Home / FAQ / Me And My Partner Are Under 21 Can We Travel On A Cruise On Our Own

Find Your Perfect Cruise

Me and my partner are under 21, can we travel on a cruise on our own?

Each cruise line has their own travel rules and regulations so there are some which don’t allow passengers under the age of 21 to travel on their own.

Each cruise line has their own terms and conditions of booking so you must check with your preferred cruise line what their own specific regulations are with regards to passenger ages.

In general the majority of cruise lines do not allow passengers under the age of 21 to travel on their own. Passengers must be accompanied by an adult 21 years of age or older on the day of embarkation.

In most cases passengers over the age of 18 can stay in their own cabin which does not need to be located next to or on the same deck as their guardian’s cabin but any passengers under the age of 18 must be in the same, adjoining or next cabin.

Where your cruise is travelling to can also have an impact on travelling age. When travelling with Royal Caribbean, for example, if you are travelling within North America then you must be at least 21 whereas if you are travelling within South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand you must be at least 18 years of age.

There are a few other cruise lines which allow passengers to travel alone if they are 18 years of age including both Azamara and Cunard.

The best thing to do if you are around 18 – 21 and wanting to travel as a couple or along is to double check with your preferred cruise operator what their specific travelling age regulations are or contact one of our Cruise Experts today and they will be able to advise you of  this.

Booked a 3 night stay in New York then a 9 night cruise to Bermuda, Curacao, Aruba and Fort lauderdale and added on a 2 night stay in Miami Kylie was fantastic sorting it all out for us. She sorted out cabins for us giving us all different options we ended up booking a infinite Verenda cabin on deck 7 on the New ship Celebrity Beyond that is coming out next year .....Excellent service well done Kylie and thanks for all your help... Would definitely recommend speaking to Kylie to book your holiday....We are so looking forward to this cruise as many of our holidays been cancelled due to covid.

They deserve the name CruiseKings, because they truly are.

We've used CruiseKings a few times, their staff are always friendly, well informed and professional. Booked a cruise this time very easily with the lady we spoke with and confirmation was received swiftly.

Always use Cruise Kings! Jo was amazing recently dealing with a cancellation from Fred Oulsen and rebooking with Celebrity. Refund back within 7 days and Celebrity upgrades - could not be better!!
