If you have never been on a cruise before you are in for the experience of your life. Cruising is really cool because you don't have to hang out with your parents. They know where you are, you're somewhere on the ship! You get a chance to meet new people and hang out with them for the whole trip, and do really cool stuff like swimming, going to beaches, hanging out in the disco and stuff like that.
The best cruises for teens are on the bigger ships, especially in the Caribbean because they have more
people and usually a lot more young people. The Carnival Destiny has an awesome disco, and the Celebrity Galaxy has a separate disco just for us. On Princess cruises the shore excursions are outstanding, and at night they have "coketail" parties. Some ships have separate coffee bars just for teens, and there is stuff for you to do all day long.
