Default gambling/drinking age

Is the gambling age still 18 and is the drinking age now 21?

Thanks all.

Q: Why do I need a beverage waiver?

A: Effective as of all sailings commencing on or after July 28, 2006, the minimum drinking age for all alcoholic beverages on all Royal Caribbean International ships is 21.

On cruises departing from European and South American countries, where the legal drinking age is typically lower than 21, a parent who is sailing with his or her son(s) and/or daughter(s) who is between the ages of 18 to 20, may sign a waiver allowing the 18 to 20 year old to consume alcoholic beverages. Please note: Waivers will be provided to parents upon check-in.

The 18- to 20 year-old must agree to comply with Royal Caribbean's policies, including among other things, agreeing to not provide alcoholic beverages to any other person, regardless of age. Restrictions apply, and this policy is subject to change without notice.

It always seems that way to me too, although sadly the truth is the older I get everyone under 22 looks like a child to me

Default Drinking

Your sea pass will give the indication of eligibility for drinking. But then there are many 21-22 years olds that will buy booze for their buddies and simply pass it around.
And yes, we seen bartenders and casino personnel ask for additional ID.
