We are considering booking a eastern caribbean cruise next summer on Freedom on the Seas. We a have 16 year old son. He will most probably be playing basketball most of the time. Besides playing basketball what do they have for teenagers. I know they have a disco etc. He loves music not much into dancing though. What type of activities do they have. Like team building activities, foosball tournaments etc.. Anything like that? I would appreciate previous cruisers input on this subject. Thanks in advance.:D

My 15 yo son loved the autonomy of going to the Cafe promenade and having pizza and soda, they have wii tournaments, there's and arcade. They also get groups together to see the shows and did a Windjammer dinner.
They also have games of dodge ball and mini golf.
On our last crusie he got to be friends with another boy who he's still in touch with!
As boys will do, they hooked up with two girls and on formal night they went around to all the photographers and had pictures done! I never would have thought to do that and they came out amazing. ( and I'm a cheapskate when it comes to pictures).
I assure you he won't be bored.

Welcome to Cruise Reviews.

There is a lot to do on the Freedom class of ships. The basketball court is full-size and they also do volleyball there and some other games. You also have the Flowrider boogie-board/surfing venue. They have the Living Room 'kicked back' area for teens, and as you mentioned the 'Fuel' disco, which is for teens only.

The Freedom has an outstanding fitness center which your son will like.

The Freedom is a great ship for teens. We were on the inaugural voyage of Freedom and it is one of our favorite ships.
