    Does anyone know if my 15 year old son will be allowed to disembark at Castaway Cay without my husband or myself? We would like to head to the adult beach early but he may want to sleep in. Is special permission in writing required? :confused3

    We just got off the Fantasy. There is a form to fill out to let minors on & off the boat without parents. If you don't get it in your room, certainly Guest Services will have it. You choose which ports they are allowed to do so and give it to the cast members at the gangway.

    My 11 yo wanted us to sign a form for him to stay on CC longer with Edge counselors while we went back on the ship. Just for another hour, but it was a pouring rain day and enough was enough. Turns out everyone got back on the ship so early that day we left a little ahead of schedule.

    We had NOT signed the form, but then son needed to go back on the ship with the Edge counselors to do something before we were planning to go back. In talking with the counselor about it he said "They don't need it if they are with us. They don't even question it", so son went with them and got back on the ship no problem.

    You DO NOT need a form to get back on the ship - just the KTTW card. You do need a form signed on file to leave the ship.

    The above is correct--a minor must have a form signed to get OFF the ship without parent or guardian. It is not needed to get back ON the ship. The form can be obtained from GS or from Security at the disembarkation area.
