You need to check with the cruise line on what is required here. I believe it has to be a notarized letter signed by both parents unless either one is deceased or if sole custody was granted to her father in case of divorce. If joint custody was granted then both parents still must approve the trip.

Looks like I was not entirely correct. Look at the part on family travel documents at this RCI link .
Looks like the passport and a notarized letter signed by dad will suffice - although it must have specific wording as noted in the link.
Dave you are right that is what is says. It does not make sense to me. The purpose of having both parents sign is to keep the child from leaving the county with one parent and the other not knowing about it. What would stop a person from giving someone permission to take a child out of county and then just meeting them there?

well i doubt i will be able to get a noterized letter or anything from dear old dad.. he has not had any contact for over a year he lives 9 houses away but never seen and i know he will not sign.
From what the links says, the mom's consent would be fine.
