Default Gambling Age

Is the gambling age still 18 or did they change that to 21? Also, do you have to show ID to gamble or is your seapass enough to show?


Thank you,

We were on SOS 2 weeks ago and the gambling age was 18. My daughter is 20 and she never had to show proof of age.

GAMBLING POLICY
Guests eighteen (18 ) years of age and older are welcome to play in our casinos (for all Alaska sailings, guests must be 21 years of age in order to play in our casinos).

I stand corrected.

So, if your not going to Alaska, and you are 18 you are ALLOWED to gamble? And if so, do you have to show ID or is sea pass enough.

On our recent Monarch cruise, the security at the casino entrance was asking these 2 young men for the Sea Passes so I'm guessing it is noted on there somewhere if you can drink or gamble.

Thank you, thank you.....

I too wonder if it is noted on the seapass card..your age that is? If not then what do you have to do bring your license with you...So much for just pass ports needed...

You Passport has your DOB on it.

Some lines punch a hole in the sea pass for those under 21.

If you really really want to gamble in the casino, I suggest you call Royal and ask them OR just be prepared with anything you might need. Once you're on board and you find out you didn't bring proper ID it will be too late. Problems like that are SO easily avoided by using good common sense. (unlike that couple that were denied boarding on their honeymoon for lack of proper ID)

Your seapass is probably all you need. My daughter's had a hole punched in her's to show she was under 21.

well passport will be there and is a given.........was just wondering if you needed your license to gamble or if sea pass showed enough ID as far as age went. Would hate to sit down at a table an be ID and have to go back up in your room to get passport......I really don't think that I'd like my kid to have to carry his passport around with him once he is on the ship. Would think that seapass would have some kinda age stated on there.......would make thinks a lot easier......shall I say.

On the 6-8/6-15 AOS cruise, if you had holes in your card (meaning under 21) and the staff saw it ID was requested. They were carding people and some who were over 18 got in a bit of hot water for charging chips to their parents seapass accounts. Not by RCCL, but by their parents.

I'm not worried about the charging of chips..in the casino...I just want to make sure that gambling age is 18.... that is my only concern. And if it is, then does my kid need to carry his ID with him when he is sitting at a table.
