We're stopping at Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Maarten - those places are fairly touristy aren't they? Well, my mom's last name is the same as mine, plus we are booked together - so it should be okay. My friend is 'booked' with my mom's gross bf, although obviously I will be in a room with my friend. You know.
Anyways, thanks for the replies I leave in two days !! If only I had one of those cool cruise countdown-ers.. le sigh.

The law that requires this is because of parental abductions that have occured. It is the law that you be able to present a notorized letter from the absent parent stating that it is permitted for you to travel to a foreign country without them. This is also required of anyone that is traveling with a non-relative to get signed permission from both parents. In addition you need to have authority in the form of a noterized letter stating that they have permission to make medical decisions as well for the lenght of this vacation. Some people have gotten away without them but they are required and if they ask, which they very often do, you must be able to provide it or you will be waving bye-bye from the dock as the ship sails away. If one parent has died then bring a death certificate. If the absent parent is unknown then bring the papers, (birth certificate), that shows the parent is unknown. If the parent is just a deadbeat type get a court order.
