Default 18 to 20 year old cruisers

We are booked on the Triumph for 8/3/08 and are traveling with 3 young adults, ages 18, 19 and 19. Not teens but not yet 21---what does Carnival provide for "get to know" activities for this age group? We have cruised several times in the past but never before on Carnival.

The three young adults are our children.

Default TEENS

I thought I saw the age cut off at 17 for the teen activities. Captain: can the 18 and 19 year olds participate too? If so, that is what we are looking for. Thanks for the post. rekfla.

rekfla,
in all honesty I was just making light of the fact that they are still in their teens.......I wish I was still their age
But to answer your question, I really do not know, and if I were to give you an answer, I would only be speculating. Hopefully someone will come along to answer your question.

Captain

Actually 18 to 21 are kind of lost years to the cruise lines. They sometimes have a singles party in the disco one night but my kids hang with us or each other since they aged past club O2. They can gamble in the casino but mine don't like losing the little money they have. Since they have gotten out of the camp carnval age they haven't meet anyone on a cruise. They usually have a friend in tow now anyway. Cindy

The ships really ought to have one function for the 18-20 year olds. Too old to hang with younger friends at the teen club, too young to have a drink in the adult club (even if they wanted to dance with the mostly 30 plus crowd in the lounge). Scheduling may be tough, but I can feel for those who feel they really have no where to meet their peers.

Yea cruises are not the funniest place to be when your in the age range of 18-20 because there is no real place to go for them and cruise lines treat them with disrespect because of this. Some one in the cruise line need to pull their head out of there A$$ and relize this to young to drink and to old to be a teen even though you basically still are just with more responseiblitys.

Ps i know i cant spell and have bad grammer but that whats microsoft word's 4

You are generous parents. My parents went to Europe and left us behind (my brother and I were teenagers). My cousins fared worse than my brother and I. Their parents went to Cuba (We're Canadian) once a year and to Vegas at least two or three times a year (a friend of theirs had his own plane and owned a condo there). My cousins never got to go with their parents to Cuba OR Vegas, but they did get to go down to Disneyland (in a RV) when the oldest was around 10 or so....

I didn't see any meet and greet for that age range, but the bars and clubs would pretty well take over for that since they have the whole night to wander in and out and meet people their age.

I read another post recently and the 18 to 20 year olds were able to hang together in the Hollywood disco on the Triumph. So, this will be fine for our 3 kids on our cruise. They can meet some other young adults or keep themselves entertained.
