Default meeting people on cruises???

im a teen, and the last 2 cruises i went on i went with my family and my family friends... i was the only teen in that whole group, i didnt meet anybody on the ship just some little 13 14 yr olds that played basketball and a 12 yr old girl... hella gay..... i cant really approach people alone out of nowhere... if i had someone that i already know at the teen center place i would have met everyone the damn ship.....

how can i go about meeting some new people on the cruise? most likely i will be alone going to the teen center...... are other people going through this same situation??? are most of the teens on the cruise alone on the first day???

You got to learn how to approach people straight up. Its the only way you'll actually get the most out of your cruise; I used to be like you, and it took me a good 3 or 4 cruises before I realized what needed to happen in order to meet as many people as possible; just be outgoing, be yourself, and try to remember that first meetings will always be awkward for both you and the other person. Don't let anyone introduce you; introduce yourself.

I have always cruised without bringing someone i know with me. Just go to the teen meeting on the first night and be yourself!!! A lot of other people will be just as shy/awkward since theyre in the same position as you..but theres always people who are always really outgoing and will want to get to know you and make you get involved.

First: Read my article and the section about this. Its entitled First Time Cruisers: Read This.

Second- with the exception of a few select cruises, where my 15 y.o. cuz (grl) has come with me, i always go to the club alone on the first night. However, I have never gone back to my cabin having not secured at least 5-6 friends on the first night (usually theyre primarily girls but w/e). If you have an open personality and know what your after, then you'll be golden. IM me sometime for some tips.
