Default General age of cruisers

Hi, some friends and I are planning on taking a cruise for New Years of 2009. Most of us will be turning 21 this year and want to have a good time with some people our age. So we are wondering what cruiseline is more suitable to people our age. Thanks!

I think you'll find what you are looking for in a cruise by going with either Carnival or Royal Caribbean.

Thanks. But the problem we found that we would run into is there will be a couple of 20 year old cruisers and they wouldn't be able to go without a 25 year old guardian or parent on Carnival. Is that true? And if it is, is there the same type of rule on Royal Carribean? Or is there a way to get around that 25 year old guardian rule with Carnival?

Q: What is Royal Caribbean International's Age Policy?

A: No guest under the age of twenty-one (21) will be reserved in a stateroom unless accompanied by an adult twenty-one (21) years of age, or older. This age limit will be waived for minor children sailing with their parents or guardians in adjacent staterooms or under-aged married couples (proof of marriage is required). Royal Caribbean International reserves the right to ask for proof of age.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

I recommend that if you want to obtain the lowest pricing, skip the group pricing. To many things happen and you loose your perks and somtimes pricing. Shop for the lowest availible pricing and if you reach a group size. Your travel agent can arrange perks for each cabin and or passenger.
Happy Sailing
