Default What is it like to cruise by yourself as a teen?

Like is it scary at first? Do you have to be careful who you hang out with?

like being the only teen in your family group?
or having a room and flying down by yourself?

i'm a little confused because you have to be 21
to be in a room by yourself.

You do not have to be 21 to cruise on your own. Certain cruiselines (i.e Princess and Disney) permit cruisers as old as 18 to cruise solo

guys i think the poster means what is it like to be alone as a teen on a cruise as in not bringing any friends, cousins, etc. its not bad at all.... go to the teen club on the first night and be social. youll have an amazing time if you meet lots of fun people!!

i've always been by myself.. it's amazinggg!
and i wouldnt have had it any other way.
but when i was younger, my sister and i would be in the same group of people.. or we'd be friends with like sisters (one being her age, and the other being mine..)

this time though, i think my cousins are coming with us. he's a year younger than me, but 2 grades younger than me. (so he's 16 and a soph)

and hopefully i can bring my best friend. cuz my sister went on her first cruise being over 17 this year.. and she said it was so hard to meet people and she wants to bring a friend too. and thats how its gonna be for me now..

Wrong! Princess changed the rules. =[

As for the original post.

BE OUTGOING! GO TO THE TEEN HANGOUT ON THE FIRST NIGHT!

Also, when you're just going around the ship, stop people who look around your age and say Hi, I'm ______.

If you follow those suggestions, I am positive you will have a fantastic time!
