Default Rules on Cruise?

Ok...first of all, Im a parent We're taking our kids with us when we cruise this time, and I wondered from the teen cruisers, what rules do your parents insist upon when you're on board?? I want my kids to have a great time, but I don't want it to be a free for all ya know?

My kids are a 10 yr old son, 14 and 16 yr old daughters.

Thanks for the info !

My parents have 3 major rules...I'm sure others have more or less, but this is what mine are.
1. No boys in our room (my friend and I will have our own room on the Adventure and my mom is pretty serious about this one.)
2. No drinking
3. I have to check in with them every few hours.

I don't have a curfew. Hope this helps! Happy Sailing!

My parents only rules are

3. Be at the table for dinner

Didnt have a curfew except when we went into port the next day, and then my curfew was 2am.

Make the rules a lil strict on your teenagers...I know how teenagers are, im 17! but the basic, no boys/girls in the room, check in every now and then, and be at dinner is usually what most parents do..thats what mine do.

I just have to check in every so often and also the dinner thing BUT the food is better in the dining room so I don't mind. The rest of the stuff my parents just trust me, guess I don't give them any cause to doubt my choices

My only rules on the cruise were to be at dinner and check in a few times. Other than that have fun because my parents trusted me.

Cynda,

My suggestion is to make the rules age appropriate. Most of the teens on this board have offered rules that I use with my kids. One thing that I do use is hand held walkie talkies. That way if something comes up we can just radio each other, instead of having to take the time to hunt each other down.

It really does depend on your child and how old they are, how old they behave, and the level of maturity and turst that you can give them. When we started cruising we took our then youngest with us when he was 13. He was to eat dinner with us and when we were in port he was to go with us ashore. Other than that he pretty much had the run of the ship. The reason was he was very reliable and mature and never gave us any problems and had earned our trust. Now had the next to the youngest gone with us we would not have allowed him out of our sight anymore than necessary. <G> The ship overall is a very safe place so long as the child uses common sense and has good character. Some need more watching than others and the only one that should really know the answer as to the lenght of the leash is you, the parent.

i have gone on many cruises - i could always stay out till as late as i feel -- if my mom put restrictions on me i would get mad and it mite not make the trip as fun --- the only thing they inforced was to go to dinner with them - and dress properly ( in pants)... other then that i would go out and pretty much go crazy.
