I'm perfectly aware of the drinking age in Europe as I'm a norwegian myself where the legal age is 18 but most of us start much earlier.

As an officer I have been onboard for months withount a single drop since we had the zero policy, and we often got tested too.

I agree with you that it sounds strange that a 19 year old got hired, however, In NCl we had trainees and apprentices of the age of 17 and up.
Anyway - the least problem onboard a cruise ship is to get a drink if you really want to. But I have seen dusins of irresponsible people getting fired because they do not know how to drink.
