I saw that RCCL changed there policy for beer and wine to age 21 except for cruise leaving from South America and Europe. Does anyone know if parents signing the waiver for a cuise in the Caribbean, will also allow a 19 yr old to get beer and wine?

No more waivers for any Caribbean cruises leaving from a U.S. port.

I agree with the 21 year old policy when it comes to consuming drinks, wait until you are 21 to drink if you must drink at all, but of course that is just my opinion because I don't drink.

The 21 year old limit is stupid as hell, especially on a ship!

Just got back from my western Caribbean cruise today and the over 21s were bad enough on alcohol...I can't imagine what those under 21 could do. There was one woman who was so drunk she couldn't stand up at the lifeboat drill before we even left port! Of course those were also the people who turned out to get the most seasick - go figure!!

Believe me hon, there's enough fun to be found on a cruise, you won't need the alcohol to have it! Jewel of the Seas had a teens only disco called Fuel that seemed to be quite popular!

I think that with the parents present, wine at least should be served. We sailed on Explorer for our Christmas cruise this year and felt like criminals when we ordered wine with our Christmas eve dinner. Not only did the staff humiliate us (adults) but refused to put wine glasses on our table for the next six days. they would not even offer the wine list. While I don't condone underage drinking, wine at Christmas for an 18 and a 19 year old seems OK.
We asked some of staff what was going on with this particular cruise and was told by several that they were deliberately driving profits down to show thier own disagreement with the policy.
