Default Must be Age 25 to be in Cabin?

I just saw where there needs to be at least one person in a cabin of the age of 25. (However, they can be under 25 if they are married.) My question is, if you are planning a trip with a small group where there are more under 25 guests than chaperones, how can they get a cabin? My niece wants to to go with six friends (over 18, but under 25), plus two chaperones over the age of 40.

The younger ones (or even the two older flolks ) might not like it, but put 4 in each cabin. A suite might be best but the cost will be a lot more.

From what I've been told in the past by a Carnival Sales Rep. is that if anyone in a cabin is UNDER the age of 21, then someone 25 or older must be in the cabin with them. Otherwise they can be in a cabin together as long as they are 21. We have reserved one way and then swapped once we got on the ship but it was a big mess with cabin keys and such even with connecting cabins. The cabin steward was cool about it though and let us do it without causing a stink. I wouldn't advise it though unless you have no other way to reserve. Good luck!

The proble is that there are not enough over 25 to make that work.

How old do you have to be to travel alone?

Guests are required to be 21 years old (on embarkation day) to travel. Guests under the age of 21 must be accompanied in the same stateroom by a parent or guardian 25 or older. The exceptions Carnival will make to this policy are:

Married minor couple - The booking must be documented that the couple is married. The couple must have proof of marriage at embarkation or they will be denied boarding without the benefit of a refund.

Domestic Partners/Same-Sex Union minor couple - The booking must be documented that the couple are legal Domestic Partners/Same-Sex Union. The couple must have legal proof of partnership/union at embarkation or they will be denied boarding without the benefit of a refund.

Guest ages will be verified at embarkation. Guests not conforming to this policy will be denied boarding and assessed a 100% cancellation penalty. NO exceptions will be made at embarkation.

The Group policy is slightly different because of stricter group terms and conditions including mandatory chaperones, damage deposits and other considerations.

You can do this with Carnival. Call them and get the numbers for the travel agencies (there are only two) who handle student travel for Carnival. You can have 1 chaperone for every 10 persons under 25. Everyone under 25 has to pay a $100.00 damage deposit refunded after the cruise if there is no damage. There are other requirements, but they aren't a big deal. However, they only allow student groups on certain Carnival ships and sail dates. I don't know what they are because we had enough people over 25.

I just booked a group of 19 adults and 24 under age 25. On paper there is one person over 25 in each cabin. They will change rooms when the ship has sailed. I've been told Carnival tells the ship when they suspect a group is a student group and they will not allow room changes at the pursers desk. In any case, it worked for us. We had to get a triple and a quad room, but everything seems okay. The TA said Carnival can still ask for the damage deposit. She is hoping they partied well during the holidays and forgot about it!

It has been a real headache for me! We sail on the Conquest in May. I'll let you know how things turn out.
