Hi Lela, My 17 yr. old son & a friend of his, also 17 are cruising with our family. They are hoping that there will be kids their ages going. Usually, we cruise later in the Summer, and we weren't sure what to expect so soon after school lets out.
BonVoyage!

Glad to hear that there are so many going! My son still keeps in touch with some kids he met on a cruise almost 2 years ago. His friend has never cruised and he is REALLY looking forward to June!

He'll have a fantastic time! This will be my son's 5th cruise on Carnival (we went on the Triumph and Sensation last summer). My only complaint is that the teenagers find each other and then disappear for the whole cruise -- I felt like a stalker once at the ice cream machine, waiting for his "pack" to show up one afternoon so that I could give him a message. We set ground rules about the number of times he needed to check-in each day, which meals he was expected to join us, and when he needed to be in his cabin. Our ground rules were a lot stricter than the parents of the other kids he met..I have a new ground rule after the last cruise -- do NOT buy a girl long-stemmed roses on your mother's sign & sail card!!! If your nephew would like, please e-mail me privately with his e-mail address and my son will write to him to answer any questions that he might have..

Thank you Sharon, I will talk to him tonight.

This is the first cruise for most of our family that is going and a first for all of the kids.

My husband and I have cruised without kids in the past but always missed them too much.

We are taking 2-way radios to keep in touch with them.

Where are you from?

We're from Pittsburgh -- in addition to the two boys, we also have a 10 year old daughter. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions at all, since we've done this so many times before!!! You'll all have a wonderful time!!!.

Sharon, I had to laugh at the "Rose" incident! This will be my son's 3rd cruise. On his first cruise, he racked up a bar tab of almost $90.00 because he was buying Virgin Pina Coladas for his new buddies. He didn't know that we had to pay for them - he thought EVERYTHING on the ship was free! We still tease him about this. Lela, I'm sure that your kids will LOVE cruising! My son absolutely loves it! The 2-way radios are a great way to keep in touch - though at times, my son was not able to hear us because of music, etc.. Having set check-in times helped me not to worry, because as Sharon's son did - my son disappears too! He was 14 when he first sailed with us. He absolutely wanted nothing to do with the idea of going to the teen club. I put my foot down & told him that he had to go the first evening; if he hated it, he didn't have to go back. Well.......he met a group of kids that he hung around with for the entire cruise! They did very little with the actual teen program, but they had a ball.
