My son was 18 on our last cruise and was allowed to be in the casino, but he was not allowed to gamble. He did try and the pit boss asked to see his id. Once he showed them, the pb said he was welcome to stay and observe, but not to gamble.
If you are underage and get a nice pot, the casino can and will refuse to pay the prize.
On Carnival it is 18 for the casino and I don't believe there are any restrictions if you are 18, Luanne.
My 15 yo could care less about drinking, but DROOLS over the casino!
