Age Requirements

Families With Children

Most cruise lines welcome children to travel on their ships, though infants and pregnant women are subject to some restrictions (click here to read more).

Families booking more than one cabin may be subject to minimum age requirements for kids staying in a separate cabin. Your Vacations To Go cruise counselor can check these requirements for you, once you have found a cruise you are interested in.

Royal Caribbean requires that at least one person in each cabin is 21 or older. Age requirements are subject to change and should be verified with your Vacations To Go cruise counselor prior to booking.

An exception may be made for underage married couples, as long as they are both 18. These couples may be asked to show proof of their marriage. This exception should be confirmed by your Vacations To Go cruise counselor prior to booking.

Your age on the date of sailing is generally considered your age for the length of the cruise.

Consumption of Alcohol

The minimum drinking age for all alcoholic beverages on all Royal Caribbean ships is 21. However, on cruises departing from European and South American countries, where the legal drinking age is typically lower than 21, a parent who is sailing with his or her son(s) and/or daughter(s) who is between the ages of 18 to 20 may sign a waiver allowing the 18- to 20-year-old to consume alcoholic beverages.

Gambling Onboard

Gambling, a popular form of entertainment on cruise ships, also has age restrictions. Royal Caribbean requires passengers to be 18 or older to play in casinos, except for Alaska cruises (passengers must be 21 or older).
