Has anyone gone cruising with a eighteen year old and a fourteen year old (boys)? I'm planning on taking them on a cruise in April. Can't decide which ship in which fleet I should take. Just wondering if one ship is better than another for teens. Can anyone help?
I have two messages below yours with regards to teenagers. I have not received any response thus far. It looks like teenagers are not a hot topic on this message board. I hope that this is not an indication of how they are welcomed! I will let you know after our cruise in December. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage girls.
I don't have any teenagers but I have sailed twice on the Voyager class ships from Royal Caribbean. There is no way a teenager could ever get bored on these Mega ships. They would probably complain that they did not have enough time to do everything there is to do on these ships.
I have never sailed with Princess---first cruise will be in March on the Grand.
Hi, we happened to cruise last March on the Grandeur of the Seas (RCCL) and came upon spring break. The ship had over 500 kids of all ages on board with their families. They really had a lot of things for them to do. We had no complaints, oh they did like running in the halls at night but hey their kids. I would pick Royal Caribbean or Carnival for teens. Good luck on your choice and enjoy your cruise.
Thanks for responding to my message. I was thinking of RCCL or Carnival myself. I've checked them all out pretty good and they seem to have the most for kids to do. I went on a cruise with Princess last year and thought it was awesome.
If you choose a 7 day Caribbean on Princess there will be teenagers on board. More on the bigger ships during school breaks, than other times. Princess does limit the number of kids on board but your girls will find plenty to do and kids to hang-out with. We are sailing on the Golden in February during winter school break with 3 teenagers, plenty for them to do.
