Virgin Holidays Cruises

disney stay cruises

Carnival Cruises - Carnival Liberty, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Splendor

Best features: For older teens, 15 to 17 years old, there's a mixer on the first evening, late-night parties in the disco every night, and afternoon Ping-Pong tournaments and sport challenges. Younger teens, 12 to 14 years old, have their own parties earlier in the evening, with later-evening activities such as pizza hangouts, T-shirt decorating and game nights. There are also teen spa services and a discounted teen shore excursion program where the kids vote on which tour to take.

Royal Caribbean Cruises (Navigator of the Seas, Voyager of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas) and Freedom-class (Freedom of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas and Independence of the Seas) ships.

Best features: One big plus is that Royal Caribbean's youth program divides teens into two groups. Navigators (tweens, 12- to 14-year-olds) are wisely separated from the Teens (15- to 17-year-olds) for activities like Karaoke, toga parties and sports tournaments. Parents are banned from The Living Room, Back Deck and Fuel -- the teens-only facilities where teens can drink mocktails and dance the night away (until 2 a.m.).

Norwegian Cruise Line - Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Jewel and Norwegian Pearl
Best features: Teens will gravitate to the teen-only club/disco as well as the ships' video arcades, basketball courts, paddle tennis and giant chessboards. Norwegian's newest ships (Gem and Pearl) also have onboard bowling. A special Teen Passport Program is available -- for $34.50, your teen can order 20 smoothies and other nonalcoholic drinks, and attend an afternoon dance party with a DJ, pizza and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks, as well as a farewell party on the last evening.

Disney Cruise Line - Disney Magic and Disney Wonder

Best features: Called Aloft on Disney Wonder and The Stack on Disney Magic, the no-parents-allowed teen center is a terrific hangout, with overstuffed couches and chairs, big-screen TVs and a bar serving soft drinks and smoothies. Teens can entertain themselves with MP3 players, Internet access, board games and events (such as karaoke, dance classes and trivia games) led by hip crew members. Outside their private haunt, teens will enjoy watching movies (like "Pirates of the Caribbean") out on the pool deck and Disney's over-the-top evening deck parties.

Star Clippers Cruises

Best features: A platform lowers from the ship's stern for water sports. Teens can climb the mast to the crow's nest and watch the dramatic hoisting of 42 sails each morning.

P & O Cruises
