Why can't people under 25 cruise without other supervision anyway? My nieces, one is 24 and in Medical school and the other 23 and in graduate school are both married and very responsible young adults. Both their husbands are graduates and have responsible positions. But technically they won't be able to cruise on our upcoming family reunion cruise unless they have other (over 25) adult supervision, for Pete's sake.
They are adult enough to serve in armed forces and sacrifice their lives, they are adult enough to be sued or sue, they are adult enough to buy alcohol, they are adult enough to own credit cards, they are adult enough to have children and raise another human being, they are adult enough to serve in government and represent millions of constituents, etc. etc.
But they're not adult enough to buy a ticket on the Explorer of the Seas! ! They have to have Mommy and Daddy go along! ! ! Geeeeez ! !
Really? I know there is a rule on most cruise ships that if you are 17 or younger, you have to be accompanied by an adult who is at least 25 or older. Is that the rule you are talking about?
I know many people who were under 25 and cruised alone.
Just checked Royal Caribbean brochure. It states as follows.
No guest under the age of 21 will be booked in a stateroom unless accompanied by and adult 25 years or older. This age limit will be waived for underaged married couples (proof of marriage is required at check-in) or minor children sailing with their parents or gardians in adjacent staterooms.
If your TA told you oterwise you need a new TA.
It's under 21 years of age Thomas. I agree though and think there should be at least some exceptions like married folks and military. I remember well when I was serving my country in Vietnam I was unable to vote or drink being under 21 but I was darn sure allowed to die, kill others, and order others into battle with deaths expected. Just seemed so stupid to me then and now.
no under 21 without a 25 year old in cabin!
no drinking under the age of 21, but allowed in bars after 11:00 at 18!
no gambling under 21, ( they have the most disposable income though)!
then there are no activities for those 17-20! To young to drink, to old for teen club!
I couldn't agree with you more Jim. It's ludicrous to think someone is mature enough to die in battle, or serve in government, or marry and have children, but not mature enough to drink wine at the wedding reception ! !
Let's see; "You there, 18 year old, charge that building with the snipers in it and blow them to smithereens. And in 3 years from now you will be able to drink a beer!"
