Do any of you think it is worth going on a cruise with my parents, without a friend with me? I dont want to be stuck w/ them the whole time, but im not sure if im outgoing enough to go to the teen stuff and just, like, start talking to people. anyone got advice?
I have a tip on being outgoing. PRETEND that you are out going! People will think you are totally cool for it. Just start talking to someone in the line at the buffet or pool or someplace. Make a point of going up when there is someone your age there. Say something like, "Hey! I'm Lindsay! Who are you?" Then continue with where are you from, how old are you, who are you here with, have you met anyone, any hot guys?etc. It may seem weird at first, but think of it this way, wouldn't you LOVE if some hot guy or girl said that to you? You would think ,whoa, this person is totally self confident and fun! And come on, who doesn't love some one like that? If the person blows you off, just suck it up and be like "nice meeting you!" Good luck, and have fun! Love, Miss Manners (AKA Anna )
That is definitly good advice for everyone to take,(I think I see a new Ann Landers, lol) And I agree completly. But if you are truly shy and you think that there is no way that you could ever start just talkin' to someone, then dress your best and go to the teen program, the buffet, the dance club, etc. There will more than likely be someone there who is outgoing and if you are all dressed up then you are sure to be noticed. Be sure to have fun and try your best to mingle with other cruisers. You won't be stuck hanging out with your parents! Happy cruising!
