Buffet, I read you question, and then re-read it, and I have a few explanations for you. Camp Carnival is for the younger kids. O2 club is what you are talking about. I went to get my kids copy from our cruise last week, and my teens said that it changed all the time, and they could give you some general ideas about what to expect, but that by the time you cruise, could be completely different.

Excursions for teens with the Counselors is something you don't hear about much. I didn't even know they existed until someone else asked on another board. It was not offered on the last 4 cruises that we have taken. I am glad that they weren't, because I would have had to say no.

I am not sure if you have cruised before, but at that age even on the ship, the counselors have very little responsibility. The kids go in and out of the club at will, and they only try to organize things for those in attendance. This is not to offend anyone, but some of the group leaders we have met, have not been all that responsible.

I hope this helps. Be sure to tell the kids about the teen board on Cruisemates, where they can get all kinds of info that relates to them.

Also if I can be of any help, please ask.

I would be very nervous to allow my teens off the ship without me. In some of these ports, adults are targets, and children are just fresh meat. That is not to say that everyone in every port are bad people, but just like on a ship, you have to be careful.

If it will help, allow me to tell you what we do. I pick excursions that I think the kids will like. We discuss it as a family, and then I order them myself. Sometimes it is to rough for me, so hubby goes with them, but at least there is someone with them, and can make decisions for them, if danger should find them.

Default Thanks for well thought advice

Thank you for taking the time to post the well thought advice.
I was comfortable or so I thought, booking if it was thru Carnival as I thought responsible counselors as a group would go.
In hind sight, I guess a family vote is in order on what to book
Luckily mom vote counts twice .

Thanks for the advice of reason.

I was really worried about saying anything. I didn't want to over step the bounds, but sometimes, we simply don't know how it is, and need someone to say something. I also didn't mean to say that the teen leaders were all irresponsible. I think most do the best job they can, but they are usually not much more than kids themselves. On our cruise last week, there were at least 100 teens. So many that they could not all fit in the club at the same time. There is no way that a teen leaders could handle that many.

Default Well said

I agree, and only took comments as willing advice. The counselors by far are under appreciated and can be commended for corraling that many teens!
