Default Cruising @ 17 or 18?

UGH!

My dilemma.

I turn 18 on January 7, 2008.

Should I wait till after I turn 18 to cruise-- or should I try and convince my dad to book a cruise before I turn 18?

Also, Dec. 21 - Jan. 6th is winter break, when we usually cruise and my dad can NEVER cruise during Spring Break because of Tax Season.

I do want to have fun and chill with in the teen area... bleh.

I hate, yet love getting old.

Ideas? Comments? Questions?

What should I do!?

I'd try and get in while you were still 17. Once you turn 18 you are still too young to drink and you cannot join in the teen activities. My son just turned 18 when we went and complained of not really having a good place to hang out.

No, at 18 on many islands you can drink legaly, and you'll still be able to met kids who are around your age, 17, 19 etc.. You just have to be outgoing and met them around the boat. The cruise i'm going on this year i'll be 18. I'm excited. It'll be fun.

I went on the Crown Princess last summer as an 18 year old and it was definitely a lot harder to meet people than when I was younger in the teen club! But you'll definitely eventually meet somebody in the same boat as you are. I also think it was a lot harder because I was on Princess. But once I did meet people it was a good time. The only retarded thing was the drinking age. They were really strict about it, especially in the club! (A bunch of us got kicked out of the club the last night because of it) It wasn't hard bringing liquor on the boat becuase you just got it in the islands and put it in the big water bottles they gave you but if you wanted beer you had to pay someone to get it for you and that was a rip off! Anyway back to the subject, all in all your definitely gonna have a good time because your on a cruise but try to get your parents to book on royal carribbean or carnival.

Well, unless some cruise comes up in the next couple days at a really cheap price.... I'm not going anywhere, ever again, as a minor.

I turn 18 on January 7th.

=[[

Oh well... No more cruises for a couple of years, I guess.

so, i was really worried.
because i WAS going to be cruising 'alone' (w/o friend or cousin or whatever) at 18. on spring break.
but now, my friend is coming with me. and shes 18.
SO EXCITED.


so on princess...
at 18.
is it generally like, our parents in the 'club'?
or is it a bunch of partying teenagers for spring break?
