How much does NCL charge to have a parental letter notarized for a traveling minor who is traveling with grandparents?

You don't get the letter notarized by NCL. You need to go to a notary where you live. My bank has a Notary. Notaries are quite common and can be found in many businesses. Some Travel Agencies, Accountants, even car dealerships, Realtors to name a few.

NCL does not notarize documents. This is something you'll need to take care of at home before your departure date. Costs are pretty reasonable -- there's a guideline on the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Web site. (Go to mass.gov and search for notary. I tried to put the direct link here, but it didn't take.)

Does anyone know what the cost is to notarize the letter? Is it $25.00?

Or, just stop in a bank at your next opportunity and ask them.

Most likely the bank won't even charge you if you have an account there. If they do it probably is a minimal amount.

My bank never charges to notarize for me. They just ask if I have an account with them. If not I believe the notary charges $5.

I'm a Notary Public and I follow guidelines outlined by the state. It's a minimal price, or, as has been stated, your bank may do it for nothing.

When you go to have something notarized, be sure to have a photo ID with you plus another form of identification.

If I am reading it correctly, the Massachusetts Notary Fees are $1.25 for a general noting.

Well, I guess $5 to $10 is a reasonable price, especially if it's going to save a cruise from being ruined.
