I definitely agree with the other postings....just returned from Voyager 1/19 sailing and there were lots of kids that age on board and they definitely seemed to "connect" and get together on board. I would say that any of the Voyager class ships (Voyager, Exporer, Navigator or Adventure would be a great choice for kids of any age. You may want to make another choice if you don't enjoy kids, however, because there are a lot of them. I would say that the ports of call are secondary to the ship in the case of cruising with kids in this case. Although our teen son thoroughly enjoyed climbing Dunns River Falls in Jamaica and swimming with the Stingrays in Cayman, if that is of any help. Either way, the Voyager class ships are amazing and the best cruise experience we've ever had.
