    Hi Mom's me again! i'm a part of a large group planning on cruising for the first time in Jan 2016. One of our families has a 13 and 14 year old. What types of activities are aboard Disney Cruise ship Magic for them to do?

    The teens will have a blast, Kelli - no doubt about it!

    My teens cannot wait to hit the Youth Clubs whenever we sail with Disney. There is just so much adventure waiting for them, and meeting new friends their age with similar likes (and dislikes) adds more excitement into the mix. My kids have kept in touch with numerous friends they've met on our previous cruises... their friends around the world remain connected with them via emails and social networking sites.

    Besides enjoying the AquaDunk on board, the 13 and 14 year olds will get a chance to check out Edge on the Disney Magic. The youth counselors are awesome and keep the kids engaged and happy whenever they hang out there... there are daily supervised activities and even an awesome scavenger hunt that has been a highlight for the kids. They've also got computer games, consoles, and sports activities planned. For the 14-17 year old age group, there's the chic club, Vibe, to check out on board. Now parents aren't even allowed in there -- they'll even get a special Vibe Key to the World Card. The Vibe has the trendy upbeat feel to it -- and there are parties, games and activities that are planned daily.

    Make sure you check out the Personal Navigator each day - it will list the activities and schedules at each youth club. The kids should definitely be at the youth clubs on the 1st night during Ice Breaker events... that's when everyone gets a chance to meet other kids, all at the same time. 

    Sailing with Teens and Tweens on the Disney Cruise is loads of fun, Kelli -- fun for the kids and fun for the parents! 

    I hope this helps!
