So, here is the difference between being the mom and being the dad...I think the kids (2 fairly responsible 15 year old girls) need to check in every 2-3 hours, and eat dinner with us every night but the one my wife and I are dining in the Norwegian Star's Le Bistro, and will be doing the " family shore excursion" in Acapulco, otherwise they may come and go as they please until curfew(1am). My wife wants them to check in every hour, wants to know who they are with, what they are doing, etc. The kids know that the penalty for doing the wrong things is that they get to spend every waking hour with us. Having been on a few cruises, I have noticed that teens for the most part do not get in too much trouble, because the majority of the parents are like us, and do take the time to make sure that our kids are not getting into trouble, and do take care of it when it happens. By the way my wife has seen the light and now sees that every 2-3 hours is okay for checking in.
