Default Cruising and socializing as a 17 year old.

Im PROBABLY going on the carnival magic on a 7 day carribean cruise. Basically I want to know how to get girls and/or if this happens on cruises. What types/styles of clothing should I bring, where should I chill, and what is the general attitude of teens 15-17 on these cruises. Im 5'10, 17 years old, 150 lbs, slim six pack and not a very impressive chest hahaha. basically im an average looking dude. Flow (hair) im white. Im shameless, outgoing, but have a hard time starting/making conversation...so what is the general attitude of kids on these ships so i can make conversation come to me instead of the other way around
what should my style and attitude be and how can I stand out without standing out in an obnoxious or "what a weirdo" way.?

Also, havent booked any cruise just yet so which cruise has the best teen clubs in terms of leniency as in grinding, hook-ups, hours.

last, I have to ask, I am a drummer, a singer, and I can play some guitar, are there any opportunities to strum a bit with other kids in the teen club because you dont just go and say "hey! want to come hear me play guitar?" its a way to get out there and stand out as the kid who sang and playd guitar hahaha. Is there karaoke in an area thats not 18 and over? etc hahaha i knkow its a lot of questions but...hey, kids ask a lot of questions :P

Yes, hookups happen. I will not, however, be able to tell you how to make one happen - that's something you need to figure out on your own based on your style.
**side note, unless it's private message, public discussion of hooking up and/or how to hook up is typically prohibited on Cruisemates in general, not just the teen board.

Your style and attitude are who YOU are. If I tell you what your style or attitude should be then it wouldn't be your style anymore - it would be my style. Pick something you think works for you.

Carnival tends to be more lenient on grinding and hours than Royal in my experience. Royal still has a 1am curfew for all cruisers under 18.

Sadly, there are no karaoke areas that allow under 18 to participate regularly. There might be one night of teen karaoke, but in my experience, unless you take a really tight knit group to do it, you'll be hard-pressed to find people willing to go.

Yeah, you'll meet chicks. Do you hit the gym at all? I would definitely hit up the gym before your cruise, get jacked. You can never get too jacked.
For personality, just be yourself. Just make sure you're friendly, super chill, and you'll be fine.
I play guitar and sing as well, and there is absolutely no opportunity to play guitar. Luckily my buddy brought along some guitars so we were all good. There is karaoke nights at some teen clubs, you just have to have the balls to get up there and do it.
Thats all I've got, have a good cruise!

When I was 16, I'm 20 now, I went to the teen club. I met a good group of people and we never attended the teen club again lol.

Its a good place to meet other people your age and talk to people. You tend to make a clique for the week and its nice to see and hang with people so open and fun

And hook ups do happen...one week on board? Yea it'll happen. Just be yourself. Outgoing is a great plus
