Default NCL - Cruise at 18?

I was told that NCL is one of, if not the only cruise line that allows people to cruise without parents/legal guardians at the age of 18 rather than 21. Fact or fiction? I'd really appreciate your response. Thanks!

Emily, I have never heard of this and doubt that it is true. The same rules apply to cruise ships pretty much as they do to hotels. Actually the ships are a bit stricter. You may have to wait a few years to cruise on your own.........Nita

My husband and I just returned from your first cruise on the Sun. I saw lots of children on board. We are now considering a family cruise. We have 4 children and two are under age 18. Can teenagers stay in a stateroom by themselves without an adult registered in that room?

Marilyn, what you do is reserve the rooms using your name and kids in one room, hubby and kid or kids in another. When you get on the ship no one gives a darn who is in which cabin. This is done all the time. We did it with our daughter, son inlaw and 2 grand daughters when the girls were only 14 and 10. Have done it with them 3 times since. You will have a ball and so will the kids if they don't kill each other before the week is over..............glad you liked the Sun, we loved it..........newmexicoNita

The last time I checked to book a young client (19 year old), which was about 4 months ago, NCL did allow 18 year olds to book a cabin by themselves. Princess was also allowing this, however, I think they may have changed their policies.

As far as children having their own cabin, it has been my experience, as a TA and a traveler, that as long as a parent or legal guardian is in a cabin within close proximity to the childrens cabin, the cabins can be reserved under the children's names. I have done this numberous times for clients and for myself twice. I'm not fond of making reservations in one name an then switching cabins once onboard the ship. It creates the possibility for some real hassles as far as the Sign and Sail card go. If it were really necessary to satisfy the cruiseline's policy, I would do it, but prefer to just book things as they are really going to be.
