When booking a cruise with RCCL, it needs to be at least one person over 21 years in the stateroom.
If someone books 2 staterooms, are they allowed to switch rooms during the cruise?
Do many of you do this on regular basis?
I've heard people cruising with other lines, lets their children have their own stateroom,
which is not possible with Royal Caribbean?

Actually with most cruiselines if there is anyone in the cabin under the age of 21, then there has to be an adult 25 or older in the same cabin. Two 21 year olds can book a cabin, but a 21 year old and a 20 year old cannot. The only exception is if the couple is married and brings documentation to show.

Some of the cruiselines will allow the parents to book into one cabin with the children either next to them or across the hall. Some of the cruiselines also have the connecting cabins.

As far as booking into cabins then switching once you are on the ship, this can be done, but keep in mind that the shipboard credit is attached to whichever cabin you were originally assigned to. Also, most of the cruise lines on board cards with your ID is also the key to the cabin.

JuniorCruise,

I know it is difficult to understand some of many U.S. cruise lines' policies from a European point of view.

European cruise lines are usually considerably more liberal when it comes to this - the downside being that they are also more liberal when it comes to e.g. smoking. http://cruise-chat.com/groupee_commo...n_rolleyes.gif

Royal Caribbean was founded by Norwegian shipping companies, and has a lot of Norwegian employees!
How could it get that American in all different ways? http://cruise-chat.com/groupee_commo...on_biggrin.gif
Raoul, I'm glad RCCL has changed their smoking policy by now =)

I'm pretty sure Royal Caribbean has abandoned this rule, and there needs to be just a 21 year old in each cabin.

Yeah, that's what I though?

It also states the person under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. That statement can get tricky. I went round and round with another cruise line on the definition of legal guardian. I had a 19 year old where the group leader (35 years old) signed for responsibility. That's where it got tricky. The cruise line tried saying it had to be a court appointed guardian. Everything worked out. But we went round and round for a day or so and this was just before they were to sail! Bottom line, just make sure you are totally clear on the rules and that you have any necessary paperwork all in order.
