My mom took me on a 4 night cruise on the Sovereign of the Seas as our first cruise together. It was a lot of fun!

my mom is always the one who takes me cruising...just myself and her...we've went on carnival all 3 times and had a great time, although we didn't do much of anythign together...just kinda did our own thing.

Ya I would say any RCI Voyager-Class ship as well, really popular with teens.

if i were a parent going along with my daughter... i wouldn't go on a huge ship.. because i assume you would want to see her around the ship, and on a large ship that wouldn't happen.. i mean... you would only see her probably at dinner time.. UNless u want that.. i don't know.. nvm...

really good point actually...

the big ships will be really fun but your daughter may be too occupied with the tons of other teens.. then again she might want to hang out alot with the teens on any ship........???

I went on Splendour of the Seas which is an amazing cruise ship! It's Royal Carribian but it's not too big so you can see your daughter often but it was really fun! Also Brilliance Of The Seas which is slightly larger but still amazing. They are both perfect for teens and I made loads of friends!! I'm going on the Galaxy so I will let u know about that.

Ya I think any of the RCL ships (except empress of the seas) would be great. But I guess it all matters what your looking for and the time. Most RCI ships usually have lot's of teen activites so u may not see your daughter that much but it matters what you want. If I were u I would also try talking to a local travel agent and see what she thinks too.

well sir what kind of money do you want to spend? if you can go for the big bucks i would try one of the rci class smaler ships. If your not willing to spend as much i would try something like carnival.
Hope this helps

It depends, I hate Royal Caribbean and so does my family no offense to anybody. My family goes on Princess alot because my mom likes that they limit the amount of kids and teens on the ships, the time we went on Royal Caribbean nobody dressed up, the people my age had a real attitude problem and they throw deck chairs off the side of the ship and broke windows, and also the food on Royal Caribbean was awful. We've also done Celebrity a long, long, long, long time ago and they were really nice.

Also, it depends on when you are going for a cruise and when. If you did a longer cruise there's tons of old people. If you do a shorter cruise you get lots of younger people and more families because sometimes they can't afford the longer cruises. I'd go on a Mexican Riveria or a Caribbean cruise because that will probally be the funniest for you. If you do a longer cruise you can do Europe, Hawaii, South Pacific, South America and Panama Canal.

Good Luck deciding on what cruise you'll do.

Ya the limit the amount. You really can't tell they limit it. But it is kind of nice when there's tons of little kids that like to scream and never shut up.

Mmmm...well, it depends what kind of things you like. I'm assuming that you and your dad are not exactly the same in your likes and dislikes. For example, my father likes very mellow, reserved ships, and I like ones with lots of younger people and activity (but not too much). Celebrity is pretty good.

Well the food on RCL sucked. We were on the Rhapsody and that was some of the worst food my family and I have ever eaten and were not picky eaters. It could have been the cruise too.

something like Carnival legend or RCI Voyager if i would choose between those 2 would definitly say Voyager, Or the really big ships with more of a teen population because theres nuthing better than spending a vacation together with a new just met friend !
