1. Just be yourself, but be outgoing. Never be shy. Just feel free to go up to anyone, and say hi. You have tons of conversation starters, as you're all on the same boat.
2. Same thing. Personally, I'm most attracted to girls that just come out and say hi, and that are outgoing and colorful. Just treat a guy like he was anyone else, and definitely don't be shy.
3. I definitely know where your coming from. My last cruise we had two people in our crew that we just could not get rid of. We had to resort to things like running into elevators, zipping around corners, literally trying to lose them. My tip would be just to not lead them on in the first place. If you're talking to someone you don't necessarily like, be polite, but try to get someone else to pull you out of the situation, or simply say "While it was nice meeting you" and walk away.
4. The teen club, in my opinion, is the best place to meet people you're age. The one on Carnival looks really good, as the age group is 15-17, rather than 13-17 like on other cruises. On my last cruise, I was 16, and the teen club was full of younger kids. Aside from O2 though, I always met teens while I was in the gym (a good conversation starter in the gym is athletics), or at the pool (especially the hot tub, don't be shy, just climb in).

That's pretty much all the info I can give you, have fun on your cruise!

1. Just talk to people. Also, become friends with the teen director, teens a lot of the time hang out around him/her, so if you're cool with the director who's always very friendly and outgoing, then you should be fine.

2. I'm a guy so I can relate to talking to cute girls but not the other way around. Just talk to her (or in your case talk to him), be funny, confident, outgoing, etc.

3. Don't lead them on in the first place.

4. O2 is the best place on Carnival. Besides that, the gym and pool are good, and don't laugh, to be completely serious sometimes the videogame arcade is a good place to meet other teens, the different games in there, such as challenging someone to air hockey, are good ice breakers.

thanks!
1) the way i met people was going to the teen room on the first night where i met 2 teen boys.. i was lil timid at first but they helped a lot i started the conversation with "so where are u guys from?" that's how i met everyone on the ship.. that little question brought a lot of fun and joy to my cruise. =)

2) again ask him where he's from, what he likes to do for fun where he lives, what is it like there. i always asked if they played sports. and i know i i don't understand just smile and nod. act interested. they like that. ;p

3) i struggled with this and it ended up on the last night with me almost getting pushed through a glass door....but that is EXTREMELY rare! and he had ALOT of anger problems... if there is someone you don't like say "oh man what time is it? i have to go meet my family" and walk away... or just say "i'm gonna go take a nap in my cabin i'll be back down later" that's what i usually do... just try to avoid them.. a cruise without drama is sorta unrealistic but hanging with the non-drama group is prolly best idea...
4) the buffet. i met this rlly girl in the buffet bathroom of all places. and we were attatched at the hip the whole cruise... though i don't recomend the BATHROOM but the buffet is where i met a few teens.. and the hot tub/pool.. there were VERY few teens on my cruise... which was sad but it was in the beginning of Feb. so that's why... but idk when ur going... if it's from like june on there should be a lot of teens.. even this month there are LOTS of teens on spring break right now..

just be yourself... and don't forget to be outgoing nd just go up to people and say hi... remember no one knows eachother.. they're allin the same situation as you. so don't be afraid to just say "HI! Where are you from?" =)
hope that helps
