Default Age requirement to travel with friends

My friends and I are planning to go on a cruise, and I was wondering how old do we need to be to travel on a cruise without a parent. We are all 17 or 18. Any advice to this question would be great! Thanx!

On most cruise lines you have to be 21 or older, or married, to cruise without a guardian.

Under 21 you'd need someone 25 or older in the cabin.

On Princess cruise line you can book yourself if you are 18 or older.

Under 18 you'll need a parent or guardian with you.

each cruise lines policy varies, go to RCCL's web site and you will find the policy in writing.

Hi SeaCrystal22,

This is from the RCL site:

Royal Caribbean
What is Royal Caribbean International's Age Policy?
No guest under the age of twenty-one (21) will be booked 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. Please note: An individual's age on the date of sailing determines his or her status for the entire cruise vacation.
Here's the link:


From the Princess site:

The minimum passenger age is 6 months on Alaska, Canada/New England, Caribbean, Europe, Mexico and Transcanal cruises, and 12 months on all other cruises. Passengers under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a Passenger over the age of 21.
Here's the link:


Looks like you'll have to wait until everyone's 18 .
