We just came back from Explorer cruise and our 17 yr old daughter joined us for dinner. We went on the cruise critic roll call site and found out ahead of time if there were any kids her age (and her siblings'). The younger ones wrote to soem of the group. Cruise Critic also had a welcome party for us the 2nd day in Portofinos so that we all met each other after using different names on the site and there were give-aways and prizes as well. There are pictures and mail even after the cruise already and some are planning another cruise! Most times the kids eat with their new friends at Windjammer, esp if they don't want to dress up.
