Hi Karen,
Be sure to look into any of Royal Caribbean's "Voyager" class ships. Since you are cruising with a 12 year old, these ships are great for that, lots of activities onboard and a great kids program. There is also Carnival to check out as well.

I wrote an article titled "Single Parent Cruising" which is on the main family cruise page of this site. Scroll down until you see it. Perhaps it'll be helpful.
Smooth sailing,

That seems to be a huge thing for kids...WHAT IF I'm the only teen on the ship?????

So, has that ever happened ? Anyone been the only under 18 person on board?

I also think that every teen on board brings all their friends from home -- and everyone knows everyone else before they get on board, thats right . .. .
