Default windsurf and teens

We are traveling to Europe next summer with grandparents and our teens (age 16). Do you think that teenagers would enjoy this cruise line? They are water sports oriented, not at all party oriented teens. Thanks!

Windstar's European itineraries are very port intensive, so most days will be spent touring on shore. There should be opportunities for your teens to engage in water sports, though not as many as they would have in the Caribbean.

You should be aware that it is unlikely there will be other teens aboard, plus there will be nothing for the kids to do at night except watch videos in the cabin, read or star gaze on deck. As long as they are self-sufficient and can entertain themselves they should be fine.

We were on this ship in December in the Caribbean. The youngest person on board was a 23 yr. old. She was traveling with her parents. I think younger persons would be somewhat bored with the cruising part of the trip. The water sports will be much less on a European trip than in the Caribbean. If the ship still has the same captain, you will like him a lot. He is very approachable and friendly, not to mention good looking. We loved the ship and the whole experience. Happy cruising!!! Robb

We took the windsurf this past May-Rome to Noce--there were just 2 twenty yr old girls on there and they didn;t know each other--this is NOT the atmosphere for teenagers-there are water sports during the day--but not much of a night life-no discos-just 1 large lounge and a casino---you sort of make your own fun--it is terrifc for honeymooners,yuppies,and its an upscale casual cruise...
I wouldn't take kids on it--
