Can I get my 8 year old in the 9 year old Adventure Ocean group?
My 8 year old boy is turning 9 about a month. We are cruising on the Enchantment this Friday. He is quite smart for his age and is going to feel old and quite left out when he sees the facilities for the older kids. He felt this way 2 years ago and was only 6. Can I just tell the AO staff that he is 9 or just tell the truth and ask nicely if they would be willing to let him slide? I don't want him to feel like he is missing out (I'm not having any of this conversation in his presence) on this vacation that he has eagerly waited for. I have a 3 year old girl as well who talks like a 5 year old (better, actually), but I think she'll love her first cruise and is well within the age group for Aquanots.
Looking for our next cruise!
