Which cruise line is she travelling with? She may need to take a notarised letter if the child has a different surname to her - but certainly the birth certificate and a letter from the parent with the same surname - depends on the cruise company.

depends on the situation. If she is the child's mother then the birth certificate would prove enough information but again I would check with your travel agent or cruise company.

If the child is 'looked after' as in foster care a Social Workers letter is needed or parental consent depending on the situation

I know a cruise is different, but these days you need as much proof as possible to show that you are not taking a child out of the country without the other parents permission. There is quite a bit on the news about children being taken out of the country illegally. 

 

Just looking at it from another angle.

Our niece had problems taking her daughter to Canada to visit family,  She was asked for a notarized letter from her husband, giving permission to travel with their child.  She had not been asked at the airport when leaving home, but had to get documents emailed to enter Canada.  Some countries are very strict because of experiences with parental abduction.  They had the same last names, so that was not the issue.  Better to be prepared for possible problems.
