Congratulations...since you will be 21 you can do whatever you please. 8)
Being mid-40's I cannot tell you what the 18-22 crowd do, but I have noticed that they seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Oh drinking age nice. You have to get late seating so you can hit both of the captain's cocktail parties; the early seating one and the late seating one. . Free cocktails. Also if you have cruised before put in your past guest number on the fun pass before you cruise for an invite to the past guest party (more free drinks).

I like to do the movie trivia, karaoke, and pee wee golf. Hanging by the pool and playing the pool games is also a blast. You may want to check for single mixers. Just to let you know a "Friend of Dorothy" meeting is the gays and Lesbian meeting. The "Friends of Bill W" meeting is an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. So don't go to the Friends of Bill W meeting with a drink in hand saying, "Let's party." Have a great cruise.

I saw guys trying to crash both capts cocktail parties and were recognized by the staff. They were asked to leave. You may get away with it but unless you like blue margys or whiskey sours it isnt all that great. Plus I hate to see loud drunk people running around. I also heard that although Bill W and Dorothy meetings are published in the capers, they prefer to be low key about it. If I was in a Bill W meeting I wouldnt want gawkers because somebody told the world about our meetings. Just a suggestion...

I didn't tell the OP about the Bill W and Friends of Dorothy meets so she/he could gawk at the people. I told her/him about it because it appears in the caper and people don't know what it is. If you don't know you could show up at a meeting not knowing. Please people don't attend these meetings to gawk, I'm sure most people have more class then that.

As for the captain cocktail party you can order off the tray of drinks they bring around. So we order Long Island Teas. I'm guess the people you saw get throw out were being loud and annoying. We were being loud and entertaining so no one throw us out. Plus we tip the waiters because they work hard at these parties. Sorry you misunderstood my post I hope other didn't.
