Island Babe, if your daughter's birth certificate does not list a father, you should not have to have a letter. If it does, you will, or you may not be allowed off the ship in Mexico. Check the link that Dave provided, and ask your TA for help with this, or if you booked directly with the cruise line, call Carnival and ask for a supervisor, then discuss the situation with him/her. Good luck to you!
hi I have traveled to Mexico by air to a resort and on cruises with my grand children they have two different fathers we had to bring a noterized letter from both fathers for the 2 children to travel on land and on sea
Hi Again This is Ilandbabe. Understand That I should have the paper from her father but have no idea where he is to get a signed letter. Also he is on her birth certificate. Why has Carnival told me over and over again that I dont need this letter. Received my tickets the other day and read that they require it called them again, and they said unless your in mexico more than 24 hours that it is not required. Thanks for all the Help everyone. More needed
MY experience with the letters, in june 2001 we made plans to go to a resort, in Cozumel for 7 days, my daughter myself and her two children. our flight left at 10;35 pm we were all packed dropped off at the airport, had our tickets and birth certi. and checked in, ticket rep asked for consent letters from fathers, 2 different names for the children, my daughters last name was different also as she had not been married to the older childs father, but the child had the fathers name, we had birth records but that was not enough, the girl called a supervisor over and explained we need the letter from both fathers, this was a land based resort so they have alot of different rules, for customs. I encountered the same probem with the first cruise I went on and took the 3 of them with me thinking it was not a problem but agent told me to get letters for both children to be sure, we would not have the bad experience from our last trip together the agent that sold us the resort tour did not inform us about the letters, we would need needless to say I never used her again. I never go anywhere now without consent forms for the children nothing is worse then sitting in a airport, with no way to reach either father to get papers noterized at 11.pm at night and your flight is going to leave in 30 min. through the grace of the supervisor we did manage to get all papers done and headed off to a great vacation, I will not tell you how and thier jobs would be in jepordy.
