Royal Caribbean to Lower Drinking Age

Posted on Thursday, November 10, 2011 |
In an attempt to bring the line's policies more in line with the cultural norms in it's cruising grounds, Royal Caribbean will introduce a new policy from Spring 2012. All cruises sailing from South America, Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand will have a drinking age of 18. As around half of the line's passengers are from outside of the United States where drinking ages are lower, this will be a welcome change for those 18-20 year olds who are used to having a beer when they want one.

Previously, the policy was that passengers over the age of 18 could drink on cruises originating from those places only if if their parents agreed to sign a waiver allowing it.

On cruises from North America, the drinking age will remain at 21.
