Agreed !! Just be yourself and enjoy the cruise....

I will share this story.... our son is now 20 and has Autism.

As you can imagine, that can be a tough thing, when you are thrown into a bunch of 15 -17 year olds that you do not know.

He is very high functioning and always made lots of friends on cruises.

How? He was just himself. He has an incredible sense of humor and most teens that have taken the time to get to know him....end up hanging with him the rest of the cruise.

So go...and just be yourself and have a wonderful cruise!!


If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
