Default Drinking Age

You must be 21 years old - if on carnival - your sail and sign card in the computer system will indicate whether or not you are over 21 years of age, I believe. The sail & sign card is tied to your profile and room.

There is no curfew on the ship that I know of.

Your Carnival Sail & Sign card will be encoded as to your age if you are under 21, and you will NOT be served any alcoholic beverage.

I've never heard anything about a curfew on cruise ships.

Since I am long past the age of "below 21" - I'm not sure if it indicates under 21 on the card -it doesn't show that I am over 21 - howver, it is in the computer system when the card is swiped.

I don't know of course, but I think that there's all kinds of information about you encoded in the strip on the back of the card. Name, address, gender, cabin number, age , booking number, etc.

Some lines used to punch a hole in the cards of passengers under 21, but I'm not sure any do that anymore.

Barbara, your age isn't apparent when you look at the card. A lot of info is encoded on it that nobody sees except the staff and crew.

Curfew...forget about it.You will be stepping over teens at 3,or 4 in the morning(They sit on the stairs conversing with their cruise friends) going up,or down the stairs,and some probably will be mine included.Majority of them are great kids enjoying their vacation.They also sleep until 1,or 2 pm,so you will have the ship to yourself for a while
