Default College kids on cruises

The last time I cruised I was 14 so I fit pretty nicely into the "teen" catagory but this summer when I cruise I will be 19 and going into my sophmore year of college. I remember there was a ton of stuff for teens to do, and there were a TON of other teens, but does anyone know what the scene is like for college kids? Are there a lot on board? Also, does anyone know what the drinking age is on board? I will be sailing on Norwegian Cruise Line (Jewel) to Greece, Turkey and Egypt.

I'd appreciate any responses! Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that the drinking age is actually 18 being that its a European cruise. Even RCI has left their 18 beer and wine policy in place for European sailings (i think). Otherwise there is always the singles meetings, nightclubs and casino. Cruising when your older is fun but in a different way in that you get to enjoy all of the aspects of the ship that you were either barred from or didnt have interest in when you were younger.

The drinking age IS 18...but you can only drink wine and beer and need a parental consent form.

there are tons of college kids on cruises! im in college right now and i have cruised since i was a "younger" teen. i love cruising even more now that i can go in the adult clubs and gamble and stuff. i'm sure you'll meet plenty of people especially since it is summer! i dont know anything about the drinking age, but it makes sense that it would be 18 since its a european cruise.

on our last cruise, my sister was going to be a frosh in college. she's really shy so it's really hard for her to meet people without like a teen thing to go to. or usually i'd always introduce her to like MY friends' older sisters or brothers. so it took her awhile, but she met a lot of people. and they drank a lot.
