Question Cruisin in November with Teens

My family, including 2 teen sons (14 and 17), are planning a cruise on Norwegian Epic this November. Has anyone cruised with teens in November? I'm just a little nervous that they will be the only teens there since it is not during a school break.

I do understand your worry.

I doubt they'll be the only teens on board as it's a big ship, but just far less than what you'd see during school breaks.

I've taken my children on cruises when there was no school break before, and although there were plenty of children in their age-group, I do recall a 13-year-old being alone in his age-group once. This was years ago now. I do hope this isn't the case come November, just before Thanksgiving break when we know the ship will be full of them yet I still insisted on booking Nov 14 after children begging me to book that Thanksgiving cruise again—and for this very reason.

We just went on a Thanksgiving cruise this past November and there was an overabundance of teens on board.

It will be quite a change cruising the week before Thanksgiving no doubt.

I'm not so worried that they'll be the only ones on board but rather that they'll be let down in comparison with having so many on this past Nov 2010 one and then this upcoming March spring break one. Just hoping they clique well with the few that do sail that week.

I was on the Epic in November,and there were lots of kids, but more younger children if memory serves me right. I't might be tougher for teens to get out at this time, perhaps due to tests, etc...

I am sure, even with a lower age group around for them, they will still have a ball.

it is rare today to find only a few kids, regardless of age on a cruise. What week are you cruising?
