A 20 year old can do anything a 21 year old can do, except drink.

There are scheduled 18-20 year old activities, but they are reported to be poorly attended.

Just off the Oasis with three between 18 and 20...plenty for them to do! Flow rider, rock climbing, mini golf, volleyball, basketball and dodgeball. They loved the comedian, quest, karaoke and love and marriage. They explored the ship and places to eat. The nightclub is a great late night place for this age group. If they are so inclined, there is always the casino. Plus, they enjoyed just hanging by the pool listening to the band in the afternoon. They had a blast!

They will do what all adults do..except the drinking. At 20, you're an adult...you'll not want "organized" activities. They'll be checking out the opposite sex 99% of the time!

and book their own cabin. We had to 'juggle' rooms traveling with our 20 yr old son and his friend.

I think it depends on the kids (young adults). My guys still enjoy the organized activities on board. When you are traveling alone or with a small group, it makes it much easier. Come to think about it, we do too!
