U – Underage

Posted by

It’s Monday again.  I hope all of the Mom’s out there had an amazing Mother’s day.  I had an awesome day. With my partner in crime off to travel the country for the next couple of weeks I will be prepping the house for a family full of goodness come June.

I can’t believe how quickly this year is going by.  The blog is already up to the letter “u”.  So for “u” let’s talk about being underage.  Even though Carnival Cruise is all about the family atmosphere and all of the loads of fun families can have together, there are age restrictions on certain things.

First, you must be 21 years old to drink alcoholic beverages unless you have a sister named Samantha that fudges on the rule.  Just kidding…you really have to be 21 years old.  Now it is true that in Mexico the legal drinking age is 18 years old.  So by all means you 18 to 20 year olds have your legal drinking fun in Mexico but remember on the ship you have to be 21.

There is a section on the ship that is for adults only.  Yes, you may think that 18 is an adult and how it’s completely unfair to be looked at as still a child but it is what it is.  The Serenity area is for 21 year old or older to go.  No, you may not be over 21 and think it’s ok to bring your child up to the Serenity area because after all “they are well behaved children.”  Even with a parent or guardian no one under the age of 21 is allowed.

It’s all fun and games in Las Vegas if you are 21 years old but on the ship you only have to be 18!  That’s right, gambling in international waters is legal for any person 18 or over.  If you are going to gamble at any legal age please gamble responsibly.  You lose all your money that’s on you and age is no excuse. Parents you may not have your children in the casino.  It’s the rule at all casinos so don’t make a big deal about it on the cruise ship.

Dance club for anyone under the age of 18 is a no go after 10:00 p.m.  Sorry 17 year old you will have to put your dancing shoes away.  You also cannot attend the late comedy shows if you are under the age of 18.  Please be aware of the age groups for the Carnival kids clubs. Club O2 is for kids ages 15-17 years old.  Circle C is for ages 12-14.  Camp Ocean is for ages 2 to 11.

The Breeze has a ton of fun activities for kids of all ages.  Find the things that are right for you and are age appropriate.  Sorry not all of you are as old as me so you can’t do it all.  I guess if I’m going to be way old it comes with some privileges.
