Yes, I did say that I don't like the curfew on RCL but I never 'trashed them.'

I am truly very sorry it irritated you wicked bad. I guess since I have no life then all I do is complain about RCL, and you get offended by this because you love them so much. Ok whatever floats your boat.

I'll point out that the curfew does make RCL a poor cruise line for teens. If I can go out at home without a curfew, why should I ask my parents to spend 3,000 plus dollars on an inside room on RCL just to have a curfew?

Yeah and one thing that really bothered me was the little kids, like the preteens who were always up to something (loitering, bothering people, knocking on doors) had the SAME curfew. It was crazy, my 17 year old friend had the same curfew as his 11 year old brother. I think they should do something about that for sure. Any curfew which restricts one from enjoying their vacation is terrible, but why cant the mature teens be able to stay out?

Okay, you may not have had trouble, but the majority (and I'm talking like upwards of 90%) of people have. If you haven't, thats awesome, but don't put down someone who had a bad experience either (especially when it is more than one person). Everything Peter has said is true for a large majority of people.

Curfew is annoying, without a doubt, and has earned RCL some pretty nasty reviews from teens mainly because no other cruise line has a curfew unless absolutely necessary (and I'm talking extreme circumstances). Every cruise line has its ups and downs, it just so happens RCL has a major downer.

Oh and I thought I would point out I watched the Explorer sailing away yesterday. Very fun

I'm agreeing with mike on this one. i went on rccl in 2006 my main issue was the curfew. i was walking around trying to find my mom for crying out loud and they approached me asking for my card. i showed it to them. at the time i was only 15 so they told me i needed to go back to my room. i was honestly looking for my mom but still i was walking around not even talking. the curfew does suck and i would sail carnival over royal anyday. carnival is cheaper therefore i get more cruises and now that im 18 either way i wont have the curfew but its still annoying to those who do that are on vacation and dont want it ruined by stupid deck patrol out to escort everyone back to their rooms as soon as 1am hits.

Overall, RCL is a pretty good line, I think. I was 15 in 2004 when I sailed on them. They have the potential to be a very attractive cruise line to teens, if they just get rid of the curfew and teach their security personnel better people skills.

That's just my 2 cents worth.
