sometimes, it just depends on which line. i know that the cruises i've been on, they have a list of every passenger under 18 that says how old they are, and the staff can check that list at anytime to tell you "no way".

dude its a teen club not boot camp, if you look younger/older than the age limit then they are gunna ask you how old you are and aslong as you dont look super young or old then you can just lie about it and that will be cool

if you look the right age then they probably wont even come upto you

oh yeah thanks mr. obvious.

i was on a cruise with my sister a few years ago, and even though i was plenty old enough to get in (and there were people who looked older than me) and they still checked my age.

im not trying to get into an argument here, im just stating an experience, so calm down!

Depends, sometimes the check sometimes they dont. Carnival does I know that, they dont want younger teens in there.

If she looks older the director might let her in.

For those of you ho are sugguesting lying first off, i agree lmao, if it works shoot for it but remember all the RC ships now have special laptops that they can scan your SeaPass and it immediatly shows your age and picture. Whether they choose to use it or not is up to the security guards. Chances are though that they will check everyone. Also many cruise lines are now marking your Seapass or Sail and Sign or w.e the card is on that line by age like for instance recently we traveled the mariner and Sov. of the Seas and they used 2 diff. hole punchers, star for 12-14 and a flower for 15-17. Carnival ships all have a passenger manifest in the clubs of all the people onboard between the ages of 12 and 17 that tells your name and age. Chances are however unless you look too young theywill not bother you as Carnival is pretty slack about checking for ages (and that goes for the adult clubs too ). Any Questions IM, PM or E-mail Ryanspecialevent@msn.com

when i was on royal carribean in november the 12-14yr olds were in the same room as 15-17 yr olds. it didnt bother anybody and some of the younger kids hung out with us cause you reallly didn't know how old anyone was anyway untill you asked. and it was suprising how young sopme poeple were compared to their looks.

Agreed, many ships are cracking down on mingling between the age groups because of the liability of the Legal Age Of Consent. NYorkbabyy08, what ship wereyou on. It seems odd that they would have you in the same room unless it was the sovereign or a similar ship that does not have seperat facilities for the Living Room and Fuel (or Optix depending on the ship). The Voyager class ships for RC are really the best as they have Fuel mainly for 15-17 but 12-14 is in there a good bit too, but the living room seems to be, on those ships, a common ground for all ages 12+, which is good because like for instance: there are 14 year olds who are in HS which sucks for them because it must suck to be in HS and be stuck in a group with kids in 6 and 7th grade. Personally i think the ships should have a 12- 13/14 group and the group which is 15-17 now, should be High School Students that way 14 year olds who are in HS can be part of the activities as well as 18 year olds who are still in HS. Their policies really suck when you travel with friends and are spereated by age groups. Lol ok thats my $.02!

sure its possible if u look it. but some ships are more strict than others and they may check how old u are before u go in. but i personally think that if u seem and act old enough itll be alright. have a good time!

No on Carnival, it has a lot to do with legal issues!!!

RCCL has a checklist and will mark you off or punch a hole in your card.

Default ages for teen clubs

i'm young for someone in my grade. cuz i don't turn 16 until september and i'm going to be a junior. so back when i was going into 8th grade, i was still 12.

i was on an NCL cruise which doesn't separate the teens and it's just 13-17. i already made friends before the first night so we all went together. i told them i was 13 cuz that's how old most 8th graders are and i wanted to be in the teen club. i didn't think it was gonna be a problem, cuz on costa (which was all i've been on before this cruise) they never checked and i was 11 and hung out with the teens and they never knew. so when we all left the disco and went to another place to hang out, they stood by the door and checked everyone's age before we were allowed in, and of course all my new friends go in, but me and they yelled at me and told me to leave. i was so mad.. and so were my friends that i met. so they all left and we never went back to do the teen stuff except the disco, which they never checked. i thought that was stupid.

I just got back from an internship working with and learning about Club O2 on the Fantasy and i've seen that there are many differences between ships. On the Fantasy we have a passenger manifest of everyone from 0-18 and we check their name and age then if they are ok for CO2 then we give them a Club O2 sticker. However when i got onboard and got the DL, we were to let anyone who was 14 and 4 months all the way to anyone who was 18 1/2 and under. The diversity in the club was pretty vast, whereas on Dan's ship they appear to be strict. As for RC, if you are within 1 month of 15 you must attend 3 activities for your age group and then if you still want to your parents can sign a waiver stating that they want you moved up to the 15-17 group and then you will be moved up.

Hey,
I'm gonna be 16 when I go on my cruise on March Break of 2006. I'm going with my cousin who will also be 16. So we will have no problem wutsoever getting into the club/disco thing right? And also, I hear we can't have alcohol and **** on the cruise if we're under 18 or 21 or some age like that..that definitely sucks!..
Will we be able to get into the 18+ club or is that outta the question? If anyone knows some of these answers..could you please tell me? Thanks a lot, guys.
Lola.

Ok well heres my disclaimer and info:

~ If you are under the legal age for drinking aboard your ship then do not drink.

Ok that being said, no you can not take alcoholic beverages into the teen clubs on any ship. The drinking age on different cruise lines is different. Royal Caribbean Ships it is 18 for beer and wine and 21 for drinks containing liquor. On ALL Carnival Ships drinking age for all beverages is 21. (Princess is owned by Carnival) I personally know from my experiences working with carnival this summer that if you come into the teen club intoxicated or with an alcoholic beverage then you will be apprehended by security and could cause the club to be shut down which is not theway to make friends if you get my drift. As for the adult clubs, there is another post where there was plenty of flaming and rude comment made over a simple matter but in essence here it is: On Carnival owned ships usually there is security at the entrance of all the night clubs. Some ships have electronic computers which scan your boarding card and tell your age. If this is the case then yes it is out of the question. Trust me, i'm your age and have been on many many cruises, you do not want to hang in the adult club. You will have a much better time chilling in the teen club, which on Princess ships is very cool. Keep in mind that this is also where all the other teens your age will be meeting. FYI if you do get into the adult club, do not try ordering anything from the bar, they will have to charge your boarding card/ship account and when scanned it will reveal your age and you will be screwed. You will find however that the adult club is usually filled with just that, adults usually older adults and not the 18-20 college crowd you are imagining. Try searching these boards in the teen section, many times the questions you have have already been answeres elsewhere. If you have more questions and want the honest answers to them then send me a private message or an e-mail at Ryanspecialevent@msn.com

U mentioned that you were concerned about alcohol on your cruise in the above sentence therefore i tossed in my $.02 about drinking on ships. It seems u do care about drinking but if not then good.
