Hi If you go with Royal Caribbean you can sign a "Beverage Waiver Form" which will enable her to drink beer and wine on board. I am certain that other cruise lines have this facility but best to check with whichever line you choose. regards....Nei.

Not sure about cruise ships, but travelled to America with 20 year old son and were not even allowed to have wine with dinner. In palm springs they immediately asked his age and were not allowed to enter the restaurant. Sad thing was we were a family group hoping to have a once in a lifetime holiday whilst we had our sons still at home with us and it made it very difficult for all of us. One restaurant in Sedona actually removed his wine glass at the dinner table and watched us like hawks. I would check it out first as they were very strict. Lyn.

GILLILAND here, thanks Lynn &neil, I was hoping for a reply from the cruise lines OR their AGENTS! After all ITS OUR MONEY that keeps them in business.

Hi Gilliland, You can paste the question on the web-site "contact us" section of all the cuise lines you might be interested in. That way you could get a reply from them and I am not sure how strict P&O or Fred Olsen would be as they run under British standards The Waiver form should be part of your question though...See ya....Nei.

You might have less problem with a European cruise line operating out of the Cribbean. However you may find that they apply different rules when they are in US waters than in other durisdictions. For example when I was on a Caribbean cruise one time, I kept finding various things changed when we sailed into US waters like suddenly no jugs of milk on the tables or fruit decorations on cocktails because of US health regulation.

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Well I am back from my Italian holiday and I paid a visit to Trento, the capital city of Trentino Alto Adige in the north of Italy nestled between the Alps. The drive to Trento was lovely and the view driving through by car was amazing, we were surrounded my mountain by their white tips all the way there. Verona to Trento is about 1 hour and there are good train connections.We visited an Aeronautical museum of Giovan Battista Caproni, one of the most important engineers of Aeroplane’s h...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
