Teen activities

My senior high daughter just turned 18.  She'll have more in common with the 17 year olds then the adults, but due to her birthday being in winter, aged out of the teen clubs.  How stringent are they on ages?  Thanks.

In the past they have been extremely stringent in the teen clubs on Carnival.  She probably will be able to meet up with the teens elsewhere on the ship with no problem. The reason I qualify this as in the past, sometimes you find a person in charge who can think and understand why an 18 yo would be with her peers who are younger.  Good luck!

Although one could argue that there is no real difference between a 17 year old and an 18 year old, the 18 year old is legally an adult, and the liability of allowing adults and "children" together is too great for the cruise line to take a chance.

I am extremely confident that your 18 YO would do nothing untoward, however that 15 YO in the same room may make allegations.

It would be better for all concerned to keep them segregated from the teen clubs.

Nothing wrong (provided all parents agree) with allowing them to hang out together (figuratively speaking, of course) in the public areas.

Hhhmmm. If I found an 18 year-old hanging around my kid in a cruise ship kids' activity area...I'd be forced to hire a ninja assassin.

I think that unfortunately you should follow the rules in this case but I can understand your dilemma.  Perhaps she can meet others around the pool or the sports deck.  Talk to the counselors though to see what they say.
