Hi

We are thinking about taking our first cruise later in the year and were going to bring our 17 year old son with us.

He (Son) has asked to bring along a friend who is also 17. We were wondering If the cruise lines allow this, and what we need to do as far as customs and immigrations go.

BTW - We will probably end up on one of the carnival cruises - Western Caribbean.

Thanks

Take Care,

Cheryl

You will need to get a notorized letter from both parents of the 17 year old stating that he is allowed to travel with you. He will also need a picture ID and a state certified Birth Certificate. Even if the parents are divorced they both have to give permission. If I can answer anymore questions please do not hesitate to email me.

Hello KSCRUISER:

Just noticed you have a 17 yr. old also. We have a 17 yr also, girl. Any chance you'll be sailing on the Celebration on Dec.15-20?We are booked for that cruise and are oh so excited! My daughter is afraid that there isn't going to be any one her age. Our TA has assured her that she will have loads of fun. Happy Sailing! ginag (also from KS.)

You may not care, but cruise lines are notorious for serving alcoholic beverages to underage teens. Something to discuss with the parents of the other boy, perhaps.

Here is a link to site that has a document you can prepare and have the parents of the child sign if you are taking any child on vacation with you. Also, even if you are divorced and have custody of a child it is not a bad idea to also take along a signed release from the non-custodial parent with you in case of any questions. https://www.legaldocs.com/docs/child_1.mv

On P&O ships this is almost impossible unless you decide to steal someone elses card who is over 18 and can forge a signature.

Under 18s have their cards highlighted in yellow and with asterix.
