IslandCruz- The casino DOES card for age (at least on Carnival) anyone who looks young is asked for ID. I'm sure there may be some tables where a old enough looking person might not get carded, but most of the time I have seen it.
================================================== ========== Carnival Cruise Lines:
Fantasy 90, Celebration 95, Victory 05, Conquest 05, Spirit 6/06, Freedom 6/08, Holiday 7/08, Victory 6/09, Valor 9/09, Dream 6/10, Splendor 8/10,Conquest 8/11,Magic 11/11,Triumph 4/12,Spirit 7/12,Freedom 11/12, Triumph 2/13 - The fire cruise
NCL Dream October 2006, RCCL Mariner OTS June 2007, Celebrity Silhouette 2013
The post said no one is checking at the door. I would sincerely hope they would check obvious Children and kick them out. I was reffering to enter the Casino. It is not a gate type thing checking ID's.

drinks - suck it up. The reason the cruise lines are doing this is that most "kids" are totally irresponsible when it comes to drinking.
They are doing what they need to do to avoid a lawsuit from your outraged parents when you get blitzed and fall off the ship because you decided in a drunken haze to climb over the rail so you can pee in the ocean and fall in!
If you want to go someplace you can drink your butt off, go to Mexico (cheapest place I can think of). As long as you can reach the bar with your money, they'll take it and sell you another! PLEASE, just stay off any ship I happen to be on.
Being a parent of daughters 18, 20 and 21 I must say the security agent carded the girls EVERY TIME they went into the over 18 club (which opened at 11pm). I sat and watched for a while. Security carded everyone, whether ot not they had just come and gone recently! No matter. They checked and re-checked those ID's! (Good).
