I've just read from a response to a post I placed some very helpful advice. It seems that if your bring along other teens with you ( friends of your teens) that they will need a notarized letter from their parents with permission for leaving the country. IF their parents are divorced you will need a letter from both parents. Has anyone else ever had an experience with this... Again this is my first cruise, and I would not want any problems, I will MAKE SURE I have those letters! Thanks again for all great info....Wonder 4/04/04 - 68 days!!!
