So, come to find out that the "age thing" does matter to some people. I still don't care but our fist encounter with age limits was pretty funny. Og and I were trying to find cruises for our honeymoon and we stumbled upon the perfect one; 5 night Western Caribbean on a new ship. Better yet, it was an amazing deal regarding pricing. We couldn't pass it up because it was so perfect. We filled out all the information (well Og did because he's in charge of the honeymoon. Delegate, right?). We clicked the ''book now" button and much to our abhorrence, the screen read "at least one person in your party does not meet the age requirement." Uh, crap. Well apparently, you have to be at least 18 to travel with out a parent or guardian on a cruise; meet that one. But if one is traveling under the age of 21, he or she must be accompanied by an adult 25 years of age or older. Problem: Paul is going to 23 and I am 19. So, i had him call the travel website directly (still delegating. Consistency, right?) and he worked with them for over an hour. The man who so kindly assisted him was named Bob. Now Bob thought it was very strange that a 19 year old girl and a 23 year old boy were traveling together but Og explained that we would be married at the time of the cruise. I guess we just have to bring our marriage license to the ship and it will all be fine. We got an ocean view stateroom on the 6th deck forward (that's good) with a king sized bed (that's awesome...) and Bob even threw in a Honeymoon Dinner for one of the nights. So kind of him. Bob. My favorite part of the whole ordeal was that when Bob was confirming all the information he said,
"OK, so how old is the lady you"ll be traveling with?"
Og replied, "she is 19, sir."
Then Bob said, "That's it?"
Og again replied " Yeah that's it. 19. sorry, sir."
