Don't you think the 15 to 17 year olds might find YOU to immature for them? Think about what you just said.

It is worth a try, but I believe that RCCL is very strict with their age group. I would suggest talking to one of the "counslers" as they call it.

If you just try to "sneak" in they will find it immature and just ask you to leave.

Carnival is strict too, its just the way the system works!

thank you!


well. i jsut kinda find it dumb that their ages are from 12-14 and 15-17 because when your 14, most of the time you are a freshman in high school. and usually freshmans in high school dont want to hang out with 6th graders. and since you are a freshman, you go to school with people in the 15-17 range.


eh. whatever. haha.

Hey i went on the voyager in 2004 when i was 14. i was 2 month from being 15 like you and a freshman. i went to the teen place and talked to one of the person and told them this and they let me into the club at that time and hang with that age group. although the rest of the week they didnt care who came in anymore. but like the before posts you must realize then that you will then be the young one. and as a senior i would not want to hang out with a freshman, no offense.

yeah, i kind of agree with you on that.


but to tell you the honest truth, and i dont mean to sound concieted or anything because its not always a good thing...but, almost all of my friends are seniors or juniors this year, very few are younger than that.

and i dont act my age. i always hung out wiht older people and i cant stand people that i go to school with because they are so immature. but, i also have gotten asked multiple times like, what college im going to. and...im not going to college next year. hahaha.

The way we've done it on the Mariner, Sovereign, and Explorer was that if you are within 1 month of being 15, your parents sign the age bracket move waiver and ur good to go, other wise it is up to the counselor and they may go with the option of: go to 2-3 of your age group's events (12-14) and if you still dont fit in, then your parents can sign off and you can move. It is pretty strict on RC, some carnival ships are strict, i know we werent at all on the Fantasy unless you were like 13 or something but honestly it really depends on whether or not the "Counselor" is in a good mood. Unfair i know, but as i have mentioned before i agree, 14 y.o's are usually freshmen and hang with a 15-17/18 crowd, as i've sad before i think that the groups on the ships should be Middle School (Now 12-14) and High School (Now 15-17)

the only thing i can disagree with that on, is that if you are 14...most likely, like me, you are a freshman in high school. not in middle school. and, if you were a freshman in high school, would you really wanna hang out with a 12 year old, or someone who was in 6th grade? i know i wouldnt.

Mabye i wasnt clear, INSTEAD of a 12-14 group it should be middle school students since most of the 12-14 group are middle schoolers and then INSTEAD of a 15-17 group it should be High School which would allow all high school students 14-18 to enjoy that age group.

Carnivals not too bad. I sneaked into the higher age group for at least 4 out of the 7 days of the cruise. i only got booted once. RCCL however has bouncers that card you, or thats what i saw last time i was on RCCL (summer '04)

RCI is most strict about the age groups. On carnival it depends on the ship, on the fantasy we were really slack about holding up the regs. That is mainly in part to the fact that Carnivals ships rarely have the staff to check ID. There is 1 Club O2 Director which is also the DJ, Social Host and Bartender. RC has 2-3 staff members in the clubs at all times. Plus the Voyager and Freedom class ships have increased technology and more ways to boot ur butt out lol
