"Both parents are requested to participate in obtaining passport services for their child and to sign the application form. The other parent may be contacted."
Note "requested" and "may".
The application also says this, under the heading of "Documentation to Facilitate Travel Abroad":
The following documents may be required to support the entry of a child to another country:
Not trying to dispute your knowledge of the US rules, but it's interesting that customs agencies in general would base policy on assumptions that may or may not be correct, depending on the issuing country.
Personally, I'd probably carry a signed letter. I don't imagine I'd bother getting it notarized, since the likelihood of even being asked for it is low. But a signed letter costs nothing, and if I *was* asked, it would probably at least be better than nothing. And like you said, it's the "usually" that you have to worry about.

Once on board however, he is considered an adult. He will NOT be able to participate in the teen clubs.

He turns 18 the day the cruise starts which is August 19, so then I assume we'll be fine.
I know he can't go to the teens club, that's why I'm bringing him as my son turns 18 on August 14, so he can't go to the club either and I want him to have a friend to hang out with.
