I'm involved with an outdoors club, which has members of a variety of ages between 18 and 50. There's strong interest in taking a trip to the Carribean for snorkeling / scuba diving, hiking, etc. I was on the Carnival Glory last January on the Key West / Belize / Cozumel / Progreso itinerary and I think that would be perfect.
However, given that some of our members are under 21, I was wondering what the effective age policy is for Carnival. The way I read it, anybody under 21 needs to travel with a parent or guardian in the same cabin. However, I seem to recall from my previous cruises that if the individual is between 18 and 20, the rule is that they just need to travel with somebody over 25, who does not have to be a parent/guardian. Is that the case?
It seems kind of silly to require a parent/guardian to be present when the individual is a legal adult, and hence parent/guardian has no legal meaning
