You didn't tell us which cruise line or ship; but my answer would be the same for any of them . . . . .no, it will not be big enough. Put another way, it can be done, but for a two-week cruise, it is going to get pretty uncomfortable.

I agree with F-mattox. Especially with teenagers. Think about all four of you trying to take turns for the shower and getting dressed. Two cabins will make for a more enjoyable cruise. Or depending what cruise line and ship look at a Family suite.

Since you are going on Grand Princess, you might consider a mini-suite; you still have only one bathroom, but at least you will have room to streatch out a little.

Two cabins may still be the better choice, even if they are inside cabins; but the minis have a nice large balcony and a sitting area, so you shouldn't be tripping over each other.

Princess also has a Family Suite, which is actually two connected mini-suites, which would be ideal--but also quite a bit more money.

I noticed some families with teens did an iside with a balcony across the hall.
I'm a morning person, so by the time I'm winding down, my son is ready to go.
In one cabin, when one of you is up, you're all up!

That's a good suggestion, poormom--the best so far. It's cost-effective, you get two bathrooms, and teens never spend much time in the cabin anyway.

Hi Challis, I'd go with deck 10 rear, just my opinion. Deck 5 on the Grand is closer to the exit when you debark for ports, though. I gather you're going to do 2 insides? I think you'd get less traffic on 10. We've sailed on the Caribbean and the Emerald, which are pretty much the same deck plans. On the Emerald we were on the Caribe deck and on the Caribbean the Riviera deck. The ships are so large there is very little motion. I am so excited for you, sounds like such a wonderful time for your family!
