Default RLC Cruise - W. Caribbean, Port Canaveral 7/19/09

SO yea..
Royal Caribbean cruise leaving from Port Canaveral on July 19th, 2009. Its a western Caribbean cruise.
So yea, I think it would be really cool to meet some people BEFORE actually cruising. Sounds like fun to me.
So, anyone planning on attending the cruise?
I'm 16 by the way, and male.

Whats up man, your going to LOVE Freedom of the Seas! She's a fantastic ship and has SO many opportunities. Port Canaveral, too, is an awesome port to sail from and has the smoothest processing of any port i've been to. (Except mabye tampa, but its too hard to find) Stick around on here and you'll probably find someone on your sailing. June is "high count" season for RCI and the Freedom, being 1 of the 3 largest ships out there, has massive teen crowds in the summer and on holidays!

Alright coool.
Yea, I've got awhile to find some people that are cruising at the same time.
First time cruising with RLC. I went on a cruise to Alaska with NCL last summer, and wow, what a great experience.
Hope this cruise will be another fun one.

If the Norwegian trip was awesome, wait until you experience Freedom of the Seas. Theres so much more to do, so many more passengers, and imho the freedom is one of the most well designed and planned ships i've ever seen.

Really? it sounds quite fun.
Haha but i'm worried I won't be able to make the kind'ove friends I made on the NCL cruise. Because there are SO many people going, I feel like I will just be brushed off to the side and not really noticed haha. Whereas on the NCL cruise, everyone in their "teenclub" were friends.
Oh, and on the NCL cruise, i found a girl willing to hookup haha. Any chance of finding a girl on the RCL cruise? hahaha.

Its true that the larger ships have a larger teen group. However, this forms a more diverse teen group and ultimately, provides for a more interesting experience. Many times you'll find your own "group" within the teen group. Sadly a bit, its almost like high school with cliques and such, but most people usually get along very well on ships, no worries. My point is that you'll have probably 5-6 people who you'll spend much of your cruise with and then the rest of the teen crowd who you'll socialize with but more than likely just at night.

As for girls....well I personally have a rather extensive ship history and my Freedom of the seas cruise was nothing less than spectacular. Remember to be yourself and take things at the surface and you'll be just fine with your coed encounters.

haha alrightt.
This cruise sure sounds like fun.. but does RCL have a curfew?
Because NCL didn't, which made things so much fun, being out until like 3 in the morning, just walking around with friends.

Royal Caribbean has a 2am curfew for all guests 17 and under....it depends on a variety of factors as to whether they enforce it or not. Sometimes they're very lenient during spring break, other times the extreme opposite and they enforce it strongly. Usually if you look older, don't act a fool, and don't hang with a big group of younger teens, then you don't get bothered.

so if I were to just be hangin out with 3 or so people, and we all looked older, we'd be alright?
I've been told I look older than I am. Infact, I had a girl tell me I looked like a freshman in college haha, but i was a freshman in highschool at the time. I think she was intoxicated.

Hey! I'm not on your sailing but dont be discouraged! Alot of people dont even realize this site exists. Not only that its still a long ways until your sail date. So maybe someone will turn up before your sailing =) Goodluck!

Have you tried cruisecritic? A lot of adults go on there but I am sure you could find a way to contact with one of their teenagers through email or facebook or something

This is the roll call for your sailing http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=917537
There seems to be a lot of teens especially 17 year olds going on this sailing so check it out
