    Only things a person has to be 21 for are drinking alcohol and boarding alone.  There is even a sign in the casino saying all guests over 18 are welcome.  

    My 19 year old went to all the venues with and without me. He participated in all kinds of things at the various bars/clubs and was even a team captain at Quest. 

    Thanks Teddy & AGSLC5, that’s really put my mind at ease. 👍🏼

    Our 17 and 20 year old went to the casino to play slots every night on our December cruise.   We didn't know until 2nd to last day of cruise.  

    They said no one from RCI monitored or asked them for ID.   Not sure if that helps.


    It sort of helps sort lol! I had a look here on the RC UK website and it says 18 or over for gambling - just don’t know if that’s the same all over! I thinking it is...fingers crossed!

  3. Hi folks, hope everyone is well.

    Can anyone advise if our 20 year old son is allowed in the casino and night clubs (on a Caribbean cruise - I know it’s different over here in Europe). 

    He’s not a drinker so no issue there, but he would like to go into the casino with us (understand he can’t gamble) and the night club with his older brother etc

    Thanks in advance

    The comedy show that's held in the small comedy club is the only one that you definitely should make reservations for.  

    The ice show, Aqua Theater, and main theater have dedicated seating for suites so as long as you are there 10 minutes before show time you should be able to find a seat in the reserved area.  Just have to show your SeaPass card if it isn't obvious ask where the reserved seating for suites is.  On Harmony and Allure the reserved area was in the balcony of the main theater, so I would assume it is the same on Oasis.

    Thanks AshleyDillo, very helpful :91_thumbsup:

  5. Hi all

    We're on 8th December Oasis of the Seas sailing (first cruise on Oasis class and also our honeymoon 😁)  and I'm just wondering about show reservations.

    I can see Cats (i understand that this is unmissable...or maybe not 😉) , the Ice skating show and a Comedy show or two, all available to reserve a space - although nothing for the Aqua show as yet. As Oasis is currently being amped, does this mean no Aqua shows are likely on our sailing, or am i just being paranoid?

    Also for the first time we're actually staying in a suite, so with regards to all show reservations do i still have to reserve a place, as i know there are always spaces roped off for suite guests etc. I don't want to reserve a space thereby blocking it for someone else if I don't need to etc etc.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes - saw the CocoCay post. Did they not realise that that would infuriate people further? Not the best way to treat a loyal market, especially since many can't fly to the USA for a cruise to CocoCay for a variety of reasons. I love Royal, but I did lose some respect for them yesterday. It's bad to remove a ship, but the way that it was handled moved the situation from bad to atrocious.

    Yes likewise Joe. I’m relatively new to Cruising and I’m very surprised at the way this has been handled - and to increase costs of the only other RC ship sailing out of Southampton for the same period is terrible. 

    They really have scored a massive own goal with the UK customers.

    Anyone else read Royal Caribbean UK's Twitter feed? Some of the responses they are giving sound like lines from a soap opera or pantomime.

    Awful isn’t it. The RCI UK Facebook page was appalling yesterday. First they publish that they cancelled all the Indy sailings as we know - in favour of Cococay cruises, which obviously caused uproar - then couple hours later they stick up a massive post promoting Cococay - talk about rubbing it in. There is some very annoyed customers out there and rightly so.

    Just noticed on Twitter that they’ve told those who had a cruise cancelled have been given a 25% cruise credit towards another cruise. However, people have said cruises for 2020 on the Anthem have increased up to £500 pp since the announcement of the Indy no longer coming here in 2020. Giving with one hand whilst taking it straight back with the other hand. Disgusting behaviour tbh

    That is terrible. Feel for those who have already booked, they probably had great deals - and will now be fleeced when trying to rebook. Poor show 

  9. The cost of sailing out of Southampton is exceptionally high, so much so that I have also been looking at flying across to Barcelona to sail from there in 2020 - even with flights and an overnight stay it works out cheaper.

    However...since yesterday the price of the cruise I was looking at (from Barcelona in Aug 2020) on Allure has suddenly increased over night by £210 ($280 approx) per person!

    Barcelona is obviously nearest RC departing port to Southampton and Royal will be fully aware that they will probably get some knock on bookings as a result of moving Indy out of the UK, the fact they have pushed prices up for these sailings is pretty calculated in my opinion.

    I hope you do!  ...but I wouldn't expect to find Guinness draught on Adventure.  

    The cans they have are those 'widget' draught cans that are common in the states.

    The world famous Guinness widget uses an ingenious nitrogen filled capsule that surges with bubbles when the ring pull is opened – replicating the draught experience in a can. 



    A widget Guinness isn’t too bad - I’ve actually got the Guinness Surger unit at home which replicates the ‘surge’ when combined with the specific Guinness Surger cans - still no replacement for a well poured pint tho!

    Was that cruise from Southampton?  If so glad to see they place a proper beer on tap when in the UK.  

    Indy out of FL in January didn't have Guinness on tap.  While they exist it's hard to find Guinness on tap at land pubs in the US.   

    Yes Twangster, it was from Southampton. So maybe a departing UK thing?  I assume then that I should not expect to see draft Guinness available when we are on Adventure in a couple of weeks time!
