We (myself, my husband, my 14 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter) are cruising President's week out of Cape Liberty, we've never cruised before and am a little concerned leaving out of the NY area in Feb, anyone experienced with it?????
Also my son is concerned there won't be enough for him to do please help!!
Sailing out of NJ in Feb it can be cold so bring a warm jacket.As for the kids sign them up for the Adventure Ocean on the first day I am sure your children will like it with all the activities,My grand daughters love it,the older GD goes into the teenage group and they have a ball,I hope they enjoy.
Haven't cruised with teens, but my BFF did all through her kids teen years and says once they got on the ship she saw them only at b'fast and dinner and sometimes not then. She used walkie-talkies to keep in touch. They all snorkle and scuba dive so they did excursions together, but she said some parents sent their teens on beach excursions while they went shopping. The only teen I ever heard of that was bored on a cruise ship was a computer addict who had to go cold turkey - he made everyone miserable.
I know he will have a great time but I guess he is a normal 14 yr old who just wants to make it difficult....!!!!!.....he is a "jock" so I know he will participate in a lot but like I said he is 14!!!!!!
If the kids like video games, buy card option early as possible and you can get double value for the money. My 14yo daughter love the boats this size with the rock climbing, putt golf, BB/VB court, teen center, Johnny Rockets. We are traveling on Voyager (same size) in Feb and have always found other teens for her to hang with. Tell them to relax, talk to other kids early when they see them to make quick friends and they will entertain each other. Enjoy.
Monogamous partnered GWM, 45 & 48. We enjoy meeting all kinds of people. We have 5 kids and travel sometimes with, sometimes without. Always looking for interesting people for conversation and friendships.
your kids will have a great time. With so much to do swimming, rock climbing, golf, ice skating. basketball, kids club, game room they won't be bored. you will have to get used to alot of "me time" for the week lounging by the pool with a drink in hand and the kids nowhere in site having a great time.

Hi Jad321, My family the 3 of us will also be on this cruise. My son is 15 we live in Long Beach, NY. This will be our second time on the EOS we sailed her in 2002 out of Miami we loved her then. We are really happy about not having to fly to Florida the Holiday week & + 2 extra nights what could be better!
It is a small world, I work in Oceanside. Its funny I keep telling my son, we are gonna see people that we know on vacation. I'm sure we are not the only people tring to save a little money by not having to fly to Florida. I was talking to a lady @ work the other day she is a Travel Agent in Baldwin and she said she has a group of 60 family and friends from Baldwin going the same week.
I think its all gonna be great! Talk to you later, Becky
