How come the brouchure of NCL said that the legal gambling/drinking age is 21? while Royal Caribbean legal gambling/drinking age is 18?

Why is the drinking age in most US states 21 and there isn't any in Mexico? Why are there dry counties? How some companies give their employees a week off during the Christmas holidays and others make them work?

These cruise lines are not governed by the US and each is their own company. They can make any rules they want. While in the US port the casino is not open. In fact it is closed in most ports.

I think most drinking ages are imposed to keep young kids from getting intoxicated and jumping overboard and to just keep control. Look at some so called adults that have a few drinks in them. Look at what goes on at Cancun during spring break. I am sure that the cruise lines do not want that image.

Hi Ridgid,
I am not questioning what the legal age should be. I am asking this question to know the difference between the two cruise liners. Perhaps one is registered in Bahamas, whereas the other is registered elsewhere?
It's just strange to see the age gap when both of these liners travel to the same ports.
Thank you

It simply has to do with company policy. Once they leave the three mile mark, cruise ships are in internaitonal waters and no longer must abide by the land based restrictions. They are imposed at the discretion of the cruise line. RC has taken a somewhat liberal attitude and allows those that are 18-20 to drink beer and wine and gamble.
