Most parents would say that it is impossible to communicate with teenagers any place any time ...

However, lots of families have found that small walkie talkies work well on board ship. You have to teach the kids to minimize their use so as not to disturb others. (Good luck.)

OTOH, many parents find that the ship is a relatively safe environment and are willing to allow their teens a substantial amount of freedom, with certain required check in times set.

Have a GREAT cruise!

I've heard that the vast amounts of metal that make up ships make FRS hard to use. I read a thread on here where post its were used a lot. Put one on the mirror with where you are going or where you want to be at a specific time, and also state that you should visit the cabin at such and such time to check or update said post its.

john makes a very valid point, there has to be an adult over the age of 25 registered in the teens cabin. Princess has a very good teen center, sign the kids up, depends upon the ages and maturity of your teens , our teens were older 15-17, they hung out together and we had specific check in and meeting times and places.

Yes, the cruise lines will make exceptions to the policy for kids traveling with their parents and in a nearby cabin. Your Travel Agent can take care of it for you.

Some people try to dodge around the technicalities by booking a parent and a child in each cabin. This is unnecessarily complicated and requires switching key cards.

There is a teen section on Cruisemates where you might ask:

1. How do teens/parents stay in touch on board?
2. Are there any teens that will be on the same sailing?

Post in the Princess Meet on Board section of Cruisemates.
