents as you do.

24 cruises and counting!

We brought daughter's boyfriend, who turned 21 the 2nd day onboard, and didn't need any documentation other than his passport. However, Customs at the airport did question why we were 5 people travelling together "as a family" when we all had different last names. ( in Quebec, women use their maiden names on all legal documents; then my husband's name, my kids have my ex-husband's name, and the boyfirend of course, has another name.) I would definately bring a letter from the younger teen's parents though.
Have a great time!

chances are you won't need it for the 19 yr old, but i would have it just in case. What you do need to get is a signed letter from the parents giving you permission to seek medical attention for their children should they not be able to give consent. This letter does not need to be notarized, just signed by the parents, make sure the kids have their medical cards with them.
