Cruise Company Overview – RCCL
New Ship Builds
In 2012 five ships underwent a complete transformation including Rhapsody of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Grandeur of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas andEnchantment of the Seas.
The minimum drinking age for all alcoholic beverages on Royal Caribbean International
ships sailing from North America is 21. The minimum drinking age for all alcoholic
beverages on Royal Caribbean International ships sailing from South America, Europe,
Asia, Australia and New Zealand is 18. In certain circumstances where local laws permit or require, Royal Caribbean International may modify this policy which may also require parent/guardian request/authorization.
For purposes of complying with the minimum drinking age requirements, a guest’s age
is established upon boarding at the beginning of the cruise vacation.
If a guest celebrates their birthday during the cruise vacation, and thereby becomes of age to consume alcohol, the guest may thereafter ask the Guest Services Manager to modify ship’s records to permit their consumption of alcohol during the remainder of the
child/young adult at all times while on a Royal Caribbean International cruise vacation.
Guests who violate any alcohol policy, including but not limited to underage drinking;
providing alcohol to minors or young adults; possessing, concealing or attempting to
conceal alcoholic items in their luggage, when boarding or while onboard; engaging in
alcohol drinking games; or failing to consume alcohol responsibly, will be considered for discipline under the provisions of this policy.
Bringing Alcohol Onboard
Guests are not allowed to bring beer, hard liquor or non-alcoholic beverages onboard for consumption or any other use.
Additional bottles of wine beyond two (2) bottles that are brought onboard or any alcoholic beverages purchased in ports-of-call or from Shops On Board will be stored by the ship and delivered to your stateroom on the last day of the sailing. Alcoholic beverages seized on embarkation day will not be returned.
