We're planning to take our two daughters (ages 13 and 17) on a cruise next spring, leaning toward Royal Caribbean. I want to make sure before I go that they will be able to hang out together in the "teen areas"?? The Royal Carib. website lumps the 13-17 year olds together, but their brochure suggests they separate them into two groups (13-15 and 16-17)
Anyone have any insight?

Keep an eye on the 17 year old! They all want to be looked at as adults and will consider the teen activities as childish. Set down the rules before hand. Easier to lighten up than to get stricter as the cruise developes.

I have kids in both age groups. 2 14 yr olds and a 16 & 17. They all had a great time on all 3 RC cruise we took at Easter. Alot of kids on ship.
They do want freedom. The 14 yr olds would come back to the cabin around midnight. While the 16 & 17 yr old boys stayed up till 1:30 or so. They would hang out with the teen group kids around the pool or at the Windjammer eating. Cant get into much trouble. People always around. My kids would always talk about the cruises as their best vacations ever.

We cruised with our 17 & 12 yr old (who thinks he's 17) sons. They both found kids their own ages to hang around with. The 17 yr old did several of the organized teen activities with his group. He's a good kid and we never had to worry about him. He'd come in around 1 or 1:30 AM after just hanging out with the kids. Our 12 yr old thought his age organized activities too young, but he always found someone to swim or hang around with. He'd come back to the cabin around 11:15 PM. When not on an excursion or at dinner with us (most nights) they were off on their own having a blast! Have fun!
