Hello to all, your advice would really be appreciated if you can spare a few minutes--my wife and I would like to take a Mexican Riveria cruise this February and take our 16 year old son on his very first cruise. We've only been on two cruises before, both without our son...one when we got married to the Western Caribbean (on Royal Caribbean) and the other on our 10th Anniversary to the Mexican Riv (on Carnival). What is most important to me on this particular cruise is that my son has a really good experience....he's wanted to go on a cruise with us since he was a little guy. I would like to go on a cruise that has activities for teens, where he could meet up with other kids and do interesting things, rather than have to hang out with "the folks" the entire time. We are thinking of the Carnival Pride--a seven night cruise that goes to the same ports that were on our 10th Anniversary cruise. Can anyone tell me how this particular cruise line/this particular ship is for teens? Is there enough going on that makes it interesting for them? Is there any way to find out more about it from the cruise line? It won't be long until my son is "out of the nest" and moving on in his life and I'd like him to have a fun experience to look back on with fond memories.

I would REALLY appreciate some advice from anyone who has been on this ship and brought a teen with them, or just has knowledge of what it's like for a teen........it would mean a lot to me!

Thanks very much!

Most likely your son will meet some other teens to hang out with. The ship has volleyball, basketball, shuffle board, ping pong, and a jogging track. It has a video center Real Virtuality with 32 high tech video games ranging in .50-$2.00. Plans are in the works to add a 9 hole miniture golf, and a Club 02 teen center. I don't have a date when that may be. The ship also should be showing movies on the tv in your cabin, and may show some on big screen in the lounge. The library may have some books or board game that might interest your son. There's also the internet cafe (ofcourse for a fee)and the pools (one with the famous Carnival slide). He probably will hang out at the 24 hour pizza too. I hope everyone has a great cruise.
