How old do you have to be to drink on a carnival cruise once you are out of U.S. waters? Is it still 21? I know you can drink in mexico at age 18.

Thanks for any help.

Yes, they say 21 and they say "strictly enforced". But I have seen 16 + year olds drinking on every Carnival cruise I have been on.

It is 21. I was 19 when I was on the Carnival Elation and was not allowed to drink. I did see many young people drinking though... don't know how they got it (maybe older friends or parents) WHO KNOWS
