My friends and I are planning a cruise trip for our Senior trip... Does anyone know what would be the most fun for the money? We are looking for a 4 night cruise. We don't care about rooms, as we will just be using them to sleep, so somewhere around $300-$500 per person would be the best range. Carnival or any other cruise line... any suggestions?

I just learned the drinking age was 21, but heard that it really doesn't matter as long as you're over 18.

This sounds as if this is your first cruise? Even if it's your fifth, definitely engage a travel agent---somebody local that you can meet with face to face. They can indeed get you very good prices, and you will be glad to have their advice and protection.

You'll have all of your questions answered and all of your crises averted.

Bon Voyage!

I would have to agree with Lana. Once a travel agent gets to know you, he/she would be able to connect you to the right ship. Good advice.

Wow... what a bummer. I'm not sure we will be able to get someone that old to go with us. If we did, however, would he/she be able to "OK" our whole group?

This will probably be very early in January 2006... I'm just wondering what specific Carnival cruise would be best.

Carnival sounds like a perfect fit. There will be tons of other graduates on the ship with you and I suspect it will be a major party zone.

Driv, please be aware that many cruise lines have a policy that at least one person in each cabin must be over 21 or over 25, depending on the cruise line. Since you have to submit passport information before or at the time of boarding, there's no getting around it. Check the cruise line(s) you're considering for their policy.

Drive300mph,
If you click here you will read Carnival's policy regarding to age of passengers per cabin. Very important to abide by....there's no way of faking it. Good luck!

Also Drive,
Once you do get onboard, there are other age restrictions to be aware of. You can read these by clicking here .

Have a great time!

Driv, if you use more than one cabin, you need someone that "old" in each cabin. There are some rooms that hold 4 people, and in that case, there could be 3 18-year olds but the 4th person must be 21 or older.

One 21-year old can NOT "OK" the whole group. There must be one in each cabin.

On Carnival the chaperone for each cabin has to be 25.
