If you're 22 and your girlfriend is 19 you won't even be able to book a cruise on Carnival, without someone 25 or older in the same cabin with you.

Both people have to be a minimum of 21 years of age (unless married), or the 25 year old is necessary to book.

I think you will have to look into Princess, I believe their age requirements are lower.

At this point, Hodgi, you can't even book the cruise on Carnival.

If someone is under 21, you must have someone over 25 in the cabin with them. That applies to Royal Caribbean too.

If you are under 21, there is a block on your sail and sign card. You will not be able to purchase alcohol with it. Someone else will have to purchase all the drinks.

Ditto Irish Girl. I saw a minor attempt to buy a drink. The moment their sail n sign was swiped, the drink was pulled.
