Default a guy's first cruise

so i will be going on a cruise with my family in july..
err i don't really know what to expect because this is
my first cruise..

i'm really a kid at heart but i turn 18 in june,
so i don't know if i'm in the teen category or the adult category..
(haha i actually wanted to go on the disney cruise,
but my 19 year old sis didn't want to)

i read some posts that some carnival's let 18 year olds into
02, but i'm not sure if i'm allowed..

anyways, great to be aboard ^_^

Hello,
Sounds exciting! I am not too sure, but I think if you can prove to them that you are still a student by showing them some student id, the youth leaders may bend the rules. I heard of many cases where this would happen but im not 100% sure. Anyway, even if you dont get into O2 im sure your cruise will still be amazing!

Pete

First off welcome to cruisemates! I'm Ainsley. I'm 18 years old and I have been on 8 cruises and absolutely LOVE it!!! By chance do you know what ship you are going on?? With you being 18 before your sailing I doubt that you will be able to go into Club O2 for the plain and simple fact its summertime and there will already be TONSS of teens onboard. But I'm sure you can go in there when the O2 director isnt there and just chill out until its time for their scheduled activities and then they might ask you to leave. Who knows you might be able to chill out in there. It all depends on the O2 director. Just act clueless if they try and explain the age thing.. haha. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.

bah, you've lost your sparkle of youth!
lol jk

but anyways, i've been wondering this for a while,
what exactly goes on on a cruise?
i mean, my current view of a cruise is kind of like
a spa/hotel on water? i've been looking at posts and
it seems i really like carnival (omg i love no curfew!) but
nobody ever seems to talk about what kind of activities that take place on a ship...
lol cause i'm a bit of a nerd

would anybody care to enlighten me?

I never really seem to do the group activities when I am on a cruise,
I usually meet a group of friends right after boarding and just hang out with them and have fun the rest of the cruise
