Carnival is making an exception to the Age Policy for Military personnel regarding the stateroom policy.

Source: Carnival Cruise Lines

"Our Military cruise policy allows military personnel 18, 19 and 20 years old and guests in the same stateroom to cruise on Carnival -- which is an exception to our Age Policy. Military personnel in a Delayed Entry program are not eligible until they are on active duty. Proof of Military eligibility which includes either a copy of their military LES (Leave and Earning statement) or, for Cadets, a letter from his/her Commander or a copy of a military paystub must be submitted to the Interline Desk at the time of booking for verification. In both cases, social security numbers must be blacked out or removed. In addition proof of Military eligibility will be required upon cruise check in."

Way To Go Carnival!

That is very good of Carnival to do. If they are old enough to put their life on the line for their country, they should be old enough to go on a cruise if that is what they choose to do with their R&R time.

Definitely a thumbs up for CCL

What about the other policy that is restricted to age 21 and over?

If you are old enough to drive an M1 Abrams or Leopard II tank in Iraq or Afghanistan, you should be old enough to have a beer.

Actually the U.S. military has very strict rules regarding alcohol consumption by those under 21. There are exceptions and in some cases local commanders can allow those under 21 to drink on special occasions, but generally the military goes by 21 to drink.

I can offer personal testimony dating back to 1977 when I was stationed as NAS Willow Grove in Pennsylvania. The state drinking age was 21 and the base followed suit.
