So, if you wanna go, I think tha you can.
This is not necessarily true, in fact, in many cases it's false.
Ship age groups are divided into ages 12-14 and 15-17 and theres usually some kind additional insignia placed on your boarding card identifying you in one of those age groups. As an 18 year old traveller myself, the likelyhood of being able to get into the teen club is pretty slim with new regulations on the different cruise lines. Being 11 and getting into the 12-17 club is a lot different than being 18 and getting in because at 18 your a legal adult and being in the presence of minors causes the ship legality issues that they're usually not willing to risk. The only exceptionw are if you: A. have a really chill teen director who is ok with it up front or B. have a chill director who allows 18 year olds who are still in high school in the club. The cruise line you travel on will also have an influence on the likelyhood of getting in to the teen facility. Traditionally RCI is rather tough and Carnival is easier (Carnival owns Costa, and Costa's teen program is set up a little different than most programs out there).
